Trip Overview

Langtang Gosaikunda Circuit Trek is a beautiful journey in Nepal. This trek is a combination of secret Langtang Valley, Holy Gosaikund Lake and rich cultural area Helambu. Langtang Circuit Trek offers breathtaking views of lush forests, picturesque villages, abundant wildlife and the majestic Himalayas.

Having explored the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu the journey begins with a scenic drive to Syabrubesi to embark real trek to Langtang valley. The trekking route passes many traditional settlements and ancient monasteries that have remained unchanged. Reaching Kyanjin Gumba, walking along with Mani walls and climbing to Tserko Ri provides an amazing experience and offers a mesmerizing view of the Langtang Himal ((7,200m). Next, continue trek to Gosaikunda, a pilgrimage site for Buddhists and Hindus. The place is named after the holy lake Gosaikunda and its water is considered to have magical healing power. The lake remains crowded during the festival of Janai Purnima and also believed a dip in the holy lake washes away all the sins of a lifetime. The trek passes several lakes, crosses the Laurebina Pass then enters the Helambu Valley. There are several viewpoints and spots along the trek from where the Himalayan view is so close that you feel they are within touching distance. The closing views of Shishapanga and the Langtang range also make this trek lifetime memorable. The trek continues in Helambu for a few days and takes a drive back to Kathmandu to end the memorable Langtang Circuit Trek. 

We consider this trek as a moderate to strenuous trek. So, this route does not necessarily require extreme experiences of climbing. However, your positivity, enthusiasms, and strong determination are mandatory. Although this trek remains open whole year, the most suitable time to travel is March to May and September to December.

Tomas and Inma, USA

My girlfriend and I did both the Langtang and Gosaikund Pass Trek with Amazing Nepal Trek and Expedition. We planned our trip from the United States and corresponded regularly with Santosh (one of the co-owner) in Nepal via phone and email. He was very helpful and worked with us to create a custom itinerary. The guide spoke great English! We enjoyed our trip and would book with them again!
