Langtang, Gosainkunda and Helambu Trek, combining both rural and dramatic Himalayan scenery along with diverse cultural contacts, is one of the most popular treks in the Helambu and Langtang regions, which lie north of Kathmandu, between Kathmandu and Tibet. It is also a physically challenging trek, which includes the climb up to Tserko-Ri as well as the crossing of the pass called Laurabina-La.
After two days of sight-seeing and trek preparation in Kathmandu, we drive north to Syabrubesi. Thus, this trek begins just like Treks 18 and 19 above. We spend two nights at Kyangjin Gompa, where we can hike up to spectacular Tserko-Ri. Then, after leaving Lama Hotel, we switch trails to access the sacred Gosainkunda Lakes via Sing Gompa. These gorgeous lakes are an important pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists, many of whom are drawn here during the full moon festival each August.
We then cross over Laurabina-La (4608m/15,120'), which like all Himalayan passes offers a breathtaking panorama. Our journey now brings us out of the Langtang Region and into the Helambu Region. We overnight at several varied villages, including Ghopte, the much larger Malemchi Gaon, then Tarke Ghyang, and finally Sermathang. From there we trek to Malemchi Pul Bazaar,from which we drive back to Kathmandu.
This fascinating route will have brought us into contact with a number of different ethnic groups, including the Sherpas, Tamangs, Yolmus, and Bhotias. We will also have experienced some of Nepal's most thrilling Himalayan vistas, all within the short space of seventeen days, and all within a day's drive of Kathmandu. Our adventure ends with a farewell dinner back in Kathmandu, after which we fly home, bringing countless photos and unforgettable memories.
We had an amazing experience trekking in the LangTang valley. Since it was my first time in Nepal, I did not know what to expect. Birendra organized everything on our itinerary, from site seeing in Kathmandu to all of our needs while trekking for 10 days. Since Birendra is native to Nepal, he is well connected and was able to arrange everything we needed. As for the trekking, our guide Kamal was very knowledgeable about the terrain and always had our safety in mind. He always made sure we were well fed and comfortable in each Tea house we stayed at. I would not trust anyone else but Birendra's team at Adventure Club Treks. They're the best! I would 100% recommend them to anyone, all skill levels.
The owner, Birendra, had provided me so much information about what kind of trekking was the best in Nepal for me and, indeed, The "Langtang trekking" was the best option for me (not a very long trekking, not very difficult and best option for the monsoon season). He is kind, he is really helpful and offers a competitive price for the service (food, guest house, transport and guide for all the 7 seven days that the trip last: you don't have to worry about anything - only to trek!).
I had the chance to share this trekking with Toobi, an experienced guide of "Aventure Club Treks" (he did all the important trekkings in Nepal). His advice, kindness and help was really mandatory for the success of the trekking. ll recommend " Adventure Club Treks" to all my friends and don't hesitate to contact Birendra. He'll do the best to help you!
