Langtang, Gosainkunda and Helambu Trek

Duration: 17 Days

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.
