Visit Tibetan village at Langtang – Amazing views of Langtang Ri, Ganesh Himal,– Panoramic views from Gosaikunda, Lauribina Pass- Walk through the Helembu valley
Gosaikunda Trek is classical trekking combining three major areas north of Kathmandu along the border of Tibet Langtang, Gosainkund and Helambu. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. This trek offers an opportunity to explore villages, to climb peaks and to visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. You can trekto Langtang by returning to Kathmandu via the holy lakes of Gosainkund at 4300 meters. Thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lakes during the full moon festival in August. The lake is also sacred to Buddhists. Gosaikunda is the largest of three main lakes, the other two being Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda.
Hindu legend has it that the lakes were formed when the God Siva plunged his trident (Trisul) into the ground in order to obtain water. The Trisuli River has its source in the lakes, thus the name.Tri (Three) and Suli (needle) or Trisuli used by god Shiva. Even now you can see three water taps on side of Gosaikunda Lake. The view from Gosaikunda valley is amazing. If you have enough time, you can continue to Helambu village from your Gosaikunda trek. Gosaikunda trekkers return to Dhunche to catch a bus back to Kathmandu. The best time for Gosaikunda trekking is the beginning of March to the end of May and the beginning of September to the end of December. You can choose the details of your itinerary as per your desire and holidays.
