Langtang & Gosainkund

The stunning Langtang Valley lies to the north of Kathmandu and sees fewer trekkers than the Annapurna or Everest regions. In Autumn expect to see superb views of the great peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m), while in spring this is an ideal route for those interested in birds and flowers. Both seasons allow you to reach the glaciers below Langtang Lirung and climb Kyanjin Ri or Tsergo Ri for some magnificent panoramas. Our return takes us past the spectacular holy lake at Gosainkund, an important place of pilgrimage, and across the Laurebena Pass to the end of the trek in the gentler region of Helambu.
