Langtang Gosainkunda Trek
North of Kathmandu valley lies Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Nestled at the foot of these Himalayan ranges is a beautiful, secluded, valley filled with natures bounty - the Langtang National Park. Here the rare red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, hears of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and glaciated valleys amidst a scenery of lofty Himalayan peaks
This magnificent trek combines the beauty of mountain sceneries and the pleasure of meeting the Tamang and Sherpas people, whose kindness and hospitality is well renowned. This itinerary, through pine, oak and rhododendron forests, is less frequented than others, and will appeal to mountain lovers who want to get off the beaten track. The 8-day trek passes by the sacred lakes at Gosaikund and the Laurebina pass (4610m). Trek down to Dhunche (gateway of Langtang Trek) and drive back to Kathmandu.
