Langtang Gosainkund Helambu

langtang2
Langtang is a narrow valley that lies north of Kathmandu, just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snow peaks to the south. This high and isolated region is inhabited by Tamangs whose religious practices, language and dress are much more similar to those of Tibet. Within a few hour driving we enter into a high mountain region. The other massifs in Nepal require much time and depend on flight. A visit to the Langtang Valley is a superb introduction to trekking in Nepal, among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole country.

The trek starts from Syabru Besi, after driving 150 km from Kathmandu. The trail gradually ascends upstream along the Bhote Kosi River, passing through the forests of the Langtang valley to the alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri [4350m.], from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular, the trail goes to Thulo Syabru. From here, we further trek to the sacred Gosainkunda Lake situated at an elevation of 4336 meters and to Kathmandu via the lovely Helambu region.
