Trip Overview

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is the most accessible yet relatively pristine trekking region that encompasses a good portion of the Tibetan plateau North of Kathmandu. The Langtang Gosainkunda trekking trails are predominantly inhabited by the Tamang community and offer a genuine display of cultural prosperity. Explore the region home to Langtang National Park and the magnificent Langtang Lirung (7227m) on the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek.

This classic journey of Langtang Gosainkunda Trek begins in Kathmandu. A visit to Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, and Kathmandu Durbar Square is a moment of cultural exploration. With glimpses of the heritage of ancient Nepal, the trip heads north to Langtang where the tumultuous roads of Trishuli valley mark the start of the wilderness journey. Starting from Sybrubensi, the trek heads along to the villages of Lama Hotel, Ghodatabela, and Langtang Village. The trek leads to Kyanjin Gompa where Tibetan-Buddhist Tamang history awaits unraveling. A hint of adventure is added by the hike up Tserko Ri (4984m) offering glimpses of glimpse of Ganesh Himal (7422m), Langtang Lirung (7227m), and Dorje Lakpa (6966m). Descending back on the same route, the trek heads to Thulo Syabru. Descending further, Shin Gompa is the next destination. Next, a holy setting comes in the form of Gosainkunda Lake, one of several lakes in the Langtang region. Devotees of the Hindu religion flock the trail to these lakes to rinse off their sins and gain sanctity.

A circuitous route via Chisapani and Sundarijal marks the completion of this trek with a ride back to Kathmandu completing the loop. The Langtang trek adds to a wholesome trekking experience with a chance to unravel some of the endangered species unique to this region. A meeting with the Himalayan black bear, red panda, and snow leopard is on the plate while this trek portrays the beauty of the Himalayas in the Langtang range and the Gosainkunda range is up for grabs.

With an experience of quenching the thirst of the most avid travelers.  Tour Trekking Company in Nepal is proud to announce the Langtang trek. A custom-designed trail along the Langtang region in Nepal, we invite all trekking enthusiasts to come to explore the Himalayan region in the form of Langtang Gosainkunda Trek.
