Langtang Valley And Gosaikunda is one of the nearest trekking destinations from Kathmandu, and is an unparalleled combination of natural beauty and culture riches. Langtang lies about 130 Km, north of the Kathmandu valley close to the border with Tibet and China. Langtang valley in particular, delivers more amazing views; all these routes take you into Langtang National Park. It is Nepal’s first national park, and lies between the Himalayan range to the north, dominated by Langtang Lirung (7,245 m), the highest peak in the area, and smaller peaks to the south – Chimse Danda (ridge), Ganja La pass (5,122 m), Jugal Himal and Dorje Lakpa (6,989 m). Langtang (3300 m), the bigger of the two, makes a good place to spend an extra night and acclimatize, while Kyanjin Gompa (3750 m) boasts a small monastery, a cheese factory. We continue trekking in Langtang Valley until reach to Gosaikunda.
Gosainkunda Lake is a revered place of pilgrimage for both Buddhists and Hindus. Moreover, the place is named after the glistening Gosaikunda Lake whose water is believed to have magical healing powers. We pass by a few more lakes on our trek and cross the Laurebina Pass. Gosainkund, Laurabina La pass (4610 m), (be sure to follow the low route, not the dangerous upper one) at Phedi (3630 m), Gopte (3530 m), and snowy ridge at the settlement of Therapati (3510 m). The trail forks here and we can follow either side of the Helambu. The alternative is to continue south down the ridge, passing through lovely rhododendron then oak forest via Mangengoth (3390 m) to Kutumsang (2470 m), and a Sherpa village where the Langtang National Park headquarters is based. It’s another five switch backing hours or so on to Chisapani (2251 m), a celebrated viewpoint settlement just beyond the northern edge of Shivapuri National Park, and another four or five hours up and over from there through the gorgeously wooded national park to Sundarijal (1460 m), After few more days will end our remarkable journey to the mountains with a drive to Kathmandu from Sundarijal.

As you continue climbing there are occasional glimpses of LangtangLirung between the trees. At GhodeTabela [3000m], the trail emerges from the forest. Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery, which you can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park. The houses of Langtang and its neighboring villages are of the flat-roofed Tibetan style, surrounded by stone walls enclosing fields of buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips and barley
The trail climbs gradually through small villages and yak pastures as the valley opens out further and the views become more extensive. After crossing several small streams and moraines, the trail reaches the settlement at Kyangjin. Here, there is a small monastery and a government-operated cheese factory. You should arrive at Kyangjin by lunch time allowing time to acclimatize and explore the area. It is a dramatic setting, with snow-covered peaks surrounding you in all directions such as LangtangLirung, Ganjalapeak,Tserko- Ri, Langsisari and many others.

You continue retracing your steps some of the way to Thulo Syabru, but then branch left ascending a steep path through forests to suddenly emerge with a view of Syabru and its extensive area of millet terraces. An undulating path brings you to this fascinating village where each house is set above its neighbor, in a long line up the very crest of the ridge. It’s a great place to wander about, catching glimpses of Tamang life, admiring the beautifully carved wooden windows or simply relaxing in the sun.
From Thulo Syabru, it is a steep climb through forests of oak, fir and rhododendron to the top of a ridge. From here it is only a short descent to Sing Gompa. There is a Buddhist monastery and a small cheese factory too. Somewhere in Phulung Ghyang we can have a lunch.
