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.
