Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking

The Langtang Gosaikunda Trek – 13 Days

For centuries, hindu pilgrims from all over the universe have hiked this region to pay homage to this revered lake called Gosainkunda – geographically situated in one of the most scenic regions of Langtang in Nepal…

This particular area in the Langtang region has many glacial fed lakes dedicated to the hindu god Shiva and other Deities. The lakes are all placed above 4000m. As the myth goes, it is believed that the mythical god Shiva, after drinking the poisons of planet earth, drove his three split fork into the earth to drink pure water to quench his thirst.

The lovely green valley of Langtang is well based in the Himalayan region of Nepal, and borders Tibet (China) north of the ancient valley of Kathmandu. Langtang Lirung at (7,246m/23,773ft), among a host of other peaks, is the tallest mountain peak in the region. Hiking in this area is a great experience with nature which provides scenic mountain views, tranquil landscapes, and snowy alpine forests, great upfront views of the holy lake of Gosainkunda and some interesting interactions with the local ethnic Tamang tribe and their rich culture. The Langtang trails go by less frequented routes to the region of Tamang village settlements very near to the Tibetan border. This is a great opportunity to experience and observe the conventional lifestyles and festivals of this attractive region, and this also includes getting into the environmental heaven in the region – the Langtang National Park (first Himalayan National Park of Nepal).

As we hike the trails, we are likely to bump into many Pilgrims and ascetics heading for the Holy lake of Gosaikunda which is very likely in the course of the trek. This holy lake attracts hordes of hindu pilgrims every year who head to this lake to perform different rituals of taking a dip in the lake. The Langtang area is also well known for producing Yak cheese, visiting one of these government owned cheese factories in the region can also be an added compliment of the trek. We also get to see the mischievous playful Langur (monkeys) and Red Pandas as we wade through the bamboo forests in Lantang national park. The trail clings in proximity to the wonderful mountains, and throughout our journey, we are blessed with amazing panoramas of the Ganesh and Annapurna Himalaya ranges. Its ideal to do this trek in early spring or early autumn, the landscapes and the lovely floors are literally breathtaking. Family Adventure Treks and Expeditions will escort you through this region in ways that are special…
