Gosaikunda Trek sits as a pilgrimage trekking package at the Langtang Region in Nepal. This trek not only marks our visit to the Gosaikunda but also to the Langtang Valley making it a two in one package.
The trek starts off with a drive to Syabrubesi via Dhunche the same as the Langtang Valley Trek. Parade through Pahiro, and the Rimche villages to arrive at the Lama Hotel. Hike farther up to Ghoda Tabela before finally making it to the Langtang Village. The village is fully restored following its destruction in the Earthquake 2015, no need to worry now. Walk further up from the center of the Langtang National Park and mark our arrival at the Kyanjin Gompa. This village has the largest Mani wall in the country. Explore the Gompa during the day but beforehand, summit the 5000 meters tall peak of Tserko RI early in the morning. Oh, we almost forgot about the Yah Cheese Factory near the Gompa. If time persists, we’ll also visit the Langtang Lirung Glacier and a lake nearby.
Now it’s time to move on to our major destination, Gosaikunda. For that, drop back to the Lama Hotel and further down to Bamboo before making an intersection towards Thulo Syabru. Head towards the Chandan Bari or as some call, Sing Gompa. Yonder towards Gosaikunda via the Lauribinayak and its hilltop. There are 108 lakes in the region with Gosaikunda overshadowing the other. This lake stays frozen for six long months and on the next, it slips up and mixes with the Trishuli River. Take in the views of the high peaks of Ganesh, Langtang Lirung, Langtang RI, Tserko RI, Manaslu, and many others.
While this trip can well be finished within 5 days, we have tailor-made this trip to include as much as beauty as possible.
Are you up to witness the grandiose beauty of the Gosaikunda fused with the Langtang Region?
