Overview

Langtang National park is the closest wilderness area from Kathmandu. The region has alpine weather, high mountains, Buddhist culture, Buddhist monasteries at Kyanjin (3,811m) and Singompa and a glacier at Langsisa. This trekking route falls under Langtang National park. The park covers both sub-topical and alpine zones. About 1,000 plant species and 30 mammal species have been identified in this region. The largest national park in Nepal, Langtang covers an area of 1,710 sq. km.

Gosaikunda is one of the holiest of lakes for Hindus that attracts Nepalese as well as Indians. Every year, in August, thousands of pilgrims visit this lake for a dip in water. The high trail through Lauribina (3,900m) and Sing Gompa descends to Gosaikunda Lake. The lake is situated at 4,380m. To enter Helambu, you will cross Lauribina La (4,610m), usually blanketed by a thick cloud and snow. Then the trek goes on to Gopte and climb to Thadepani to get to Helambu.

Helambu is located about 72 km north-east of Kathmandu. It is a beautiful scenic grandeur and has pleasant mountain weather. Here you can have panoramic view of the magnificent mountain range. Several Buddhist monasteries, beautiful landscape, diverse ethnic cultures and good weather in autumn and spring seasons are the features of this trekking. Tamang and Sherpa of Helambu have their distinct languages and tradition.

The bus drive to Dhunche is about 8-9 hours from Kathmandu. The road is quite rough. At Dhunche, you are already in the high Himalayan valley where you can see yak grazing and Bhotia culture with Tibetan hue. As we begin trekking from Dhunche, we gradually climb the trail to Syabrubesi (2,134m). From Syabrubesi the trail leads to Groda Tabela (3,048m). The main trail extends further to Langtang (3,506m). Visit Kyanjin Gompa, and time permits, Langshisa Kharka at an altitude of 4,125m. Retrace the trail back to Syabrubesi and make gradual ascend through fir and rhododendron forests to a Buddhist monastery at Sing Gompa (3,300m). You will make a steep hike up to the ridge and descend to Gosaikunda (4,309m) lake. The trail on the wide ridge provides spectacular views of Himal Chuli, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal ranges. Gosaikunda Lake is believed to be the home to Lord Shiva. On leaving the lake you will cross Lauribina pass at 4,640 m and descend to a cave a Gopte. Instead of taking the trail through dense rhododendron forest ridge to GulBhanjyang and PatiBhanjyang that descent to Sundarijal, you trek further to the main cultural hub of Helambu. You ascend steep trail from Tharepati to Melamchi Goun and continue to the Sherpa village of TarkeGhyang and Shermathang. Descend to Malemchi Khola and drive to Kathmandu by bus.
