Langtang Gosaikunda Helumbu Trekking

Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trekking

The trek begins in Syabrubesi and then the trail passes through the Tamang country and across different landscapes, including a tight river valley, an open glacial valley, towering peaks and several lakes. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of peaks to the south – you can encounter really wonderful valley views during the trek from Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa. From Kyanjin Gompa the scene gets even better as you walk mostly uphill before you come across the Gosainkunda lakes.

Gosainkunda is not just a trekking destination – it is a pilgrimage. The area is believed to be the abode of the Hindu god ‘Shiva’. According to Hindu mythology, the holy lakes of Gosainkund was created by Lord Shiva’s Trishul (three pointed weapon) so that he could drink it’s cold water and quench the heat that he felt in his throat after he drank poison from Samudra manthan. From Gosainkunda you’ll follow a trail that passes through forests, suspension bridges and several peaceful villages as you walk right across Helambu. Among these villages, Tarke Gyang and Sermathang have some very interesting Gompas (monasteries). You can also see the sun rise over the Himalayas from Sermathang and the sun set, when seen from there, is quite extraordinary too.
