Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is done in the Langtang region that lies in the middle of Nepal toward the north of northwestern Nepal in the Himalayan range. This region is part of the Langtang national park in This region is also the very first national park in Nepal founded in 1976. The region is extremely prosperous with stunning alpine forest as well as a wide variety of floras, fauna, all blessed by snow-capped Himalayan mountains that cover the national park that is protected.

It is believed that the Langtang area is well-known among Nepal inhabitants because of the proximity to the holy lake Gosaikunda. It is a holy place of pilgrimage for both Hindus as well as Buddhists. This Langtang Gosaikunda trek offers natural and cultural experiences for those who want to experience the real Himalayan lifestyle. Langtang trekking Gosainkunda can be a great option for your trip to Nepal since it will leave you speechless, and then transforms you into an author.

The Langtang gosainkunda trekking trail takes visitors through the cool landscape of the mountains that is dotted with dense forests, stunning waterfalls, and a variety of animals and birds. It also takes you through gorgeous typical Nepali villages. The view from those of the Himalayas from the trek trail are breathtaking, particularly the magnificent Langtang Lirung Himal. Other Himalayan mountains that we can see from this location are the majestic Manaslu, Annapurna, and Ganesh Himal.

There are also stupas, chortens, and Buddhist monasteries, with prayer wheels and spiritual chants that are echoed at a distance. The trail winds through a huge mound of stone that has prayers written on them which is the biggest Mani Wall in Nepal. The path may be a little strenuous, in its ascends and descents during the hike however the vibrant Rhododendron blooms and the stunning snow-capped mountains make you want to get to the most stunning places of Langtang. The trek requires trekkers to be in moderate physical fitness and be able to walk for up to 6 or 7 hours per day, with the aid of a backpack light.

Langtang gosaikunda Trek begins in Syabrubesi the beautiful Tamang village located on the banks of the Bhote Koshi River. It then goes through the stunning history of the Langtang valley, which is known as the 'valley with glaciers'. Langtang valley is noted for its stunning views. Langtang valley has the best view one can be to the majestic glaciers covered in snow. The valley is a rugged mountain terrain that is characterized by alpine forests and steady streams of the mountains with ample grassy meadows. From the rich heritage valley of Langtang valley can reach the sacred Lake of Gosaikunda.

The Gosaikunda water is believed to be sacred since it is believed to possess spiritual properties that heal one's body. In August, on the most auspicious day of Janai Purnima thousands of Hindu pilgrims are able to take a dip in the sacred water. There are numerous other gorgeous water bodies that have accumulated within the area. Also, we visit the ancient Buddhist shrines , such as Langtang Gompa, Langtang Gompa and Kyanjin Gompa. By crossing the mountain, such as the Chorko Ri it is possible to enjoy a more expansive view of Langtang, Langrisa, Langtang-Ri and Ganjala summit.
