Activities Treking & Hiking

Langtang Gosaikunda and Helambu Trekking is the combination of three different locations for simultaneous coverage. Simply saying, the Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu hiking route is designed for all hikers and, in general, to enjoy the hidden natural beauty of the Himalayan treasure. The inner valley of the Langtang region is a combination of the high Himalayan valley and the low temperate valley where several species of endangered fauna: the red panda, the deer, the common leopard, the snow leopard, the wild goats are found and different types of birds in danger of extinction of the species of flora are well preserved. During the spring, rhododendrons, orchids and colourful magnolias bloom abundantly with breath-taking views of the snow-capped peaks. Hence, the classic way of exploring the entire Langtang region will make you think once what we have planned for those seeking a nomadic experience for life.

After exploring the days in this nomadic region, the hiking trail will be diverted to the sacred lake site of Gosainkunda. The sacred lake of Gosainkunda is the most popular pilgrimage destination among groups of Hindu and Buddhist peoples. Especially during the full moon of August, it is visited by many people. There is also the same festive moment where many shamans gather to show their rituals of shamanism in order to claim rights in a traditional way. After visiting this sacred lake, you will cross the Laurebina Pass (4,610 m) and the trail will descend to the Helambu Valley. The Helambu Valley, in itself, is very rich for the cultural heritage of the whole region where hikers can enjoy the local hospitality of Sherpa and Tamang in a pleasant climate. This Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu is mainly popular for trekking the tea house, where you can also organize the camp. The Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek can be the best trekking destination for all those who love natural landscapes and different cultural practices as well as biodiversity.
