overview

Nepal has to offer many, amazing trekking routes to the lush green hills as well as mountains. Among the different trekking trails here, the route to Langtang is one of the most marvellous adventures when compared to the Annapurna or Everest region. We can savour the views of the amazing snow-clad peaks in this region and get a deeper insight into the local lifestyle as well as culture. The Langtang Gosainkunda Chisapani trek has to offer an excellent experience that will be memorable for the rest of your life.

This is a sixteen days’ trek which allows you to explore the landscape of Nepal; you will be amazed by the majestic peaks, jungles, beautiful villages and friendly people. You will also get to witness the popular Gosainkunda lake which is significant and is widely revered by Hindus. This trekking journey begins from Trishuli river; we move past Dhunche to get to Syabru Besi which is a Sherpa village and then move along lush green rhododendron and oak forest along with several glacial moraines to get to Langtang. Langtang valley is situated between the lower range peaks southwards and high Himalayan range on the north.
