Description

Sitting just north of Kathmandu, Langtang National Park is home to stunning scenery and incredible landscapes. The best way to experience all of the park’s majesty is to head out on the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek!

Over the course of 15 days, we will hike through the remote reaches of the Langtang Valley, heading from one village to the next. As we go, we will trek though thick forests, past the stunning Gosainkunda lakes and along various scenic mountain ridges.

After arriving in Kathmandu, the adventure begins almost immediately as we make the stunning drive to Syabru Bensi and begin our trek. From here, we will have the chance to see some of the country’s most stunning wildlife, including red pandas, monkeys, bears and yaks.

As we go, we will visit various traditional villages along the way, meeting the local Sherpa people and visiting various monasteries as well as a few cheese factories.

No matter where we are and what we are doing, we will enjoy  plenty of incredible views of the Himalaya’s most stunning mountain peaks, including Dorje Larpa (6990m), Langtang Ri (6370m), Langtang Lirung (7245m) and many more.

After completing our scenic loop through the park, we will arrive at Dhunche and conclude our trip by transferring to Nagarkot, near Kathmandu.

We will enjoy a stunning sunset and sunrise here before returning to Kathmandu, where we will have one last farewell dinner and say goodbye.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this unforgettably fun and scenic 15-day Langtang Gosainkunda Trek through the Langtang National Park in north-central Nepal!
