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!

Thanks to my guide Tanka and porter Chhabi for an awesome trip to the Himalayas! All throughout the trip they ensured that I had everything that I needed and checked in on my comfort level all throughout. The guide took time every day to explain plans for the next day, to take pictures and to point out landmarks. The views of Annapurna I and Machhapuchhare are gorgeous from the Mardi Himal base camp (more so than Mardi Himal itself). Note that you enjoy flexibility during the trip. The camps that you stay at each night are only suggestions - we adjusted from the described plan to time the weather so we could get the best views, and to get off the trail early on Day 5. Much of the trail is improved with steps or stone walkways and it is a popular trail where you will meet other hiking groups. I brought everything suggested by Welcome Nepal Treks for the trip and was well equipped. Communication with Welcome Nepal Treks was entirely through Whatsapp, and I was able to rendezvous with the guide on Day 1 with no problem. I would book a trip with Welcome Nepal Treks again!

We had an amazing Mardi Himal trek. We booked last minute and we were dealt with promptly and professionally. The trek was fully customisable including a stay in a lovely hotel and bus rides to and from Kathmandu. Our guide Amir was awesome and made our trek everything we wanted. Thank you so much!

We hebben echt genoten van onze trekking naar ABC. Jammer genoeg waren er echter overal problemen met de kamer. We hebben dan expres via een agency geboekt en meer betaald, zodat we zeker een kamer overal zouden krijgen. Dit bleek dan een probleem te zijn, omdat er niets op voorhand was geboekt. Ook hebben we last minute (letterlijk 5 min voor de 1e ontmoeting) een bericht van Hari gekregen dat we een andere guide zouden krijgen. Hierbij kregen we geen uitleg. De nieuwe guide had geen EHBO kit mee en wist ook helemaal niet wat allemaal inbegrepen was in onze boeking. Dit was opzich geen probleem, maar het leek plots allemaal niet meer zo goed georganiseerd als het beloofde te zijn. Ondanks dit hebben we echt wel genoten van onze tocht en zijn we blij dat we het gedaan hebben.
