Join us for a fantastic trek to the Langtang valley, the “valley of glaciers”. Over these 15 days you will walk up and down fantastic landscapes and beautiful traditional villages north of Kathmandu, Nepal.

To begin this program, we will pick you up at the Kathmandu International Airport. We will then spend a full day touring around the main World Heritage Sites of the Nepalese capital city. As from day 3 of the program, we will drive along the north-western hills of Kathmandu towards Syabru Besi, across Trishuli Bazaar and Dhunche. On day 4, the trekking experience will begin!

Along the trekking program, you will visit wonderful Tibetan villages like the Langtang (3,500 m), Kyangjin Gompa (3,800 m) and Thulo Syabhru (2,260 m).

Along the trek you will also be able to enjoy views of the impressive peaks in this area, like Dorje Larpa, Langtang Ri, Langtang Lirung and Yala Peak, Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himal.

One of the main highlights of this program is the trek along the view of a dozen lakes in the Gosainkunda basin, including Sarawasti Kunda, Bhairabh Kund, and Gosainkund. This last lake is said to host a fabled black rock at its center, believed to be the head of the Hindu god Shiva.

For accommodation, we will spend the nights at lodges and guesthouses at the villages, which is a beautiful experience in its own.

Have a look at the detailed itinerary below.

On this program, you will be guided by a certified mountain guide from the GuideSource team. At GuideSource, we are proud of our over 35-year experience, and zero serious or fatal accidents.
