The Langtang Gosaikunda trek is popular trek among trekkers. It is often referred to as the best trek due to its abundance of stunning natural views, diverse landscapes, rich biodiversity, lush greenery, cultural significance, and a holy Gosaigunda Trek. Located north of Kathmandu and bordered by China, the Langtang region is the closest Himalayan region to the capital city.

Gosaikunda Trek Route is also known as the “Valley of Glaciers.” This trek offers breathtaking views of the Himalayas including Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Langshisha Ri, Yala Peak, Gangchempu, Ganja-La range, Dorje Lakpa, Gauri Shankar, and many other snow-capped peaks in the area. The natural vegetation, flora, and fauna are protected under the Langtang National Park, adding to the beauty of the valley.

The Langtang region is home to mostly Tamangs and Sherpas and their culture is quite similar to that of Tibetans. We’re in for a treat as we’ll get to see some beautiful monasteries along our trek. Our Langtang Gosaikunda trek itinerary will start from Kathmandu where we’ll take a ride to Syabrubesi, which will be the starting point of our hike.

On our Langtang Gosaikunda Lake Trek, we’ll make our way to Kyanjin Ri to admire the stunning Langtang Himal and its surrounding ranges. After visiting Langtang, we’ll descend to Thulosyarbu and then hike uphill toward Gosaikunda.

Gosaikunda is a lake with both natural and cultural significance. It’s located at an elevation of 4380 meters above sea level. During August each year, a large number of pilgrims and shamans (traditional village spiritual healers) gather here to celebrate the Janai Purnima festival. 

The best time for the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is between late March to early May and September to November. During these months, the weather is pleasant and the skies are clear, providing the best views of the mountains. Additionally, the Rhododendron forests, which are a highlight of the trek, are in full bloom during spring (March to May). 

The monsoon season, which runs from June to August, can cause heavy rainfall and landslides, making the trek challenging and potentially dangerous. Winter (December to February) is also not ideal due to heavy snow and cold temperatures, making the trek more strenuous.

FAQ

What can I expect from the Langtang Gosaikunda trek?

The Langtang Gosaikunda trek is a beautiful and challenging trek that takes you through the Langtang National Park in Nepal.  Awe-inspiring natural features including snow-capped mountains, woods, rivers, and glaciers can be expected. Additionally, you’ll have the chance to visit welcoming locals, discover the local culture, and explore traditional Tamang and Sherpa communities.

You’ll be walking for several hours each day on this trek, so you’ll need to be in good physical condition and have the right equipment. The vistas you’ll see along the way and the sense of satisfaction you’ll feel once you’re done, though, will make the effort worthwhile.

Do I need a trekking permit to go on the Langtang Gosaikunda trek?

You will need two permits in order to complete the Langtang Gosaikunda trek: a TIMS (Trekkers’ Information Management System) Card and a Langtang National Park Permit. These permits guarantee your access to the Langtang National Park and your right to trek there. They also assist in managing information about trekkers for management and safety reasons.

Are there any prerequisites for this trek?

Sure thing! The Langtang Gosaikunda trek is a stunning and difficult experience, but there are a few things you should remember to make the most of your time there.

First and foremost, physical fitness is crucial. Being in good shape will enhance the experience because the expedition entails many days of walking at high altitudes.

Second, having the right equipment is crucial. You’ll need warm, cozy clothes in addition to sturdy trekking shoes.

Thirdly, you must provide time for acclimatization to high altitudes. You will be at high altitudes during the walk, so it’s critical to give your body adequate time to adapt to the shift in altitude to prevent altitude sickness.

Lastly, because the terrain might be difficult at times, previous trekking experience is advised. You may be sure that the Langtang Gosaikunda trek will be excellent if you keep these requirements in mind.

Is it safe to take the route to Langtang given that it was impacted by the 2015 earthquake?

The 2015 Nepal earthquake did have an effect on the Langtang region, however, it has now been carefully repaired and is currently accessible for trekking. Local communities have put a lot of effort into restoring the environment, and the trekking trails have been rebuilt and well-maintained. As with any outdoor activity, it’s crucial to be aware of the risks and take the appropriate safety measures, such as hiring a knowledgeable guide and packing the appropriate gear.

What will I eat while trekking?

You can try a range of regional foods while trekking in Langtang Valley, which will provide you with the energy you need for your daily activities. Daal bhat (lentil soup and rice), momos (steamed dumplings stuffed with vegetables or meat), and tarkari are typical traditional Nepalese foods (curried vegetables). However, at higher altitudes, you can anticipate less.
