Langtang-Gosaikunda-Helambu Trek

Langtang-Gosaikunda Trek is a beautiful fusion of nature, Tamang culture and snowcapped high mountains. It is one of the closest destinations from  Kathmandu to the border ofTibet. The beautiful forests of rhododendron and bamboo, the villages of Shaprubesi, Langtang and Kyanjin Gompa,the secret lake at Gosaikunda, spectacular mountain scenery and the  hospitality of the Tamang people make this trek one of the most attractive and unique journeys in Nepal.  The monastery, prayer flags and prayer wheels give us an opportunity to witness the spirituality of the Buddist people.
Our trek begins with a bus drive from Kathmandu to Shaprubesi. This ride will give us an opportunity to see the beautiful scenery andobserve the local people going about their daily lives. At first we will trek through the Langtang valley then we follow the path to Gosaikund Lake.  As we climb, the types of trees and forest change from subtropical to Alpine. The smiling faces of the people, their friendliness, the scenic beauty of surrounding mountains  and landscape,  the 360 degree view from Kyangin Ri, and the  Holy lake of Gosaikunda makes this trek one of the most interesting and stunning holidays you will have

Accommodation During Trekking
During the trek, we will be staying at local teahouses. These offer accommodation and food served in a dining room which also functions as a social meeting place with other trekkers. All accommodation is on a twin shared basis. A single room is usually available at a little extra cost. The tour guide will arrange the best available accommodation in each village. As we advance to higher and more remote villages it may occasionally be necessary to share a room with more than 2 people. During the treks, most of the bathroom and toilet facilities are shared and toilet can be either a squat or a western toilet.

Meals During Trekking
In Kathmandu we can enjoy authentic Nepalese food such as Thali and Momo at a traditional Nepalese restaurant. For instance the Newari restaurant is a special place serving Newari food (the Newari are the indigenous people of the Kathmandu valley). Newari food is famous and unique. During the trek we will eat traditional Nepalese food as well as more international cuisine (Tibetan, Indian, Italian and continental). Dinner and breakfast will be taken at the teahouse where we spend the night and lunch at one of the trail teahouses.
