Langtang Gosainkunda Pass Trek is an amazing and short trek. It is in the relatively quiet area of the Langtang region.
Langtang Gosainkunda Pass Trek shortly takes a day’s journey to reach the Langtang region. The trek starts from Syabrubesi. The Syabrubesi is an interesting village near the Bhotekoshi river. This area is less crowded and remote as compared to Annapurna and Everest region. Langtang-Gosainkunda is located close to the Tibetan border. This area is enclosed by a mountain. It culminates at the peak of Langtang Himal. The lake melts and flows down to form the Trishuli River. It remains frozen for six months in snow-capped winter, October to March. There are 108 lakes in this area. They are small to medium in size.
Langtang Gosainkunda Pass Trek rewards you with the stunning, beautiful holy lakes of Gosaikunda. It is considered a holy lake by both Hindus and Buddhists. Many Hindu peoples and pilgrimage peregrinate to have a holy bath in the lakes during the August full moon. It is celebrated as a festival of Janai Purnima. The journey starts exploring Tamang heritage which is situated between the Langtang and Ganesh Himal. The trek gives an opportunity to examine the culture of Tamang peoples. Trekkers can directly interact with local people and their traditions, lifestyle, and language.
The attractive part of Langtang Gosaikunda pass trek is an extensive view of snow-capped mountains, glacier and wildlife animals. The seasonal blooming floras, rhododendrons, alpine forest, and bamboo forest are seen on the way. This makes the trekking trail more beautiful and impressive. You may see the red panda and other different colorful birds along the way.
This classic trekking route in the Langtang region is the habitat of many wildlife. The wildlife mainly inhabited in this area are a Himalayan black bear, the mountain goat-like Himalayan Tahr, rhesus monkey, and red pandas. Gosaikunda is really a remarkable place not only for foreigners but also for local people. Some physical fitness and adjustment are highly required for the trekking.
We will go down through the steeply terraced countryside to the Shivapuri National Park. It is just north of Kathmandu. The area is mainly settled by Tamang, Newar and Chhetri people and is a wonderful example of Nepal’s harmonious ethnic diversity.
Spring and Autumn are the favorable seasons for trekking and mountaineering in Nepal. The weather is mostly clear which offers beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring collects beautiful flowers, plants, and rare animals. Walking is also very much suitable due to its moderate temperature. Langtang is always comfortable to trek even in the winter season.
We suggest you be flexible with the situation to enjoy yourself. It is a unique, silent, less crowded area and highly recommended trek. Sherpa Expedition and Trekking are glad to operate this trek for you to make it your lifetime experience.

You will be accommodated in a 3-star hotel in Kathmandu. During the trek, teahouses are readily available; all accommodation is on a twin sharing basis. You may find good quality teahouses at the lower altitude but at the higher elevation, you may get to stay in teahouses where accommodations are settled just with a bed, mattresses and a pillow.
Breakfast will be served in Kathmandu whereas full board services (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) is provided during the trek. Variety of meals are available especially noodles, soups, and rice dishes; on some routes, there will be a limited choice and on some routes teahouses only provide local Nepali dish, Dhal Bhat (lentil and rice).
It is an easy and moderate trek that takes you away from your hometown to have some good quality time. It is the perfect destination for trekkers who love to walk steadily 4-5 hours a day. We have met people from different walks of life, even first-time travelers can easily pass the trek, and all you need to do is a regular exercise to accomplish this trek. Past experience of any hiking or trekking activities is always a plus.
Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to December) are usually known as the best season to do a trek. You are much more likely to see clear views throughout the year however we do not suggest you travel in monsoon season.
