Trip Overview

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is aptly called "the valley of glaciers". Here the mountain - view is spectacular. On either side of valley, mountains rise, soaring in to the sky. Langtang Gosaikunda trek offers pain forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow- capped peaks.

In the upper part of valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lake with icebergs floating on them and water of crystalline brightness. There are also high mountains of solid ice. Gosainkunda, regarded as sacred land in Hinduism, is dotted with lakes atop the mountain, offering a quiet respite. There are few visitors outside of those who come for the summer festival. Langtang Gosaikunda trek is on the area of Tibetan culture and home of Yak and Gosainkund is a great sacred lake on an elevation of 4200m.

It is great combination of mountain and culture different. Langtang Gosaikunda trek starts from Syabru Bensi and ends at sundarijal.
