Langtang Gosaikunda Pass Trek is a long and adventurous journey embraced with pristine holy and spiritual lakes, demanding uphill and downhill climbs, exposure of lifestyle and culture of nomadic and indigenous people, jaw-dropping panoramas of the Himalayas in the backdrop, cascading waterfalls, lush bushes and a lot more. Over the years, the trail is mostly bursting with pilgrims visiting the divine Gosaikunda Lake, either they are fellows of Hinduism or Buddhism. With the discovery of high altitude passes and ridges like Kyanjin Ri (4,600m), Tsergo Ri (4,985m), Langsisha Kharka (4,100m), Lauribina Pass (4,610m) and so on, the trail has become a topnotch choice for adventurers as well.
Langtang Gosaikunda Pass trek commences with a picturesque drive up to the traditional and culturally enriched Syabrubesi village. Syabrubesi is the gateway to any treks to the Langtang Region of Nepal where resides various folkloric groups like Tamang, Sherpa and Gurung; mostly inspired by the Tibetan lifestyle and culture. Walking ahead thru bushes and alongside the river, enjoying the picturesque sceneries of the cascading hills, snow-clad peaks, and the blooming of Rhododendron forest as well as several other species of vegetations, we will crawl our way to Kyanjing Gompa which is the last settlement along the trail before heading towards Gosaikunda.
To add a bit more of adventure and excitement, the trekkers could choose to hike up to one of the ridges among Kyanjin Ri, Tsergo Ri or Langshisha Kharka on the acclimatization day. All of them are unbelievably astounding viewpoints to sight the delightful sceneries of natural blissfulness. We will feel blessed with never seen before panoramic views of mountaintops like Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal etc; a truly heavenly experience. Then we follow the same route through Lama Hotel to Thulo Syabru and head east towards pilgrimage site of Gosaikunda.
There are several other trivial lakes viz. Saraswatikunda, Bhairav Kunda and others nearby Gosaikunda. There is a myth that Lord Shiva himself built Gosaikunda with his trident to get relief from the poison that he put into his throat to save the world from its severe consequences. Then we pass through Lauribina pass, Ghopte, Melamchi Gaon, Tarkeghyang, Seramanthang and Melamchi pul bazaar for next couple of days before driving back towards Kathmandu.
In the interim, we will be blessed to take a closer look at the dwindling herbs, vegetations, and wildlife and birds in the Langtang National Park.

And to enhance the preservation of endangered species, it is a protected area which is allowed to visit only with a special permit from the Government of Nepal.
Besides, the remote and rural lowland settlements and the authentic lifestyle of the locals are the major attractions of Langtang Gosaikunda Pass Trek.

It was already my another trek organized by Nepal Mountain Trekkers. Since arriving in Kathmandu we felt well taken care of, we had a shuttle service to the hotel. We stayed at Horizon Hotel, quiet and beautiful place for Thamel. When we sightseeing Kathmandu, everything was prepared to trek (permits, transport etc). This time our guide was Shiva who is profesional guide with a wealth of local knowledge. We could "only" enjoy our trip as we were sure that everything was well organized. I would definitely recommend Nepal Mountain Trekkers with frendly pofessional owner Ramesh Dhakal and wonderful guide Shiva and Daljit. Thank you so much Ramesh, Shiva, Daljit, Devaraj, Dhane, Sudip, Arjun. Hope to see you again ... soon :)
In november 2015 we met Mr. Ramesh Dhakal and our guide Daljit at the Horizon Hotel in Thamel Kathmandu. They are very friendly persons, like friends and we went on tour with Daljit and my husband, so we were three of us. We were 3 weeks on tour and had a great time with our guide. The lodges and whole trip was very good organized and with Daljit we had the advantage to learn a lot about Nepal and the Nepali's. We went in the houses, enjoyed family life and he showed us the most beautiful spots.We can recommend this organisation 110%. Enjoy!
