Trip Overview of Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Trek

Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Trek is a religious trek towards the venerated Gosaikunda Lake that is believed to have been crafted by Lord Shiva himself to get relief from the agony after he swallowed the lethal Kalkut poison to save the world from being annihilated also known as Langtang circuit trek. Hindu and Buddhist devotees along with shamanic practitioners visit the Holy Gosainkunda Lake every year in Janai Purnima which falls every year on the full moon of Bhadra which usually coincides with the august month of the English Calendar. Taking bath in the chilling water of Gosainkunda Lake is believed to wipe off all the mortal sins of devotees that they commit in their lifetime.

Traveling through several villages with an opportunity to have a peek into the rural way of living and traditional culture and traditions, walking along the Mani walls, visiting Kyangjin Gompa monastery, having wonderful views of Dorje Lakpa, Langtang Lirung, Gangchenpo, and other Tibetan Mountains, passing through a forest of blooming rhododendrons and other alpine flowers and having the fantastic view of Saraswati Kunda, Bhairab Kunda, and Gosaikunda Lake are major attractions of Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda Trek. 

‘Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda Trek’ at Tourist Link Treks & Expedition is a 17-days package that begins with the 9hour drive through the serpentine road of Nuwakot to Syabrubesi from where the amazing trekking experience initiates as we walk past Lama Hotel to pretty and culturally rich Langtang Village. Offering our respect to Kyangjin Gompa Monastery, we will make an advance through Sing Gompa Monastery to Gosainkunda Lake. Taking bath in Gosaikunda Lake, we will make our return trip through the highland Villages of Gopte, Melamchi Gaon, Tarkegyang, and Sermathang to Melamchipul from where we will drive back to Kathmandu and thus this fun-filled ‘Langtang Gosaikunda Trek’ concludes.



Upon landing at the Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu, you will be greeted by our representative from Tourist Link Treks & Expedition who will then convey you through the vibrant streets in Kathmandu to the hotel where you will receive a brief explanation regarding your trekking package. You will spend the pleasant night in the comfy bed.

Taking light breakfast early in the morning, our guide will then take you for a pleasant day tour inside Kathmandu which encompasses the UNESCO enlisted sites like the holiest shrine of Shiva at Pashupatinath Temple Complex, the Bouddhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath Temple aka Monkey Temple. The tour will conclude by taking you to the Kathmandu Durbar Square which is a historical site. Home of Living Goddess- Kumari, Kasthamandap Temple and Kal Bhairab are some must see sites around Kathmandu Durbar Square.

It takes about 5hour of scenic drive through the slithering road with beautiful views of rice fields, terraces and hills to take us to Trishuli Bazaar from where we will follow the bumping dirt road to Dhunche. From Dhunche, we will continue along the road to Syabrubesi Bazaar which is crowded with several hotels and lodges. We will spend the night in a lodge at Syabrubesi.

Pursuing the downward trail that leads us to Ghopche Khola, we will move forward through a place with landslide before choosing the ascending trail to Rimche located at 2400m altitude. Crossing the dense woods of bamboo, we will make it to Lama Hotel where we will be staying overnight.
