The Langtang Gosaikunda trek is the perfect amalgamation of one of the easier and more beautiful treks in Nepal, with a final leg that takes trekkers on the scenic Gosaikunda trail.
The Langtang region was long one of Nepal’s most popular destinations on the trekking map until the area was dealt a terrible blow by the 2015 earthquake, and it has taken until very recently to recover, though the numbers of visitors remain down on past years. So not only do its former scenic charms still exist, but choosing to trek through the valley helps to economically restore the lives of the friendly Tamang people who populate the region.

The route winds through dense rhododendron forest on either side of the river until it breaks from of the tree line and heads into the alpine regions, across glacial moraine, and on to the rebuilt village of Langtang. Further and higher into the valley’s inner sanctum are the yak pasturelands and dramatic setting for Kyanjin Gompa, a remote monastery famous for the production of yak cheese. Optional climbs to either Kyanjin Ri or Cherko Ri render panoramic views of the nearby mountains, including Langtang Lirung, which dominates the valley at a height of 7234 meters.
