Happy Holidays Treks and Expedition
The Langtang region lies to the north of Kathmandu. A bus journey takes one to the starting point at Syabrubesi. This trek offers a different perspective to life in the Himalayas. With less habitation and a much less crowded route than the previous two, there is more time for peace, silence and time for reflection. The usual route also passes through the highly revered sacred Gosaikund Lake where Hindus arrive for a pilgrimage. The devotees are seen bathing in the frigid waters in the lap of the Himalayan peaks. One of the spots to visit is the Kyanjin Gompa (monastery at 3,800m) where you will also encounter a cheese factory and a lodge. The usual Langtang trek takes about two weeks and can be extended to include the Helambu region, which involves the crossing of a pass named Ganjala at 5,106m. The views along this trek are awesome.
On this trek you will walk through three different regions that have their own diverse attractiveness- the snow-capped peaks of the high Langtang valley, the sharp beauty of Gosainkund Lake and its settlements and the rich cultural heritage of the Helambu region.
