Langtang Helambu Trek

  • Langtang Helambu Trek

Overview

This typical Langtang Helambu trek combines three major areas north of Kathmandu along the border of Tibet Langtang, Gosainkund and Helambu. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is placed between the main Himalayan range to the north and a little lower range of snow-white peaks to the south. This trek proposes a chance to travel around the villages, to go up small peaks and to visit glaciers at a comfortably low altitude. You trek to Gosainkunda Lake (4300m) where thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lakes for the period of the full moon festival in August. The lake is also sacred to Buddhists. Gosaikunda is actually the largest of three major lakes the other two being Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda. Hindu legend tells that the lakes were created when the God Siva plunged his trident (Trisul) into the ground in order to obtain water. The Trisuli River has its source in the lakes; thus the name was originated.

Helambu valley is very well-known for its natural beauty and magnificent climate with terrific views of glorious snow-covered mountains. The area covers traditional highland Sherpa villages along with gorgeous Rhododendron forests. This region extends from the north of Taramarang to the Gosaikunda Lake and the lower slopes of Jugal Himal.
