Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek

Langtang is a narrow valley situated south of the Tibetan border, an area inhabited by Tibetans and Tamang who share a similar religion, language and clothing style. The landscapes we cross are extremely varied: rice-terraces, gigantic rhododendron and firs forests and, in the highest parts, a rock and shrub wilderness with the fascinating backdrop of snowy peaks. The route passes by the sacred lakes of Gosaikunda (4380m), a pilgrimage spot where, during the full moon festival of August, flow hundreds of pilgrims. After Gosaikund we continue across the Laurebina pass towards the Helambu valley and its numerous and picturesque Sherpa villages. It is advisable to plan an extra day, which can be spent in Melamchi Gaon, a Sherpa village, which is sure to charm you.

An easy and pleasant walk through yak meadows. The village is spectacularly situated in a glacial amphitheatre dominated by high peaks.
