Overview

Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek in the Langtang Region combines the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountain lakes at Gosainkunda and the beautiful Helambu Valley.

Trail of Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek also known as Langtang Circuit Trek is in the most unspoiled national parks of Nepal, which is perhaps why there is such a high appeal of this trekking route.

Situated at North of Kathmandu near the Tibetan border, it is the most easily accessible highland sanctuary from the capital.

This remote area is enclosed by snow-capped mountains which culminate in the peak of Langtang Lirung (7246m).

Langtang Circuit Trek starts from the lower Langtang Valley which takes you through forests and among the villages and farmlands of many who are of Tibetan origin. The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi river and Langtang Khola river are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple and alder. The stretch of forest around Ghoda Tabela in the lower Langtang Valley and below Gosainkunda is inhabited by the red panda, a rare and threatened symbol of a healthy Himalayan ecosystem.
