The Langtang Gosaikunda trekking begins with a quick drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. After a memorable sightseeing tour around some heritage sites in Kathmandu, we head towards Syabrubensi.
Syabrubensi is the actual commencement point of our Langtang Gosaikunda Trek. From here, we follow a trail that goes through villages and ascends upstream of the Langtang river along with the forests to Bamboo.
Enjoying the pristine environment, the trail climbs up through the forests of bamboo, rhododendron, and oak to Lama Hotel. Then Leaving Lama Hotel, we follow a trail that leads us to Langtang village via Ghoda Tabela. At Ghoda Tabela, we can catch the first glimpse of Langtang Lirung. As we open up to the Langtang village, it will shower us with some magnificent views of Langtang Himal, Langtang Lirung, and other mountains in the Langtang range in the Langtang valley.
Langtang village is a beautiful place to spend your time in. Here, you can visit a famous monastery known as Kyanjin gompa. Further, you can hike up to Kynajin Ri from where you can relish the magnificence of Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, and various other mountains in the Langtang range.

Finally, making our way along the classic trail in Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, we open up to Gosaikunda Lake, a holy lake for Hindu pilgrims. People believe that the Gosaikunda Lake was formed when Lord Shiva pierced the mountain with his trident to quench his thirst caused due to swallowing poison. It is a beautiful lake that lies in a spectacular location in the backdrop of the beautiful Himalayas. After spending some beautiful time in the lake’s periphery and taking a holy dip into the Gosaikunda Lake, we embark on our journey back to Kathmandu.
