Langtang Gosaikunda Trek – A Pilgrims Tour in Nepal

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek – A Pilgrims Trek in Nepal

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek offers you to walk on the remote Tamang villages near the Tibet border to explore Tibetan culture in Nepal. Hiking in Langtang National Park (The home of Red Panda) gives you an opportunity to enjoy the diversity of flora and fauna, the fusion culture of Tamang and Tibetan community, and a close view of the magnificent glacier. You will be able to touch the pure holy water to purify yourself, or at least what the locals believe in, at the Gosaikunda Lake.

 

Langtang Gosaikunda trek begins in the ancient city of Kathmandu from where you will join for a 7 to 8 hours drive to Syabrubesi. The starting point of your trek is Syabrubesi which follows the Langtang Khola to get to our destination. As we gain elevation, we first pass through the forest of Oak and Rhododendrons and then bamboo forest to reach Langtang Village. The friendly people of Langtang Valley and Kyangin Gompa are waiting for you to welcome you in the holistic and spiritual Kyangin Gompa. You will need to hike for a few hours to get a tremendous glimpse of the snow-capped mountain peaks and landscapes from Langtang Ri and Tserko Ri.

 

There will be a chance to visit Yak cheese farm in Kyangin Gompa and Chandanbari. Moving ahead to Gosaikunda, you can watch the sunset and sunrise over a multitude of glistening Lakes of this sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. Then finally you will walk down to Dhunche before heading back to Kathmandu.

We advise travel insurance to all travelers who are interested in trekking in Nepal. Trekking in Nepal is walking on the trail (path) of mountains. In mountain areas, health treatment facilities are not standard. There is less availability of good hospitals and doctors. So if in case the trekker suffers from severe sickness, he should be brought to Kathmandu by helicopter for better treatment. And the helicopter charter fare is expensive in Nepal. If you have already travel insurance, your money will be saved.

When selecting a travel insurance policy we require that at a minimum you are covered for medical expenses including emergency repatriation. We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. We, JRN Treks, shall have no liability for loss, theft of or damage to baggage or personal effects.

We also let you know that Nepalese Insurance Company does not have a travel insurance policy for foreign nationals. They have this policy only for Nepalese citizens. So we advise you to select your travel insurance with Insurance Company in your own place.
