LANGTANG-GOSAINKUND LAKE
HINDU BUDDHIST CULTURES IN THE HILLS OF NEPAL



A trek to the verdant midlands of Nepal and the glaciers at the head of the Langtang Valley is an experience of the fragile beauty of this mountain region, now protected as part of Langtang National Park, and an insight into the lifestyle and culture of the people and the influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism.

Our trek takes us through pleasant rhododendron and larch forests to Langtang, a high Himalayan valley. In the upper reaches of the valley, we find impressive views of the icy brow of Langtang Lirung (23,769') dominating the horizon. We continue higher past the Kyangjin monastery at 12,300 feet, and camp near summer pasturing settlements for a day's excursion to see Langtang's glacier and icefall and the spectacular peaks surrounding it.

Descending through rhododendron and juniper forests once again, past water driven prayer wheels and waterfalls, and climb to alpine terrain on a pilgrim's trail to the Gosainkund lakes. Largely uninhabited most of the year, Gosainkund draws as many as 50,000 Hindu pilgrims during the full moon in August. We then take a different route to Helambu and descend along ridge trails to Kathmandu.
