Langtang/Gosainkunda Trek is the extension of popular Langtang Valley Trek combining the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountain lakes at Gosainkunda. The typical trekking trail of the trek, which goes up and down frequently on the rolling forested hills also manifests floral and faunal diversity of Langtang National Park. The latter half of the trek treads up to the elevated sacred lake of Gosainkunda, which is so serene and beautiful. This amazing adventure caters spectacular views of the Himalayas and authentic culture of Tamang tribe, who migrated to the region from Tibet almost 400 years ago.
