Highlights:

The entire Langtang Region including Langtang National Park is a very attractive trekking destination that is surrounded by spectacular views of the Himalayas, beautiful forest covered valleys and various ethnic villages. The trail gains elevation as you make your way along the Langtang Khola, first through forests of oak, rhododendron and then bamboo forests on the higher reaches of the trail. Enlivening glimpses of Mount Langtang Lirung (7200m) appear through the trees along the way. Traveling through Langtang (3450m), you will reach the Langtang valley and village of Kyanjing Gompa (3800m), where you will see the spiritual lifestyle of Buddhist monks who perform their rituals in a beautiful monastery dating back to 1300 A.D. A short hike will lead you to a magnificent glacial moraine (4300m) which can be climbed and offers a more spectacular view of Langtang Lirung and the foot of one of its major glaciers. Another viewpoint on this trek is Chandan Bari (2800m) from where you can enjoy magnificent views of the towering snowcapped Ganesh Himal (7600m) and Langtang II (7227m) peaks. Langtang National Park is Red Panda habitat area. Thus, you might be able to observe the Red Pandas in the bamboo-Oak groves and occasionally in the open space.

We continue our trek to Gosainkunda (lake), a complex group of 15 lakes and ponds situated within Langtang National Park, treeless region with shrub land interspersed by rocky slopes and alpine pasture at 4054m to 4620m altitude that provide water for the Trishuli tributary of the Narayani River system.

Gosainkunda is considered a sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Buddhists. This area has received international recognition by being designated as a Ramsar site by the United Nations Environment Program due to its ecological importance of these wetlands that support diverse floras and faunas. After Gosainkunda, we will trek to Dunche and travel by vehicle back to Kathmandu.
