Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is a relatively easy trek in Langtang Region with stunning panoramas of two major Himalayan Ranges, Langtang and Ganesh. After Everest and Annapurna Region Treks it is another popular trekking route, which is not over-crowded as Everest and Annapurna region. Once an important trading route with Tibet, this influence is reflected in the character of the villages and people.
In Langtang Valley you can experience a wide variety of people, tibetan culture, plants, vegetation and animals.
During parts of the trek you will be walking through a national park and even though wildlife is never easy to spot in a forest setting, maybe you can get a glimpse of some interesting animals and birds, like monkeys, musk deers, pikas and the national bird of Nepal, the colourful danphe.
Langtang Gosaikunda Trek starts and passes through villages with terraced fields of paddy, corns, millet etc. (depending upon the season). Slowly it starts to go through the rhododendron jungles and then on to meadows and pastures with yaks, and at last to the alpine vegetation near Langtang. Not only the landscape around you changes as the trek goes higher, also a change in culture and religion is detectable. With coming higher the number of monasteries and Mane walls is increasing.
In this relatively easy and short trek Tsergo Ri (a viewpoint at 5033 meters) is the main attraction of the trek. Tsergo Ri offers views of Langtang Lirung (7227 meters), Dorje Lhakpa (6966 meters), Yala Peak (5520 meters), Shishapangma and many other smaller peaks. Equally breathtaking views of Ganesh Himal Range can be enjoyed at the beginning of Langtang Valley Trek.
Because of easy accessibility, this trek can be done any time in the year but March and April are the best months, because at this time the flowers bloom and you can have an amazing view of the Himalaya with the colourful rhododendron in the front.
