Langtang Helambu Trekking Tour (15 Nights | 16 Days)
Kathmandu - Helambu - Gosaikunda - Melamchi Gaon - Thimbu - Kathmandu
This Langtang - Helambu trek combines the unspoiled and remote langtang valley with sacred lakes at Gosainkund. Starting at the Sherpa Village of Syabrubesi on the edge of The Langtang National Park, you climb through beautiful thick Oak and Rhododendron forests up to Langtang village. Home to Himalayan black bear, the goat-like Himalayan Tahr, Rhesus monkeys and red pandas, there are even stories of Yeti Sightings here! At Kyanjin Gompa you get close up views of Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and other mountains that separate Nepal from Tibet. Backtracking for a day to the village of lama hotel, you cut across to Syabru, a village on the way to Gosainkunda. Climbing through the forest to a high plateau, you come to the high and Sacred Lakes where in august every year, thousands of pilgrims come here to bathe in the cold waters. Descending through lush forests you reach tharepati and the Sherpa Village of Melamchigaon, villages on the Helambu Circuit.
Trek Grade: this trek is grading 3 most of the way as you are walking typically 5-6 hours along good trails up to 3500m. However, there are a couple of days that are a little more challenging when you go to Kyangjinggompa (3800m) and Gosainkunda (4165m) but neither day should pose too much problem as the trails are good.
