Langtang Valley Gosaikunda Laurebina Pass Trek is one of the best itineraries to explore the wonders of the Langtang and Helambu regions. It's an incredibly adventurous trek to the ancient Kyanjing Gompa and holy Gosainkunda Lake. The trail goes through beautiful valleys and dense woodland. You'll be trekking in Langtang National Park, so expect encounters with animals and birds. The Gosaikunda Pass trek is for experienced trekkers, given the difficulty the journey holds.
Langtang Trek with Gosaikunda Lake and Helambu lets you meet with indigenous people and explore the lush rhododendron forests, fine mountain villages, a high alpine lake, and a Himalayan pass. You explore two beautiful regions, Langtang and Helambu, on this 15 days adventurous trek.
The rich Langtang Tamang heritage culture and tradition add more essence to the Langtang Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass trekking. Tamangs are one of the early settlers of the Langtang region and are believed to be descendants of Tibetans. Their norms, values, and practices are similar to those of Tibetans. Apart from Tamangs, Sherpas are the other inhabitants of the Langtang region. While trekking, you'll come across many chortens, prayer wheels, stupas, prayer flags, and mani walls. Upon crossing the Laurebina pass (4,681 m), you enter the Helambu region, where you'll meet Hyolmos (also an indigenous group).
Kyanjin Gompa and Shig Gompa are the two ancient and most important religious sites for the locals in the Langtang region. They are located at 3,860 m and 3,330 m, respectively. As the name of the package says, the trek leads you to the pristine and holy Gosaikunda Lake, situated at 3,860 m. It is a holy lake and a pilgrimage site, visited by hundreds of pilgrims every year (especially in August during Janai Purnima). The lake is believed to be the abode of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati, as per Hindu mythology.
