It also takes you to Langtang Valley, Gosaikunda – the holy place of Hindus. The journey of Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek starts from Machhapokhari, Balaju, Kathmandu by riding on a private vehicle.

During the whole journey, we will cover up 4 districts: Kathmandu, Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindhupalchwok. These 4 districts also have their own specialties. Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, which has 7 UNESCO heritage sites. Nuwakot, which was once the capital city of Nepal during the unification campaign of the great king “Prithvi Narayan Shah,” is also historically significant.

Rasuwa is the major district/zone of Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek. It is a mountainous region, so trekkers will have to necessary equipments to tackle the cold weather.
