Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek

Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek combines the amazing scenario of snow-capped mountains – Mount Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Jugal Himal etc, rhododendron forests and ethnic diversities of Tamang people of Langtang Region. It also takes you to Langtang Valley, Gosaikunda – the holy place of Hindus, and obviously the Sherpa culture of Helambu region. The journey of Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek starts from Machhapokhari, Balaju, Kathmandu by riding on private vehicle.

During the whole journey, we will cover up 4 districts and that are obviously Kathmandu, Nuwakot, Rasuwa and Sindhupalchwok. These 4 districts have also their own specialties. Kathmandu is the Capital City, which has 7 unesco heritage sites. Nuwakot is once a capital of Nepal during the unification campaign of the great king “Prithvinarayan Shah”, so it is a historical district of Nepal.  We only passes through Trishuli which is a bazaar of Nuwakot District.

Obviously, Rasuwa is the major district/zone of Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek which is a part of Langtang Region. Rasuwa is a mountainous region, that is why the weather of Rasuwa is too cold. So trekkers have to bring necessary equipment of trekking while going on this cold weather.

This trek also takes you to Helambu village of Sindhupalchwok, which is a highland village only about 30 Km far from Kathmandu Valley.
