The Langtang Valley with Gosainkunda Trek is a 15-day trek. The trek goes along the Langtang valley located to the north of Kathmandu valley. The trek is rather short but offers sublime vistas of the forests, Himalayas, and surrounding scenery. The Langtang Valley with Gosainkunda Trek also passes through the Langtang National Park. Therefore, it allows the trekkers to enjoy the bio-diversity of the park as well.
The beautiful Gosainkunda Lake is one of the main attractions on the trek. Kyanjin Gompa and Shin Gompa are major religious sites on the trek. Since the trek runs through the national park, trekkers can enjoy sights of the wildlife in the national park. Thus, Red Panda, Himalayan Thar, and Barking Deer are a few examples. Similarly, the trek is an opportunity to learn about Tamang and Tibetan cultures.
