    Langtang Valley And Gosainkunda Pass Trekking - 16 days

    After leading several Himalayan expeditions myself, including the first American ascent of Annapurna I, I can attest to Chandra’s outstanding qualities as leader and organizer. He is an especially good guide for student groups. I first met Chandra when my daughter attended 8th grade at the Lincoln School in Kathmandu, Nepal, and he was the guide selected by the expat community to lead the 8th  grade students on a week-long “Explore Nepal” trek.  The students and parents really appreciated Chandran’s thoughtful planning and leadership.
    In the last twenty years, I've enjoyed a dozen diverse adventures in Nepal with Chandra.  He always provides great food, gear, and guides as well as personalized itineraries and attention for individual travelers and small and large groups. His company is a good choice for any individual, school, group or family that wants to enjoy their own trek with a personal itinerary at a relatively low cost.
    If you might like a Nepal adventure customized to your interests, abilities, and schedule,  you can learn more at at  Himalayan Icefall Trekking or contact Chandra at himtrekzone@gmail.com.

    Langtang – Gosaikunda is the nearest trekking region from Kathmandu. This trek combines the remote and spectacular valley of Langtang, with the high mountains, and high altitude lakes at Gosainkunda and Tibet border to the north. We travel through Trisuli Bazaar and Dhunche to Syabrubesi, a Sherpa village located at the very edge of the Langtang National Park and next to Bhotekoshi River. We then trek east into the Langtang valley, crossing the few rivers, as we trek up along a gorge-like, lower section of the valley. We pass through oak and rhododendron forests and even cross glacial moraine on our way to the Tamang village of Langtang. A little further up the valley is Kyangin Gompa, where we stop overnight and sample the local yak cheese. We also climb Tserko Ri for excellent mountain views of Langtang lirung ranges and Glaciers.
    Next, we continue trekking in the beautiful Langtang Valley and reach Gosaikunda which is a revered place of pilgrimage for both Buddhists and Hindus. Moreover, the place is named after the glistening Gosaikunda Lake whose water is believed to have magical healing powers.
    Highlight: Beautiful Hidden valley, Tibetan Sherpa culture, Old Tamang villages, Holy lakes, High pass, trekking in a hilly region, Rhododendron flower in many different colors, and a beautiful trace of the field and Panoramic views of Mountains ranges.
