Langtang Gosaikunda Trek - 11 Days

Langtang Gosaikunda TrekBeautiful Langtang Valley lies close to the Tibetan border, north of Kathmandu. The lush rhododendron and oak forests of its lower reaches form part of a vast National Park, providing sanctuary for a variety of animals, birds and wild flowers. By contrast, the upper valley is dominated by shimmering glaciers, that tumble off the ice-clad summits of 7000m peaks. Inhabiting the valley are communities whose Tibetan origins are reflected in a distinct style of building and way of life. The local Tamang "Sherpas" are descendents of the cavalry of Ghengis Khan, complete with hardy mountain horses.

After a week trekking in the valley, with two days set aside for exploring its upper reaches, we head for Gosainkund, an important pilgrimage site, whose sparkling lakes are sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists. To reach the lakes we must climb, but with the reward of arguably one of the finest Himalayan panoramas, from the Ganesh Himal west to the Annapurnas.
