Duration: 13 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

The Gosainkunda Lake with Helambu trek is a perfect choice for those trekkers who wish to explore the sheer beauty of Nepali nature, discover traditional and fascinating villages and see the lush rhododendron forests. Situated just north of Kathmandu, this trek is close to the capital and easily accessible without a flight. This is one of the most magnificent treks in Langtang and Helambu region.

This amazingly beautiful trek through Gosainkunda with Helambu begins with a scenic eight to nine-hour drive from Kathmandu. We spend our first night in a mountain lodge in Dhunche from where our trek truly begins. We begin following a very pleasant trail, which takes us through terraced farmlands, traditional Tamang villages, lush and full rhododendron forests, and gorgeous alpine pastures. We will encounter the world-famous Gosainkunda Lake, which provides eye-catching views of the snowy peaks and tranquil lake. It is said that if we are to take a dip into the Gosainkunda Lake, skin diseases and knowingly committed sins will be erased.

After crossing the stunning Laurebina la Pass (4,600m), the Gosainkunda with Helambu trek enters to the Helambu region. This is a fascinating trekking area that will immerse you into the unique Sherpa culture. The region also provides awe-inspiring mountain peaks. Taking us through lush forests, terrace farming villages, and a picturesque trail that ends near Kathmandu valley, this trek is one the most breathtaking treks in the Langtang and Helambu region.
