Langtang & Laurebina La

This is a classic trek to Langtang valley then to the beautiful Gosainkund lakes followed by crossing Laurebina La pass.

Langtang extends north of Kathmandu to the Tibetan border and attracts far fewer trekkers than Nepal’s other main trekking areas of Everest and Annapurna. Langtang was first explored by Bill Tilman, the well known Himalayan explorer and mountaineer, who described it as "one of the world’s most beautiful valleys". The trek passes through magnificent forests home to the endangered red panda, himalayan black bear and musk deer.

The Langtang valley then opens out to an alpine plateau with fine views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal. From lodges at Kyangin Gompa you can explore the impressive glaciated upper valley surrounded by high Himalayan peaks. The trek up to Gosainkund takes you through the high alpine zone and then we cross the Laurebina La pass adorned with Buddhist prayer flags. From here we descend into the Helambu valley with superb views north to the Himalayas and south to forested hills and the city of Kathmandu.
