This trek combines three of the most popular trekking routes in the Langtang region- The Langtang Valley, Helambu valley, and the Gosaikunda Lake. Situated at the north of Kathmandu this trek provides the view of the snowclad mountaintops, the Holy lake of Gosainkunda (4,380m) as well as the deep valley full of diverse wilderness and abundance of vegetation.
We start our trek from Syabru Besi. The off-the-beaten track passes through the lush Rhododendron and Bamboo forests as well as the pristine waterfalls, all of which makes this trek even more beautiful. We follow the Langtang River and drop to the Langtang Valley. From here, the Langtang Linrung (7,234m) becomes visible at its full might. We head to the Tserko Ri (5,150m) and move towards the Holy Gosaikunda Lake. Tens of thousands of trekkers, as well as Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrims, visit this land to worship Lord Shiva. Our destination shifts to the Helambu valley where the Gurung and Tamang people have inhabitated the place. We exit through the Shivapuri National Park and return back to Kathmandu.

Langtang is without a doubt the most beautiful place I have seen in all of Asia, and maybe the world. If you wake up early enough to catch the sunrise, the view over the mountains that you are literally surrounded by every day is awesome. Happyland sorted out all the red tape and business side of things so we just had to be there when they told us to and trust what our guide told us to do. It was a real challenge, but it would've been way harder if we had to drag our bags along by ourselves. Those porters are heroes! They earned their tip for sure.

I'm really happy that my husband and I decided to do this trek. The ecology in Langtang is phenomenal, our particular favourites being the rhodedendrons and the many monolithic trees that provided much-needed shade on the hotter days! The only part we really struggled with was the pass, which was over 4,600m, but our guide Pasang was there to cheer us along and provide moral support, all the while making it look like he was taking a stroll down the beach. Thank you Pasang for all your help, and thank you Happy for organising the trip! We had an amazing time and if we come back to Nepal, we'll be sure to come and pay you a visit!
