Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek starts with a day bus or jeep ride to Syabrubesi, the journey begins entering to the attractive Langtang Valley; famous for the region’s beautiful destination aptly entitled the valley of glacier. Here the mountain valley is brilliant. On either side of valley, mountains rise, towering high in to the sky. The valley offers pine forest, slow moving rivers and swift mountain streams, rugged rock and snow- capped peaks, grassy downs and meadows strewn with daisies and wild Primus. In the upper part of valley there are snow bridges spanning angry torrents, high passes enveloped in mist, tiny lake with iceberg floating on them and water of crystalline brightness. There are also high mountains of slide ice. You have a stunning view of Langtang Lirung, Langshisha Ri, Yala peak, Gangchempo, Ganja-La range, Dorje Lakpa many other white peaks from Tesrko Ri which one of the best demanding day excursion from Kyanjin Gompa.
Gosainkunda, believed to be sacred land in Hinduism, is spotted with lakes atop the mountain, offering a quiet respite. There are few visitors outside of those who come for the summer festival. During the Janai Purnima (secret-thread festival) in August full moon day every year, Thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here for worship and holy bath. Many Shamans from around the world visit the site in this specific day and the Shamans show their performance in the full moon day. There is a black rock in the center of the lake said to be the head of a lord Shiva. Legend says; Lord Shiva created this high altitude lake when he pierced a glacial with his trident to get a water to quench is thirst from consuming some poison.

In September 2016, I completed the Lantang Helambu 15 day trek organized by Wilderness Excursion. For the first time in quite a few treks in different countries, everything went as planned, from being met at the airport on arrival, up to the taxi back to the airport at the end of the trek. Pradip made sure I had all the permits and information I required, attending such matters in person.My guide, Suppa, was cheerful, energetic and patient with the many questions I asked, and made sure I was well fed along the way, even going as far as cooking meals at times. Good cook, too. The teahouses chosen for each night were generally good, given that choice is limited, and the meals varied from good to excellent. Earplugs are recommended for those places with very thin walls. September turned out to be wet or cloudy, or both, so panoramic views were rare, but the scenery was spectacular anyway, and as always, the people along the way provided interesting encounters. I thoroughly recommend Pradip, Suppa and Wilderness Excursion if you are headed to Nepal.
