The Langtang Gosaikunda trek offer an opportunity for the trekkers and adventurers to explore the Himalayan passes, pristine valley and diverse ethno- culture. Though easily accessible from Kathmandu it remains relatively unspoiled and less developed trekking route in Nepal. Several great days of pleasant walking through dense forest and traditional ethnic settlements takes you to the alpine yak pasture land of Kyangim Gompa and the holy Gosaikunda Lake, while the mountain views are genuinely inspiring. Over the years this Gosainkunda lake has become one of the sacred pilgrimage sites for Shamans, the traditional witch doctors, as well as many Hindu and Buddhist devotees. A cross over the Laurebina Pass at an altitude of 4620 meter with an excellent view into Tibet is simply breathtaking on this Langtang Gosaikunda trekking.
