About Langtang Gosainkunda Trek - 13 Days
The 13 Days Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is one of the most popular trekking destinations in the Nepal Himalaya, it’s situated a short distance to the north of Kathmandu near the Nepal-Tibet border. This trip is the best for family holidays and hike beginners who want to see the mid-hills and beautiful mountain scenery meeting with indigenous people on the route of your journey.
It is a marvelous journey combination of scenic and cultural walks with the sacred Gosaikunda pond, one of the holiest spots for the Hindu andBuddhist religions. The trek itinerary is ideal for moderate high-altitude novice and family holiday trips because less trek-experienced people can achieve this adventure through the natural walking into the famous Langtang National Park.
The major highlight of this trek offers you an enjoyable and attractive hiking destination, where you will be soaked with awesome views of mountains, rolling hills, and dramatic landscapes, and walking into a pristine forest of tall rhododendron- magnolia-pines with bamboo forest where rare and elusive Red Panda are often sighted during the walk around the natural environment.
