Lantang and Gosaikund Lake

Langtang National Park has dense forests of oak, birch, and pine. It offers trekkers flat alpine meadows and is considered the home of the yak. In Kyanjin Gompa, a cheese factory gives you the opportunity to sample the tasty local yak cheese. Trekking further up the Langtang Valley you will have an exceptional glimpse of Langtang Lirung and the foot of one its major glaciers.

 

Through a rocky landscape the trail passes two glacial lakes before reaching the amazing blue Gosaikund Lake. In August, thousands of Hindus come to bathe here and make offerings to the gods, creating a spiritual and energetic atmosphere.

 

In Langtang there are fewer trekkers on the trails and good, but basic accommodations, giving you a more intimate feel of the region and greater interactions with the local population. For a short trek Lantang is a great choice as the Lantang Region provides excellent views and scenic landscapes.

The Langtang Region

The Langtang Region is renowned for having more than 70 glaciers of varying sizes, rugged terrain, fantastic views of the snow-capped peaks that run along the Tibetan border, high alpine forests and pastures, deer, ancient Buddhist monasteries, Tamang art, the longest glacier in Nepal, yaks and holy mountain lakes that are used on Hindu pilgrimages to purifying the soul. There is even a yak cheese factory in the region that offers tours to trekkers.

 

The people in Langtang are mostly of Tamang and Tibetan origin who have a unique culture that goes back hundreds of years. Langtang is easily accessible from Nepal's capital, Katmandu, and has fewer trekkers generally. It offers low altitude treks with good accommodations and a pleasant climate. The Lantang Trek is a good option for those with a short amount of time or those who prefer to trek at a low altitude.

"Our trek with Experience the Himialayas was superb and j would highly recommend the company to anyone who is interested in successfully reaching Everest Base Base whilst being educated along the way. We were looked after impeccable by the team and our Head Guide Tanka was amazing. The three acclimatisation days I believe helped us massively to all reach Base Camp successfully without any altitude issues. The accommodation is basic, but if you read any information for any trek, this is the deal and to be expected, but I would say that most of the tea houses were better then I had hoped.\r\nWith experience the Himalayas I felt 100% safe, comfortable and looked after at all times. Alongside what is a once in a lifetime experience, the whole trek was amazing.\r\n5stars. Thank you."

"We have had a brilliant time doing the Everest Base Camp trip!! Our guides Tanka and Kharma were fantastic - they were very kind, knowledgeable and kept us safe at all times.\r\n\r\nThe three acclimatization days were important and we are glad that we choose this company over some of the others that just offer two. all of us made it to Base Camp which was great.\r\n\r\nThe teahouses were basic but comfortable, and the food was tasty. Really impressed with the trip and would recommend Experience the Himalayas to others. "

This was our second visit to Nepal within two years and like the first we have been wonderfully looked after by Bijay and his team. Our guide Raj and our porter Kamil have given us 5 star care and we can highly recommend them both. We hope to return to Nepal in the future and will use Experience the Himalayas again.
