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.

"Thorough paperwork helped us prepare. An excellent guide in Kumar, who really couldn't do anymore to keep us safe and well looked after in every aspect. The 3 acclimitisation days will have no doubt made a difference for our success. It would be worth updating the current paperwork to up the recommended daily money allowance. You might also look at whether the trip down could be done over 4 days. Well done team, highly recommended. "

"Experience the Himalayas was an exceptional trip, from start to finish. They are truly caring and supportive. The company went over and above expectations to tailor a trek the perfectly suited my request and needs. They then were meticulous with the advice and help given regarding kit and physical safety. The result was a three week trek, that despite being the hardest physical endurance of my life (with the cumulation of altitude, cold and physical fitness) it was also hands down also the best of my life!! \r\n\r\nI am soo grateful for you knowledge, kindness and friendship. I would recommend this company to everyone and anyone. You are dealing with some serious risks at these altitudes (I spent about ten days trekking over 5000m) and temperatures (I trekked over Christmas and New Year - the coldest but arguably also the clearest, quietest and best time to trek the Everest Region). It is worth setting-up in advance and choosing a company you can trust and rely on. Huge thanks to the whole team including the Manager Bijay, my guide Kumar and Co-owner David!\r\n\r\nI would also recommend doing Everest Base Camp and the 3 high passes in December - to anyone thinking about choosing a 16-20 day trek of a lifetime!"

"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."
