Langtang Gosainkunda Lake Trek - 699 USD

The Langtang – Gosainkunda trek offer an opportunity for the trekkers and adventurers to follow in Bill Tillman’s wake and rediscover the Himalayan passes, pristine valley and diverse ethno- culture he found in 1949. Though easily accessible from Kathamandu it remains relatively unspoiled and less developed trekking in Nepal. Several great days of pleasant Langtang Gosainkunda trekking through dense forest and traditional ethnic settlements takes you to the holy Gosaikunda Lake and alpine yak pasture of Kyangin gompa, while the mountain views are genuinely inspiring. Over the years this Gosainkunda 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.

Important Note

Itinerary and Dates: Every effort will be made to keep to the above itinerary, but as this is adventure travel in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee it. Weather conditions and the health of trekkers can all contribute to changes. Your guide, and their Sherpa assistants, will try to ensure that the trip runs according to plan, but please be prepared to be flexible if necessary. Our aim is to return you safely to Kathmandu in time for your departure flight booking.

Experience Required: This Trek is suitable for keen walkers who are able to walk for 6 – 7 hours each day, with a light rucksack. Some of the days are quite long, and walking feels more strenuous at altitude. Generally, the trail is a good quality, but occasionally it will be uneven and rocky.

Food & Accommodation: You will be accommodated in a teahouse each night, unless the itinerary stipulates tent camping is necessary on some nights. Teahouses are simple, locally-run guesthouses with twin-share or single rooms. Toilets and showers are of varying standards. Typical food available for lunch and dinner is Nepali rice & lentils, pasta, potato dishes, soups or pizzas. Delicious pancakes, porridge, toast and eggs are the main breakfast fare, while tea, coffee and hot chocolate are always available. You will probably be pleasantly surprised by the variety of food at the lodges.

What about our luggage: One porter will be shared between two trekking clients. Porters will carry a maximum of 12kgs per client. If you wish to, you may keep excess clothing and items in a storage room at your Kathmandu hotel.

What will the temperature be like: The weather obviously varies considerably by season and may also change drastically within a single day, particularly at high altitude. If your itinerary takes you above 3,000m need to be prepared for conditions that may range from -10 to 25 degrees on any day. Some useful weather data is available here: You will also need good protections from sun and wind exposure. Contact us for a suggested trek packing list to suit your itinerary.

How much money should we bring: You will need to carry Nepali Rupee to pay for things not covered by your itinerary package. This may include bottled water; evening hot showers; additional food treats; additional hot drinks; equipment replacement or repairs; battery charging and gifts and tips. Shopping can also be done on your last day in Thamel. Talk with us in our office before departing on your trek and we can provide more advice and currency exchange.

What about Acute Mountaineering Sickness (AMS): AMS is essentially impossible to predict. Some people are affected, and other not. Only a very small percentage of people suffer serious effects. Effects may become apparent at any altitude, not just at the extremes of your itinerary.

Signs of AMS includes:

  • Dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Shortness of breath
  • Drowsiness
  • Flatulence
  • Peripheral Edema (Swelling of extremities)
  • Fluctuation in body temperature

Prevention of AMS:

  • Adequate rest prior to the trek.
  • Adequate hydration maintained throughout the trek.
  • Adequate salt and sugar in your bloodstream. So, eat plenty and don’t skip meals.
  • Adequate warmth. Use clothing layers to maintain warmth without sweating excessively. Controlled and regular breathing. Breathe deeply from the diaphragm to use all your lung capacity. Try and walk to a pace that maintains controlled and steady breathing. Breathe through your nose to protect you throat from drying. Consider wearing a muff over your mouth and nose at high altitudes.
  • Managed exertion. Trekking is not a race to the next pass or teahouse. Go at a constant, manageable pace, do not chase after the person in front. Keep a slow steady pace rather than pushing too hard and needing to stop frequently. Take time to enjoy the scenery.
