 Langtang Gosainkunda trek is self famous and popular not only amongst foreigners but also internal tourist of Nepal. Gosaikunda Lake is supposed to possess mystical, holy and spiritually enlightening waters, thus making the Langtang Gosaikunda trek, popular not only among foreigners, but also the internal tourists of Nepal. Around August and September, this sacred lake attracts tourists from all around. The trail is significant, not only because of the presence of the lake, but also occasional views of Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganchenpo mountains, passage through the Langtang River and observations of the style of living of the inhabitants of the Langtang region. Gosaikunda is formed by the melt of glaciers and is located at a high plateau along with other lakes like the Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda around it.

The trek commences with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi accompanied by the alluring views of the Trishuli River, glimpses of Ganesh Himal and the Langtang National Park. A short trek from Syabrubesi brings the Lama Hotel and a further descend brings Rimche. En-route trekkers can view the Bhote Koshi River and also some red pandas, monkeys and bears present in the Langtang National Park.

 An occasional view of the Lang tang Lirung Mountain through the Ghore Tabela brings the Langtang village which is followed by a steep climb to the Kyangjin village. Kyangjin village is home to the soothing and mesmerizing views of the pristine snow covered peaks like the Langtang Lirung, Ganjala peak, Tserko Ri, Langsisa Ri and many others. Kyangjin Gompa, a Buddhist heritage site and the Kyangjin Ri, the viewpoint are the village’s other salient features.

Upon returning back to the Lama Hotel, further trek can be carried out to the beautiful Thulo Syabru which provides the views of the Ganesh and Langtang Himal. Further trek through Dursagang, Sing Gompa and Lauribinayak brings the holy Gosaikunda Lake via a rugged trail with views of Himal Chuli, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung and other Tibetan peaks. Gosaikunda is adorned all around by a dozen more spell bounding lakes. Retracing the same path back to Kathmandu ends the trek.
