Lantang Trek

 

The Following Langtang Trek itinerary is in fact a combination of Langtang, Gosain Kund and Helambu Circuite treks.  It goes from the Holy Gosain kund to the rich valley of helambu via the Langtang region, at the border with Tibet. Lying at about 4,380meters, glacial Gosain kund (kund means Lake) is an important pilgrimage center. Every year, during the monsoon, a festival takes place on full moon night attracting thousand of Hindus, both Nepalese and Indian, who come here to worship Shiva? According to legend, the water of the lake was created when Shiva flung his trident on to the rocks. Then, this usually quiet place, with only a few lodges, is transformed into a hive of activity. Festivities take place everywhere and food and accommodation can be very expensive.

The narrow, highvalleyofLangtang, tucked in between Langtang Lirung (7,234m) to the north and a range of lower mountains (6,000m) to the south, attracts fewer pilgrims and trekkers. It is sparsely populated and access is difficult. Nevertheless, the region offers surprising contrasts. Up to 3,00meters, the progression occurs along the Langtang khola which runs through a narrow gorge. Among several bamboo jungle and temperate forests. Ather Langtang village, where the National park headquarters are located, the valley becomes wider and forests become alpine grasslands. Kyanjin Gyang or kyanjin Gompa (3,950m), the last inhabited hamlet, serves as a summer pasture for Yak herds. This is the closest you can get to the glacial area of the High Himalaya which from the border with Chinese Tibet.

The Helambu lying 70 kilometers to the northeast ofKathmandu, Helambu, sometimes called Helmu, is celebrated for its picturesque villages, magnificent views and mild weather. The region is prosperous and hospitable and is mainly populated with Sherpas, distantly connected to the ethnic sherpas found in the eastern region of Khumbu, around Everest. The valley drained by the Melamchi khola, lies at a mid-range altitude and there are daily connections between the capital and the villages of Sundarijal and Panchkhal. For these reasons, Helambu is a popular trek, especially among amateurs and trekkers in a hurry. Indeed trekking to Gosai kund, Langtang and Helambu is considered fairly simple, but only if they are undertaken separately. Combining all three makes for a difficult and rather specialized trek. The crossing the Ganja La, (5,106m) specifically requires the services of a special mountaineer Guide.
