Langtang Circuit Trek has turned out as one of the most popular trekking destinations in the Langtang Region of Nepal. With a combination of full proof adventure, diverse wildlife, photogenic scenery, and Tibetan-influenced ethnic encounters, this trip has become a favorite for a high number of visitors.
The trekking trip starts with a drive from the crowded Kathmandu Valley and goes along the Tibetan-originated river of Trishuli to get to Syabrubesi. From there starts your real trekking trip along the Lama Hotel and fully devastated village of Langtang until we get to the Kyanjin Gompa. Again, get back on the same road to traverse to the sacred lakes of Gosaikunda.
The trails go through the forests of rhododendron and oak along the Langtang and Trishuli River. The major highlights of this trek include the forests, wildlife, and the views. Look at the high Langtang RI, and such other peaks along the route. Don’t forget to enjoy the soothing hot springs along the way.
The Langtang Village is one of the oldest villages in Nepal with a pure Tibetan influence. The village was destroyed by the 2015 earthquake which stopped the trekking to this region. However, now, the village has already stood up from such devastation and is in the process of construction.
The first major destination of Kyanjin Gompa offers great insights on the monasteries and also offer one of the best cheese factories of the country. The next major destination of Gosaikunda has a series of holy lakes in its periphery. The lake is thought to be a resting place for the Lord Shiva. The small lakes around are also classified on the basis of other Hindu Gods and Goddesses.
During the trek, you will come across several people following their own religion and norms. But, the major religious group along the way is the Tamang people. The best season for this trek is the Spring and Autumn seasons.
