Trip Description - Helambu Gosaikunda Trek

Helambu Gosaikunda Trek is starts from Sundarijal in Kathmandu and end at Syabrubesi in Rasuwa district. The journey starts from Kathmandu which is the capital of the Himalayan state “Nepal“, where you will explore and explore the city in your spare time in anticipation of your ascent. The trekker will return to Kathmandu by deluxe air-conditioned bus from Syabrubesi, and travel to Sundarijal by private vehicle. Gosaikunda Lake is also an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in Langtang National Park, Nepal.

It is located in Rasuwa district on 13.8 hectares (34 acres) at an altitude of 4,380 meters above sea level. The lake melts and becomes the Trishuli River; in winter season the lake will be frozen or ice for six months from October to June. We pass through the terraces of Helambu through the rhododendron forest to the Gosaikunda lake. Most of the time we pass small villages with their monasteries and chortens and enjoy magnificent views of the mountains. It is one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Nepal. A major destination for thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims and thousands more are visiting each year.

It has more than 70 glaciers of various sizes, the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges and high lakes including Gosaikunda, Parvati Kund, Bhairav Kund and Dudh Kund. Unique costumes, dress, traditionally built stone houses, and beautifully carved wooden porches reflect their culture and way of life. Most hiking trails pass through semi-tropical forests where moss covers the ground and orchids cling to tree fragments. We cross the sacred lake of Gosaikunda and exit Laurebina La (4,620 m). The Tamang community is in the majority in this area. Partially preserved as a Langtang National Park, the area offers a natural walking experience and knowledge of the cultural traditions of the Tamangs.

Accommodation offered during the trip

The accommodation we use may vary depending on our package travel and the range of travel destinations. Before or after the trip you can book comfortable hotels in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara for your stay. If you book a tea house trekking trip, we will provide a small two-bed room for sharing in the hill lodges which is a basic facility but very clean.

Now, better-equipped lodges are also available in Annapurna and Everest areas but we recommend trekkers to use accommodation above 3,500 meters where clean rooms and clean food are readily available. Sometimes a level of flexibility may be required when trekking in remote mountain areas. We believe that you will complete your vacation without any problems and have the trip of a lifetime. If you book camping/trekking, our camping team will manage a comfortable camping site by the river where possible.

There will usually be a dedicated support team on the trip to move luggage and equipment, set up camp, and prepare your food. You will find more detailed information about travel accommodation which is mentioned separately in the lodging section of each vacation package page.

However, you can expect excellent service and high quality in any budget range you choose. You can learn more about different types of travel and their features and the proposed travel price by contacting us directly where we will be very pleased to answer your questions. We always try to choose comfortable accommodation with local character reflecting the best value based on twin share accommodation.

When you book a trip, unless you request a private single room, we will arrange for you to share a twin bed room with a person of the same gender. If you request a private single room, you will need to pay a single room supplementary fee. Please note that during the trek, if the destination is 4000 meters above sea level, only dormitory accommodation with private beds will be available. On trekking trips we try our best but do not promise guaranteed room options. For most of our camping trips, we supply branded two-person tents, including groundsheets.

Mess tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent, service plates, bowls, and all necessities are provided. Members of the mountaineering travel group are requested to manage according to the options given on the website.
