These 2 treks Gosainkunda 12 days and cultural trek 16 days in Langtang are excellent choices for a first trek in Nepal.

They take place in lodges, the steps are not very long and you do not climb too high. Initially, we go up a wide valley irrigated by the glaciers of Langtang with many rice fields upstairs. You will cross many small villages typical of the Langtang Tamang region. Then, bypassing the sacred lakes of Gosainkung offers a panoramic view of the Himalayan range. The Gosainkund Lakes is a place of pilgrimage for Hindus in the month of July. There are 7 lakes.

The third trek to Langtang by crossing the Kangja La called also Ganja La is a more difficult route and offers a circuit little frequented far from the usual paths in an isolated and beautiful environment. Beautiful views of the peaks of Langtang 1 and 2 at 7230 m and 6580 m respectively. For this tents are necessary to pass the La Kangja.

Established in 1976, Langtang Park is the first national park in the Himalayas. It is attached to the Gomolangma Nature Reserve of Tibet. In the spring it’s rhododendron season. You will cross many forests of oaks, bamboos. Many animals, monkeys, dzopios, deer, hawks, pandas although very rare to be able to observe them. Peaceful, quiet it is the Langtang far from the crowds of Annapurnas and Everest offers you a trek off the busy trails closer to nature and its inhabitants.
