Langtang & Helambu Trek
A visit to the Langtang and Helambu regions will take you to some of the most superb trekking in Nepal. Lying just north of the Kathmandu Valley, Helambu is the most accessible trekking region in Nepal, where you can experience some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole country and trek through unspoiled Sherpa villages. This 14 day trek begins at Syabru besi, 90 km from Kathmandu. The trail gradually ascends upstream along the Bhote Kosi river, passing through the forests of the Langtang valley to the alpine meadows and yak pastures around the holy Kyangjin Gompa. You have the opportunity to ascend Kyangjin Ri (4350m), from which point the 360 degree views of the Himalayan mountains are truly spectacular. You trek to the sacred and spectacularly beautiful Gosainkund Lake situated at an elevation of 4336 metres and on to Kathmandu via the lovely Helambu region and Sundarijal.
