Langtang National Reserve provides an astounding view of Langtang Lirung mountain that stretches from the far north of Nepal to Tibet. Langtang Valley is a surreal place that offers the facility of lodging for trekkers and a fantastic panoramic view of the Langtang mountain range. It is situated at 3300m above sea level. Surrounding short peaks allow one to conquer mountains ranging up to 5500m. The trail from Langtang valley will lead up to Kyanjing Gompa, a heaven on earth. The cheese factories situated at Langtang valley were built using Swiss technology that has proved its taste consistency over time.
Gosaikunda lake is a holy place for Hindus situated at 4300m. It can be tricky sometimes as the danger of altitude sickness prevails throughout Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek. The increase and decrease of altitude are the fun part of Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek. The lush green oak and rhododendron forest throughout the trail from Langtang to Gosaikunda provides fresh air with the view of some rare species such as Red Panda. Tea houses in Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu trek are warm and cozy to grab a coffee and read books. Gosaikunda lake is also the origin of the Trishuli river, which now serves as the best river for white water rafting. The majestic Ganesh and Langtang Lirung, which are more than 7000m above sea level, take away the breath of every trekker passing through the Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek. The Swiss cheese factory at Singh Gompa is an attractive option to remove cheese too much throughout Langtang Gosaikunda Helambu Trek.
Helambu is the shortest destination from Kathmandu compared to Langtang and Gosainkunda. It is the entry point of Gosaikunda if the trekker wants to travel the reverse route. It is the most accessible trail among the previous treks. The maximum altitude can reach up to 3200m which is quite a decent height to get the scenic view of the Himalayas ahead. Sherpa and Tamang are two distinct cultures that have their indifferences but have many things in common. Trekkers have plenty of options to arrive at Helambu. The most common starting point is a taxi or local bus ride from Kathmandu. An alternative way via the Arniko highway will add more fun to the beginning of the adventure ahead. Melamchi gun, Tarkeghyang, and Sermathang are the points not to be missed to have one more cup of coffee for the trek. Gosaikunda lake appears to look different when reached through Helambu. Surya Kunda, above Gosaikunda, is at 4700m and is a delight to watch.
