Helambu Gosaikunda Treks short Itinerary

The Helambu Gosaikunda Trek is a popular trekking route in Nepal that combines the natural beauty and cultural richness of the Helambu region with the stunning alpine scenery of the Gosaikunda Lakes. The trek takes about 7-8 days to complete and is moderately challenging, with several steep ascents and descents.

The trek begins in Sundarijal, near Kathmandu, and follows the same route as the Helambu trek for the first few days. You will pass through lush forests, picturesque villages, and terraced fields, and get to interact with the friendly locals and learn about their way of life. The Gosaikunda Lakes offer panoramic views of the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges. The trek then descends through beautiful alpine forests and meadows before ending in the village of Dhunche.

Helambu Gosaikunda Trekking is inside Langtang National Park and Shivapuri National Park, Helambu Gosaikunda Trek offers several species of flora, fauna, and endangered wildlife. Also, the trek offers a stunning view of the snow-clad mountain range, including Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Jugal Himal, and the Annapurna range

Often, the Langtang Gosaikunda trek is done clockwise, but the Helambu Gosaikunda trek is done anti-clockwise starting from Sundarijal. This allows you to avoid crowds and enjoy the scenery.

After a few days of trekking, you will reach the holy lakes of Gosaikunda, which are located at an altitude of 4,380 meters. The lakes are considered sacred by both Hindus and Buddhists and are surrounded by snow-capped peaks and glaciers. You can take a dip in the cold and refreshing waters of the lakes and soak in the stunning views of the Himalayas.
