The Langtang region trekking is one of the most well-liked trekking regions in Nepal. Among them, Gosainkunda Trek is the popular one because of the scenic lake and mountain views. In good weather, you can connect the Langtang and Helambu treks through the trek to holiest, scenic and high-altitude Gosainkunda Lake. It can also be possible to hike the trail as an individual trek or even as a return visit to Dhunche to the Lakes (7 days), though the chance of ascending in these two cases can cause acclimatization trouble unless you have done other treks higher than 4000m. There are plenty of lodges and guest houses are available en-route so that finding shelter is not a problem. Normally, it takes four days to trek from Dhunche, close to the starting point of Langtang Trek, and to Tharepati in the Helambu region.
The Gosainkunda Trek can also be done by turning-off the Langtang trek from Thulo Syabru. And it is an outstanding selection as a return route to Kathmandu from the Langtang trek. Tea houses in Thulo Syabru, Sing Gompa and Tharepati are good but Phedi and Ghopte have quite basic. The major attraction during the trek is Gosaikunda Lake (4380m). Gosaikunda is the place for a Hindu pilgrimage every August, when hundreds of Sadhus trek to this holiest lakes, however, this is the monsoon season as it is not so good for trekking.
Gosainkunda Trek offers excellent panoramic views of the snow-capped peaks including Annapurnas, Manaslu (8156m), the four peaks of the Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung.
