Helambu & Gosaikunda Lakes Trek - 10 Days

Trip Introduction
Helambu & Gosaikunda Lakes TrekLangtang & Helambu is siatuated north-east of Kathmandu valley border with Tibet, an area inhabited by Tibetans & Tamang who share a similar religion, language and clothing style. The landscapes we cross are extremely varied: rice-terraces, gigantic rhododendron and firs forests and, in the highest parts, a rock and shrub wilderness with the fascinating backdrop of snowy peaks. The route passes by the sacred lakes of Gosaïkund (4380m), a pilgrimage spot where, during the full moon festival of August, flow hundreds of pilgrims. After Gosaikund we continue across the Laurebina pass towards the Helambu valley and its numerous and picturesque Sherpa villages. It is advisable to plan an extra day, which can be spent in Melamchi Gaon, a Sherpa village, which is sure to charm you.
