Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda Trek (15days)

Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Trek has many highlights like being awarded by the eye-catching views of Manaslu, Annapurna range plus Ganesh Himal; encountering the holy practices, culture and so on of the core ethnic people like Tamang as well as Sherpa and they are very much identical to Tibetan groups. We can also spot rich natural world, deep wooded area with wild vegetation as well as diverse animal types that adds magic to the trek.
Gosainkunda that falls to the northern side of Kathmandu valley is rather out-of-the-way and lightly settled spot. This glacier lake, Gosainkunda is the most recognized one comprising a number of several lakes flanking to it. A vast figure of Hindu pilgrims reaches at the lake in August especially during a full- moon date. Hindu religion has a belief that the Lord Shiva hit the rock with his sanctified stick; in consequence the lakes were created. Plus, the lake is also regarded as holy by Buddhists.
This 15-days Langtang Valley and Gosainkunda Trek designed by Third Eye Adventure bestows you the preference to walk from side to side with semi-tropical wooded area where moss occupies the territory, orchids fix on to tree trunks, wide jungles of pine, birch, oak etc. Also, you will get to experience one of the astonishing chances to observe mostly untouched cultural practices that will dwell within you forever. You can go for the tranquil and attractive trek with us and keep wonderful memories on your mind allowing you to introduce with Sherpa people and see huge peaks.
