    Moderate

    Moderate trekking involves 5 – 6 hours a day walking at a steady pace below 4000 meters for around 10 days trekking trip.

The Langtang – Gosainkunda trek offer an opportunity for the trekkers and adventurers to follow in Bill Tillman’s wake and rediscover the Himalayan passes, pristine valley and diverse ethno- culture he found in 1949. Though easily accessible from Kathamandu it remains relatively unspoiled and less developed trekking in Nepal. Several great days of pleasant Langtang Gosainkunda trekking through dense forest and traditional ethnic settlements takes you to the holy Gosaikunda Lake and alpine yak pasture of Kyangin gompa, while the mountain views are genuinely inspiring. Over the years this Gosainkunda has become one of the sacred pilgrimage sites for Shamans, the traditional witch doctors, as well as many Hindu and Buddhist devotees. A cross over the Laurebina Pass at an altitude of 4620 meter with an excellent view into Tibet is simply breathtaking.
