The Langtang - Gosainkund combined trek is a beautiful and varied journey within a hidden mountain valley and climbing up to a high alpine pass. Home to the shy red panda, the Langtang area is best known for its pristine forests of mixed conifer and rhododendron and high-elevation meadows of wild sheep, Tibetan-like culture and lovely mountain views. The name "Langtang" comes from the story of the ancient Buddhist lama who followed his lost yak into the valley - "Lang" means "yak" and "Tang" means, "follow". The region mirrors the diverse culture of Nepal itself. Rising from the Langtang, the Gosainkund trek (also spelled as Gosainkunda and Gosain Kunda, is also the name for an alpine lake of spiritual significance to the local people. At a height of 4380m, the lake is one of 108 in this area of the Langtang National Park, with the trek over Laurebina Pass (4,610m), skirting its shoreline. This is a pristine and very scenic region of Nepal to visit.
Gosaikunda, also spelled Gosainkunda and Gosain Kunda is an alpine freshwater oligotrophiclake in Nepal's Langtang National Park, located at an altitude of 4,380 m (14,370 ft) with a surface of 13.8 ha (34 acres). Together with associated lakes, the Gosaikunda Lake complex is 1,030 ha (4.0 sq mi) in size. The lake melts and sips down to form the Trishuli River and remains frozen for six months in winter October to June. There are 108 lakes in this area, small to medium in size.

This kind of trek doesn’t really require previous trekking and mountaineering experiences. It doesn’t require any technical experience, only that you be in good physical condition and be able to hike 4 – 6 hours over hilly terrain up to 4,300m of altitude with a light day pack.
If you have any previous experiences would be helpful but if you don’t have is also not important matter of issue. This trek will introduce you about trekking in the Himalayas and also about the local cultures, traditions and local people. Even if you are around the age of 65 years, you can be a candidate for this trek.

Dream Himalaya Adventures provided us the best mother / daughter trip that we could experience. We could not have chosen a better agency for our trek to Langtang and Helambu area. Dawa was very helpful from the first email contact. He did not only organize the trek but also the airport pick-up, city tour and all preparations needed with our guide Tendi. Tendi was the best guide that we could wish for. He was not only funny and entertaining and also gave us a glimpse into his culture and his life in Nepal as a professional mountaineer. He really cared about our health and well being during day and night which was very important for our mothers. We enjoyed the trip to the fullest and want to shout out our special thanks for Ram, the driver, and the porters Sanjep and Pasang, and of course Dawa and Tendi for making everything possible.
