The Laurebina La Pass is marked with a stone stupa and many praying flags. This pass forms the highest point of the Langtang Trek. We then descend through a wide valley to High Camp (4240 m) and walk further down on a steeper and rocky path to Phedi. Right after Phedi, we descend to a footbridge across a stream.

You may need two nights of hotel stay in Kathmandu before and after the trek, but it is not included in the package. Kathmandu has a wide range of hotels for all budgets and interests.

Meals during the trek

Langtang Gosaikunda trek takes you to high elevations. Hence your body requires enough nutritious food. We provide you with enough nutritious and tasty food in trek regions, but you will not get all the choices available in cities. We provide you with 13 breakfasts, 13 lunches, and 12 dinners during the trek.

Some of the popular menu items are –

Thirteen breakfasts – Oatmeal, Corn Flakes, French toast with Jam, Butter, Cheese, Honey, Tibetan bread or Chapati, Local Tsampa porridge, Eggs, Pancakes, Muesli Breads, fruits, Vegetables, Hot Drinks (varieties of teas and coffees, hot chocolates, etc.)

Thirteen lunches – Dhal, Bhat, Tarkari, Tibetan Bread, Various Soups, Sherpa Stew, Steaks, Sandwiches, Momo (dumplings), Macaroni dishes, Tenduk, Spaghetti Noodles, Thukpa, Pasta, Vegetable curry, Potatoes, Vegetables, Salad Pizza (Tomato, Mushroom, Mixed), Snacks (Papad, Prawn), Desserts, (Rice Pudding, Apple pie), etc

Twelve Dinners – Dhal, Bhat, Tarkari, Tibetan Bread, Various Soups, Sherpa Stew, Steaks, Sandwiches, Momo (dumplings), Macaroni, Tenduk Spaghetti, Noodles Thukpa, Pasta, Vegetable Curry, Potato items, Vegetable and Salad Pizza (Tomato, Mushroom, Mixed), Snacks (Papad, Prawn), Korean Ramen, Desserts (Rice Pudding, Apple pie), Hard Drinks, Steaks, etc

The menu offers traditional, Asian, and Western cuisine, but as we climb up, the menu gets shorter.

We highly recommend fresh vegetable items and plenty of liquids such as green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger tea, and garlic soup (must) at high altitudes. Though plenty of non-veg items are available in trek regions, we do not recommend any of them because the meat in these regions may not be hygienic and healthy.

Similarly, we encourage you to avoid dairy, alcoholic, caffeinated, and hot chocolate items as experts suggest avoiding these items at high-elevation treks.

All personal bills (alcoholic, hot (tea/coffee), and cold drinks) in tea houses/ lodges except standard meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner with seasonal fruits) are excluded from the package.

Best time for Langtang Gosainkunda trek

The weather is the crucial factor to consider for a trek to Langtang Gosaikunda. Spring and autumn are the best seasons for an easy trek with great mountain views. During winter, the trek regions are cold due to snowfall, while the summer monsoon makes the trails slippery and wet.

January – February

This is the coldest season, especially from early January to early February. There is heavy snowfall in the mountains as the temperature dips. Daytime will be warm and admirable with clear skies but, the night is cold. Trek will be a little challenging nevertheless, you will get magical views of snow-capped hills and mountains.

March – April

It is one of the best times to trek to the Langtang and Gosaikunda. The weather is very favorable, and you can catch stunning views of the Langtang Lirung, Langtang II, and other mountains. Temperatures start increasing from mid-March, and many trekkers choose to trek to the Langtang Gosainkunda region during this time. The luscious green, dense bamboo, and birch forests add a new dimension to the whole trek experience.

May – June

This is also the perfect time for trekking, right before the monsoon. Rainfall in Nepal begins from the end of June till mid-August. The spring-summer season makes the trek much more enjoyable.

July – August

The rainfall hits its peak during this time, and you’ll see clouds often. The trails will get a bit slippery but, trekking can still be fun due to the magnificent waterfalls, raging rivers, and frequent rainbows.

September – October

It is another perfect season for the Langtang Gosaikunda trek. As the monsoon slowly ends, a perfect trekking climate sets in. The temperature goes up to 20 degrees during the day and falls to 5 degrees at night. Most trekkers enjoy trekking the most during these months as the skies are clear, allowing great views of the mountains. We highly recommend this time for the Langtang Valley trek, especially between mid to end of September. Nepal’s two biggest festivals – Dashain and Tihar – also fall in these months.

November – December

The winter sets in, and snowfalls begin in the Langtang region, eventually making it challenging to trek. However, you can trek during November, thanks to the sparkling days. With clear skies, the mountains look stunning, but as December starts, the temperatures dip. The nights can get cold with temperatures as low as -5 degrees Celsius.

The weather in the mountain region is unpredictable and changes quickly.


Your 13-day Langtang Gosaikunda Trek package spends two nights over 3500m, where there are chances of being affected by altitude sickness, also called acute mountain sickness. We will be acclimatizing at Kyanjin Gompa. While acclimatizing in Kyanjin Gompa, we will explore various places like the Kyanjin Gompa monastery itself, the cheese factory, or a hike to the Tserko Ri Viewpoint.

Altitude sickness is common among trekkers, but serious altitude sickness requires immediate treatment, and you should not ignore it. Our trek leaders and guides have extensive first-aid training and are well-experienced. We urge you to inform your group leader and guide at the first signs and symptoms.

Your trek leader or guide will suggest precautions against altitude sickness. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to take your time while trekking and drink plenty of water (at least 4 liters per day). If altitude sickness is severe, the only cure is to descend immediately.

Please note that your group leader has the authority to stop your ascent based on your health condition. Please keep in mind that some persons are more vulnerable to altitude sickness than others.

Trip Grade: Fitness level and Health

The Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is easy and rewarding. The hiking duration will range from 3-6 hours a day, depending on the destination, taking regular breaks to admire the mountain views. The trek routes involve long climbs, steep descents, and steep forward trails in rocky paths and forests. So, the fitter you are, the more comfortable and enjoyable your journey will be. If you have trekking experience, it is advantageous but not required. We do not recommend this trek to those who suffer from sensitive medical conditions such as heart or lung disease.

A typical day on the Gosaikunda trek

Each day will bring a unique trek experience, as you enjoy the scenery, take photos, and explore the local villages. Our experienced and qualified guides will guide you to your destination. Porters will carry your luggage. However, you will need to bring with you a regular day pack to carry your essentials.

The day starts with an early morning cup of tea. After a wholesome breakfast, we set off on that day’s walk around 7 to 8 am, depending on the duration and nature of the walk. After trekking for 3 to 4 hours, we will serve you lunch often on the route to your next destination.

The afternoon hike is generally shorter 2 to 3 hours. When you reach our overnight lodge, you can enjoy our extra dietary snacks, then explore the nearby places until it gets dark. We provide dinner between 6 to 7 pm.

In the evening, before going to bed, we discuss each other’s hiking experiences. Your guide will brief you about the next day’s plan. After the trip briefing before going to bed, you can enjoy fun games like cards and Monopoly, watch mountaineering videos if possible, or just read books. Most of our valuable clients also love learning light Nepali words from our crews.

Communication on Langtang Gosainkunda Trek

During the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, internet service will be available at the lodges and comes with some extra service charge. At high altitudes, for safety purposes, we will communicate by phone. Our office will be in contact with all of our trek teams at least once a day through the lead guide to know about the team’s condition. You can buy a local sim in Kathmandu but, the signals may not be strong enough.

Most lodges/ tea houses have Wi-Fi access, which you can use for an extra charge.

Electricity and battery recharge, water on trekking

Throughout the lodges at Langtang Gosaikunda Trek, electricity for the camera and mobile battery recharge is available at an extra cost. During the trek, you can buy either packed mineral water from local lodges and en-route shops or fill your water bottle with boiled water at an extra cost. If you require, we can provide you with water purification pills.

We advise you against drinking water from rivers, taps, and wells in trek regions for hygiene concerns.

Extra personal expenses

This package does not include meals and accommodations in Kathmandu. In addition, all our valuable clients need to bring spending money for visa processing, travel insurance policy purchase, snacks for the trek, hot (tea/coffee), cold and alcoholic drinks, tips, souvenirs, etc. We recommend bringing cash (major currencies), which you can easily exchange for Nepali Rupees in Kathmandu. Trek regions only accept Nepalese currency.

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek Travel Insurance

Though the chances are slim, there are chances of high-altitude sickness and other high-altitude mishaps associated with this trek. So travel insurance is compulsory for this trek. You need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy that covers medical and emergency repatriation – including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses at high altitudes.

We can recommend an insurance company for you based on our valuable client’s experience but, we do not sell insurance policies.

In case of an emergency, we forward your insurance details for processing to your insurance company to arrange rescue operations and transfer to the hospital for treatment. Please send us your insurance information details after booking the trek.

Please call your insurance company and recheck if they cover helicopter rescue at the highest trek elevations in addition to medical treatment costs. Do not just rely on what the insurance companies say on their website.
