Langtang & Helambu Trekking (16 days)
Langtang Valley TrekHelambu is the most accessible trekking region in Nepal. The trek starts from Syabrubensi, after driving 150 km from Kathmandu. The trail gradually ascends upstream along the Bhote Kosi river, passing through the forests of the Langtang valley to the alpine meadows and yak pastures around Kyangjin. After an ascent of Kyangjin Ri (4350m), from where the 360 degree mountain views are truly spectacular, the trail goes back to Syabru. From here, we further trek to the sacred Gosainkund lake situated at an elevation of 4336 meter and to Kathmandu via the lovely Helambu region. This moderate trek can be done any time of the year except during monsoon (July & August).
