Gosaikunda Helambu Trek

The trekking most accessible to Kathmandu is in Helamhu, Gosaikunda and Langtang, all north of capital city. The region is the third most popular trekking area in Nepal. Helambu is typical of hill Nepal near kathmandu, with Yolmo, (Sherpa) population higher up, Tanang lower down, and Hindu castes in the valleys. The lake at Gosaikunda is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists and is a site of mass pilgrimage in August each year. The views along the trail are beautiful - especially from Laurebina Yak and the walk not very difficult, though there is a significant danger of AMS at this altitude. While Langtang is an alpine valley nestled at the Himalaya, and both are the site of Langtang National Park (1710 sq km), which contains a wide range of habitats, from subtropical to alpine. It is especially important for upper temperate and subalpine species, such as pheasants. Mammals include the red panda, Himalayan musk deer, and Himalayan Tahr. In spring there is a rich variety of butterflies and flowers. Trails link the three regions, and as many can be visited as time and condition permit.
