about this route

This lovely trekking route lies north of Kathmandu. The east-west Langtang Valley is set between the high border ranges and a lower range to the south – which includes the Gosainkund lakes. This area is less crowded than the most popular routes, yet offers you broad Himalayan panoramas.

The trekking starts at Dhunche by setting off through rhododendron and oak forest landscapes. When we climb to Shin Gompa you'll have the opportunity to explore the Buddhist culture of this region. The main highlight of this trekking route is the stunning Gosainkund lakes, sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists.

On my very first day in Nepal, back in 2013, I met Govinda and we've been best (!) friends ever since. Govinda and I have been on quite some treks in Nepal together and traveled in Sir Lanka and Europe as well. And now we also work together with by Mountain People. Back in the Netherlands I take care of the website and I am always planning a next stay in Nepal. But hey ... what are you up to? :)
