Trekking on any destination can be a fascinating experience but if you chose a destination that has all you crave for in terms of adventure and thrill, then your journey is surely going to be joy ride. One of the most exciting ways of enjoying the raw magnificence of nature in its true form, trekking allows a person to get totally lost in the journey and then rediscover a new soul. My treks have been so fun that I keep on going back to attempt more exciting trails. The travel bug did bit me hard and since the first trekking journey, I have never looked back and though twice, I just do it. Now wherever you belong, you certainly cannot deny fact that Nepal has the truest trekking trails lined all over the country. No matter which route you chose, the alluring views will never be compromised and each time you get to witness something unique and extremely bewildering. My latest journey in the Langtang Valley towards Gosaikunda Lake in Nepal was certainly a very enjoyable one. Though I have covered some other trekking destinations in Nepal, but this one of the best moderately difficult rated trek in the country. The journey was crafted with sheer brilliance glimpses of the distant peaks, thrilling trails, forests, and some pretty local villages. Langtang can never be ignored and the monasteries I visited along the journey were captivating in every aspect. A ride of a lifetime, the Langtang Valley takes you to the most serene and highly religious Gosaikunda Lake through some small and pretty villages and a daunting trail. The experience was a savoring one that I cherish till date .
Being the third most traveled trekking region in Nepal, Langtang qualifies into the most enchanting runaway to walk through in case you wish to see the best of water bodies as well as the pious Himalayas. Langtang was badly destroyed due to the earthquake which hit Nepal in the year 2015. You can still find Debris but that has nothing to do with the trekking. The fighting spirit of people and the government had kept alive the trekking spirit of this valley. Here is how I traveled to this beautiful valley and what all I saw on the trip which enchants me even after two years of when I trekked there.
The Itinerary includes:
As and when you will step on the land of Kathmandu, your trip will start from there. By bus, you will be taken to the oldest debrial village of Syabru. In Syabru, you may find people who can ask for your traveling documents especially at the checkpoint on Dunche. After reaching Syabru, you may proceed on to Kangzum, which is nearly 2228m via Sherpogan.
It took me nearly 7 hours to reach my destination at Sherpogan. On the next day you may proceed on the trip to Rimche and from there after sightseeing Lima and hotel woodland (rather the debris) of the same we proceeded further. From there we moved for nearly 12 hours and traveled Mundu, Kyanjin Gompa and then returned back after sight-seeing the serene looking Tibetan Stupa.
Since Nepal share its borders with India and Tibet, you will find a lot of glimpse of both the country’s culture in Nepal. The only guest house which you will love to say while trekking on this route is the Tibetan Guesthouse which had been properly kept well and the guests enjoy the coziness of the owners. From there we reached back to Syabru village and wrapped our journey in a beautiful time. Though we were not lucky enough to see some wonderful sites thoroughly, we managed to make the most of it which could be seen on the treks which are full of debris and not that maintained.
What else can you expect on the Trek?
•You can definitely find the only ATM while on the trek in Syabrubesi. If you missed this chance, then you have to wait for either when you return back or when you travel back to Kathmandu.
•Don’t expect your internet or WI-FI to be in working condition as the life is affected even today… by the aftereffects of the earthquake which happened in the year 2015.
