The beginning of this trek is quite close to Kathmandu and progresses towards the north, starting from the area of Helambu between fields, forests, low mountains and Sherpas and Tamang populations, to cross the Laurebina-la pass and enter Gosainkund, with its set of small sacred lakes, and the Langtang valleys, very close to Tibet.
Helambu Langtang area
Right next to Tibet, north of Kathmandu, the Langtang Valley is a good option for those who want to avoid the much-crowded areas of Everest and Annapurna. It is rich in landscape, with rushing rivers, forests and pastures and high mountains around 7000 meters of altitude. There are a good number of different itinerary options, including or not the Gosainkund lakes or linking with Helambu.
This is an ideal small itinerary to do from Kathmandu. It runs through the typical low mountain landscape between forest, crops and farms, where people are busy with agricultural work rather than paying attention to the few hikers who walk these paths. A beautiful and interesting experience with the advantage of easy access.
