Overview of Langtang Gosainkunda Chisopani Trek
Langtang has all the features and attractions that any world class trekking trail commands. But what makes it so different and unique is that thankfully it is one of the least explored and visited trekking areas in Nepal. It has become famous ever since the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as ‘the most beautiful valley in the world’.
Langtang valley is also known as the ”treasure house” of Alpine plants and is one of true wild outback of Nepal. The whole valley is carpeted with an array of beautiful flowers during the summer, a specter that should never be missed. The deep gorges of Bhote Koshi and Langtang Khola are thickly forested with rhododendron, oak, maple, and alder. Larch, a rare deciduous conifer, is also found in the forests of lower Langtang Valley. The stretch of forest around GhodaTabela in the lower Langtang valley and below Gosainkunda is inhabited by the Red panda, a rare and threatened animal that is on the list of endangered species. Besides the Red panda, the forests are inhabited by varied wildlife: wild boar, Himalayan black bear, ghoral, Grey langur monkey, and leopard are some of the animals found here. In the higher altitudes reside the Himalayan thahr, musk deer, and the beautiful, elusive cat, the Snow leopard. Langtang is best explored on foot. There are many possible trails to choose from depending on the time at hand and your interests. The original starting point for the Langtang trek used to be Dhunche, the main trading post of the area, but with the motor road reaching Shyabrubesi which is only a day’s drive from Kathmandu, treks today begin here.
One of the most important features of the Lantang region is its abundant snow glaciers. It is one of the richest regions in Nepal for glaciers, as it is home to as many as 70 glacier basins. These glaciers are integral part of the Langtang Himalayan ranges. Further, the trekking trails offer up-close and personal views of high peaks such as Shisapangma and Langtang. Langtang Treks are designed for various duration and season. Trekking ranges from 4-5 days to a maximum of 15-20 days.
