Langtang and Helambu are popular trekking routes in Nepal and they are located in central Nepal, north of Kathmandu. Himalayan Dream Team offers a multitude of 3 trekking destinations in one trip, all easily accessible without flights. The three major areas are Langtang, Gosainkund and Helambu, which can be combined in many different ways and we did make an ultimate tour in just 18 days.
Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. Langtang Lirung (7246m) dominates the valley to the north, Gang Chhenpo (6388m) and Naya Kangri (5846m) lie to the south; and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) protect the east end of the valley. The area was designated Nepal’s first Himalayan national park in1971. Helambu is the region of highland villages in Nepal. The trip follows the trail to Gosaikunda, an unique alpine freshwater lake in Nepal’s Langtang National Park, located at an altitude of 4,380 m (14,370 ft) with a surface of 13.8 ha (34 acres).
