The Langtang Gosainkunda Trek holiday is a breath-taking adventure in the Langtang valley to the spiritual Place of Lord Shiva.
The Langtang Gosainkunda Trek holiday is a breath-taking adventure in the Langtang valley. Also known as “the valley of Glaciers”, the Langtang valley is a cornucopia of natural treasures and Himalayan beauty. Moreover, the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek by the Himalaya Land Treks is also located comparatively nearer to Kathmandu Valley than other popular trekking destinations.
The pristine environment of the Langtang Valley is definitely out of this world. The Langtang Lirung towers over the valley and gives it a wonderful sense of enchantment. From verdant green pastures to emerald woodlands and turquoise mountain peaks and cerulean glaciers, the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek presents an adventure that is sure to stay in the minds of trekkers for years.
Similarly, the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek is also a great journey to get to know the ethnic Tamang people of the valley. Langtang is famous for the Kyanjin Gompa- a Buddhist monastery that is situated beneath the Langtang Lirung Mountain and also for the valley’s local cheese factory. Additionally, the trekking journey takes trekkers to the beautiful Gosainkunda lake- a holy pilgrimage site for the Hindu and Buddhist people who come to the lake at the event of Janai Purnima every year.
According to Hindu mythology, the Gosainkunda Lake was formed when Lord Shiva struck his trident in the mountain to drink from the gushing water to cool his throat after swallowing a poison that was threatening to destroy the world.
Likewise, the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek also includes the Langtang national Park- home to many endangered species of animals like the Red Panda and the Himalayan Thar and the Musk Deer. The beautiful forests of Langtang provide an emerald baldachin for trekkers to go through and there are chances of spotting the elusive animals in their natural habitat as well.
Correspondingly, the Langtang Valley is also home to many ethnic Tibetan Buddhists. As such, Tibetan Buddhism and its influence can be amply found throughout the valley. The unique traditions, art, and practices of Tibetan Buddhism are mystical and fascinating.
