The Langtang Gosainkunda Chisapani Trek is a popular trekking destination in Nepal that takes hikers through the Langtang National Park and the Gosainkunda Lake region, which is located in the Rasuwa district, north of Kathmandu. The trek typically takes 8-12 days to complete, depending on the pace of the group and the itinerary. The trek starts and ends in the town of Syabrubesi, and the route passes through the Langtang National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The trek takes hikers through a variety of landscapes, including subtropical forests, high-altitude deserts, and glacial valleys. Along the way, hikers will have the opportunity to experience the local Tamang culture and way of life. The trek passes through many small villages and stops at local teahouses for accommodation and meals.
One of the highlights of the trek is the visit to the Langtang Valley, which offers panoramic views of the surrounding peaks, including Langtang Lirung, Langshisha Ri, and other peaks.
