Langtang Gosaikunda Lake Trek

Get set for a mesmerizing journey to Langtang valley and Gosaikunda lake with Langtang Gosaikunda Lake Trek! You will be rewarded with some impressive views of mountains and mountain lakes! Nepal Intrepid Treks offers you an opportunity to dive into the glory of wild landscape, mountains and lakes in one of the most accessible trekking regions of Nepal. Take a ride from the busy streets of Kathmandu to a less travelled but charming route to Langtang region. A drive from Kathmandu will drop you at Syabrubensi which is the starting point of your trekking journey. As you walk through the Sherpa village, you enter Langtang National Park and pass some dense rhododendron, oak and bamboo forests on the trail. Walking amidst the national park is an opportunity to encounter some unique species of floras and faunas. As you walk through the forest, you may be a lucky one to get a glimpse of Red panda, wild boar, ghoral, langur monkey or leopard.

As you open up to the valley, you will come across the wild landscape that is pretty much similar to that of Tibetan highlands and as you enter the valley, you will find yourself amidst the snow capped vistas like Langtang Lirung, Langshisha Ri, Pemthang Ri, Kangchempo, Dorje Lakpa and Tillman’s fluted peak. The Langtang valley is mostly inhabited by Buddhist people whose resemblance can be seen in the chortens, mani stones and prayer flags on the way. You can visit – Kyangin gompa which is a popular monastery in Langtang valley. Likewise, chesses factory is another major attraction of Langtang valley that is not to be missed.

Langtang Gosaikunda Lake Trek further takes you to the sacred lakes of Gosaikunda. The lake holds a high religious value as per Hindu and Buddhist mythology. Many pilgrims around the globe visit to this lake yearly on the full moon day of August owning to its religious value. As per Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva had swallowed the poison that had been produced while the Gods were trying to make an antidote for life. After swallowing the poison, Lord Shiva could not bear the burning sensation and hence he hit the mountain with his trident and created a spring from where he drank the water. Gosaikunda Lake is a result of the spring from the mountain. It is believed that anyone who takes a dip in to the lake will get rid of pain from life.
So, are you delighted to opt for Langtang Gosaikunda lake trek? It is a beautiful combo of mountain and mountain lakes that will provide you an opportunity to walk through the dense forests, springs, valleys, wild landscape and jovial villages with views of mountains and glaciers on sight.

April/May 2019 16-Day Trek to EBC

Had an extraordinary trek with Nepal Intrepid to Everest Base Camp. I got sick from the food in Kathmandu, and by day 4 I was too dehydrated and weak to continue. One of the guides stayed with me as my group continued so that I can rest. We eventually caught up with the group and made it to EBC! Such excellent and professional guides and porters!

You Need This Team To Make It To The Top. 100% Mera Peak Summit Success Rate. Looked After From Day 1.

I owe our success in reaching the Mera Peak summit safely to our amazing guide Lal and his amazing team of porters! We were a team of four women and we had a 100% summit success rate.

Lal went above and beyond from Day 1 when I missed my connecting flight to Kathmandu from Guangzhou due to bad weather in China. I finally arrived in Kathmandu late at night, tired and stressed out about my bags since it did not make my flight. As soon as Lal found out that I made it to Kathmandu, he made it to the airport in a flash, waiting to pick me up and take me to the hotel with a warm smile and a big welcome - and this was really late at night! When my airline failed to get my bag in time for the trek, Lal organised my luggage to arrive in Lukla before I even made it to Lukla! My luggage had all my gear and summit clothing, without this luggage I could not have started the trek. It was a huge relief seeing my luggage and it was all thanks to Lal and his efficiency for getting my luggage in time. There would have been no other way.

This was my first time doing a multi day trek, let alone climbing a mountain, I was nervous but Lal made sure I enjoyed the trek and most importantly I was safe. Lal and his team made sure it was their priority to make sure we were well prepared, safe, looked after and most importantly we all make it to the top. Little things like telling us to slow down while ascending to make sure we don't get altitude sickness, while other groups sped in front of us and did not make the summit because they were sick, making sure we were all well fed so that we had all the energy to endure the full 13 days, giving us water when we ran out of our own and believing in us all added up to our successful summit! His porter team Bupendra and Tula Raj all took turns to lead the party and helped us to carry our gear.

Every morning we would wake up and see their smiley faces ready to start the day trekking, while they were getting ready to carry our 50kg bags in tough terrain. Without hesitation, Lal and his porter team always offered a hand when us ladies weren't comfortable going down a steep hill and believe me the passes were insane! They made the trip much more enjoyable and memorable as we all had our funny and scary moments together.

Summit day was unbelievably the hardest and craziest day of my life! One to remember for the rest of our lives but we couldn't have made it without his team, his positivity and his patience. It took us 6 hours to reach the summit and Lal was with us every step of the way - feeding us snacks, opening our water bottles so that we can drink, carried our back packs to putting our polarised sunglasses on our faces to protect us from the sun. His team absolutely went above and beyond! Making the summit was an epic experience and to do it with a team that we grew closely with, who supported and believed in us made the experience even more special.

Lal and his team were always looking out for us and I could not be more grateful. We were constantly surrounded by positive attitude the whole way up and the whole way down, even after our summit day.

Although, we successfully summited and made it to Lukla, Lal did not stop working. Leaving Lukla was such a mess and super stressful as I had an international flight to make. Lal was always alert, always on call to see if there was an available seat for me on any of the outgoing flights.

Lal is honest and professional and I would definitely choose Nepal Intrepid Treks again. What an incredible ascent. I will never forget this trip. Until then my friend!

Mera Peak 14 day hike & 100% Success Rate!

This was my first trip to Nepal, and thanks to Lal and his amazing team, climbing Mera Peak was an awesome experience. Our group of 4 had a 100% success rate, when a lot of other travelers we met along the way, did not make it to the top.

Nothing was a problem for Lal, we had lost luggage and bad weather delays – which meant he had to reschedule accommodation/flights several times for us. He was so gracious, professional, and incredibly helpful every step of the way (literally!). Both him and our two incredible porters, really made our trip, going above and beyond on so many occasions.

Summit day was tough, but the support of Lal and his team – helped us all get through and make it to the top!

Lal always made us feel safe, supported and that nothing was a problem – and there was always a smile on his face. I would absolutely recommend trekking with Nepal Intrepid Treks and Expeditions, I’m so grateful for the experience, and can’t wait for my next adventure with Lal and his team.

Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp 19days

Unreal experience! I opted for the longer trek as I wanted to see as much as possible in the time I had. I'm so glad I did.
My wonderful Guide Prem Karki and my assistant guide Lukpa were sensational! We laughed so much on the trek, with these 2 guiding us there was never a dull moment. Our success in reaching the Lakes and Everest Base Camp are purely down to their hard work and dedication. Plus I was lucky enough to meet another 6 legends who also opted for this unreal trek. We are now all the best of mates.
The trekking was hard at times and and some days were super easy. We had rain, snow, sunshine and everything in between. Each day we witnessed another insanely beautiful mountain and watched the landscape change the higher we went.
The Gokyo Lakes were stunning, I'm so glad we opted for this trek. The pictures attached are unfiltered!
Everest Base Camp was great! Such an amazing feeling to finally get there. We just sat and took it all in. Photos don't do it justice.
All the villages and places we stayed along the way were awesome! These tiny lodges and tea houses in the middle of the mountains were so cosy and the food is delicious. We met quite a few Sherpas who had summited Everest and we spoke to them at length about their expedition. Great bed time stories :)
Do yourself a favour and get on board this trek, you wont regret it!

Kamal, Tilak and Prince were our guide. They have done an excellent job in ensuring we had everything we needed - water, wifi, food and so on. They explained Nepalese culture and identified the peaks for us as we were asking for the names every day, it is one of the most precious thing about having the locals with us. The tour was a huge success and thank you guys and team for making it happen, it would not be the same without you. I had really enjoyed every moment on the trek. Highly recommend the agent and guides to anyone considering paying a visit to the beautiful Himalayas.

Wonderful experience

It was wonderful experience in my life. Our guide Kamal is professional, patient, and kindly. In this trekking journey still had some situation from uncontrollable mother nature. But this team also can control and change it perfectly. If you will come to Nepal to explore, don't miss Nepal Intrepid Treks and Expeditions!

Unforgettable solo trek in Nepal

I did the Mardi Himal trek with Nepal Intrepid Treks as a solo hiker in November 2019. I learned that I would be traveling in the region on business only a few weeks in advance, and after some research I reached out to Lal for help in customizing an add-on personal trip that worked for my tight schedule and my desire to do a beautiful and challenging trek in the iconic Annapurna region. Mardi Himal was the perfect trek:
- It offered epic views of Annapurna South and Fishtail nearly the entire time, getting closer and closer each day until High Camp and Base Camp when you’re right in between them and it feels like you can reach out and touch them!
- It offered a good balance of physically demanding sections and relatively easy sections, as well as spots to catch your breath, have some masala tea and take in the scenery.
- It offered great elevation gains, so that you can experience firsthand the way the environment, weather, and level of exertion changes as you climb higher and higher.
- The trekking camps were comfortable and the meals were very good. The people who ran the camps as well as the other guides and trekkers were lovely.

Lal put together my entire itinerary, including a couple nights in nice hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara, and a yoga class at a beautiful retreat outside Pokhara. He ensured that every detail was covered during my stay, and he was in touch throughout to make sure everything was going smoothly. As an experienced hiker and marathon runner we were able to shorten the trek to 5 days by combining some days for greater distance each day; this was great for me both for the level of difficulty I was seeking as well as my tight schedule. My guide Nisan and my porter Prabin were skilled, knowledgeable, professional, extremely helpful and attentive, and fun to be around (not to mention they were great sports about the fast pace).

I’m beyond thrilled with the experience and the service level of Nepal Intrepid Treks. I will definitely come back for a longer trek, and I recommend them to anyone seeking an unforgettable experience in the Himalayas. Thank you Lal, Nisan, Prabin, and the entire Intrepid team for being excellent guides in every sense of the word, going above and beyond to make my unique solo trip a success and a truly life-changing experience.
