Langtang, Gosainkund & Helambu
*UPDATE We are leaving on 27th October (Monday) to Saybru Besi by bus from Kathmandu. There’s around 4-5 people keen to start on that day so it’s all confirmed now.
Jump in if you’re looking to do a relatively easy 10-14 days trek in the Langtang region starting late October (around 25th to 30th Oct). I am looking to combine Gosainkunda & Helambu – might as well since we’re on the trek – and will be staying in teahouses all the way. No porter or guide needed and you’ll have sporadic entertainment, intentional and unintentional, by none other than yours truly.
Rough Itinerary (i’m okay with additional side trips):
Day 01: Drive from Kathmandu to Saybru Besi (1460m.) which takes about nine hours.
Day 02: Trek from Syabru Besi to Lama Hotel (2410m.) and it takes about six hours.

Day 06: Trek from Kyangjin to Lama Hotel (2410m.) which takes about five hours
Day 07: Trek from Lama Hotel to Thulo Syabru (2130m.) and it takes about six and half hours.
Day 08: Trek from Thulo Syabru to Sing Gompa (3330m) which takes about five hours.
Day 09: Trek from Sing Gompa to Gosaikund (4380m.) and it takes about five hours.

I’m a slow, steady trekker, and usually start trekking between 730-830 AM till 3-5 PM. Pretty much easy going as i have the time to spareReply
