From its lofty heights, we find ancient Buddhist monasteries and Hindu temples that celebrate this unique spirituality. The Gosainkunda & Helambu Trek takes you to the sacred lakes of the Gosainkunda. Here deep in the Langtang Mountain Range are 108 sacred and holy lakes.

The number “108” is a sacred number in both Buddhism and Hinduism, and these lakes are definitely inspiring to behold. Their beautiful, smooth blue surfaces perfectly reflect the snowcapped peaks in their mirror-like surfaces. The largest peak in the region is Mt. Langtang Lirung (elev. 7,200 m/23,622 ft.). It juts magnificently upward into the dark blue Himalayan skies; its snowcapped summit is in perfect contrast to the sky above. Around it is other snowcapped peaks that form a perfect picture of the incredible mountains.
