Gosaikunda Lake Trek for families traverse via Lauribinayak-La Pass, 10 Days

Tage: 10 / Schwierigkeit: 3 of 5 (Moderat bis anstrengend)

Beautiful lakes, majestic mountains, rivers, and deep forests, this is what your child will enjoy during the Gosainkunda Lake Trek. Lying in the Langtang Region, Gosainkunda is certainly the epitome of natural magnificence while also being one of the holy lakes in Nepal, which is visited by throngs of pilgrims every year. An ecstatic view of the turquoise lake surrounded by the snow-capped mountains will certainly make your child a storyteller. 

The Gosainkunda Trek via Lauribinayak Pass is a beautiful journey in the foothills of the gorgeous Langtang Himal range. The cheerful "Namaste" from every passer-by will be common as you trek. The frequent sights of yaks, mules, donkeys, chicken, and horses tell your children that animals are not just found in the zoo. Also, the colorful rhododendron forests blooming with pink, red, and white flowers will certainly brighten up your child's day. As the spectacular views of the Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, and Dorje Lakpa ranges lead us to the tranquil Gosainkunda, your family can relish the pristine beauty of the Himalayan foothills. Hindu mythology says that after Lord Shiva drank poison to save the Universe, he struck his trident to release a burst of water known as Trishul Dhara, which is the source of Gosainkunda. This trek thusly allows your children to get an insight of the Nepalese folklore and culture. Apart from this, the trail takes you across Lauribinayak Pass (4610m) and past several Tamang and Hyolmo villages, allowing your children to make friends with the locals. The people, already hospitable, will be more warm and welcoming to your children hence providing you an opportunity to learn about their way of life. Throughout the trek, you can carve in many memories which you can cherish for a lifetime.

  • Gosaikund Lake and Helambu Lodge Trek including Chitwan Tour 29 Days, 9 Nov to 7 Dec 2013

Lieber Stephan
Das Trekking in Langtang und zu den Gosainkund-Seen habe ich sehr genossen. Zum einen wegen der wunderschönen Landschaft mit den schneebedeckten Gipfeln, dem tosenden Langtang Khola, den freundlichen Menschen, meinen beiden Begleitern Nima und Tsering, aber auch dank der umsichtigen Planung und Durchführung durch eure Agentur. Alles hat von Anfang an bestens geklappt. Auf den angekündigten Generalstreik bei den Wahlen vom 19. November habt ihr alle sehr professionell und rasch reagiert und das Trekking um zwei Tage vorverlegt. Dadurch hatte ich auch das Glück, in Thulo Shyaphru dem Vollmondfest beiwohnen zu können, ein sehr eindrückliches Erlebnis vor einmaliger Bergkulisse.
Nach der rund sieben-stündigen Fahrt mit dem Jeep von Kathmandu wurde ich in Shyaphru Besi von Nima, meinem Guide, freundlich empfangen. Wie Tsering, der ein paar Stunden später eintraf, ist er gleichentags von Langtang das Tal hinuntergelaufen. Die beiden haben mich während des ganzen Trekking freundlich umsorgt. Bei jeder Ankunft in einer Lodge oder bei den Pausen wurde mir gleich eine Tasse heissen Tees organisiert, für das Essen gesorgt etc.. Alles wurde mir praktisch von den Augen abgelesen und auch kleine Anpassungen beim Tagesprogramm wurden umgehend umgesetzt. Auf meine Wünsche wurde immer eingegangen, immer mit einem freundlichen Lächeln.
Sowohl Nima als auch Tsering haben mir viel über ihr Tal und ihr hartes Leben auf über 3500 m.ü.M. erzählt. Für mich war es manchmal nur schwer vorstellbar, wie diese genügsamen Menschen die harten Winter überleben können.
Das Konzept von Swiss Family Treks, die Guides und Träger immer aus der Trekking-Gegend zu rekrutieren, hat mich voll überzeugt. Sie kannten Guides, Träger, Frauen und Kinder, die wir unterwegs und in ihrem Dorf trafen. Als Hobby-Fotograf boten sich mir dadurch viele Gelegenheiten, Portraits zu fotografieren. Sehr eindrücklich für mich war auch die Begegnung mit ihren Familien, als ich zum Essen in ihre Häuser eingeladen wurde. Das Dal Bhat am Abend und das Müesli mit echter Yakmilch zum Frühstück schmeckten in ihren Häusern einfach köstlich. Die Erlebnisse und Eindrücke auf einem Trekking sind dadurch noch viel intensiver, als wenn man nur vorbei läuft. Sehr gerührt war ich von ihren Geschenken zum Abschied: die selbst gestrickte Kappe, der selbst gewobene Schal und die Kette mit dem schönen Stein.
Ich danke euch allen sehr für die Organisation und Unterstützung bei meinem Trekking und wünsche euch weiterhin alles Gute mit der Swiss Family Treks & Expedition.
Liebe Grüsse
Giovanni aus der Schweiz
