The trek reaches Trishuli Bazaar, crisscrossing the bed of the Trishuli River, and then past Syabrubesi before turning east into the Langtang valley and eventually to a high plateau where sacred lake Gosainkunda is located. Nothing can beat the thrill of the Langtang-Gosaikunda Trek when it comes to an adventure with a combination of wilderness experience and religious pilgrimage.
