The Langtang-Gosainkunda combined trek is a beautiful and varied journey within a hidden mountain valley and climbing up to a high alpine pass. Home to the shy red panda, the Langtang area is best known for its pristine forests of mixed conifer and rhododendron and high-elevation meadows of wild sheep, Tibetan-like culture and lovely mountain views.
The name "Langtang" comes from the story of the ancient Buddhist lama who followed his lost yak into the valley - "Lang" means "yak" and "Tang" means, "follow". The region mirrors the diverse culture of Nepal itself. Rising from the Langtang, the Gosainkund trek (also spelled as Gosainkunda and Gosain Kunda, is also the name for an alpine lake of spiritual significance to the local people. At a height of 4380m, the lake is one of 108 in this area of the Langtang National Park, with the trek over Laurebina Pass (4,610m), skirting its shoreline. This is a pristine and very scenic region of Nepal to visit.
Gosaikunda is an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in Nepal's Langtang National Park, at the elevation of 4,380 m (14,370 ft) with a surface of 13.8 ha (34 acres). Together with at least 15 lakes, the Gosaikunda Lake complex is 1,030 ha (4.0 sq mi) in size. The lake remains frozen for six months in winter October to June and melts and sips down to form the Trishuli River. This area encompasses 108 lakes from small to medium size.

This kind of trek doesn’t really require previous trekking and mountaineering experiences. It doesn’t require any technical experience, only that you are in good physical condition and be able to hike 4 – 6 hours over hilly terrain up to 3,500m of altitude with a light day pack.
If you have any previous experiences would be helpful but if you don’t have is also not an important matter of issue. This trek will introduce you to trekking in the Himalayas and also about the local cultures, traditions, and local people. Even if you are around the age of 65 years, you can be a candidate for this trek.

Dream Himalaya Adventures provided us the best mother / daughter trip that we could experience. We could not have chosen a better agency for our trek to Langtang and Helambu area. Dawa was very helpful from the first email contact. He did not only organize the trek but also the airport pick-up, city tour and all preparations needed with our guide Tendi. Tendi was the best guide that we could wish for. He was not only funny and entertaining and also gave us a glimpse into his culture and his life in Nepal as a professional mountaineer. He really cared about our health and well being during day and night which was very important for our mothers. We enjoyed the trip to the fullest and want to shout out our special thanks for Ram, the driver, and the porters Sanjep and Pasang, and of course Dawa and Tendi for making everything possible.

We have been trekking with Dream Himilaya Adventures since long and have utilised their services for the last 4 treks. This time for the Everest Marathon - 29.05.2022 we used their services from 16.05.2022 to 04.06.2022, they provided both of us support from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. Though Mr. Dawa Lama Sherpa was on a Everest Summit expeditiion, he made all the arrangements required for us sitting at EBC. Mr. Rajesh from Kathmandu Office was very helpful. As usual receiving us at Kathmandu Airport, taking us to Pashupathi Temple and the to Everest Marathon Event Organisers office to collect all necessary things from them. Flight from Kathmandu to Lukla, Porter Guide from Lukla to EBC through the route we requested for. Mr. Suresh,
We did the trek to EBC in March 2022 with Dream Himalaya Adventures. A trip like this will always have curveballs because of the environment and altitude - that's when you really appreciate people with brilliant local knowledge and the ability to sort thing out. Dawa and team were absolutely fantastic and I unreservedly recommend them to anyone.
This was my 3rd trip with Dream Himalaya Adventures – as before, everything was well organised and ran smoothly. They deliver a professional service, with a personal touch. Even if plans change, as they sometimes do in the mountains, Dawa and his team have the resources and connections to quickly adapt and make alternative arrangements, which is comforting to know when you are trekking or climbing in remote areas. I highly recommend Dream Himalaya Adventures – and thanks again to Dawa, Ten Di, Karma, Yeshi, Furi, Gyalje, Phurba, all the porters and the entire team at base camp for the fun trek, a safe & successful summit and a fantastic time at base camp - hope to see you again
Dream Himalaya Adventures gave us an excellent service for our expedition to the Thame Valley. Everything was well-organised, we were looked after, and would recommend the agency. Thanks Dawa and Sherku Thanks and hope all’s good with you and Sherku Tom Livingstone
Dream Himalaya is an awesome outfitter! The Guides, Porters, and Dawa are trustworthy and easy to talk to... It's these kind people that makes your trip hassle and worry free. Highly recommend!
The EBC trek is incredible and highly recommended with stunning scenery and good people. DHA's guides and porters are great and took very good care of us. If you are looking for a great trek in the Himalaya's then this one is for you!
Patrick & Geoff - Basecamp 2019 Dawa Sherpa and his team were exceptional in their care and aid of out Basecamp trek for 2019. It was an amazing experience not only to see and feel the mountains but also to speak to his crew and learn about the region and trekking/mountaineering in general. They were always ready to help whenever we needed. We will certainly be coming back to Nepal and the Himalayas again. Most definitely through Dream Himalaya Adventures. Patrick Nhim
Wow wow wow! Ok so the scenery was awesome - that’s a given! The food was nutritional and hot! Sleeping was easy because the body was ready for rest. But the team at Dream Himalaya Adventures could not have been better selected. Nothing was a problem. Anything was possible. If you wanted it, you got it! Their main aim is to get you to your destination and back safely and for you to enjoy the entire experience. If we weren’t eating enough, they encouraged us to fuel up. If we weren’t drinking enough “pani” (water), they stopped us for a drink break. If we walked too quickly (I’m amazed some of our team members could), they reminded us to walk “bistari bistari” (slowly slowly) to
I have recently returned from touring and trekking with Dream Himalayas Adventures team with Dawa and his Sherpas. The highlights of my trip was the stunning scenery on the trek and the friendly people of Nepal. It was definitely a life changing experience and i would love to do it again some day with my daughter. Dawa and his team were amazing i found them very organized, caring and friendly which impressed me.
We had a beautiful trip! From the very first contact with Dawa a few months before to the airport drop off, Dream Himalayan Advantures provided excellent service, answered questions quickly, and took wonderful care of our team. Their guides were so friendly and very competent in what they do. We had a big team of 10 people, but they were able to meet each person’s needs. Would definitely work with them again!
