Mount Langtang and Helambu Gosaikund Trek is easily accessible from Kathmandu. Each area in itself is a good choice for those with limited time. It offers many features that range from culture to adventure. In a week to ten days, any one can visit one of these areas by crossing high mountain passes. A three-week trip could cover all the three areas. The Himalayan views overall are not quite as spectacular as in the Annapurna or Khumbu region, but they remain unforgettably beautiful plus the trails are less crowded and the people are friendly and interesting. TheHelambhu-Gosainkunda trek takes one to Gosainkunda Lake - a sacred site for devotees of Hindu God Shiva. It is famous for both trekking and pilgrimage.
