Kathmandu Valley is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal with a rich artistic and cultural heritage. Kathmandu has been one of the popular destinations for international tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The valley offers a wonderful mix of Hinduism and Buddhism. Right after having breakfast we are off to visit one of the greatest Hindu temples- Pashupatinath, two famous Buddhist Temples- the Boudhanath Stupa and Swayambhunath Stupa with covering Kathmandu Durbar square. Overnight in Kathmandu.
After breakfast we drive to Dhunche which is 117 km far from Kathmandu. The drive takes approximately 8 hours to reach through Pasang Lhamu Highway. Moving to our destination, we pass through several locations like Kakani (best known for panoramic view of great Himalayas of Nepal, hills and Kathmandu city itself), Trishuli Bazaar. The route will be accompanied by magnificent views of mountains such as Annapurna, Langtang, Gaurishankar, Ganesh and Manaslu etc. and an opportunity to observe local villages, their people and lifestyle. Overnight at lodge in Dhunche.
En route trail to Sing Gompa, we climb up and down through forests of Oaks, Firs and Rhododendrons and a river. The trail continues across the head of a second valley, Sing Gompa, which is the main attraction at Chandan Bari. Sing Gompa has several hotels and a small cheese factory. Overnight in Sing Gompa.
From Sing Gompa we have to climb a ridge to get into the main Gosainkunda trail. As the trail ascends, outstanding views across Langtang valley to Langtang Lirung and Himalchuli, Ganesh Himal and Manaslu can be observed. Eventually the trail descends from the ridge to the three lakes: Saraswati Kund, Bhairab Kund and Gosainkunda. Gosainkunda (Holy Shiva’s lake) is particularly sacred place of pilgrimage. Lots of religious devotees come to this place in summer (especially in the day of JanaiPurnima, which is the one of the popular festival of Hindus). According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva himself created this high altitude lake. Overnight at lodge in Gosaikunda.
We spend the entire day exploring the lake. The lake is located at an altitude of 4,460m from the sea level and with a conserved area of four-square miles. Many Hindus participate in this huge festival called Janai Purnima that takes place in summer. There is a black rock in the middle of the lake and it is said to be the head of lord Shiva. Nearby Gosainkunda, there are other two lakes – Bhairab Kunda, Saraswati Kund and Surya Kunda.Overnight at lodge in Gosaikunda.
We enter to the Helambu region which is renowned for its rich Sherpa culture and traditions. We walk uphill a little bit through amazing Suryakunda from where what we see is just a blue Sky. We also pass several lakes en route and the view from Lauribinayak pass is breathtaking. We make ascend for two and half-hours to get to top and again we will step down to Phedi for lunch. Another short ascend will take us to the final destination of the day, Thadepati. Overnight at lodge in Thadepati.
From Tharepati there are two different trails, one that leads to Melamchi Bazaar and the other that leads to Kutumsang. Following the second route we walk through the jungles to Kutumsang. We trek down to Mangengoth where we have a lunch and we make steep descent to Kutumsang. Overnight at lodge in Kutumsang.
Leaving Kutumsang we leave for Chisapani which is also the famous spot for sunrise and sunset. For a last decade Chisapani has been a popular domestic tourism destination for a short hike near Kathmandu City. A walk for three hours through forests, beautiful hills and a Tamang village take us to our destination. Overnight at lodge in Chisapani.
