The combine trek (Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu) treks offers the great diversity in both nature and culture. It is relatively not crowded area. The Langtang valley up to Kyanjin Gompa is inhabited by Tamang whose religious practices, language and dress are much more to those of Tibetans and we walk to the glacier at the foot of Langtang Peak. Though there are now many commercial lodges in Langtang village, in another section you can observe the distinct life style of the original inhabitants in Langtang village that might be interesting for you I think.
Due to the lack of education these people are very backward in civilization. The most part of the trail to Gosaikunda Lake is on the ridges of hiking hills offering spectacular views of Himalayan peaks. This rout connects from Langtang to Helambu. There are not local inhabitants on the rout to Gosaikunda till 2 days but when we inter to Helambu village we passes some beautiful forests and very interesting villages of Sherpas and Tamang. The Sherpa are quite distinct from the Sherpas of Solukhumbu (Everest region) both in language and customs. The people in Helambu where carefully exploited to a lower cast because of a Nepali king who was afraid they could give rebellion as they live all around the city regions. Probably to this result, they still live in backward civilization. The ranges of mountains that rise above us match the diversity of the people we meet. From low altitudes we have excellent views of mountains that include Langtang, the Annapurnas, Manaslu and even Everest on a clear day. This is a pleasant and exciting journey, a time to relax and become immersed in the beauty of the Himalayas.
