Best Season for the Gosaikunda trek

For a walk to the Langtang Gosaikunda trek, the weather is the most important thing to remember. Since the weather in this area is so erratic. We suggest scheduling your Langtang and Gosaikunda trek at the appropriate time.

Autumn Mid, September Oct, October, and November are the best.

These are the best times for the Gosaikunda trek. The monsoon is stopping now, creating the ideal terrain for hiking. Since the sky is clear and the mountains are visible now. Most hikers journey during these months, between mid-September and the end of November. We recommend this period for the Gosaikunda trek. These months also coincide with Dashain and Tihar festivals.

Spring (March to April)

It is the best time to visit the Gosaikunda trek. It is a moderate to difficult level of trekking with beautiful mountain scenery. You may see breathtaking views of Mount Everest and the surrounding mountains. The weather has been fantastic since mid-March, when temperatures began to rise. Many trekkers prefer to travel to the Gokyo Lake trek region. The lush, thick bamboo rhododendron blooms are great to see. The bird birch woods provide beauty and add new dimensions to the Gosaikunda trek.

Winter (November through December)

This is the coldest time here. The region around the Gosaikunda trek has its first snowfalls. It becomes more challenging to walk through. But, considering the wonderful days in November, you may go hiking. The mountains are beautiful when the skies are clear. But the temperatures drop in earnest when December begins.

The evenings may be chilly, with lows of -10 degrees Celsius. The hiking areas are often cold in January and February because of snowfall. As the temperature drops, a lot of snow falls in the mountains.

The day will be pleasant and straightforward with high temperatures. The night will be freezing. Yet, the Trek may be challenging. You will enjoy breathtaking vistas of mountains and hills covered in snow.

Summer May to June

May to June, before the monsoon, is an excellent time for hiking. In Nepal, the rainy Season starts in mid-June and lasts until mid-August. The walk is more fun in the spring and summer.

July through August is the peak of the rainy Season. The paths will see clouds, likely blocking your view of the mountains. Even so, there is a good chance that the
tracks will get a little slippery. This is not a good time for the Gosakunda trek areas. It would help if you took caution since the monsoon season might result in leech bites.

Most Asked Questions by Travellers

The weather in Gosainkunda is primarily humid and cold and unpredictable as it can change quickly. It is always advisable to bring warm clothes, good hiking boots, a water bottle, a walking stick, sunglasses, and raincoats to visit there. The better weather we get there is from mid-September to October and March to May.

One can complete the Gosaikunda trek without a guide and porters. However, we recommend hiring one or two guides and porters for the Langtang Trail. Always go with a company with guides knowledgeable about the entire Gosaikunda region, not just Gosaikunda trekking, and who are adequately insured.

Since the beginning of the Gosaikunda area trek, having a local guide has been much more advantageous since it helps them support and promote their livelihood.

English-speaking local guides will accompany you throughout the entire walk. Although they won’t be able to carry your bags, they can assist you by answering your questions and providing local knowledge as you travel. It is usually advised to travel with a guide. You could get AMS if you’re going at a high altitude, but your guide will be helpful if you don’t know how to trek.

During the journey, porters will carry your belongings for you. They don’t know much English, so your questions won’t be understood. You may move around without restriction if you accompany your porter, who will help you carry your stuff.

Although it may cost you a bit extra, it is worthwhile to pay for them. You will receive proper guidance and may walk about freely while taking in the local scenery without carrying any excess weight.

The cost of your trekking depends on your expenses, such as how you travel, what you bring with you, and what you eat while on your trek. The Langtang Gosaikunda Trekking Cost ranges from $800 to 1100 USD for a 6- to 10-day trek.
