These mountains range from 5000 meters to 7000 meters fulfill your desires in a way you have thought. Standing beautifully in the lap of the Himalayas, they inspire you to click the button of your camera. As you leave them behind by walking on an uphill trail and a downhill trail, you will enjoy the remaining itinerary in the same way as you have enjoyed the previous part.

On-going trekking trail that you are going to follow, heads off to show you another highlight, for example, the Gosainkunda, a mythological lake, which has impressed thousands of trekkers who want to know the fight that took place in sea between Hindu gods and Hindu demons, who wanted to drink an immortal drink thousands of years ago, far from Langtang Valley.

When it comes to beautiful mountain lakes, you will see it surrounded by snow-capped mountains, which make Gosainkunda as beautiful as a clear blue sky, but the lakes freeze when the weather of Langtang becomes extremely cold in the winter. The height of the Gosainkunda Lake is 4,320 m. Apart from Gosainkunda, Langtang also has Bhairavkunda, another highlight, another lake, and another place to visit.

The long trekking trail of Langtang Gosainkunda Helambu Trek, which is difficult in nature, gives you a relief when it takes you to the midst of rhododendron forest as well as near the waterfalls. Ahead, the trekking trail that you are going to follow becomes easy when it reaches Helambu, the village, which shows you the magnificent view of sunrise and sunset, and the impressive view of mountains if its weather is fine and sunny. Culturally, this Helambu village is famous for the Buddhist study center, as well as it is famous for delicious apples.

Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs) is the local currency. (1 USD = ~ Rs.100 NPR). We can exchange most of the foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Small amounts of cash can also be exchanged at the hotel. The ongoing rate of exchange is visibly displayed. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export, and use of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupee note in Nepal. You should ensure that you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may also be fined. Despite having security advantage of traveler’ cheque, we prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and high rate of commission at the banks. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu and Thamel itself. There are quite several ATMs that are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee if you are using your foreign card. If you use the money exchange facility at banks and financial institutions the service fee charge imposed is about four percent or more depending upon the bank.  Please note that most of the established banks in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.
