The three major areas you will be explore are Langtang, Gosainkunda (a holy lake at 4300m) and Chisapani. Gosainkunda is a sacred lake, which is very important for both Hindus and Buddhists.

Trek from Tharepati - Chisapani - Sundarijal is very famous for its natural beauty and wonderful climate with the superb views of the magnificent snow-covered mountains. The area covers typical highland Sherpa villages along with beautiful Rhododendron forests.
