We also pass by the local chhorten and stupas by the side of the village. Rhododendron forest and the local people in the jungle with their domestic animals for grazing will be interesting to see. With all the beauty and closeness with the White Mountains; we will walk up and down the green hills. Yuri danda (ridge in english) and mere danda (nonstop 3 hours uphill walk) are today's challenge. Trekking in the nature will be nice and joyful for most of the walk but when we meet local porters and Sherpa carrying weight double of themselves and walking faster than us will tease us. But the teasing will ease the walk; life of people here in the mountain is inspiring. This is what you will learn from Helambu Gosainkunda Trekking. Before getting to the village of Tharepati we will walk through the pine forest. Tharepati village will give a best taste of simple life and real village.
Day 06: From Tharepati to Phedi (3780m); Trekking for 7 hours approx
From the village to the base camp of Laurebinayak pass is interesting with change in the landscape and scenery. Pine and juniper forest at the beginning of the trekking will lead to no tree line very soon. Walk is entertaining and strenuous. This section of Helambu Gosainkunda trekking 14 days can be life long memory and a pain in ass.

View of the 360 degree panorama is mesmerizing and you will love the thin air at that altitude. Scene of the mountain, small hills near you, tiny village seen in distance makes your trekking a lifelong memory. This trekking pass is not hard like Larkey pass of Manaslu or world famous Pass of Nepal Thorong la. You will be walking in the line of 4000 meters above the sea level, thus your excitement will be cherished till the top.
Day 08: Explore, rest and climb day if you want to climb Surya Peak and back to Gosiankunda; half day
Apart from the Laurebinayak pass, Gosainkunda lake trekking is also a famous destination of Helambu region. When we talk about Langtang or Helambu Nepal, Gosainkunda Lake trek comes to every one’s mind. So we will take a peaceful rest on the lap of Langtang Mountain. Peace by the side of the lake is nice and memorable. If you are planning to do a short hike, it is possible to climb to the top of Surya peak. Trekking guide you let you know the pro and cons of hiking up the hill (looking at your physical condition). But if you hike up to Surya peak, your mind will be filled with more happiness and cheerful memories. From the top of the surya peak you can see mt Annapurna, Mt Ganesh, Mt Manaslu and many other minor mountains of the respective range. Surya peak trekking will be a best side trip from Gosainkunda village. Apart from the hike, if you love to stay still for the entire day, vibe of the Gosainkunda lake is pristine. The religious myth of the god shiva, his trident pricking the wall of hill to fill his thirst is interesting. As the story, good vibe of the lake surrounding is enough to spend your day. You can walk around the lake.

Gosainkunda to chandan bari is a trek back in the village. More of the simple life in the langtang side of the Himalaya will inspire your trekking; while doing Helambu Gosainkunda Trekking. You will get chance to compare the life of people in the helambu region to the life in Langtang. From one prospect to another, these two sides of the same country will look different. People on this side of Nepal are simpler in my prospective but as you will be there yourself, evaluate and taste the reality. Overnight at the local guest house of Chandanbari village.
Day 10: Trek down from Chandanbari to Dhunche(1960m); 6 hours
Mostly downhill walk across the village is an easy walk. The villages we pass today will look more developed than previous village walking as we are getting closer to the capital of District.
