Patan - Langtang - Gosainkund - Helambu
(September 2002)
North of Kathmandu, near Tibet, lies the Langtang Valley and National Park, surrounded by summits like Langtang Lirung and Kangchenpo. South of this place is Gosainkund with its holy lakes, the Laurebina La pass and the hills of Helambu, with views on almost the whole himalaya range.
