You can vary the trek to Langtang by returning to Kathmandu via the holy lakes of Gosainkund, which also makes a worthwhile seven-or eight-day trek in is own right. You could even make a short return trek from Dhunche direct to Gosainkund, althought the trail is quite steep. From Tharepati you can continue through Helambu to Kathmandu along one of three routes. The best way trek to Gosainkund is to visit Langtang first, swing south to Thulo Syabru and begin the hike to Gosainkund, This has the advantage of allowing you to acclimatize before you reach the higher elevations of Gosainkund.
Up to 20,000 Hindu pilgrims come to bathe in the Gosainkund lakes during the august full-moon festival of Jani Purnima. The lake is also sacred to Buddhists, who have lined the shore with hundred of cairns...
