Lamjung Himal trek is the outstanding nontouristic trekking trail in the north of Gorkha district and south of the Manaslu range. This marvelous Lamjung trek offers spectacular views of the north-central Himalaya of Nepal. This less crowded trail traverses the variety of terrain from low land villages and terraced fields up to the largest Gurung villages of Nepal.
When you encounter with the local friendly people there, you can have a great interaction with them. Further doing conservation with these locals you can get lots of information about their unique culture and lifestyle. The charming villages along the trail provide trekkers the unique insight into the rustic lifestyle of Nepalese people.
Besides exploring the enriching Gurung culture, you can also enjoy the magnificent view of Annapurna range, Mt Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Lamjung Himal. Walking through the trails of Lamjung Himal Trek you can get a glimpse of varieties of flora and fauna, mountain ranges, and unique landscapes. Moreover, the wonderful trek to the Lamjung Himal fulfills the trekker’s dreams of birdwatching while passing the vibrant rhododendron forest.
There are no lodges in most of the parts of Lamjung Himal trekking. Hence, we have to spend some nights doing camping.

This Lamjung trek normally starts from Besisahar.

Best Season for Lamjung Himal Trek
The Autumn season is considered one of the best seasons to accomplish the Lamjung Himal trek. During this time of the year, the sky remains clear and you can enjoy the spectacular views throughout the trail. Snowfall may occur during the last days of November. Trekking to this region during this time makes your trip even more exciting and reminiscing.
Other than the autumn season, Spring is considered another best time for trekking to the Lamjung Himal. Blooming rhododendrons and other wildflowers adorn the Lamjung Himal trekking trails, which makes your journey more wonderful and fascinating. The warm weather and ethereal scenery make Spring the perfect season.
