trip Overview

Gosaikunda trek is a holy trek rewarded with a serene panorama of snow-capped mountains and numerous holy lakes. Gosaikunda Lake lies in the elevation of 4,380m inside Langtang National Park. UNESCO has listed Gosaikunda as a Ramsar site on 29 September 2007. During winter, the lake remains frozen but the rest of the year, the lake melts to form the Trisuli river.
This lake is a well-known pilgrimage site for Hindus. During Janai Purnima, thousands of Hindu devotees from all over the world visit this lake.
Gosaikunda Lake is not only one we will witness during this Gosaikunda trek. This region has altogether 108 lakes including Sarawatikunda, Bhairabkunda & Suryakunda & Each of them have their own religious significance.
According to Hindu Mythology, it is believed that Lord Shiva has created this lake and is the adobe of Hindu deities Shiva and Gauri. The water of this trek is holy and can wash away all your sins if you take bath there.

Another major attraction of this trek is the great panoramic mountains we can witness during the trek. One of the most beautiful peaks visible during this trek is Dorje Lakpa ranges ( 6,988m). Besides, we can witness numerous towering peaks like Ganesh Himal, Loribinayak Manaslu, and Langtang ranges.
During this 8 days Gosaikunda trek, we will be following the Dhunche-Helambu trekking route. As it is a short and moderate level trek, anyone with a normal physical condition can do it.
Following a quiet and pleasant trail running through different Tamang Villages, we can experience the cultural aspects and lifestyle of people there.
Walking around Langtang Conservation Area, we can witness many beautiful birds, butterflies & endangered animals like Red Panda, Himalayan Deer, etc.
If you are looking for a trek easily accessible from Kathmandu and has great natural, cultural & religious, Gosaikunda trek is perfect.
