Gosaikunda is one of the most popular religious sites that resides in the Langtang region far from the city noises and busy lives. It is believed that Lord Shiva had swallowed the venom that would have destroyed the whole world which led to burning his throat. He then thrust his Trident into a mountain in search of water to relieve the burn. The water then formed Gosainkunda, the alpine freshwater lake which is now sacred for both Buddhists and Hindus. It is also the origin of the Trishuli river. It is visited mostly on the occasion of Janai Purnima and Gangadashara. The tea houses and lodges are abundantly available during these times unlike other times of the year.
The trek to this beautiful heritage is classic and soothing. Traveling in the Langtang region fills your mind and soul with immense joy, adventure and refreshment. Traversing the green lush forests with diverse vegetations of pine, rhododendron, sisal, oak, and slowly ascending to the barren rocky lands where no trees are found, this trek offers beautiful views of the Langtang region. Get acquainted with the local culture and their lifestyle.
This trek is comparatively easy and requires less experience with the availability of transportation up to halfway. One can choose to trek from Sundarijal-Chisapani-Gosaikunda- Dhunche/Syabrubesi or vice-versa. Either Route offers equally beautiful sceneries and thrill. We pass through many of the 108 lakes in the vicinity around this wonderful lake.
