About Gosaikunda Trek:

Gosaikunda Trek is religiously vital and naturally richer activity in the northern part of Nepal fallen under Langtang National Park. Situated at an altitude of 4,380 meters, Gosaikunda is the name of a sacred Kunda (Lake) and the main source of the popular Trishuli River. Usually from January to June for about half year the Gosaikunda Lake changes into frozen form offering spectacular views to its visitors.

According to Hinduism, when the tremendous poison emerged from the sea, the lord god Shiva swallowed it to save the world from its dreadful influence. And to cool down his burning throat, he released a burst of freshwater with his powerful Trisul (holy Trident) forming a Gosaikunda Lake. Afterwards, the Lake is considered as a pure and fresh water in whole Nepal. During the festival, Janai Purnima thousands of Hindu devotees of Nepal and from India visit the place to pay homage to lord god Shiva. Taking a holy bath in this lake is believed to rinse your past sins, sorrows, and pains.

Gosaikunda Trek begins with a day drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche, the gateway for all Langtang Route Treks.
