Gosaikunda Lake Trek is one of the least crowded and high altitude trekking destinations in Langtang region of Nepal. This lake is also called an alpine freshwater lake situated at an elevation of 4,380 m. It is a very popular from religious perspective. Thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims from different parts of Nepal and India visit Gosaikunda Lake every year especially on full moon day of August also called in Nepali ‘ Janai Purnima festival ‘.  According to Hindu mythology, it says that Gosaikunda Lake is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when He thrust his Trishul (holy Trident) into a mountain to extract water in order to cool his stinging throat after he had swallowed poison. There are 108 lakes clustered around the area but mainly Saraswati lake, Bhairab lake, Surya lake and Gosaikunda lake are the most popular and visible from the trekking routes.

We begin our Gosaikunda Lake Trek by a local bus from Kathmandu up to the trek starting point– Dunche. We drive through Trishuli Bazaar and then continue uphill mountain road until we reach Dunche. After spending a night at tea house in Dunche we start our first day of Gosaikunda Lake Trek climbing more steeply through farmland, walking through rhododendron, oak, bamboo forests and above the tree line along the alpine ridge.

While our Gosaikunda Lake Trek, we enjoy the panoramic view of Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, Annapurna, Langtang Lirung , Ganesh Himal , Dorje Lhakpa peaks until we reach a rocky bowl studded with scared high altitude lakes. At the same time while trekking, we get to know the local community and experience their unique culture and lifestyle. The permanent inhabitants of Gosaikunda area are Tamang and Sherpa, whose ancestry has been traced back to Tibet. Religion, culture, languages, and costumes of Tamang and Sherpa communities are similar to the Tibetan people.
