What to see during trekking to Gosakunda Lake?

On this 1 week’s short trek, you’ll see stunning mountain views such as the Manaslu range, Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal range, and Tibetan peaks. You’ll also see more than 7 lakes among them Gosaikunda, Saraswati Kunda, and Bhairab Kunda will be seen on the way. We can also combine Langtang Trek with Gosaikunda Lake

During the Janai Purnima occasion, the place is visited by thousands of local domestic people. On the trail, we can see Tamang communities and their Tibetan-influenced cultural practices. This route is rich in flora and fauna; such as Rhododendron forests, Pine, Fir, etc. On the way to the lake, Monasteries and cheese factories are also visible.

Gosaikunda has been a Ramsar site since 2007 which means it is a wetland of international importance. It is those types of sites that are considered holy to both Buddhists and Hindus.

Since this trail is not too difficult, anyone with moderate fitness can complete this trek. During the winter season, Gosaikunda Lake freezes. In summer, the lake melts and the water flows down the Trishuli River.

Amazingly, it is believed that Lord Shiva formed the lake when he thrust his holy trident into the mountain to extract water to drink. During this month, thousands of Hindu pilgrims from Nepal and India go there to celebrate Janai Purnima around the lake.

According to Hindu mythology, there are 108 lakes in the Gosaikunda area, each named after a different name of Lord Shiva. The total area covered by these delightful lakes is 1,030 hectares (4.0 square miles)..

Reviews (Gosaikunda Trekking)

Fantastic 5 days short trekking to Gosaikunda

We did a very short trek in Nepal and that was trekking to Gosaikunda. It was well-organized by Base Camp Hike. Though it 5 days trek, we enjoyed it a lot with guide Nabaraj. We experienced Mountain views, pristine holy lakes, local culture, and lifestyle. I suggest to visit tourists if they want to do a short trek in Nepal.
