During this month, thousands of Hindu pilgrims from Nepal as well as India goest there to celebrate Janai Purnima around the lake.

According to Hindu mythology, thereof are 108 lakes in the Gosaikunda Areas which are named 108 different names of Lord Shiv. The total area covered by these delightful lakes is 1,030 ha (4.0 sq mi).

Reviews (Gosaikunda Trekking)

Fantastic 5 days short trekking to Gosaikunda

Rated 5 out of 5

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.
