Gosainkunda Lake Trekking

(11 DAYS HOTEL, LODGES AND CITIES AND WILDLIFE)

Gosainkunda Lake also known as the Frozen Lake is situated at 4,380 meters above sea level in the Langtang National Park of Nepal. The Gosainkunda Lake is sacred to the Hindu people and visited in huge numbers in August-September during the special festival called 'Janaipoornima'. They have a strong belief that taking a dip into the lake will wash all sin from their body. According to the Hindu Mythology, it is believed that Lord Shiva created the holy lake. After taking poison from 'Samudramanthan', he desperately needed cold water to quench the heat of the poison so he used his trident to dig up the land to obtain water. 'Kunda' is the Nepali word for lake and there are many Kundas in this area with Gosainkunda being the most important one. The trek starts at Dhunche and passes through lush green and rhododendron forest, varied landscapes and villages inhabited by ethnic Tamang tribe. Gosainkunda or Lauribinayak pass (4,609m) is one of the highlights of this trekking. The pass remains closed (Sometimes) in February and March because of snow. The trek ends at Sundarijal passing through some beautiful terraces and a number of splendid Buddhist monasteries around the delightful villages. Sundarijal is the famous watershed area and the biggest resources of Kathmandu's drinking water supply.
