Show All

Gosainkunda Lakes lies north of Kathmandu. The Gosaikunda loop is quite remote and thinly populated area. Gosaikunda, a glacier lake, is the most famous one with several other glacial lakes adjoining it. Thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lakes during the full- moon festival in August and Hindu people believe that one of the Supreme Hindu Gods, Lord Shiva intoxicated by drinking massive amount of poison, felt thirsty so he hit the stone with his trident, which created the lakes. In the same place Lake Gosainkunda originates and Hindu people believe that the image of Lord Shiva can be seen in the middle surface of the water. The lake is also scared to Buddhists. Pilgrims are to believe that all their sins be cleaned by taking a dip into the lake.

This is a journey with numerous highlight including the stunning views of Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu and Annapurna massif as far as you can see. The Tamang and Sherpa people living here, physically and culturally resemble that of Tibetans and their unique lifestyle is still thriving under their traditional attitude. Their ancestors are believed to have descended from Tibet many centuries ago. Abundant wildlife, intense forest teaming with wild flowers and animal species, adds interest to this trek for nature lovers.
