Famous among both nature-loving trekkers and pilgrims, the Gosaikunda trek allows you to experience mesmerizing mountain views and will take you to the land of 108 lakes. Lying in the majestic Langtang region at an altitude of 4300 meters, Gosaikunda Lake is a well-known pilgrimage site that has great importance for various religious groups who flock to the place from all over the world. The place lights up during the festival of Janai Purnima (the full moon of August) as several Hindus worshipping Lord Shiva take a pilgrimage to dip in this sacred lake as it is believed that the holy water of the lake washes away all sins.
The trek allows you to walk through Rhododendron and oak forests enjoying the picturesque panorama of the snow-capped mountains like Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and Hiuchuli as the tree line clears. Nestled in between the majestic mountain ranges, the lake is a sight to behold. The trek offers basic teahouse accommodations with delectable local cuisine and warm Nepalese hospitality.
