Gosaikunda Trekking

Gosaikunda Trekking

Gosaikunda is the side of several sacred Lakes that lie north from Kathmandu between Helambu and Langtang valley. The Main Spring of the Trisuli River is Gosaikunda Lake. Gosaikunda has been included in the Lang tang National park.

The Gosaikunda area is uninhabited for the most part, but every August as many as 75,000 pilgrims crowd into the area for a festival by a Lake that figures prominently in Hindu mythology. Devotees come to bathe in this Lake and to pray homage to Shiva. There are several legends, all similar, concerning the formation of this lake and its significance. The fantastic view from Loribinayak can see the ranges of Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and Langtang are picturesque.

Gosaikunda short trek starts from Dhunche 1950 meters, the district headquarters of Rasuwa, 4 to 6 hours’ drive from Kathmandu. Two days trekking brings you the secret Gosaikunda Lake 4180 meters with fantastic views from Loribinayak. Either you come the same way as our short itinerary or cross Loribina pass 4681 meters, 5 days trekking to Kathmandu or combine with trek Langtang valley within extra 4 days.

Here; we recommend an itinerary for 4 days, starting/ending from Dhunche. This is the best trek for a short time and looking at the best view and touchable culture.
