Gosaikunda trek is easily accessible from Kathmandu and remains remarkably beautiful, which is the Tamang ethnic group prevailing in this area. Explore their culture and way of living is a major highlight part of this trek. Langtang National Park is crossed with hiking and trekking paths and mountaineering trails allowing visitor’s great accessibility. You will have more chances to see wildlife during the trek because this area is also known as a land of Red Panda. Even you will often see musk deer, Himalayan Tahr, Himalayan black beer, snow leopard, wild goat, Goral and more than 250 species of birds. The trek offers spectacular views of Naya Kanga (5,846m), Ponggen Dopku (5,930m), Mt Langtang Lirung (7245m) and Dorje Lakpa (6966m).
We will travel through Chandan Bari or Sing Gompa to a high plateau, where the sacred lake Gosaikunda is located. Gosaikund Lake has a black rock in the middle, said to be the head of Shiva. According to the legend, Shiva created this high altitude lake when he pierced a glacier with his trident (trisul) to obtain water to quench his thirst after consuming poison gathered from the churning of the oceans (the poison is the reason why Shiva is depicted with a blue throat).
There is a white rock under the water which is said to be the remnant of an ancient Shiva shrine. It is also said that the water from this lake disappears underground via a subterranean channel and makes surface again in Kumbeshwar pool, next to the five-story Shiva temple in Patan, more than 60km away. Thousands of people come here to worship and bathe during the full moon festival each august. Crossing the Laurebena Pass (4610m), we will continue Gosaikunda Trek, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu side. From where, it’s just a few days trek back to Kathmandu.
