Gosainkunda is a famous pilgrimage site situated in the in the Langtang region of Nepal. It is surrounded by the various Lakes that are known as the Himalayan frozen Lakes. It lies in the northern part of Kathmandu. A big fair held in this place in the Janai Purnima festival, falls in August. According to the Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva has once meditated here. The Gosaikunda Trekking leads you towards this holy Lake in the Himalayan region with an adventure walk.
The trek to Gosaikunda begins from Dhunche, which is about six hours drive from Kathmandu. It is the district headquarter of Rasuwa. Then it crosses several ethnic villages like Deurali, Dimsa and reach the Shin Gompa. You can explore the monastery located here and head further to Lauribina Yak (3910m). It becomes tough to walk as the altitude increases and acclimatization is important. The vegetations and fauna species are diverse in this area. Crossing the roofless stone huts you can reach the Gosaikunda Lake. It remains frozen for almost half of the year. The surrounding 108 Lakes around here are the sources of water in the Trishuli River. You have an option from Gosaikunda Lake, either to cross the Lauribina Pass at 4610 meters altitude and descend to Chisapani via Ghopte or trek en route to Dhunche and drive back to Kathmandu.
If you trek in august, you can see the Janaipurnima fair on the Gosaikunda Lake. Both spring and autumn are the best seasons to trek in this route.
