OVERVIEW

Be amongst the first to admire the grandeur and tranquility of Gosainkunda at sunrise near Lurebina, where the panoramic view of Langtang ridge is can be seen.

 

The impeccable stretch of glacial water, awe-inspiring scenery & panoramic views of Himalayas has been drawing visitors attention for years. Because of religious significance, Gosainkunda has always been a popular destination among the Hindu Devotees as well as travellers seeking for a relatively short & easy trek.

 

According To Hindu Dharma, It is said that Lord Shiva has created this high altitude lake when he pierced glacier with his Trishul.  During full moon festival Or Janai Purnima, thousands of Devotees come here to worship & take bathe with Holy water. it is believed that taking a holy dip in the cold water all your pain, sorrows, and sins, including those of your past lives, will be washed off.

 

Langtang Gosainkunda trek is filled with bamboo forests, Oaks, Rhododendron forests & varieties of Flora & Fauna featuring small waterfalls along the way.

 

So if you open up to this experience, you won't be disappointed.

PHYSICAL FITNESS

 

The Langtang valley lies in close proximity to Kathmandu, so there's nothing to worry about. The maximum elevation you will cover is at Tserko Ri (5000m) & it's achievable. The trails are wider & there's no chance of altitude sickness. So it's fair to say even novice travellers can make it.
