About Gosainkunda Lake pass Trek

Gosainkunda lake pass trek offering both the religious and natural insight is the most favored trekking route of Langtang region. Throughout your trek to Gosainkunda pass-Helambu, you can find the traces of both Hinduism and Buddhism here. Gosainkunda holds a great religious significance to Hindu people as they believe that the lake came into existence as Lord Shiva hurled his Trishul into a mountain to acquire water after he had swallowed the poison.  Helambu being eminently altered by the Tibetan culture you can relish the aura of Buddhism here. Alongside religious insight, mountain delight, unblemished surrounding, and exploration of unbound natural beauty are the key attraction of this region.

Our exciting journey begins with a heartwarming scenic drive of nearly 8-9 hours, as we head towards Syabru Bensi which is a major trading place for locals here; and this is where we start hiking in untouched territory for over ten days in Helambu; we take our time to walk through lonely routes and it is a haven for bird lovers; walking the trail while hearing the merry chirping of birds all the way amidst flowery hillocks is something you heart will warm to. Our trip leads us to the glaciers near the towering Langtang Lirung {7246m}, the Annapurna range, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal and other popular peaks around this region. As we cut the wind of Thar danda and move forward we walk into Kyangjin Gompa {3800m} and thus to the holy lakes of Gosainkunda.
