This Gosainkunda Lake Trek is a journey through the isolated Tamang villages with minimal effort and mostly in a peaceful environment. Gosainkunda Lake itself is an alpine freshwater lake located North of Kathmandu valley having several other smaller lakes around it. It is said that there are 106 lakes around the main Gosainkunda Lake.
Lauribinayal, a place before reaching Gosainkunda, provides excellent views at sunrise and sunset over the Langtang and Ganesh Himal ranges. You can therefore look forward to getting here.
This trek is an ideal trekking route for trekkers looking for a moderate trek surrounded by peaceful nature. Lodges are relatively simple along the trek but have well-maintained rooms and great food everywhere.

- What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?
Is a visa on arrival available?
Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

Is Asia open for tourists?
Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.
As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
How much money do I need to bring with me?
Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.
