HIGHLIGHTS
  • The famous holy lake of Gosainkunda
  • Beautiful towering Himalayas along the trek
  • Remote trekking route, less commercialized and less disturbed area
  • Various traditional villages to experience different cultures
The Gosainkunda Lake Trek will allow you to see the beautiful holy lake of Gosainkunda. The trekking route is moderate and provides spectacular views of both the Langtang and Ganesh Himal mountain ranges.

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.

Our Gosainkunda Lake trek is undoubtedly a beautiful trekking adventure. Please see the itinerary for day-by-day activities.

Gosaikunda-Amazing place to hide from this world
This was one of the best trek in my life. I was amazed by the beauty and lives in hills. Gosaikunda, a lake in about 4000 m altitude was breathtaking and even surpassed its myths. Upendra and his team organized the trek with... Read more

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • 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.
