The Gosainkunda trek takes you through beautiful topography and geology, together with varied climatic conditions of Langtang National Park, giving a wide range of vegetation types (including a sub-tropical forest). The Gosainkunda area is covered with 108 holy Lakes. Culturally the area is a mix of several ethnicities including Tamang, Sherpa, Cherti and Brahman people.

The Gosainkunda trek follows a rough trail with dramatic views to the west Himal Chuli (7893meter) Manaslu (8156meter) and Ganesh Himal (7406m). On a clear day, even the Annapurna range can be seen rising up behind and to the north across the valley is Langtang Lirung, the Langtang Range's highest mountain with its 7227 meters.

After reaching Laurebina La we cross a small ridge and have our first views of the holy Gosainkunda lakes. In the Gosaikunda region there are numerous lakes.
