The Gosainkunda trek begin from Dhunche with spectacular views of Langtang Himalaya (7245m), Ganesh Himal (7405m), Dorje Lhakpa (6990m) and other small mountains of the Langtang Himalayan range.

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 towards of Mt. Himal Chuli (7893meter), Mt. Manaslu (8156meter) and Mt. 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 Gosainkunda region there are numerous lakes. The main three are Saraswatikunda, Bhairabkunda, and Gosainkunda. According to the legend, Shiva created Gosainkunda when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after having swallowed poison that threatened to destroy the world.

“We went to Gosaikunda in the monsoon but still got visibility of the lake. On the way up and down the view was obscured by clouds but I have uploaded some photos of the views we were able to see.”
