HIGHLIGHTS
  • Explore five lakes including Gosainkunda, a religious and holy lake of Nepal
  • Spectacular view of Annapurna, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung
  • Trek through pine and rhododendron forest and different flora and fauna on the way
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.

Great, even in the monsoon
“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.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • 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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • 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 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.
