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.

- 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.
