Langtang GosaikundaTrek is an adventurous journey that includes the beautiful Langtang Valley and other rich natural sceneries in the Langtang National Park. Gosaikunda Lake, one of the main attractions of this trek, is a famous pilgrimage lake of Hindu and Buddhist devotees. It is considered sacred.  Located at 4380 meters above sea level, the visitors feel blessed to reach there, where a festival held of Janai Purnima during the August full moon.  Hindu  mythology considers the lake to Gosaikunda as a dwelling place of deities Shiva and Gauri. 

Before arriving at Gosaikunda Lake, we begin the trek at Syabrubesi after a drive from Kathmandu.  Syabrubesi is inhabited by the welcoming and culturally rich Tamang people.  The trail then follows the river upstream through bamboo, pine, and rhododendron forests.  Eventually, arriving to the alpine meadows of Kyanjin Gompa, where are we are greeted with spectacular mountain views. In addition to these mountain views, the region is home to a range of wildlife, including the musk deer, snow leopard, and a variety of birds. We take a day excursion to Tsergo-Ri and surrounding areas.  The next day we trek toLama Hotel and stay for the night.  After trekking to Thulo Syabru and then to Laurebinayak.  The following day, we arrive at the magnificent Gosaikunda, where we stay for the night and explore the lake the following day.  After a few more days of trekking to and through extraordinary mountain villages, we arrive in Sundarijal and take the bus back to Kathmandu.

As is the case more most treks in the area, Spring and Autumn are the best seasons for the Langtang Gosaikunda Trek package.  If you would like to see the festival, it is held during the August full moon.  Ascent Holidays arranges the trek with complete management, including TIMS card.
