Gosaikunda Lake Trekking Client Feed Back

In this trek we follow a rugged trail with dramatic views; to the west Himal Chuli (7893 mt.) Manaslu (8156 mt.) and Ganesh Himal (7406 mt). On a clear day, even the Annapurna range can be seen rising up behind and to the north across the valley is Langtang Lirung. We pass a few huts in the high picture of Lauribinayak La, cross a small ridge and have our first views of the holy lakes. There are about a dozen lakes in the Gosainkunda Basin. The main three are Saraswatikunda, Bhairabkunda, and Gosainkunda. According to the Hindu mythology, when the God churned the primordial ocean to produce elixir of eternal life, the poison was also produced simultaneously. To save the universe from this poison, Lord Shiva drank it scaring his throat blue in the process. To cool down his burning throat, Lord Shiva struck his trident into the rock creating three springs which ultimately resulted in the formation of beautiful lakes.

Finally, Lord Shiva drank the water of the lakes and got rid of the pain. This trek provides excellent views of snow-capped mountains, picturesque valley and glimpse of exotic 108 holy lakes with diverse ethnic culture. The three week tour covers Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu valley trek.
