Gosaikunda Lake lies to the north of Kathmandu valley in the Langtang National park which is a few days trek away from the capital city. It is popular among domestic and international trekkers alike. Locally, Gosaikunda is a considered sacred by Hindus and Buddhists who believe it to be close to the all powerful Lord Shiva. It lies in the laps of the Himalayas surrounded by several other lakes all considered to have deep connections to the Gods and Goddesses. We start our Trek from Sundarijal, Kathmandu and end it in Dhunche, Rasuwa.
We have a team of well experienced and professional adveturers who will give their all to make your trip wholesome.
We start our journey by taking an early morning 2 hour jeep ride to sundarijal from where we start our trek. After having our breakfast we start our walk by entering the lush green forests of shivapuri national park. We hike uphill among shallow streams and forests of rhododendron with every possible shade of green you can imagine. After almost 2 hours of walk we reach Mulkharka where we have our lunch. After lunch we do more uphill trekking from where we start seeing views of the Himalayas with ranges like Ganesh Himal range, Langtang lirung range. After almost 4 hours of hiking up we reach Chisapani where we dine and rest for the day and get ready for the awesome views we shall encounter the next day.
The most strenuous yet one of the most beautiful day of the whole journey, we start early morning after having tea and breakfast. We gain altitude very fast this day so drinking a lot of water while enjoying the majestic peaks of Langtang and Ganesh Himal, we lunch with the tamang people who we encounter along the way. These tamang villages are very rich in culture and remain largely untouched by the growing urbanization just a day south in Kathmandu. After completing a hectic yet very very enthralling route, we reach Ghopte during the eveining. We dine and rest in one of the teahouse lodges in Tuksang.
After breakfast early morning, we start our walk further north from Kathmandu and we can notice human settlements getting less and less dense. As we move closer to the Himalayas, we can also observe the change in vegetation, animal species, and the geography altogether. We have our lunch in one of the teahouses in the afternoon and after about 7-9 hours of soul cleansing hike , we reach Ghopte where we call it a day and get excited for the next day when we will be chilling in one of the swimming pools of lord shiva in Gosaikunda lake.
We start early in the morning after breakfast as always and take a steep rocky path towards Gosaikunda. During the way we can notice how we leave behind the hilly regions of Nepal and enter the mighty Himalayas; a completely different geography. Because we are so high up in altitude, feeling slightly lightheaded and decresing energy levels is expected and is only natural. Drinking lots of water and avoiding alcohol altogether during the journey helps avoid these situations. We might also encounter snowfall in these parts during the journey, so, proper shoes and warm clothes are a necessity. After having lunch on our way and after almost 7 hours of walk, we are welcomed by the awe inspiring Gosaikunda which is surrounded by majestic Himalayan peaks, and many other smaller lakes scattered around the area. Hindu mythology believes that taking a dip in the serene Gosaikunda gives you the almighty Lord Shiva’s blessings. We will be resting in one of the tea house lodges in the area.
After 4 days of climbing up and down the hills and the mountainside, we all deserve a peaceful quiet rest in the presence of the mighty Gosaikunda. Hindu pilgrims can meditate and prey in the Shiva temple in front of the Gosaikunda lake, and no matter what faith you follow, can take blessings from the place itself whose beauty and serenity can hardly be described using silly words. Explorers can take a short 2 hour hike to the surya peak which provides more clearer and pristine views of the Himalayas and the many lakes in the area. We stay overnight in front of the lake, and be ready for the downhill journey of the next day.
We leave early for the 7 hours downhill journey after breakfast. During the way we encounter dense rhododendron forests and a distinct change in the topology, climate and geography as we go down. We are welcomed by views of more pristine ranges of the Himalayas as we go down the steep Lauri bina pass, which got its name because it is so steep it cannot be crossed without using a lauri (walking-stick). From the top of the pass, you can see one of the best views of the Himalayas you have seen. After having lunch in a lama village called chandanbari, we go downwards towards the regional headquarters of Rasuwa district- Dhunche which is quite a big town compared to the other human settlements we see during the trek. We dine and rest at a hotel in Dhunche. We end our trek here and take a jeep to Kathmandu the next day.
After having breakfast we take a jeep and head towards Kathmandu. We lunch in Nuwakot and reach Kathmandu in about 6-7 hours. We reach Kathmandu, rest for a bit, remember what an epic journey it had been in the mountains and get ready for another adventure
