Trip Introduction: 

Alpine fresh water lake Gosainkunda is located inside one of the nearest national park of Nepal at Langtang National Park with an altitude of 4,380 meters above from sea level. It is an origin place of Trishuli River (the river is very famous for rafting adventure in Nepal) and the lake remains frozen during the entire winter season (October to June). There is total small to medium 108 lakes with its own value and importance.

Gosainkunda Lake Trekking can be considered as a religious site trek since the Gosainkunda area has been delineated as a great religious site of HINDUS. Accordance with Hindu mythology, the place was a residence of Hindu God Shiva and Goddess Gauri. Some holy books Bhagavata Purana, Ramayana and Mahabharata mentions the Gosainkunda Lake was created by lord Shiva himself. During the time of great Hindu Festivals Gangadashahara and Janai Purnima, thousands of Hindu devotees gather there to worship the gods.

The Gosainkunda Lake Trekking adds extra adventure via crossing of adventurous Gosainkunda La at 4,610 meters. Officially regulated day to day itinerary of 12 days Gosainkunda Lake Trekking package trip with Adventure Mountain Nepal Trekking and Climbing Pvt. Ltd begins after spending a day in capital city Kathmandu with a day guided sightseeing tour around world heritage sites of UNESCO. Leaving Kathmandu, we make a short drive towards Sundarijal and start trekking to Chisapani. The trail we are following is begins with a trail of Helambu Circuit Trekking, anyway we do have another optional itinerary which is not go through the adventurous Gosainkunda Pass at 4,610 meters so we assume this itinerary offers more adventurous experience for our adventure seeking trekkers. Continuous uphill from Phedi to Gosainkunda Pass is tough but once we reach at the top we can have bold views of Langtang, Ganesh Himal, Annapurna, Dorje Lakpa and many other snow-capped peaks gives secret energy to get down into Gosainkunda Lake. After we explore and observe the Gosainkunda Lake, we gradually make a downhill walk to Chandan Bari and Dhunche to drive back to Kathmandu after accomplish the wonderful adventure experience of Gosainkunda Lake Trekking with AMN Trekking and Climbing Team.
