Gosainkunda Lake trek is a popular short trek of 5 days. It is a pilgrimage trek to see the Holy Gosainkunda Lake as well as a few dozen more blue pristine lakes in the region of Langtang. Ancient history records that Lord Shiva pierced the glacier to drink the water in the region forming the lakes. So, many people of Hindu and Buddhist religions are visiting the Gosainkunda Lake once a year in August at 'Janai Purnima.'
Having some religious beliefs, the region is also very popular for the beauty it holds. You will cross a dense forest of rhododendron, pine, and bamboo, along with various terrains to reach the top of the trek point: 4380 meters above sea level.
