    Introduction - Gosainkunda Trek from Kathmandu

    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. The path is filled with flora and fauna of various kinds. You can interact with people of the mountains and get to know the cultures and traditions of Tamang and Sherpas. And the main attractions are the Great Himalayas with panoramic views of Langtang, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and Lirung.

    In this trek to Gosainkunda, you will take a vehicle ride to Dunche Bazar. Dunche Bazar is the starting point of the trek. From Dunche, you will walk to Chandanbari/Sing Gompa.

This is the brief trip plan for this 5 days' worth of a short trip to Gosainkunda.
