Langtang Gosaikunda Lake Trek is a trip to explore the holy lake of Gosaikunda. Located 4380 meters above the sea level, Gosaikunda lake is a great pilgrimage site to Hindu Religion. It is said that during the time of Samundra Mathan (Churning of the sea), the poison was produced and Lord Shiva has swallowed that poison to save the planet. But the poison was so strong the Lord Shiva needed the water. He then landed at Gosaikunda and produced the water with his trident to heal the pain. And it is believed that the pond was made of that water. It is also believed that even today Lord Shiva is taking rest inside the Lake.

 


The Langtang Gosaikunda Lake trek is 5 days trekking from Kathmandu. The trek offers to explore the local villages of Langtang. The trip also allows enjoying the diverse landscapes and the superb views of the Langtang mountain range as well. The trek is also a local teahouse type trekking in Nepal. This trek can be done 365 days in a year. But the best time to trek Gosaikunda Lake is spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November). Although trekking Gosaikunda Lake is also possible during the months of the monsoon (June to August). During the monsoon time, one of the biggest festivals- Janai Purnima lies and thousands of devotees visit the pond with the great believe to get the salvation.

 


Basically, two different permits are needed to trek Langtang Gosaikunda Lake. The first permit needed is Langtang National Park Permit and the next permit needed for the trekking is TIMS Cards. The Langtang National Park Permit can be issued along the way but the TIMS card is needed to issue in Kathmandu.
