Beautiful lakes Gosaikunda Trek 7 days Itinerary

The Gosaikunda Trek, renowned and frequented, winds its way to the revered Gosaikunda Lakes nestled in the Langtang region proximate to Kathmandu, Nepal. Spanning approximately 7-10 days, this journey presents a moderate challenge, encompassing numerous steep ascents and descents along the route.

The Gosaikunda Trek begins its journey in Dhunche, approximately a 7-hour drive from Kathmandu. From there, hikers traverse a well-marked path winding through verdant forests, picturesque villages, and terraced fields. Along the route, breathtaking views of snow-capped Himalayan peaks like Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, and Dorje Lakpa grace the horizon.

Gosaikunda holds deep spiritual significance for Hindu pilgrims and practitioners of shamanism, Bon Po. According to legend, immersing oneself in the sacred waters of Gosaikunda Lake can purify one of pain, sorrow, and transgressions.

Additionally, the Gosaikunda Trek Lake holds religious significance in Hindu beliefs. Legend has it that the god Mahadev, grieving the loss of his wife, struck a rock with his divine staff, causing water to flow and form the lakes. Despite natural explanations for their formation, the lakes remain deeply associated with spiritual devotion. During the full moon day of September (Janai Purnima), a large number of domestic and Indian pilgrims visit Gosaikunda Lake. Throughout the rest of the month, only a few trekkers venture to the lake via the Helambu route and proceed to Langtang Valley.

At an elevation of 4,380 meters above sea level, Gosaikunda Lake Trek beckons adventure enthusiasts to its sacred waters. Set amidst a stunning landscape, the area features neatly terraced slopes, villages inhabited by the Tamang ethnic group, varied wildlife, and a rich array of flora and fauna. Moreover, the breathtaking vistas of the encircling mountain range add to the trek’s allure.

The direct distance from Kathmandu to Gosaikunda Lake is 67.5 km, and it usually takes about seven days to cover the 32.4 km distance from Sundarijal Chisapani to Gosainkunda. An alternative route is to trek from Sundarijal Chisapani to Gosainkunda, spanning 32.4 km.

The main highlight of the Gosaikunda Trek is undeniably the sacred Gosaikunda Lakes, cradled at an altitude of 4,380 meters. These holy waters hold profound significance for both Hindus and Buddhists, embraced by towering peaks and icy glaciers. Immersing oneself in the refreshing, brisk waters of the lakes while being enveloped by the awe-inspiring Himalayan panorama evokes an indelible sense of wonder.

Exploring the scattered monasteries and gompas throughout the area provides a profound encounter with the tranquil and spiritually charged atmosphere they radiate.
