Gosaikunda Pilgrimage Tour

Gosainkund Lake is the site for a great pilgrimage. The large rock in the center of the lake is said to be the remains of Shiva shrine and it is also claimed that a channel carries water from the lake directly to the tank at the Kumbeshwer Temple in Patan. Gosainkund is the most famous of a string of lakes and renowned among Nepali Hindus. This can be trekked on its own in as little as four days, but because of its rapid ascent to high elevation. It is best done after some acclimatizing in Langtang or Helambu. From either Dhunche or Syabru, trails ascend steeply through mossy rhodendron forest to the monastery and cheese factory of Sing Gompa. Above here, the trail climbs through tall fir stands before emerging above the tree line for increasingly panoramic views of the high peaks and finally entering the barren upper reaches of the Trishuli river, where glacial moraines and rockslides have left a string of half a dozen lakes (kund). You can also climb a nearby summit for awesome views.
