Trekkers need to keep climbing until they pass Lauribina La Pass. Until Lauribina La Pass, trekkers are always accompanied by woods and wildflowers. While moving through Lauribinayak, mountains welcome the trekkers whereas trekkers can also see the ridges they have climbed up. Then, shrubs and rocks can only be seen until trekkers reach Gosaikunda Lake. The trail is small which is made through the rocky mountain and the views observed vary with the season. However, the tranquil environment remains the same which makes the mind peaceful and heart pleasing. Nature can be seen in the most unspoiled form with the added beauty of lakes as Gosaikunda, Saraswati, and Bhairab. Langtang National Park is widely popular for conserving and increasing the number of rare red panda and the Gosaikunda Lake Trekking trail is through Langtang National Park.

Gosaikunda Lake and the Mythological Tales 

Gosaikunda Lake holds the high religious value as per the Hindu mythology. As per the local people's beliefs, Gosaikunda Lake was created by Lord Shiva by his trident. When Lord Shiva was balancing the war between Dev (Gods) and Devil, he had to swallow the poison of the world to save it. It was extremely hard to hold the poison for Lord Shive and the poison made him stinging thirsty. Then, he pulled off his trident and perforated the mountain. The shot of trident made the flow of water from the mountain, which created the Gosaikunda Lake. Lord Shiva satisfied his thirst. It made the Gosaikunda Lake a holy lake with major religious value. Every year, on the occasion of Janai Purnima, the full moon of August, pilgrims from different places visit Gosaikunda with the hope to fulfill their wishes, get blessings and reside in heaven by cleansing all the unknown fault of their life. Early morning despite too cold weather and freezing water, they take bath in the Gosaikunda Lake and carry worshiping. During the time of Janai Purnima, the Gosaikunda Lake gets too crowded by the pilgrims. Mostly, the pilgrims of Hindu and Buddhists visit Gosaikunda Lake with a religious purpose.

    Himalayan Jewel

    The trek to Gosaikunda Lake itself was challenging but immensely rewarding, with the turquoise waters of the sacred lake shimmering amidst the rugged landscape. Camping beside the lake under the starlit sky was a surreal experience, filling me with a sense of peace and tranquility. It's a trek I'd recommend to anyone seeking solace amidst the grandeur of the Himalayas.

    Truly a hidden gem

    Camping by the lake allowed me to disconnect from the outside world and immerse myself in the beauty of nature. The sight of the snow-capped peaks reflecting in the shimmering waters of the lake was a sight I'll never forget.
