Gosainkund is a famous holy lake for both Hindus and the Buddhists. Thousands of Hindu pilgrims visit the lake every year during the full- moon festival in August. According to the Hindu mythology, when the God Shiva churned the primordial ocean to produce the elixir of eternal life, a poison was also produced simultaneously. To save the universe from this poison, Lord Shiva drank it scaring his throat blue in the process. To cool down his burning throat, Lord Shiva struck his trident into the rock creating three springs which ultimately resulted in the formation of beautiful lakes. Finally, Lord Shiva drank the water of the lakes and got rid of the pain.

This trek provides excellent views of snow-capped mountains, picturesque valley and glimpses of alpine holy lakes with diverse ethnical culture. It is possible and also recommended to combine this trek with the Langtang Valley Trek in order to aid acclimatization on higher altitude. However, it is possible to do the trek stand alone in case you don’t have enough time.
