Gosain Kund Lake

Gosainkunda is situated on the north of Kathmandu in Langtang region. This is one of the famous, Holy Lakes in Nepal. 

The starting point of this trek is Syabrubeshi, 6/ 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. You will pass through Singh Gompa where you can visit the real Yak Cheese factory.

 The trek will further lead you over Lauribinyak pass from where you will have the panoramic views of the Langtang , Ganesh Himal, Manaslu and Annapurna range. The Gosainkunda Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes and to reach this lake you pass through Saraswati Kunda, Bhairab Kunda and Gusainkunda. 

From Gosainkunda Lake you pass more lakes and continue the trek to Ghopte which is a long journey and is not easy. So if your condition is not really good , the best option is to stay in Phedi and the next day trek to Tharepati, from where you can either continue to Helambu or go direct back to Kathmandu.

We just returned from a 15 days trek Gosaikunda lake , and had such a wonderful time. The trek was varied from freezing temperatures and huge mountains to lush rhododendron forests. Our guide Narayan was very knowledgeable and always smiling. we shared many jokes a long the way . when we got difficult time then he started new jokes , made easy to cross the way . Thanks for fun Narayan and pristine mountain trekking family who organize such a good trip to us . Hopefully we'll be back this way soon !!
