Introduction to Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trek

The Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trek is a short and adventurous trip to Nepal. You drive from Kathmandu for 7 hours by private vehicle or public bus. You reach Dhunche, from where you can start your incredible trekking adventure. These 7 days of Gosinkunda frozen lake trekking altitude increases when you first reach through forests of oak and rhododendron and then bamboo forests. There will also be the opportunity to visit a traditional handmade cheese factory.

When you return to Kathmandu, you will also visit some beautiful rice terraces and many magnificent Buddhist monasteries around the picturesque village. This trek crosses the High Passage and reaches the
beautiful frozen lake at an altitude of 4,381 m, surrounded by mountains.

Nepal’s Gosikunda Frozen Lake Trek is one of the world’s trekking destinations known for its magnificent and breathtaking scenic beauty. Not only trekkers but also religious people visit this area in large numbers. It is believed that once you take a bath in this holy lake, all pain, sorrow, and sins will be washed away.

Although easily accessible from Kathmandu, the Langtang and Gosainkunda areas are less trekked than the Annapurna or Everest areas and have all made it attractive. The Gosainkunda Lake trek is truly a lifetime experience for the trekkers. There are 108 lakes in this area, and among them, the famous and most important are the Saraswati Kunda, Bhairab Kunda, Surya Kunda, and Gosainkunda, which are mainly visible from the route. Besides, Langtang National Park is famous for red pandas, snow leopards, and many other species of indigenous monkeys and birds.

In return, we will travel to the sacred Gosainkunda Lake and the Laurebenayak Pass. According to Hindu mythology, Lord Shiva’s house is located in this place. There are other lakes around Gosainkunda, and once a year in August, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims gather here for a holy bath during the festival of Janai Purnima. The main inhabitants of the Gosainkunda region are of Tibetan origin, Tamang and Sherpa, whose religion, culture, languages, and dress are closely similar to those of the Tibetan people.

The Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trek offers an ideal trek for those who do not have much time. This trek is also good for those who want to experience Nepal’s culture, landscape, stunning mountains, wildlife, and flora. Other highlights of this trek include the Laurebenayak Pass, which offers a 360-degree panoramic view of the Himalayan range. Most of the local families operate lodges and tea houses. It is a wonderful pilgrimage footprint trek as well as Nepal’s most rewarding trek.

Thank you a lot for your organization about my trek. It was a superb experience; all was perfect. Karma is a very nice person and a good guide. I appreciated trekking with Odyssey (a reliable Nepal trek operator). If I come back to Nepal, I will be happy to ask you to trek with me again. I am thinking about Annapurna or the Everest trek.

Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.

They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.

Thanks.
