The Gosainkunda Lake Trek represents beautiful landscapes, tropical and alpine forests such as rhododendron, orchids, pines, and many more. Besides that, magnificent views of snow-capped mountains and cultural influence make this trek unforgettable. Gosainkunda – a holy lake, falls on in the Langtang region. The religious devotees (Hindu and Buddhist) will participate in August’s full moon each year for the ritual ceremony. In particular, Hindus and Buddhist devotees visit the lake for religious reasons. In contrast, others see the wonders of nature to observe it.
Generally, the trek lets you introduce the diverse culture of Tamang, Sherpa, and Hyolmo. Gosainkunda lake trekking is one of the shortest treks in Nepal and a relatively easy trek. Due to the rapid gaining of altitude, it may cause altitude sickness.
