About : Gosaikunda Trek

Gosaikunda Trek is religiously vital and naturally richer activity in the northern part of Nepal fallen under Langtang National Park.

According to Hinduism, when the tremendous poison emerged from the sea, the lord god Shiva swallowed it to save the world from its dreadful influence. And to cool down his burning throat, he released a burst of freshwater with his powerful Trisul (holy Trident) forming a Gosaikunda Lake. Afterwards, the Lake is considered as a pure and fresh water in whole Nepal.
