Trip Description - Gosaikunda Lake Trek

Gosaikunda Lake Trek itinerary is designed to moderate trekkers. The journey starts from Kathmandu which is the capital of the Himalayan state “Nepal“, where you will explore and explore the city in your spare time in anticipation of your ascent. Trek to the Sacred Lakes of Gosaikunda starts from Bharkhu and ends at Dhunche. The Gosaikunda lake is also an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in the Langtang National Park of Nepal. It is located at an altitude of 13.8 hectares (34 acres) at an altitude of 4,380 meters in Rasuwa district. The lake melts and becomes the Trishuli River; in the winter season the lake will be frozen or ice for six months from October to June.

The trek is a short distance from the famous Eight-Thousand, in a less grand landscape. We walk through the terrace of Helambu and reach Gosaikunda Lake through the rhododendron forest. Most of the time we small villages cross their monasteries and chortens and enjoy the magnificent view of the highest mountain. It is the main destination for thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims, visiting in their thousands every year. The unique costumes and traditional stone houses reflect their culture and lifestyle. Most trekking routes pass through semi-tropical forests. Most of the area covers the ground and the orchids cling to tree trunks. Crossing the sacred lake of Gosaikunda we reach Laurebina La (4,620 m). There is a majority of Tamang community in this area. Partially protected as Langtang National Park, the area offers nature walking experiences and knowledge of the cultural traditions of the Tamangs.

Accommodation offered during the trip

The accommodation we use may vary depending on our package travel and the range of travel destinations. Before or after the trip you can book comfortable hotels in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara for your stay. If you book a tea house trekking trip, we will provide a small two-bed room for sharing in the hill lodges which is a basic facility but very clean.

Now, better-equipped lodges are also available in Annapurna and Everest areas but we recommend trekkers to use accommodation above 3,500 meters where clean rooms and clean food are readily available. Sometimes a level of flexibility may be required when trekking in remote mountain areas. We believe that you will complete your vacation without any problems and have the trip of a lifetime. If you book camping/trekking, our camping team will manage a comfortable camping site by the river where possible.

There will usually be a dedicated support team on the trip to move luggage and equipment, set up camp, and prepare your food. You will find more detailed information about travel accommodation which is mentioned separately in the lodging section of each vacation package page.

However, you can expect excellent service and high quality in any budget range you choose. You can learn more about different types of travel and their features and the proposed travel price by contacting us directly where we will be very pleased to answer your questions. We always try to choose comfortable accommodation with local character reflecting the best value based on twin share accommodation.

When you book a trip, unless you request a private single room, we will arrange for you to share a twin bed room with a person of the same gender. If you request a private single room, you will need to pay a single room supplementary fee. Please note that during the trek, if the destination is 4000 meters above sea level, only dormitory accommodation with private beds will be available. On trekking trips we try our best but do not promise guaranteed room options. For most of our camping trips, we supply branded two-person tents, including groundsheets.

Mess tent, kitchen tent, toilet tent, service plates, bowls, and all necessities are provided. Members of the mountaineering travel group are requested to manage according to the options given on the website.
