Gosainkunda Pass Trek

Gosainkunda Pass Trek is an exciting journey to cross the Mountain pass between Langtang and Helambu Valley. The trip starts at Syaprubesi after 8 hours’ bus journey from Kathmandu. The trip can also start through Sundarijal, Melamchi, and Dhunche. Just before the Pass (4610 m), numerous holy lakes can explore, such as Bhairavkunda, Saraswati Kund, Surjekunda, Dudkunda and the Gosaikunda at 4380 m above the sea level. Gosain means ‘pilgrim' and Kunda means 'lake’. The Pass is one-hour far from those lakes. After the Mountain Pass, trekking route passes through the Tharepati to Helambu and Sundarijal northeast of the Kathmandu Valley.

Gosainkunda Pass Trek is interesting to visit the Langtang Valley and the holy lakes are included in the Ramsar Site. The rich Tamang culture, alpine settlement, red panda trail, flora, and fauna are notable. One hour before the Lakes there is also a Lauribina Pass with a view of Annapurna and Langtang Himal. Gosainkunda is a holy lake for Hindus all over the world. The destructor God Shiva had created the lake at the age of truth. According to the myth, once Gods and Demons joined in a mission of churning ocean to obtain immortality water (Amrita). They also obtained poison (Kalkut) that might be harmful to other Gods, therefore God Shiva drank alone and saved others life. God Shiva later became the Nilkantha (blue-throated) with an effect of the poison. After the problem, God Shiva went to the Himalaya Valley and thrust his trident (Trishul) to the ground to drink water that became later the Gosainkunda Lake.

Gosainkunda Pass Trek offers to visit the pilgrimage center. Every year in August, at least 30 thousand pilgrims celebrate the Janai Purnima festival to pay homage to the God Shiva. Devotees take a ritual bath in the lakes and worship to Shiva temple. Several shamans come to celebrate the festival with dancing in a rich dress and drum set. In winter, these lakes will freeze. The journey is worth to explore red panda, Tamang culture, alpine vegetation, wetland,  and for the spectacular views of Annapurna (8091 m), Manaslu (8167 m), Langtang (7245 m), and Dorje Lakpa. The red panda can meet along the route in the Sing Gompa (3300 m) and the wildflowers bloom in summer. The further information and detail itinerary is below.
