For this trip we collaborate with the International Speaker, Entrepreneur and Success Mentor, the amazing Luke Scott (www.standoutonline.tv)!

The Holy Gosainkunda lake trek lays in the Langtang region, North of Kathmandu. It is a holy place for Hindus who believe that the holy water of the lake washes off their sins. The area fosters many glacial lakes, Gosaikunda lake being the holiest one at an altitude of 4,380m. The lake melts into the iconic Trisuli River.

 

The epics of Ramayana and Mahabarata – the Hindu mythology – are directly linked to the origin of Gosaikunda. It is believed that Lord Shiva nailed his holy trident into a mountain to obtain some water after having swollen some poison. Thus, numerous pilgrims do this route once in a lifetime.

 

The trek passes through varied landscapes and green forest ranging from subtropical to alpine environment, terraced fields, waterfalls, streams, hills and super scenic mountains view.
