Holiday Overview

The Gosaikunda trek is an extremely eloquent and a marvelous trek that takes you to the abode of the pristine heaven of Gosaikunda lake. The mountains and their accompanying buddies are often termed heavenly, and Keeping up with the name, they are often gruesome and challenging. The areas above 4,000 metres are often very demanding and straining. Thankfully, the Gosaikunda trek is a moderately easy one. And especially when you have your Sherpa guide with you. The number one rule of enjoying the mountains in Nepal is to follow your Sherpa’s instructions without any oversmartness. These people know their mountains like their homes and will do whatever it takes to carry you back safe and sound. The Gosaikunda trek is a panoramic trek and showcases the crystal clear water of the lake in a very beautiful landscape of mountains and colours All around you. There will be dozens and scores of foreign tourists too, and some mountaineers practising for upcoming expeditions. The most unique part about Gosaikunda trek is that it takes you through different circumstances and sceneries everyday, making it a constant adventure and eradicating any scope of boredom. It’s almost impossible to be bored in the mountains when you’re at lower heights. Only very high places make you feel all sort of ugly emotions that you need to win over if you want to move forward. The trek begins from Kathmandu, a beautiful place with a glamorous culture as well. You can find almost all kinds of entertainment here, from drinks to age reducing massages. There are also a number of beautiful and prominent temples and monasteries, tangled proudly with the royal heritage of Kathmandu. From Kathmandu, we would move to Dhunche and then to Thulo Syabru. From Thulo Syabru, we pass through beautiful and spiky rhododendron forests with twittering birds chirping in their melodious voices. You’d also get used to their voices in place of your morning alarm, and that, most probably, is the best thing any nature lover can ask for. The next stop is Chandan Bari. And then comes Lourebina, with a route that begins to challenge your guts. There are giant evergreen trees on the route, with the whole ground covered in mesmerising flowers and spellbinding beauty. On day 4, we reach to Gosaikunda from Lourebina. Today, you’d see a sparse vegetation, with almost absent trails and clouds hovering all around you. Gosaikunda lake is very pious to the Hindus and holds a significant place in the Hindu culture, and the Shaivism and Shakt followers. The lake is believed to be created by Lord Mahadev himself, with his magnificent trident or Trishul, as called by the Hindus. The next day takes you to the most strenuous part of the Gosaikunda trek, with trekking until you reach Ghopte. You pass across many other pristine lakes, watching the engulfing beauty of these bulged out lakes. Then we stop at Mangengoth, Kutumsang, Chisapani, Sunderijal and then back to Kathmandu. Gosaikunda trek is a beautiful trek with a lot of cultural and natural significance. This serene trek will soothe you well for may upcoming adventures in life.
