Overview

Gosaikunda Trek is one of the spectacular and breathtaking scenic beauty treks. This trek provides the opportunity to explore the famous Langtang region and know about the ethnic settlements in the region. The trekking to Gosainkunda takes you through the high alpine zone.

After passing a few huts in the high picture then we cross the Laurebina La pass followed by a small ridge adorned with Buddhist prayer flags. It is a popular trekker’s destination due to its mesmerizing natural attractiveness along with the kind and friendly civilization of Tamang, and Sherpa.

About Gosaikunda Trek

The Gosainkunda Trek is a popular trek in Nepal that takes you through the Langtang National Park and the Gosainkunda Lake region. The trek starts in the town of Dhunche, which is about a 7-hour drive from Kathmandu, and follows a route through the Langtang Valley, passing through forests, meadows, and high mountain passes. The highlight of the trek is the visit to Gosainkunda Lake, a holy lake for Hindus, which is located at an altitude of 4380 meters.

The trek can be done in about a week, but many people choose to spend more time in the region to allow for more exploration and acclimatization. The best time to do the Gosainkunda Trek is from September to November and from March to May, when the weather is generally clear and dry. It is possible to do the trek at other times of the year, but the weather can be more unpredictable, and some trails may be inaccessible due to snow.

Gosaikunda Trek Difficulty

The Gosainkunda Trek is a moderate to challenging trek that offers a unique combination of natural beauty, cultural immersion, and high-altitude adventure. Along the way, trekkers can enjoy the local culture and hospitality of the Tamang people, who are the indigenous residents of the region. The trek is also an excellent opportunity to see a variety of flora and fauna, including rhododendron forests and rare species of birds and animals.

Best time for trekking to Gosaikunda Trek

In the spring (February / March to May/ June) when the rhododendrons, the national flower of Nepal, are in bloom. Also in the fall (September to November / December) or post-monsoon when the weather is temperate and the skies are clear.
