Gosainkunda pass Trekking

Gosainkunda pass trekking is an amazing, short trek in the relatively quite area of the Langtang region. You will be amazed at how remote this area feels, seeing far fewer trekkers than other more populous areas such as the Annapurna or Everest regions. This trek is pure Himalayan magic and all just a day's journey from Kathmandu.

The Gosainkunda pass trek takes in the stunningly beautiful holy lakes of the Gosiankund, which are considered holy by both Hindus and Buddhists alike. Many Hindus make the pilgrimage to bathe in the lakes during the August full moon festival of Janai Purnima.

Heading over the Laurebinayak pass we then head down through steep terraced countryside to the Shivapuri National Park, just north of Kathmandu. The area is home to Tamang, Newari and Chhetri people and is a wonderful example of Nepal's harmonious ethnic diversity.

In such a short space of time the Gosainkunda pass trek is a real gem, combining peaceful trails, majestic Himalayan scenery, a high pass, breathtakingly beautiful, pristine sacred lakes and a warm welcome from the famously hospitable local population. The Gosainkund pass trek allows you, the lucky trekker, to immerse yourself in this under rated trekking area and explore the exceptional beauty on offer!
