Gosainkunda Lake trekking falls within the Langtang National Park. It is a journey to the sacred Gosainkunda Lake situated at an altitude of 4300m. Revered by both Buddhists and Hindus, the lake is visited by hundreds of pilgrims during full moon in August.

Gosainkunda lake is part of folk culture of Tamang community who are the chief inhabitants of this area. It is believed that the lake was visited by Guru Rimponche during his travel to Tibet and drank of its water to relieve of food poisoning. Similar mythological references are attributed to Hindu God Shiva who is supposed to lie prostrate under the water. Tamang Shamans from all over the surrounding villages make a special pigrimmage in their traditional garb, beating their traditional drums (Dhyangro) as a way to invoke their gods.

The journey involves crossing Laurebina pass (4609m), the highest pass in Langtang region that offers spectacular views of Langtang Himalayan ranges such as Langtang Lirung (7250m), Dorje Lakpa (6988m), Yala, Langshisha etc. You will also visit sacred Kyangin Gomba and Shing Gomba along with Langtang Village which was devastated during the April 2015 earthquake.
