Gosaikunda holds a special significance for Hindus throughout the subcontinent. According to Hindu mythology, the lake was formed when Lord Shiva used his trishul (trident) to dig for water after he had consumed the poison to save the universe after Samundra Manthan (churning of the seas). Hindus still consider the place to be the abode of Lord Shiva and Gauri. Despite the geographical aloofness and the difficult terrain leading up to the lake, the religious importance of the place has continued to grow. Thousands of pilgrims who make the trip to Gosaikunda every year show the reverence people have towards the place.

Gosaikunda Lake Tour will take you along one of the lesser traveled but equally satisfying trip. You will make your way through some serious uphill climbs but the spectacular mountains that loom large over the sparsely populated villages, the amazing people you will meet along the way, the rich vegetation, the breathtaking landscape and, last but not the least, the stunning Gosaikunda lake itself will make the arduous journey to the lake more than worth it.
