About Gosaikunda Trek

Gosainkunda Trek is popular for its majestic beauty. The site gained importance due to mythological beliefs too. Numerous lakes accompanied by several snow-capped peaks make this trip awesome.

According to legends, Lord Shiva drank lethal poison and collected it in his throat. The poison was the outcome during the process of churning elixir in the ocean. Entire world was threatened by the poison and to save the world from its impact Lord Shiva drank it. Due to the burning of poison he arrived at the area of Langtang where he struck his trident (Trishul) and that formed Gosainkunda, Saraswatikunda and Bhairabkunda. He drank water form Gosainkunda and was relived from the burning. There are108 lakes in this area. The size of lakes varies from small to medium.
