Gosainkunda Lake Trek

This trek is specially designed for Hindu Devotees however everyone who has an interest of Nepal festivals can do this trek. This trek is starting normally end of August to First week of September.

On the festival of Janai Purnima the most pious Hindu devotees who have time and can afford it, make a pilgrimage to Gosainkund, the mountain lakes which are regarded as sacred to Lord Shiva. A dip in the lakes on this day is believed to add considerably to a devotee’s stock of merit.

The scene of Gosainkund, located at elevation 4360 meters, north of Kathmandu and just south of the Langtang range, is quite exciting, and is well worth the climb (often through rain) up to the site. Traditional faith healers called jhankris, dressed in belted white robes and crowned with porcupine quills and peacock feathers, perform ritual dances to throbbing drumbeats night and day. Thousands of people from all over Nepal and parts of India gather in boisterous song, dance and earnest devotions, camping and cooking in make-shift shelters. Visitors are welcome. In the morning the lake’s edge turns red with vermillion powder and the air is impregnated with sweet incense. Devotees dip in the freezing waters and change their sacred threads.
