The Langtang-Gosainkunda region is a collection of Sherpa Valleys north of Kathmandu, close to the Tibetan border. The rough road now reaches as far as Dhunche, only a day’s drive from Kathmandu. Yet, despite this, Langtang remains a relatively less trekked area. Bill Tilman, a famous explorer and climbing partner of Eric Shipton, described Langtang as one of the world’s most beautiful valleys. We exit by passing the holy lake of Gosainkunda and crossing the Laurebina La (4100m). Here, you will have excellent view into Tibet and meet Hindu pilgrims before gradually dropping down the ridges and driving back to Kathmandu.
The Gosaindkunda Lake itself embarks the landmark high altitude natural water reservoir. The wilderness and the fear of unknown while trekking on the faded trail would give your adrenaline the test on perseverance and excitement. The sacred lake for both Hindu and Buddhist followers shows you the exemplary lesson on the religious harmony among Nepalese people. The lake itself symbolizes the sacrifice for the cause of goodness. The Lord Shiva once drank the poison extracted from the Sea in order to save mankind who were about to get vanished by the poison. He felt enormous pain and stroked on the hills of Gosaikunda eventually forming the source of water for the Lake. The water he drank made him neutralize the pain and poison. Therefore, the lake is the symbol of eternal peace and sacrifice. Every year thousands of tourist domestic and international pay visit to this sacred place. For the unique experience of religion, harmony and nature the Langtang trek is highly recommended.
