This trek is about 4360 meters of elevation. 


    Trekking across the Gosaikunda Lake may be difficult for trekkers, who may not experience difficulties until they reach Cholangapti, where there is little vegetation and poor oxygen. The hardest part of the Gosaikunda Lake trek is undoubtedly the Gosaikunda lake itself. This trek demands you to climb a steep mountain that hugs the mountain's edge. This is where your journey will be most difficult and demanding.

    You have to walk for around 5-6 hours daily during the trip which can be pretty exhausting for beginners. So be prepared for the trek and enjoy all the beautiful scenery and folklore.

    Some of the beautiful and endangered animals like the red panda, and the shy mammal species Habre, a leopard can be found in this national park. The scenic view of the mountains and charismatic animals might be really attractive.

    Kyanjin Gompa nepalThis trekking trail passes through a series of Tamang settlements. Exploring Tamang culture and religious values can be done by talking with friendly local people. There are local monasteries and one of them is Sing Gompa. Locals call it Chandanbari which is a historical monastery.

    This holy site is visited by pilgrims during the festival of Janai Purnima and Gangadashara. This holy lake has enormous importance for Hindu and Buddhist people. According to Hindu mythology, Hindu deities descend on this lake during the auspicious Janai Purnima so taking a dip in this pond will take you closer to the divine deities and wash your sins all away. 

    From observing endangered animals to enjoying the folk culture and tradition this trip can be an opportunity to be away from stress and enjoy nature for a while. 

    Difficulties in Gosaikunda Trek

    Yeah we can all say that trekking is a great experience and if it comes to Gosaikunda we might have different experiences and difficulties we have faced. Some of the problems are mentioned below which are quite relevant to other trekking routes as well.

    Altitude Sickness 

    The condition known as hypoxia occurs when there is a lack of oxygen in the environment. In other words, altitude sickness is the condition that develops when your body does not receive enough oxygen and your body reacts differently.

    Altitude sickness is not a new word among trekkers and climbers. From an elevation, about 2500 meters above sea level, oxygen level starts to decrease along with the environment level. The main problem of altitude sickness arises due to maximum height gain within a short span of time making it difficult for people to trek and not gain the proper amount of oxygen. 

    Altitude sickness might not be so hazardous if dealt with in the correct way. But this can lead to an emergency situation if not treated properly. 

    The symptoms might vary from getting a cold, headache, dizziness, tiredness, loss of appetite, and a slight rise in heart rate leading to ultimate death. These conditions can be faced if certain things are kept in mind;

    • First and most importantly it is necessary to walk slowly if you observe symptoms. 
    • Trekkers are required to carry garlic, ginger, and other medical objects 
    • Drinking water and keeping the body hydrated is a must.  
    • Avoid any kinds of alcohol drinking and smoking
    • Eating high calories and energy provides food. 
    • Make sure to acclimatize and return to lower-level while sleeping. 
    • If this can cure you then it's good but if the condition gets worse then you might take proper medical help.  

    So these are some of the primary tips to make sure to prevent you from altitude sickness. Do not panic and have patience. You can always take medical help if necessary. 

    Leech Problems 

    Since it is a holy place people specially visit it during the festival of Janai Purnima which falls during the rainy season in Nepal. Trekkers during the monsoon season might be difficult for some people, as it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful times of year in Nepal. You could encounter leeches while trekking, which can suck your blood and lead to potentially deadly consequences if you don't recognize them early on.

    They attack from water sources and even from trees. So we might want to know what can be done to prevent them? Most of them use their fingers to remove the leech from your feet but you might want to know about being safe from them.

    • Use raw tobacco-soaked water on your shoes, socks, pants, and clothes.  
    • Apply salt rather than pulling leech for less bleeding. 
    • Tuck your clothes inside the pants to keep them from getting out of your clothes. 
    • Keep walking and rest only in sunny and dry places. 

    Gosaikunda lake: Religious Merits and Beliefs

    Gosaikunda is one of the venerated places of Nepal for both Hindu and Buddhist people. This lake carries many facts and beliefs you might not be aware of.

    The sacred lake is oligotrophic and remains almost unspoiled, with a maximum depth of 4380 meters. This body of water has been given the name 'Samundra Manthan' or ocean churning in Hindu mythology. Lord Shiva is said to have pierced a glacier with his "Trishul" when he had digested the poison, creating the lake and making it the home of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati.

    Janai Purnima and Gangadashara are two Nepali festivals that attract a large number of visitors, especially from the Indian community. It is thought that bathing in the Gosaikunda during Janai Purnima washes our sins away. It is thought that the river Ganga has been sitting on the ground since Gangadashara.

    Trekking to gosaikunda

    According to mythology, bathing in the river, Ganga, or any other sacred lake and worshipping the goddess will help to get rid of sins. This day is called Dushera because of the destruction of ten sins. Ten sins fall under three main categories: physical, mental, and verbal which are destroyed by virtual deeds performed during the same day. 

    Even this lake holds equal importance for Buddhist people. According to local Tamang people, most Buddhist people visit the lake to pray for the departed souls of their loved ones for their betterment and wellbeing in the afterlife. On the precursory night of Janai Purnima, a parade of Jhankris marks their way towards the lake singing songs and chanting hymns throughout the way. 

    The cave is named in honour of Amar Singh Thapa, the Nepali commander of the western front during the Anglo-Nepal War, who went to Gosaikunda and breathed his last breath on his trip. A cave in the area is dedicated to him as an expression of gratitude for his service to our nation.

    Best Time to visit Gosaikunda Lake

    This magnificent and holy place is getting famous for its domestic trekking route. People might wonder when will be the best time to trek the magnificent lap of the Himalayan range.

    So the four distinct seasons Winter, Summer, Autumn, and Spring mark the weather chart of Nepal. But the best time to visit is during spring and autumn for the trek. During this season you will be able to explore the panoramic vision of mountains and folklore. 

    In the month of April, you may see the alpine vegetation and local flora and fauna in abundance. A forest covered in pink and other hues, with pine and alpine aroma, can fascinate you.

    The weather remains warm with temperatures ranging from 18 to 25 degrees celsius. The temperature is moderate for your walk. During the summer season, the average temperature ranges from 22 to 33-degree Celsius and since it is monsoon season there might be rainfall of 400 to 500mm per month. 

    trekking in nepal

    Nature comes much more distinct during the summer season; the surroundings are filled with green and natural beauty. This might be a unique trekking experience getting a pleasant view of pasture land and mountains. 

    The Autumn season is also considered to be the best when it comes to trekking. In the window period between October and November, the average temperature is between 20 to 28 degrees celsius. This is a moderate temperature which will be an ideal season for a trek with stable weather conditions. 

    The clear blue skies offer a marvellous view of the Langtang mountain range along with other small hills and mountains. In the winter during December you might get to enjoy the snow but the trails get slippery so you might have a hard time trekking.
