Our Langtang Gosaikunda Short Trek begins in Sundarijal and follows a splendid hiking trail as you cross rivers and forests, and walk mostly uphill before you reach the holy lakes. According to Hindu mythology, the holy lakes of Gosainkund were created by Lord Shiva’s Trishul (three pointed weapon) so that he could drink it’s cold water and quench the heat that he felt in his throat after he drank poison from Samudra manthan.
This trek introduces the first time trekker to Nepal’s fine mountain ranges including the Langtang Himal. Besides a picturesque scenery, this trek also gives travelers an opportunity to observe the local people’s lives and culture. The Langtang region is the quietest of the main trekking regions and a favorite among our guides – close up mountain views and a good taste of rural life is what this region gives trekkers. Langtang is surprisingly quiet, that is, if you’ve been to the crowded Everest and Annapurna trekking regions.
