Overview

GOSAINKUNDALangtang Gosaikunda and Helambu trek in combination of both Langtang and Helambu Valley via the Gosaikunda lakes. Believed to created by lord Shiva in search of water to dilute the burn from poison which he accepted to drink as god’s share from the great ocean churn by the Devas ( gods ) and Rakshasas ( demons ) in the Hindu mythology, it is a major pilgrimage site for the Hindu / Buddhist populace of Kathmandu Valley. Every year during the full moon month of August thousands of people from the Valley make their first trek of their life to bathe in the holy waters of the Gosaikunda lakes. Accompanying the devotees, a great number of Dhami and Jhankris ( Shaman / Witch Doctors ) dressed in long white dresses, peacock feather crown, line of bells worn around
shoulders and playing a big drum with an ‘S’ shaped stick also flock to the holy lakes to appease lord Shiva and gain more spiritual power to heal illnesses.

We begin this trek with a drive to Syabrubenshi from where we first trek in to the Langtang Valley. After exploring the Langtang Valley we trace back our footsteps to Syabru from here a higher trail climbs up for the Gosaikunda lakes passing through Shingompa, a site of a monastery and cheese factory. Next to Shingompa we arrive at the lakes where we see three lakes at 4,100m/13,348ft and 4,380m/14,366ft.and then cross the 4,610m/ 15,120ft high pass of Lauribina ( where pilgrims throw their walking stick on their return to home from Gosaikunda).
