Why Gosainkunda & Langtang Valley Trek?
This area is popular for high Himalaya lakes which are mostly related to Hindu & Buddhist mythology. There are 108 lakes around this area with small to medium in size. One of the most popular lakes in this area which is over 4,300m above the sea level and also delineated as a religious site it is a Hindu myth attributes Gosaikunda as the abode of the Hindu deities Shiva and his wife Gauri.
The Hindu scriptures Bhagwat Purana, Bishnu Purana and the epics Mahabharat & Ramayana refer to Samundra Mathan(Ocean shake), which is directly related to the origin of Gosaikunda. The waters here are considered as holy and of particular significance during the Janai Purnima. Janai Purnima (Full Moon in August) is the festival when thousands of pilgrims from Nepal and India visit the area.
Gosaikunda is believed to be created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trishul (Trident) into a mountain to extract water so that he could cool his stinging throat after he had swallowed poison. He had swallowed poison to protect undying (Immortal) syrup from the devil. It is believed that Lord Shiva had realized freshness after drinking this water and that is why the Hindu pilgrimage tries to climb here to have a shower.
And Langtang valley is another attraction for this trip. It always offers great views of Langtang Himalaya and Tibetan influenced society within Langtang valley where you can see Himalayan yaks around Langtang & Kyanjin Gompa area. Your trekking ends at Syabrubesi then drive to Kathmandu.
