Langtang Goshainkunda Trek

Langtang Gosaikunda trek starts after 9 hours driving from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. A little further up the valley is Langtang Village which was sweep away by Earthquake on 25th April 2015 and rebuild now and Kyanjin Gompa, where we stop overnight and test the local yak cheese. We pass through Nubamatang, nestled in a hidden valley, on our way up to view the glaciers, which mark the gateway into Tilman col, a high mountaineering route to Jugal Himal that crosses a steep and difficult icefall on the south side. We also can hike to Kyanjing Ri or Tsergo Ri (Cherko Ri) which offer spectacular views of Naya Kanga (5,846m), Ponggen Dopku (5,930m), Mt Langtang Lirung (7245m ), Yala peak, Dorje Lakpa(6966m), Urkeinmang (6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979) and Kangchenpo. Backtracking, we travel through Syabru village and SingGompa to a high plateau, where the sacred lake Gosainkund is located. Gosaikunda lake is also known as Nilkantha Kunda . Gosaikund Lake has a black rock in the middle, said to be the head of Shiva. according to legend, Shiva created this high altitude lake when he pierced a glacier with his trident (Trishul) to obtain water to quench his thirst after consuming poison gathered from the churning of the oceans ( the poison is the reason why Shiva is depicted with a blue throat). There is a white rock under the water which is said to be the remnant of an ancient Shiva shrine. It is also said that the water from this lake disappears underground via a subterranean channel and surfaces in Kumbeshwar pool, next to the Five-Storey Shiva temple in Patan, more than 60km away. Thousands of people come here to worship and bathe during the full moon festival each August. Crossing the Laurebena Pass (4610m), we continue south, leaving the Langtang region behind us as we travel through the Helambu valley. From here, it’s just a few days trek back to Kathmandu.
