Langtang Gosaikunda Trek takes in two popular trek destinations "Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda (Frozen Lake)" Langtang Valley is famous as the Valley of Glaciers. Here you will get a close-up view of the mountain called Langtang Lirung (7246 m), visit the glaciers, walk under the grass, and on the meadows. Gosainkunda is one of the sacred mountain lakes situated at an altitude of 4460 meters above sea level. Both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims gather around this lake every year, especially on the full moon day of August. They believe that if they have a bath with the water of this lake, then they will be saved from all the sins of that year.
It takes about 45 minutes to circumambulate Gosaikunda Lake. Langtang Gosaikunda trekking starts Syabru Besi (Around 7 hours drive from Kathmandu).
