Gosaikunda Lake Trek for families traverse via Lauribinayak-La Pass, 10 Days

Days: 10 / Difficulty: 3 of 5 (Moderate to strenuous)

Beautiful lakes, majestic mountains, rivers, and deep forests, this is what your child will enjoy during the Gosainkunda Lake Trek. Lying in the Langtang Region, Gosainkunda is certainly the epitome of natural magnificence while also being one of the holy lakes in Nepal, which is visited by throngs of pilgrims every year. An ecstatic view of the turquoise lake surrounded by the snow-capped mountains will certainly make your child a storyteller. 

The Gosainkunda Trek via Lauribinayak Pass is a beautiful journey in the foothills of the gorgeous Langtang Himal range. The cheerful "Namaste" from every passer-by will be common as you trek. The frequent sights of yaks, mules, donkeys, chicken, and horses tell your children that animals are not just found in the zoo. Also, the colorful rhododendron forests blooming with pink, red, and white flowers will certainly brighten up your child's day. As the spectacular views of the Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, and Dorje Lakpa ranges lead us to the tranquil Gosainkunda, your family can relish the pristine beauty of the Himalayan foothills. Hindu mythology says that after Lord Shiva drank poison to save the Universe, he struck his trident to release a burst of water known as Trishul Dhara, which is the source of Gosainkunda. This trek thusly allows your children to get an insight of the Nepalese folklore and culture. Apart from this, the trail takes you across Lauribinayak Pass (4610m) and past several Tamang and Hyolmo villages, allowing your children to make friends with the locals. The people, already hospitable, will be more warm and welcoming to your children hence providing you an opportunity to learn about their way of life. Throughout the trek, you can carve in many memories which you can cherish for a lifetime.
