Gosaikunda Lake and Helambu Trek traverse Lauribinayak-La Pass, 10 Days

Days: 10 / Difficulty: 3 of 5 (Moderate to strenuous)
Min Group Size: 1 / Max Group Size: 12

Beautiful lakes, majestic mountains, rivers, and deep forests, this is what you will enjoy during the Gosainkunda Lake and Helambu 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 you a storyteller. 

The Gosainkunda Lake and Helambu 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. 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, you 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 you 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 you to make friends with the locals. The people, already hospitable, will be more warm and welcoming to you 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.
