Essential Information

Discover the spiritual significance of Gosaikunda Lake (4,380m/14,370ft) in Nepal's Langtang region. This freshwater lake holds immense religious importance for both Hindus and Buddhists and was even declared a Ramsar site in 2007. According to Hindu mythology, the lake is the sacred abode of God Shiva and Gauri. Legend has it that the lake was formed when Shiva thrust his trident into the mountain to extract water to drink. On Janai Purnima, the full moon day in August, pilgrims from around the world gather here to worship and take a dip in the holy lake. Small shrines and stupas are scattered around the lake, adding to its serene and spiritual ambiance.
