Nepal > Langtang > Gosainkunda Lake Trekking

Gosainkunda Lake lies in Langtang region. Gosainkunda, the holy lake has gained its reputation among both the Hindus and the Buddhists. The lake is visited every year by thousands of visitors during the full- moon night in August. Hindu mythology says- when the God churned the primordial ocean to produce elixir of eternal life, the poison was also produced along with the elixir. To save the universe from this poison, Lord Shiva drank it. Hence, the throat of Lord Shiva is still blue due to the effect of the poison. To cool down his burning throat, Lord Shiva struck his trident into the rock creating three springs which ultimately resulted in the formation of beautiful lakes. Finally, Lord Shiva drank the water of the lakes and got rid of the pain. Hence, in this process, the lake Goshaikunda was formed.
