Lantang Pilgrimage Trek is a short and adventurous trek in Nepal, located at an altitude of about 4361 meters. This pilgrimage trek takes you to the holy lakes of Gosainkunda. This trek cuts across high passes and is surrounded by mountains with magical landscapes in view.

Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trekking is commonly known as Frozen Lake. It is a short and adventurous trek in Nepal. This trek cuts across high passes and is surrounded by mountains with magical landscapes in view. Trekkers love to go to this region as it is situated at an elevation of 4300 m.

Not only have the trekkers, but people with religious aspects also visited this region in huge numbers. Without a doubt, Gosainkunda is regarded sacred place for shamans, the traditional doctors as well as for both Hindus and Buddhists. It is believed that once you bathe in this holy lake all your pain, sorrows and sins will be washed off.

Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trek in Nepal, known for its spectacular and breathtaking scenic beauty is one of the best trekking destinations in the world. Though Langtang region is very close to Kathmandu it is still able to preserve the beauty and remoteness it is known for. Commonly known as the frozen lake instead of its religious importance trekkers visit here because of the beauty and adventure it serves at the height of 4,300m.

The trail which winds around the dense forest of rhododendrons, oak, and bamboo, and the beautiful settlement of Tamang and Sherpa ultimately lead us to the divine lake of Gosainkunda and the alpine yak pasture of Kyanjin Gompa from where the mountain panorama is spectacular.

North of Kathmandu valley there lays Ganesh Himal and Langtang Lirung. Nestled at the foot of these Himalayan ranges is a beautiful, secluded, valley filled with nature’s bounty – the Gosainkunda Frozen Lake Trekking. Here the rare red pandas lurk in dense lichen-draped rhododendron thickets, and hears of blue sheep graze the alpine meadows and glaciated valleys amidst a scenery of lofty Himalayan peaks.

From Kyanjin Gompa we will have a chance to climb a ridge on Tserko Ri Peak (5033m) or hike to the foot of Langshisa glacier, for an incredible view of glaciers, icefalls, and snow fields surrounded on all sides by high mountains. On the way return, we will hike up to the holy Gosainkunda Trek lakes and Laurebenayak pass where the Home of Lord Shiva according to Hindu Mythology.

At Gosainkunda, we will able to see more than 5 lakes which lie over 4200 meters. The region of Langtang and Gosainkunda although easily approached from Kathmandu is far less trekked than the Annapurna or Everest areas making it all the more attractive. A wonderful walk through a naturalist’s trail. There are nine other lakes surrounding the Gosainkunda and once a year in August, the festival of Janai Purnima, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims gather here during the Full Moon to take a holy bath in the lake.

Moderate to Strenuous trekking and lodging between 2000m and 4,380m with one pass crossing of 4,610m and optional hiking to 5,033m on Tserko Ri Peak. Accommodations in comfortable lodges run by local families. The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu and includes all meals, services of an experienced trek guide, and porters to carry luggage. Clients carry a day pack only and walk at their own pace.
