The very sacred Gosainkund Lake is situated in the Langtang National Park region of the Annapurnas. There are some 100 lakes in the area and they are the destination of thousands of Hindu Pilgrims during the month of August. The lake is also sacred to the Buddhist people.
The trek commences with a steep ascent but levels out for a relaxing trek through old growth forest. If the day is clear, you will have some spectacular views of the valley below and of the magnificent waterfalls cascading down the mountain ranges across the valley.
There is ample opportunity to see the vast array of flora and if you are quiet and observant, you may get to see some of the varied wildlife inhabiting the forest.
The trail will take you through some of the best native forest in Nepal. Through the canopy, you will get glimpses of LangtangLirung Peak (7246m).
