Helambu Gosainkunda Trek

Helambu Gosainkunda trek is one of the most adventurous and thrilling experience for trekkers who wants to explore the beauty of nature with their bare eyes. The Trek offers mesmerizing and panoramic views of the Himalayan range like Mt Langtang range, Himal Chuli, Mt. Manaslu, and Annapurna Range. Furthermore, you can enjoy the beauty of nature with varied landscapes and green forest with fresh air. The trek takes you from a subtropical land to the alpine environment. Along with nature, you can experience the culture and tradition of various ethnic groups such as Tamang, Chhetri, Brahmins, and Newars living in Gosainkunda. The trek will cross through rhododendron forests, paddy fields, and terraces. The major attraction of the trek is the mesmerizing, holy, and the sparkling Gosainkunda Lake surrounded by other holy lakes such as Surya Kunda, Naag Kunda, and Bhairav Kunda. For religious purposes, the Hindu and Buddhist devotees visit this lake during the festival of Janai Purnima (The full Moon of August). Since the place is far away from the city in a height of 4380m you can only have decent food options and lodges along the trail. This trek is a moderate one with uphill climbs and narrow trails mostly within a green forest. As a whole, the Helambu Gosainkunda trek is a complete package for a trekking destination offering sparkling lakes, green forests, religious importance with the beautiful views of the Himalayas.  We would recommend you to experience this unforgettable trek if you are planning to visit Nepal.
