Gosainkunda trekking can be done in less than four days, but due to the rapid ascent to high elevation i.e. 4610m it is considered best to be done after acclimatizing in Langtang or Helambu. Gosaikunda holds a lot of religional value and is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva. The legend holds that Lord Shiva, saved the world by drinking a dangerous poison, to cool his burning throst due to poison he struck this mountainside with his trisul to create the lake .Devotees usually make a trip to Gosaikunda during Janai Purnima a full moon festival in August to take purifying ritual bath.
The trek begins from either Dhunche or Thulo Syaphru ascending steep trial through mossy rhododendron forest to the monastery and cheese factory of Shing Gompa at 3250m. The first route that is the climb from Dhunche is particularly difficult. Laurebinayak is another beautiful place to stop by, before one enters the barren upper reaches of the Trisuli River where glacial moraines and rockslides have created some half-dozen lakes (kunda).
