GOSAIKUNDA TREK

For many hundreds' of years pilgrims worldwide have trekked to this region to pay religious respect at many of the 100 glacial fed lakes of Lord Shiva and other Deities. The lakes are situated at about 4400m and is said that Lord Shiva, after drinking the poisons of the world, drove this three-pronged trident into the earth to drink pure water to quench his thirst. This amazing adventure combines the diversity of spectacular views of the Himalayas with a vast number of exciting ethnic encounters. The highlights of Langtang Circuit trek are numerous. From rhododendron and bamboo forests with an abundance of wildlife, majestic waterfalls flowing over mammoth boulders, a chance to bathe in soothing hot springs, magnificent views of the snow covered white giant Langtang Lirung (7,200m/23,622ft) and finally witnessing the ethereal beauty of the holy lakes of Gosaikunda in the winter. A truly remarkable winter experience in Nepal!

  • In the high mountains of Nepal, the maximum daytime temperature low down on our trip will be around 15°C, with night-time lows way below 0°C. At high altitude, the sun has a very strong effect and at the height of the day it will feel hotter than the indicated temperatures. We do not expect rain in that weather and can usually expect stable, weather. However, mountains do generate their own weather systems and some rain or wind cannot be ruled out at anytime.

Is this Holiday for you ?

The trek is not a technically difficult undertaking. However, the high altitudes involved during the trek (between 3500 and 440 meters) and the cold of Himalayas, the temperature will go below freezing after sunset. You will be advised by the UFO guide to rest and keep your body hydrated as much as possible on the first day of arrival. Your oxygen levels will be monitored from time to time to check on the level of acclimatization. There is a fair walking to be done every day, and we would encourage you to do a bit of walking/running and breathing exercises. A good level of fitness will be required to enjoy this trek.
