Overview of Gosaikunda Lake Trek- 8 days

Gosaikunda Lake Trek-8 days is a popular trekking route in the Langtang region of Nepal, renowned for its natural beauty and religious significance. Gosaikunda Lake is located 147 km north of Kathmandu in Langtang National Park. Inhabited by Tibetan migrants, Tamangs, and Sherpas people. Passing through the lush Rhododendrons forest, filled with conifers and oaks we will have plenty of opportunities to immerse ourselves in the natural surroundings and wildlife. The stunning mountain views of Langtang Lirung,(Alt 7230m) Yala Peak,(Alt 5530m) Gan Cheppu Himal range,(Alt 74220m) Nyakhang Peaks. (Alt 5840m) Gosainkunda Lake,(Alt 4330m) GaneshHimal range,(Alt7422m.) Manaslu ranges(Alt 8176 km) are of short enlists to this trek. The region is surrounded by 108 beautiful and still, lakes and Gosainkunda is one of them.

The region has Tibetan migrants with Sherpa inhabitants. Lhosar (January/February) and Dumji (June/July) are the main festivals celebrated by Sherpa. In the meantime in June and July, 1000 pilgrims visit Gosaikunda Lake. Dhami and jhakri, one of the oldest customs of the region, plunge Trishul (tri-sectional pointed metal made, an instrument), believed to be wielded by Lord Shiva) to pour water. The true cultural feel is at Langtang village. A wash with fluttering prayer flags, brightly painted chortens, many walls, and stones carved with the Tibetan mantra ‘Om Mani Padme Hum’. You will be sure to receive a gracious welcome from the yak herders.

After crossing the Gosaikunda Laurebina pass (4600m), we trek back via another route to this region. This course takes us back to Kathmandu via Kutumsang, Chisapani and finally Kathmandu

A special experience I never dreamt I would achieve… on crutches! On our visit to Pokhara my friend arranged a trip by jeep via the Tatopani hot springs, The World Heritage Town of Marpha, Jomsom 2700 meters to Mukinath Temple 3500 meters. This was all arranged with advice from Dinersh. Dinersh has looked after three of my dear friend’s four children. All who have been with him to Everest Base camp & various treks. These were all hugely successful & lead by Dinersh himself. We were not on a trek but his input & advice was invaluable. He found us an experienced driver, Kumar to take us on our mountain adventure. He was wonderful so kind & caring. Slightly unusual circumstances to consider was my injury. I was recovering from a complex fracture of the lower leg & ankle & on crutches! However, it was an amazing experience for me. I achieved far more than I ever expected & now have such precious memories. Through the advice from Dinersh & the careful consideration of our driver I cannot rate this company & all their contacts more highly. Throughout our travels in Nepal I have met such very special people. Dinersh & his team are very much a part of this special band. They were just “1st class”

Absolutely incredible experience! Highly recommend! I met Dinesh 13 years ago, when he was working as a Guide. I am so proud of him for setting up such an amazing company. During the booking phase of my Nepal trip Dinesh was always available to answer all my questions. He was so helpful. In March 2024 I headed to Nepal to complete the Mardi Himal trek. My Guide Chhabin and Porter Santosh from Nature Explore Trek made this such a wonderful experience for me. I always felt happy, safe and confident trekking with them. They were both so helpful and so kind. Dinesh personally met me at the airport to welcome me back to Nepal and was in contact with me throughout my stay. I would 100% recommend trekking with Nature Explore Trek. I am already very excited to return to Nepal and trek with them again, thank you so much for building amazing memories with me!

Excellent Langtang Trek My trek with Nature Explore in Langtang Valley was an unforgettable experience. Deepak, our guide, was knowledgeable, friendly, and ensured our safety throughout the journey. He responded well to our requests and was very proactive in meeting our needs. The scenic beauty of Langtang Valley is breathtaking, and the trek was well-organized. I highly recommend Nature Explore for anyone looking for an adventure in the Himalayas.

Trip to Muktinath and earlier Family Treks Dinesh has been a guide to my family over many years. Two daughters trekked to Everest Base camp. One returned for second trek. Son has done three separate treks, including the Annapurna Trail. He then took on ‘Dad’ and arranged a 4 day trip to Muktinath, with an excellent driver, Kumar. Everything thought through, including extra care re altitude sickness What an amazing Quality of Service my family and I have received from Dinesh and his company, Nature Explore over these many years, Inc. March 2024. I cannot recommend Dinesh more highly. Definitely 5Stars.

Once in a lifetime trip with a stellar crew This trip was hands-down one of the best trips I've ever been on. It was definitely challenging (~13,000 ft is no joke) but the food, the views, the hikes, the views, the company, did I mention the views, all of it was fantastic. Dinesh and his crew were amazing: they clearly have deep experience and training to be as safe and competent as they are, but they go the extra mile to make sure people are getting what they need, when they need it. If we go back to Nepal, you can be sure we'll be calling Dinesh.

Amazing trip to ABC I joined the trip solo, but made a bunch of amazing friends on this trip, and a lot of that is owed to Dinesh and his team of guides and porters helping us all along the way. They were warm and generous with every part of the trip. Dinesh was super thoughtful as he captured moments to be remembered, such as sunrise at Poonhill and ABC, and even our group yoga classes. I would love to go on another trek with the guides of Nature Explore

Wonderful and Trustworthy Guide Company Dinesh and his team were just wonderful! They were well organized throughout our trekking and were always nice and friendly. The hike was out of this world. The combination of amazing scenery, high elevation, physical and mental obstacles, beautiful souls in our group, delicious food, and expert guides created a special experience that will stay with us forever. We'll go back to Nepal for sure, and this time will be Everest base camp with Dinesh. 🤞

Best trek experience, best guides Thanks so much to Dinesh and his team for their warm, engaged, thoughtful and consistent assistance on our ABC trek this past October. There are a couple other reviews here of that trip and their wonderful support. I’ll add that Dinesh was available as well in addressing questions I had prior to the start of the trip to help put my mind at ease. From those moments going forward and through the entirety of the trip, I felt I was in good hands. Everything was well planned and communicated. Where there were surprises, they easily and calmly helped with a solution, such as when I’d somehow lost my rain layer mid-trip and they helped me set up a DIY trash bag rain layer which worked fantastic. Since many or most of us (~20 total) were new to high altitude hut-to-hut trekking there were of course a lot of expressed nerves about how things would go. The team’s support kept us at ease. Plus these guys were kind and funny. A pleasure to be around. A big thank you to them!
