Also, people came here to worship and take a bath during the full moon festivals in each August.

Lake with greater faith

There is a myth of the formation of Gosaikunda Lake. A black resembles a sleeping Shiva in the eastern part of the lake and reflects the peoples’ faith. A popular myth says, Shiva created this high altitude lake when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to fulfill his thirst. Because he has consumed the poison gathered from the churning of the ocean. The result of consuming poison turns Shiva’s throat into blue. Similarly, there is a white rock under the water which is said to be the vestige of an ancient Shiva shrine. Furthermore, people also believe that the water from this lake goes underground through a subterranean channel but it surfaces in the Kumbeshwar pool in Patan.

Getting the trailhead

Gosaikunda Lake trek. begins at Syabrubensi. The town of Syabrubensi, located at the bank of Langtang drives,  is the trailhead of Langtang Gosainkunda Lake Trek.
