Trip Overview

Gosainkunda Trekking Trip Map

Gosainkunda is the divine place of all Hindu peoples. It consists of many holy lakes at an altitude of 4,380m. People believe that the holy water of the lake washes off their sins. Thousands of people trek to this glacial lake every year to meet their cultural as well as natural need. The trek passes through the varied landscapes and green forest ranging from subtropical to alpine environment, terraced fields, waterfalls, streams, hills and super scenic mountains view.
