There are 108 lakes in this area and Goshaikund is the famous and most important religious places of pilgrimage, which is situated at an altitude of about 4380m. Surrounded by high mountains on the north and east, this lake is grand and picturesque. The lake remains frozen for six months in winter October to June.There are other nine famous lakes such as Saraswati, Bhairav, Sourya and Ganesh Kunda. Every year during Janai Purnima in August, thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here to lake holy bathe in the lake. The lake is believed to have formed from the digging of the land by the Trishul (holy three-pointed sword) of lord Shiva after he drank the poison from Samudramanthan and desperately wanted cold water to quench the overwhelming heat of the poison. The large rock in the center of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine and it is also claimed that channel carries water from the lake directly to the tank at the Kumbheshwar Temple in Patan, 60 km to the south.

Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

Nepal Climate information

Nepal is a landlocked country which lies in Hindu Kush Himalayan region. Nepal has monsoonal climate having four main seasons: spring, summer, monsoon, autumn and winter.

Below is a general guide to conditions at different seasons:
January to March (winter): In this season temperature will decrease at often 0°C (32°F) at night, with extreme cold at high elevations. It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
October to December (autumn): These months are cool and clear which is due to the end of monsoon, there is little dust in the air so this is the best season to visit the hilly and mountainous regions.

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek

Gosaikunda Lake trek 2016!

(5/5)

I’ve heard about the Gosaikunda Lake trek from some of my Nepali friends living here from quite a long time ago so I thought of doing the trek. I thought of doing the trek with Actual Adventure and contacted Kedar the response was good and very quick. I need not had to bargain about the price because it was very reasonable. They had managed everything on my arrival I received a very warm welcome the accommodation was luxurious and perfect in Kathmandu and foods were awesome.  The guide Pasang managed the best available lodges even during the trek. The people were very friendly, polite and caring. I trekked during the Hindu festival of Janaipurnima so I get chance to interact with many pilgrims on the way. The roads were beautifully decorated with evergreen forests and so many beautiful Lakes on the way. Pasang was always there for help and was a great company to travel with. I am happy with the company and their service. I suggest this company to everyone for a remarkable trekking experience. 

Everest and Lagtang trekking - Dec 2010

(5/5)

I have recently traveled to Nepal and would like to share some information about a very trustworthy company (actual adventure) run by Kedar Neupane, managing director. ( Actual Adventure phone +977-01-4417579 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting              +977-01-4417579      end_of_the_skype_highlighting, email:  kedar@nepalvillagetrek.com). I have used their services on a number of occasions during my Everest and Langtang Trek as well as during my stay in Kathmandu. Kedar is one of the most trustworthy and dependable people I met in Nepal. He is willing to arrange anything for their clients from trecking, flight reservations, hotel or climbing through buying electrical converters, maps or equipment rental. He is competent , honest and pleasant to work with. I recommend Actual Adventure company for all your needs in Nepal.
