Gosaikunda is a holy lake for the Hindus. It is said to be created by Lord Shiva when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after consuming some poison. It is also believed that the water from this lake disappears underground and appears in Kumbeshwar pool, next to the five-storey Shiva Temple in Patan. Hundreds of worshippers travel here and bathe in the lake during the full moon festival each August. We explore this remote area with wonderful mountain views, admiring the Gosaikunda lake, crossing a pass at 4610m. We take in views of the Annapurnas, Manaslu (8156m), Ganesh Himal (7406m) and other unnamed peaks in Tibet and Langtang Lirung.
