Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass Trek is a relatively shorter trek with adventurous journey in the Langtang region of Nepal. Comprised of pristine holy and spiritual lakes, challenging uphill and downhill climbs, introduction with the lifestyle and culture of nomadic and indigenous people, eye-dazzling panoramas of the Himalayas in the setting, gushing waterfalls, lavish bushes and a lot more.

Mostly, the trail is jam-packed with pilgrims visiting the divine Gosaikunda Lake, either they are fellows of Hinduism or Buddhism. Whereas, with the discovery of high altitude passes and ridges like Lauribina Pass (4,610m), the trail has become a topnotch choice for adventurer seekers as well.

Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass trek begins with a scenic drive up to the traditional and culturally enriched Dhunche village. Various folkloric groups like Tamang, Sherpa and Gurung who are mostly inspired by the Tibetan lifestyle and culture resides there. Walking ahead thru bushes and alongside the river, enjoying the picturesque sceneries of the cascading hills, snow-clad peaks, and the blooming of Rhododendron forest as well as several other species of vegetations, we will crawl our way to Chandanbari/Shin Gompa before heading towards Gosaikunda. Then we follow the route towards the pilgrimage site of Gosaikunda, our main destination.

There are several other trivial lakes viz. Saraswatikunda, Bhairav Kunda and others nearby Gosaikunda. There is a myth that Lord Shiva himself built Gosaikunda with his trident to get relief from the poison that he put into his throat to save the world from its severe consequences. Then we pass through Lauribina pass, Ghopte, Tharepati Pass, Kutumsang and Chisapani for next couple of days before driving back towards Kathmandu via Sundarijal.

In the meantime, we will be blessed to take a closer look at the dwindling herbs, vegetations, and wildlife and birds in the Langtang National Park. The national park was a delimited area prior to 19th due to the security threats from the neighbouring nations. And to enhance the preservation of endangered species, it is a protected area which is allowed to visit only with a special permit from the Government of Nepal.

Besides, the remote and rural lowland settlements and the authentic lifestyle of the locals are the major attractions of Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass Trek. Ancient and historical monasteries, prayer flags and other Buddhist culture representing arts and monuments will rejoice you during the tiring uphill and downhill climbs. In a short duration of time, you can explore all these and reach to the highlands.

Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass Trek is appropriate for those about to tackle all the challenges and loves exploring with adventures; in relatively less time. Nevertheless, the trekkers should possess previous experience of trekking along with proper physical fitness and regular exercising routines in order to go this arduous trek. As well as, a highly experienced professional trekking guide is also mandatory for this trek. Nepal Mountain Trekkers involve a team of guides belonging to that region and are highly experienced as well as licensed by the Government of Nepal.

There are no boundaries of time for embarking on Gosaikunda Lauribina Pass Trek but for the proper trekking experience and achievement of satisfaction, we recommend to trek in the months of autumn or spring. It is because of the favourable weather, vivid sceneries and blossoming of flora and fauna, especially Rhododendron. As well as, during winter and rainy seasons, the trail gets more complicated as well as cold and slippery.
