Gosaikunda's origins may be traced back to the Ramayana and Mahabharata epics, which allude to the lake as Samundra Manthan. According to Hindu mythology, Gosaikunda is the abode of the Hindu gods Shiva and Gauri. The water of Gosaikunda is considered holy, and people from all across Nepal and India go to the site during the Hindu festivals of Gangadashahara and Janai Purnima. The lake is thought to have developed after Lord Shiva sank his Trishul (Shiva's Trident) into the mountain to collect water to soothe his burning throat after swallowing poison. Pilgrims believe that drinking water from Gosainkunda Lake will protect their bodies from damage for the rest of their lives.
The greatest way to appreciate the magnificence of the entire Gosaikunda region is to take a Gosaikunda helicopter tour. Because the flight departs from Kathmandu, you will be treated to spectacular aerial views of the entire Kathmandu valley as well as the surrounding lush hills. Slowly, the plane rises, revealing a vista of the Himalayas rising over the foothills. You'll be mesmerized by the overhead views of the hills, rivers, cannons, communities, cultural and historical landmarks, and ponds. The aerial views of the hills and clouds surrounding the valley are the highlight of the flight. The rest of the flight is incredible.
The treeless slopes gradually appear, followed by a series of oligotrophic aquamarine lakes. The Gosaikunda area is known for its treeless hills. The snow-capped Himalayas dominated the background above the treeless hills in the north. We land near the GosaiKunda, or Gosai Pond, and begin exploring the gorgeous Gosaikunda area, as well as visiting several surrounding linked lakes. If you are a pilgrim who wants to pray and worship, there is also time set out for Havan Puja. Before flying back, we eat breakfast in a nearby village, having gained a once-in-a-lifetime experience and capturing the grandeur of Gosaikunda's remote and holy region.
