    Its enticing beauty in the serenity of mountains and ridges has made Gosaikunda one of the most popular and sought-after lake of Nepal. The Gosaikunda lake is located at an altitude of about 4380 m. It is surrounded by mountains on almost all sides and a great ensemble of nine other lakes accompany the Goisaikunda. Every year during Janai Purnima in August, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims visit for a holy bath in the lake. The large rock at the centre of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine and it is also claimed that the channel carries water from the lake directly to the tank at the Kumbheshwar temple in Patan, in Kathmandu valley.

    From Syabru, the trails generally ascend across forests. On the way, you will also come across a monastery and a cheese factory. Above here, the trail climbs through tall fir stands before emerging above the tree line for increasingly panoramic views of the high peaks and finally entering the barren upper reaches of the Trishuli river, where glacial moraines and rockslides have left a string of half a dozen lakes.
