Gosainkunda - Helambu Trek

Gosainkund- Helambu TrekkingGosaikunda is one of the hindu holy place and is considerd to be made by Lord Shiva. The Buddhist Tamang that lives nearby also reveres it as their holy place. Every August on full moon night, lake is thronged with pilgrims for a big festival. On other days the lake sits in a tranquil atmosphere.

Helambhu is the most easily accessible of all areas from Kathmandu. It lies about 70k.m north of Kathmandu valley, is an area inhabited by sherpas. The language, culture and dress of the Helambu sherpas are very different from those of Solu khumbu sherpas. The forests of Helambhu region and Langtang area are prime example of temperate and sub alpine vegetation. The dense oak and pine forests on the trail look fascinating. As usual, the rhododendrons form a spectacular display during the spring.

The people here are of Tibetan origin and call themselves Sherpa although they are quite distinct from the sherpas of Everest region both in language and customs. Also found in large numbers here are the Tamang people who also originated in Tibet but settled in Nepal considerably earlier than Sherpas.
