Gosainkunda Frozen Lake is a freshwater lake in Nepal’s Langtang National Park, located at an altitude of about 4360m.The large rock at the center of the lake is said to be the remains of Shiva shrine. Gosaikunda Lake is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trishul (holy Trident) into a mountain to extract water so that he could cool his hurtful throat after he had swallowed poison.

The first day involves a long steady climb to reach Chandan Bari at an altitude of about 3,200 m (10,500 ft). Laurebinayak at about 3,700 m (12,100 ft) can be reached on the second day. At this point, some trekkers choose to climb ahead to Gosaikunda, though mountain sickness concern as the ascent is rather steep. Many trekkers choose to stay at Laurebinayak, which also provides sunset and sunrise views of the Langtang and Ganesh Himal.
