Lake Gosaikunda is a holy site in Nepal, otherwise referred to as "Gosainkunda," which is of great importance to the Hindu as well as to the Buddhists. Gosaikunda Lake in the Rasuwa district is an alpine freshwater lake situated at an elevation of 4,380m, Langtang National Park. The lake surface is about 34 acres and much of the Winter season, i.e. October to June, is already frozen. Winter has its benefits, however. If you're going in winter, the snow-covered atmosphere gives you a heavenly nostalgia at Gosaikunda Lake. No matter the seasons, there is something new to Gosaikunda Lake every year.

The Gosaikunda root has a direct relationship with the epics of Ramayana and Mahabharata as the Samundra Manthan lake is referred to. Hindu mythology also characterizes Gosaikunda as the Hindu deity adobe Shiva and Gauri. During Gangadashahara and the Janai Purnima, two main festivals in the Hindus, the Gosaikunda water is regarded as sacred, and pilgrims from various parts of Nepal and India visit the site. The lake is supposed to have created when Lord Shiva plunged his Trishul (Shiva's Trident) into the mountain to extract the water to cool his hold after the poison has swept down. Pilgrims claim that Gosainkunda Lake's drinking water keeps their bodies healthy for their lives.

From the domestic terminal of the Tribhuban International Airport in Kathmandu, the Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour in Nepal begins. Around 1 hour is required to travel from Kathmandu to Gosaikunda. 

After about 15 to 17 minutes, we can reach Gosaikunda Lake, overflowing with dispersed Tamang settlements and flight beside the giants of lush, green hills.

Once at Gosaikunda in 4380 meters, a huge mountain range is right before us, we will be welcomed with a backdrop. Because in half an hour we should have reached 4,000 + m, it could lead to altitude sickness to spend longer than 30 minutes. It's doubtful, though. So we'll start visiting the place and make the most of our little time.

The Gosaikunda Helicopter Tour in Nepal starts from the domestic terminal of Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. The round trip from Kathmandu to Gosaikunda takes approximately 1 hour. The flight begins after a short introduction of our captains and some mandatory safety precaution information. They will also provide you with information on how to handle an emergency. We make sure that the safety requirements have been checked off before we even begin the trip. 


After the briefing, the helicopter takes off leaving the airstrip behind and heads to the north. As we fly over the dense city of Kathmandu, we enter Langtang National Park in just a few minutes of take-off. Swirling above the scattered Tamang settlements and flying beside the giants of verdant green hills, we will reach the Gosaikunda Lake after approximately 15 to 17 minutes. 


Upon landing at Gosaikunda at an altitude of 4,380m, we will be greeted with the backdrop of a massive Langtang mountain range right in front of us. As we would have ascended to 4,000+m in only half an hour, spending more than 30 minutes could result in altitude sickness. However, it is very unlikely. So, to make the most out of our limited time, we start touring the location. The Gosaikunda Lake looks unreal in-person and it gives out a peaceful aura with the soothing sound, enough for you to let go of everything and just be present at the moment. You will find yourself surrounded by the giant mountains of the Langtang range. The weather at Gosaikunda can go from sunny to snowy real quick. The surrounding is usually very cold with a chilly breeze and thin air. The tour comes to an end as we fly back to Kathmandu airport.
