Gosai Kunda, also spelled Gosainkunda and Gosain Kunda is an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in Rasuwa district, Langtang National Park, Nepal.It is the site of regular Hindu pilgrimage. It is situated at the height of 4380 metres (14370 feet) from sea level with a surface of 13.8 ha (34 acres). Together with associated lakes, the Gosaikunda Lake complex is 1,030 ha (4.0 sq mi) in size and has been designated a Ramsar site in September 2007.
The Gosaikunda area has been delineated as a religious site. Hindu mythology attributes Gosaikunda as the abode of Hindu deities Lord Shiva and Goddess Gauri. The Hindu scriptures Bhagavata Purana and Vishnu Purana, and the Hindu epics Ramayana and Mahabharata refer to Samudra manthan, which is directly related to the origin of Gosaikunda.
Its holy waters are considered of particular significance during Gangadashahara and the sacred thread festival Janai Purnima when thousands of pilgrims from Nepal and India visit the area.It is believed to have originated from the digging of the land by the Lord Shiva's weapon Trishul (holy 3 pointed sword)after he drank the poison from samudra-manthan and desperately wanted cold water to drink to quench the overwhelming heat of the poison inside himself.
The lake melts and sips down to form the Trishuli river and remains frozen for six months in winter October to June. There are 108 lakes in this area, small to medium in size.
