gosainkunda trek

The Gosainkunda Trek is undoubtedly some of the most gorgeous high-altitude scenery in the Nepal Himalaya. It is relatively accessible for fit individuals via the Gosainkunda Trek and not too crowded with hikers.

 

The highlights include the sunrise from Laurebina, the high-altitude lakes of the Gosainkunda, and the pass at an exhausting 4,610m.
