Gosaikunda(or Gosainkunda), is an alpine freshwater oligotrophic lake in Nepal’s Langtang National Park. It is situated at an altitude of 14,370 ft. in the Rasuwa District. The lake melts to form the Trishuli River, it remains frozen for six months in winter October to June. There are 108 lakes in the vicinity.

Gosaikunda is not only a Ramsar site (since 2007), meaning that it is a wetland of international importance, but is a site considered holy to both Buddhists and Hindus. In Hindu mythology Vishnu Purana, Bhagavata Purana, and the epics of Mahabharat, Ramayana refers to Samudra Manthan, which is related to the Gosaikunda. It is believed that Gosaikunda is the abode of the gods' Shiva and Gauri. It is believed that Lord Shiva formed the lake when he thrust his holy trident into the mountain to extract the water to drink so that he could cool his stinging throat after he had swallowed poison. The water is considered of particular significance during the Janai Purnima festival at the full moon in August when thousands of pilgrims gather. People come here and take a bath in Kunda and the brahmins change their Janai. They believe by doing so it will wash away the sins they have done over their lifetime.
