A once in a lifetime opportunity to immerse yourself in one of the best cross cultural, multi religious event to observe the graduation rituals of apprentices at 4300m as they transition into full Shaman.
Gosainkunda Lake, located at an altitude of 4,380 m. (14,370 ft.) in Rasuwa District is famous because
in the August Full Moon, Shamans come here from all parts of Nepal for a full moon festival. It is a
graduation ceremony for Shamans, as apprentice shamans prove themselves full Shamans.
A major highlight of the trek is obviously the sacred lake as it is believed to have been created by Lord
Shiva to cool his stinging throat after he had swallowed poison by piercing the mountain to extract
water. It is also quite an experience to be trekking along with locals to the high mountain lake and
know about the place and tradition in depth. As it takes place in the o season, the tourists ow will
be very low and you will experience something dierent and how the people live on a daily basis.
