Gosaikunda Lake is situated at the height of 4380 meters from sea level, and melts and sips down to form the Trishuli River. It is on the way of a popular trekking route of Langtang and Helambu trail. In fact there are 108 total lakes, small to medium in this area and also the challenging Lauribina La pass 4610 meters on its outskirts. During full moon in August each year both Hindu and Shamans hold a festival called Janai Purnima (Janai meaning sacred thread, and Purnima meaning the full moon) where important rites can be observed. We will arrive at Gosaikunda Lakes a day before this date. On this day Hindu men, especially the Brahmans and Chettris perform their annual change of Janai, a yellow cotton string worn across the chest or tied around the wrist of the right hand. This thread is only given to males during a lengthy and impressive religious ceremony called the Bratabandhan and change of the thread on the auspicious full moon day.
