A magnificent pond on a rocky surface surrounded by sharp snowy peaks. It seems as if nature is a skilled craftsman with Gosainkunda as its best work of art. Sometimes, it feels like it has pulled on a sheet of snow, while other times, it is smiling in the reflection of the blue sky. This glacial lake is as shy and beautiful as any budding youth. It had been forever since I longed to see the magical Gosainkunda. It is not too far away from the capital. After reaching Rasuwa, one can easily reach Gosainkunda. I had not been able to manage time until now. This year though, I got the chance to see Gosainkunda upfront until my heart desired.
