Then, the trail gradually gains altitude as we pass through the pine and rhododendron forest enjoying the good views down into the Helambu valley and across to Jugal Himal and Numbur. Finally reach at Tharepati where we spend the night. 

From Tharepati, the trail descends to a stream and ascends along the ridge, through rhododendron and juniper forests, to Ghopte at 3359m. From here, we again ascend to Phedi. This is such a nice trek which offers unimaginable view of Laurebina pass. We stay overnight at the tea house.

There are three sacred lakes in Gosainkunda- Saraswati Kunda, Bharavi Kunda and Gosaikunda. This third lake is particularly sacred and is a place of pilgrimage in summer. According to the legend, this lake was created by Lord Shiva himself when he pierced a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after he drank the poison which was a by-product while churning the ocean by “Suras” and “Asuras” for ambrosia. Overnight stay at a tea house. 

From the lake- Saraswati Kunda, the trail ascends to a ridge. There are good views across Langtang valley to Langtang Lirung. To the west are dramatic views of Himalchuli, Ganesh Himal and Manaslu.
