Gosainkund Lake is one of Nepal’s most famous religious and pilgrimage place of Shamans and Hindus, situated at a height of 4380m, encircled by high mountains on the north and east. This lake is splendid and scenic. Each year during Janai Purnima (August Full Moon day), thousands of Hindu pilgrims come here for blessings. The large rock in the center of the lake is believed to be the head of lord Shiva. Shamans ("Dhami or Jhankri") are called Bon-Po in Tamang language, a different pre-Buddhist sect, and come from all over Nepal to the lake, to be there on full moon night. Shamans perform spiritual dancing and singing during the ceremony and this day is considered holy by the shamans, whereby apprentices or "junior Jhankris" obtain graduation from their masters or senior shamans.
Legend says; Lord Shiva created this high altitude lake when he pierced a glacier with his trident to get a water to quench is thirst from consuming some poison. On this day, you can take shaman’s healing and other spiritual practices.
