There are many sacred lakes in Gosain Kund area. It is believed that a terrible poison was spreading all over the universe in Golden Era and that was destroying almost all living things, human beings, gods and goddesses. But the god of fate and destruction Lord Shiv, one of 3 major gods swallowed all poison to pacify the universe and to quench his thrust he created the big lake by piercing a glacier moraine with his magic trident. Nowadays people see the shadow of Lord Shiv in the level of the lake Gosain Kund. Trident is called Trishool in Nepali. Originated from Gosain Kund, Trisuli River, a famous river of Nepal for rafting is named by the trident/Trishool. Similarly other gods and goddesses created lakes to quench their thrust from the effect of poison around Gosain Kund.

Very recently, it is proposed to join the cable car service from Dhunche to Gosainkund via Bhairabkund and Saraswotikund that will be 30km distance. Over 40000 Hindu pilgrims visit this area every year. After linked the cable car service, it will be very easy and pleasant to get Gosainkund.
