The water of Gosaikunda is considered holy water whereas there is a place carrying a particular significance during the Gangadashara festival and the Janai Purnima festival where thousands of pilgrims from Nepal and India visit the area. Gosaikunda is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trishul (holy Trident) into a mountain to extract water so that he could cool his stinging throat after he had swallowed poison.
