The Lake’s water is very holy as it is believed that those who take a bath or drink the water of the lake will have their sin washed.
According to an old myth, Lord Shiva drank the poison excavated from the Sea. In order to save the world, he engulfed the poison but couldn’t endure the pain. Therefore, he threw his trident on the rock eventually the water came out of it. He drank the water which kept the poison in his neck. He has got the name of Nilkantha from that incident. The same water is at the holy Gosainkunda Lake. It is also the source of the famous Trishuli River, well known for the rafting in Nepal.
