Yet another alluring fascination that bears legendary tales and fabulous myths is the Gouri Kund, which is equally revered as that of the Mount Kailash. This water body is described as the lake of compassion in the Shiva Purana, which unfurls the funny but touching story of the elephant headed god. A steep descent from the Dolma Pass will fetch the devotee to this lovely lake that lies at an altitude of 5608 meters.

This lake is popularly called as the Parvati Sarovar since it was here that Goddess Parvati breathed life into the image of Ganesh, which she had created from the soap foam on her body. Legend has it that Ganesha was the janitor of Parvathi’s house and once he stopped Shiva from entering to the house and feeling offended, Shiva beheaded the boy. Pravati was grief-stricken and persisted that the boy be brought back to life and Shiva took the head of an elephant and placed it on the body.

Though difficult to get in, this lake offers the beholder some of the awe inspiring vistas of Himalayas. One would get the beautiful reflection of the Chhota Kailash peak in its surface and it is undeniably awesome and would definitely took the breath of the on looker.
