Gosaikunda Lake is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when he thrust his Trishul (trident) into a mountain to extract water so that he could cool his burning throat after swallowing poison. There is a large rock in the center of the lake which is believed to the remains of a Shiva shrine. People often claim that they see Shiva lying in the water.
