Trip Introduction

Ghandruk is a beautiful village in the Northen-Central region of Nepal mostly inhabited by Gurung people and the Ghandruk Trek is famously known as the shortest and easiest trekking destination in the Annapurna range. The Ghandruk trek offers the taste of local Gurung culture along with their scattered rows of clean slate-roofed houses in the beautiful terraces of wheat and barley. This most scenic trail starts from Pokhara and then proceeds to the peaceful and natural countryside area in the lap of mountains like Machhapuchchhre and Annapurna. Besides these, the visitors can experience the suspension bridge at Birethanti, honey bee hives on the rocky cliff, local museum and Buddhist monasteries. The close view of Annapurna right before the eyes and its view during the sunrise and sunset are breathtaking.

Since the Ghandruk Trek offers the shot and easy trail, it is best suited for those who have limited time as well as hate arduous walking. People who relish on natural beauty, scenic mountains along with the local culture can greatly enjoy this trek. You won’t get most of it if you are heading for the trek on a cloudy or misty day which blocks the great mountains as well as the sunrise view. So we recommend trekkers to check the weather forecast before heading for Ghandruk Trek and make sure that they can capture the stunning view of the sunrise in the morning on those high standing mountains and colorful terrains and local houses.

The main occupation of the people living in Ghandruk area is tourism dependent which makes sure that there is no lack of accommodation, meals and other required services for trekkers.
