The memorable beauty of Ghandruk village will captivate you through all your senses. The traditional houses and rhythm of life of this village will transport you to the authentic rural world of the locals of the Annapurna Region.
Get immersed in the Gurung culture. Gurung Shamanism is one of the oldest religion in Nepal, where each village has their own local deities. Our way will cross the wonderful forest, and terraced fields as we approach the land of the Annapurnas. We are immersed in the rural world of the Gurung community and we don’t miss astonishing views to big giants of the Himalayas.
During the trek, we have the privilege to contemplate Machhapuchhre, a very special mountain for the locals. So sacred it as never been climbed to its summit. And Annapurna South will show splendorous above the hills.
Enjoy taking a relaxing warm bath in the Hot Springs (at Jhinu Danda) while contemplating the Modi river right next to you. A peaceful magic moment, surrounded by beautiful nature.
