“Ghandruk Trekking – Explore Nepal’s iconic Homestay Village”

Ghandruk Trekking journey is easy and beautiful. It is cultural, natural and local too. Moreover, the village of Ghandruk is on the way to Poon Hill as well as Annapurna Base Camp. There are numerous side trips which trekkers can do from the destination. If you are looking to get repose from your daily chores of life then book the trekking.

People of Ghandruk are ordinary but with extraordinary sense of hospitality. The root of these Gurung /Magar /Chhetris /Dalits/ Brahmins people are very strong. It is an open museum to understand their rich culture and traditions. Majority of people living in the area are Gurung.

Development is good as well as curse for any touristic destination. Ghandruk is the prime example of this latest trend in Nepal. Ghandruk Trekking route used to be the most prolific short walking trail in an entire Annapurna Region. However, the construction of Road connecting the village of Ghandruk and Pokhara had ruined the fun. To revive this beautiful walking trail people of village, Nepal Government and Tourism Board initiated to create a new trail. Henceforth, this new trail gives vibes of old trekking route as well.

Journey of Ghandruk Trekking starts with the private vehicle drive to Nayapool. Trekkers start to walk once they cross the Modi Khola and continue walking along the bank of the River. One hour from Birethanti the trail is uphill all the way to Ghandruk.

Green lush forests and terraced farmlands along the way make it diverse for trekkers. The scenery of mountains and the cascading hills definitely help trekkers forget the pain of walking uphill.

Cultural program hosted by the people of Ghandruk is the highlight of the trekking. Trekkers can fully participate in this cultural program and relish the clamorous lifestyle of locals. Folk songs and local delicacies help trekkers to fully immerse into the life of Gurungs.

Early in the morning scenery of sun rising from the casement of lofty snowcapped mountains does the icing on the cake. The journey is very much joyous. It is less challenging rather it is pleasing trekking route. Every age group of people can trek on this trail.

How to obtain visa to travel to Nepal?

The extension of visa requires an additional payment of $30. Do not forget to carry some passport size photos with you.

I want to go on a trek. What is the best time and place for it?

Everything you want to do is time and cost specific. Besides, your experience in trekking will also matter. There is wide range of options in Nepal if you want to explore. If you arrive in proper season, that is, between September to November (Autumn Season) and March to May (Spring Season), you might just experience something that you will be able to cherish for the lifetime. The shortest of trek can be Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, Langtang Helambu Trek or the Annapurna Circuit. The Everest trek and the full Annapurna sanctuary Trek can be ideal if you have a little more time. Finally, if you are looking for something that’s longer and more challenging, you’re looking at Kanchanjunga or Makalu area Trek.

What are the best trekking routes?

Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Basecamp, Everest Basecamp, Dhaulagiri Circuit, Manaslu Circuit and Kanchanjunga are the most popular trekking routes in Nepal.

Should I trek with an agency or should I trek alone?

Trekking alone can be a good experience if you are familiar with the terrain and have quite a few experiences in the area. Nobody can drag you down, and you can move at your own pace savoring the pleasant sceneries around to you. However, if it is your first experience or so, you might want to travel in group or with an agency. Should situations like medical emergencies, isolation due to disasters, etc. occur, having a group can be a matter of relief. If you have no group and you’re all by yourselves, you can hire a porter or a guide.

Is communication to our home country possible while on a trek or climb?

Nepal’s communication facilities are getting day by day, and most portions of trekking routes have mobile phone coverage. In case of a climb, VHF or satellite phones are available at the base camp. In both cases, weather can play an important role in communication.
