Ghandruk Village Tour

Trip Overview

Ghandruk is a small village situated in the lap of the Annapurna Ranges. Being a Gurung community and a standout village for homestays, you would possibly encounter the best remote lifestyle over there.

The Ghandruk village is culturally very rich. With that, it also provides you with beautiful views of the Annapurna range along with Mount Machhapuchhre, Gangapurna, and Dhaulagiri.

Not many years ago, you have to trek up to the Ghandruk village. Since there were no other options to reach out to that gorgeously nestled village. But now, with the service of transportation, the village no longer remains the trekking destination.

Instead, it became a hiking destination. You might even ignore doing a day of hiking to reach over there. But, we believe, even hiking down to the Ghandruk village is the best way to taste the beautiful synergy of the nearby village.

That is why, taking the advantage of the possibility of reaching there by vehicle, we prepared an itinerary with at least a day of hiking. That routes to Ghandruk, Landruk, and Pothana (three of the most beautiful villages of the Annapurna region).

And, here is the trip outlines.

Day 1: Arrival at Kathmandu

Day 2: Kathmandu Sightseeing

Day 3: Kathmandu to Pokhara and sightseeing at Pokhara ( lakeside)

Day 4: Pokhara to Ghandruk Village and Ghandruk village exploration

Day 5: Trek back to Pothana and drive back to Pokhara via private vehicle

Day 6: Pokhara Sightseeing (You can extend the days at Pokhara as per your interest)

Day 7: Back to Kathmandu
