09 Days | Ghale Gaun Trekking /Gurung village
Gurung village

Ghale Gaun (2016m) is the region of Gurkha soldier and it is mostly favorite destination. Trekkers who want to experience the Gurung culture and the natural scenery, this destination is ideal selection. It lies in Annapurna Region at 2016m. North – west of Kathmandu with 142 km distance and north- east of Pokhara with 11 km distance. Ghale Gaun Trekking is one of the short trekking starting from Pokhara with full of natural beauty and welcoming people.

It is much more popular for doing the home stay trek. As for now, 33 of the total of 120 households in the village provide home stay facility to visitors. Similarly, the concept of home-stay had started here some 15 years ago. If you want without trekking to reach there then by road will be the another alternative. It takes around two hours to reach the village from Lamjung district headquarters Besishahar by road. As for public transportation, some 16 jeeps routinely ply the route.

Attractions

While doing trekking we will cross through the forest of Rhododendron, many flora and fauna with the waterfall, Natural beauties and bird watching. Furthermore, during the trekking period you will facing the majestic views of Mountain; Lamjung Himal to the east, Fishtail, Annapurna IV and II  to the north , Himchuli, manaslu, Bouddha Himal and many more smaller mountain peaks. This place is famous as a point  from where you can observe avalanches thundering down of the mountain sides. Similarly, this destination is also known as Honey Hunting place and handmade local crafts.

Ghale Gaun has been recently marketed as a new tourist destination to experience the village tourism. Gurung people will attract you with warm and sincere hospitality .  In addition the other attraction places of this destitution are Talangyo Lake, Uttar Kanya Temple, Pempro fall, Batase Cave, and the Khudi Hydroelectric Dam. Moreover, the local people of this village performed their cultural dance like Rodhi, Sorathi, Ghatu, Argau, Serka etc on occasion with local made traditional instruments and with unique dress.

Variations on this route are often touted as the ‘Royal Trek’, after a rally the troops swing Prince Charles took through the area in 1980 to visit the villages of Gurkha recruits. If you want to visit Ghale Gaon directly then drive from Kathmadnu to Khudi with private car or Local bus and trek to Siddha Cave. Overnight at Local Guest House.
