Ghandruk Trekking is a popular short trail in the Annapurna region. The trek takes you to the naturally embodied village of Ghandruk in western Nepal, which is a beautiful village with old Gurung settlements. A highlight is the old Gurung museum, offering interesting information of the tribe’s history and way of living. From here you can enjoy a great view of Annapurna south, Gangapurna, Annapurna -III, Hiunchuli and Machhapuchhre. The Ghandruk trek is ideal for all kind of trekkers as it offers an easy trekking trail with no difficult climbing or ascents to high altitude. Further, this trek entices you with rich Gurung culture and tradition of people living in this exotic place.

Overall, this short trek provides a good introduction into trekking whilst also providing some wonderful close up views of both the sacred mountain Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) and Annapurna South. However, our destination is the beautiful and ornate village of Ghandruk, home to the Annapurna Conservation Area Project. Therefore, you have a chance to visit the project to discover first hand how the conservation work is being carried out. A refreshing three days allowing an insight into mountain life. Maximum altitude 2600 mtrs.
