    About Ghandruk Trek

    Ghandruk trek is an ideal program for those who wish to do a short and easy trek in Nepal. This trek trail lies in the foothill of the Annapurna region, around 45 minutes’ drive from Pokhara city.  Provides some beautiful views of the central Himalayas (weather permitting) of Nepal, passes through local villages, and terrace fields.

    Initially this program explores the beauty of Kathmandu valley by visiting the Buddhist stupas, temples and the ancient palace. Then flies to Pokhara the valley with the beauty of mountains and tranquility.

    From Pokhara we will have around an hour northwest drive to Kande the starting point of the Ghandruk trek. Trek starts with 300 m steep ascent to famous Australian base Camp famous for view of sunrise over the Himalayas. Then stops over two Gurung village of Landruk and Ghandruk. Trek trail passes through rhododendron & oak forest, crosses some typical Nepali villages and terrace fields. Trekking in this region means getting some great views of Mt. Annapurna South(7,219 m), Mt. Machhapuchare (6,993m), Mt. Hiunchuli (6,441 m).

    Ghandruk trek lies in the lower elevation it can be done all through the years except in the monsoon season. But the best period is from October till December when the skies open up providing some fantastic view of the mountains and very pleasant weather to go for trek. During springtime this trek will be good from March till May but can be bit hazy. Spring times adds the beauty of the trekking as Rhododendron flowers all over the trail creating fusion of colors.
