Why do the Ghandruk Trek?

Enjoy the best views of Annapurna South and Fishtail Mountain, visit a privately run museum, and explore a village inhabited by the Gurung community with its unique culture.

The Ghandruk Trek starts from Nayapul, which serves as the gateway to the trek. It takes 2 hours by bus or 1 hour by taxi to reach Nayapul from Pokhara. The altitude of Nayapul is 1070 meters, while that of Ghandruk is 2000 meters. Ghandruk is the most scenic and popular trek that can be done from Pokhara. It offers a close-up view of the Annapurna mountain range, and the sunrise and sunset views are fantastic. The trail provides breathtaking views of Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, Machhapuchre, and Hiunchuli. The mountain views are very beautiful, and the trail is relatively easy. The highest point is only 2000 meters, so there is no risk of altitude sickness. All of these factors make the Ghandruk Trek an ideal choice for anyone looking for a short trek in the Annapurna foothills.”
