Trip to Ghandruk


Ghandruk is a town and Village Development Committee in Kaski District in the Gandaki Zone of northern-central Nepal.
Ghandruk is a popular place for treks in the Annapurna range of Nepal( i.e. specially for Annapurna Base camp trek), with easy trails and various accommodation possibilities. From Ghandruk there are views to the mountains of Annapurna including Machapuchare, Himchuli. By this reason it’s purely in natural setting.
