The Annapurna region is considered one of the most naturally stunning valleys around the nation. Marked by the Annapurna Himalayan Range, the region is adorned with lush green forests filled with oak, Sal and rhododendron trees. The valley is home to the ethnic Gurung clan and offers a diverse experience in terms of culture, values, and traditions. Passed down from generation to generation the populace still retains an ancient way of life. The hilly trail guides us through quaint monasteries and ancient temple reminiscent of the ancient Gurung heritage. The journey brings us to the vibrant village of Ghandruk, well known for its welcoming populace and stunning views of Machhapuchhre (6,997m). Overlooking the Himalayas, the picturesque town of Dhampus makes for a relaxing end to our Himalayan adventure.
