Ghandruk village with Mount Annapurna South and Himchuli

We begin the Annapurna Ghandruk Loop trekking at the vibrant city of Pokhara. We would also like to recommend this trek for children or elderly people who would like to trek as it does not require particularly long hiking days. During the trek, we will spend the nights at locally owned cozy mountain lodges. The trek guarantees breathtaking close-up views of Annapurna ranges like the Annapurna South, Hinchuli, Annapurna III, Gangapurna, Fishtail, Mardi Himal, etc.
