KEEP WALKING - NEPAL

GHALE GAUN HOME STAY TREK

Temporarily unavailable

Ghale Gaun lies in the Western Region of Nepal, is 205 km northwest of Kathmandu and with its ‘kind’ altitude of 2095m it’s the ideal rural tourist destination for observing ethnic gurung settlements.

This trek provides home stay highlights which include the local culture, traditions and customs of day to day village life within Nepal. You will experience the ‘hands on’ lifestyle of villagers as we move through each village, and the locals will provide you with an insight that will surprise and delight.

Well furnished rooms, clean toilets and delicious foods are available, and supplied with the natural hospitality of the Gurung people.

In addition, spectacular views of the Himalayas including Annapurna, Hiunchuli, Manasalu, Lamjung together with picturesque forests, waterfalls and rivers will provide an amazing experience.

We would be pleased to have you on the journey and to introduce you to our country and ways of life while you travel as part of my extended family.

Did you know? Ama Dablam means ‘mother’s necklace’ – the hanging glacier resembles a ‘dablam’ – a piece of jewellery worn by Sherpa women.
