Ghandruk is a charming village located in the Annapurna region. It is the biggest Gurung community in Nepal, a hilly ethnic group that inhibits this region. The village will charm you with its traditional stone houses and narrow stone alleys. It is nestled by the Annapurna mountain massif and Fishtail that stand in a full grandeur behind the hills. Ghandruk also has two museums filled with local artifacts and many small restaurants that serve traditional Nepali dishes.

The Dhampus Sarangkot Trek is a short but sweet journey in the Annapurna region that nonetheless showcases many of the highlights of this region.
