- Trip Overview
- Fixed Departure
This is a pristine area newly opened for tourism. Apart from the stunning landscape and views of the Annapurna region, Ghale Gaun offers a real opportunity to become a part of village life, lodging with local Gurung families. This area is also home to the famous honey hunters of Nepal. The beautiful villages of Ghale Gaun and Ghanpokhara lie to the Northwest of Khudi at the top of the nearby hills. They are situated at an altitude of 2,070metres and 2,100metres respectively. Ghale Gaun and Ghanpokhara are mainly Gurung settlements nestled amidst mountains, rivers, streams, waterfalls and green forests. The view from the villages stretches from Buddha himal, Himalchuli and Manaslu to the northeast Mt. Lamjung and Annapurna II to the north and Mt. Machhapucchre and Annapurna South to the Northwest. The approach to Ghale Gaun – Ghanpokhara is a wonderful experience; the mists of the early mornings, the beautiful Khudi and Midim rivers; beautiful rhododendrons; chirping sound of the birds simply takes one to the faraway place and completely with the nature. Mission Nepal recommends you this tour as one of the best tourist destinations for those who are relatively looking for easy, short, family trekking, to see the village tourism in Lamjung district. The trekking route passes through the dense forests, villages and awesome waterfalls.
Hunting for honey is an age-old tradition among the people of Ghale Gaun. The local honey hunters show exceptional skills as they hang from steep cliffs as high as 300meters using bamboo ladders and hemp ropes, while harvesting the honeycombs of wild bees. The honey is harvested twice a year during April-May and October-November. Honey collected in April-May from hives on the steep cliffs is highly flavored. It is used as medicine and has a high price in the international market.
