Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which will be revealed to you as you reach the high points of your trek. Trekking to the view point at Poon Hill offers you unobstructed mountain views.

An easy trek in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by Gurungs, Magars and other ethnic groups, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurna’s with the picturesque peak of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline.

Pashupatinath Temple is one of the most significant Hindu temples of Lord Shiva in the world, located on the banks of the Bagmati River. Though you are not allowed to go inside the temple as it is strictly for Hindus only, you can clearly see the temple and the activities from the eastern bank of the Bagmati River. It is a square two-tiered pagoda temple built on a single-tier plinth which is famous all over the world.

Boudhanath Stupa

Boudhananath is one of the holiest Buddhist sites in Kathmandu. It was built in the 5th century with four pairs of eyes of Lord Buddha in four cardinal directions keeping an eternal watch over the people and their doings. You will find Buddhist pilgrims from Tibet going around the stupa spinning the prayer wheels.

From there, the trail continues through the village and follows the north bank of the Bhurungdi Khola. The trail climbs steadily up the side of the valley to Hille at (1,495 m). After a short climb, we reach Tikhedhunga at (1,570 m). Today’s walk is relatively short and easy, a prelude to the trekking experience in the Annapurna region.

After that, we descend to the Banthanti, then turn off to Tadapani.

Ghandruk is also home to many Gurkha soldiers.
