Ghalegaun and Ghanpokhara trekking routes offer model villages for experiencing the typical culture and lifestyles of the Gurung people. Traditional customs are still followed during births, deaths, marriages, and other rituals. Age-old cultural dances like Jyaure, serka, dohori, Ghatu, Sorathi, Jankri etc are performed on various occasions accompanied by different musical instruments and with the dancers in traditional dress.
Ghalegaun, situated at the foot of Lamjung Himal in north-central Nepal, is an exotic pristine village endowed with an unparallel scenic grandeur and a home to world-famous Gurkha soldiers- the Gurungs. Repository of a unique ethnic culture Ghale Gaun is a true microcosm of stunning natural beauty mixed with an unspoiled ethnic lifestyle.
Ghanapokhara is a beautiful village heading towards development with a concept of eco-tourism. It lies north of Lamjung district in close proximity to Ghalegaun at the top of Dashthar Danda at an altitude of 2100 meters.
Ghalegaun and Ghanpokhara are mainly Gurung settlements; they nestle amidst mountains, rivers, streams, waterfalls, and green forests. These places command a superb breathtaking view of majestic western Himalayas including Machhapuchhare(6693m) Annapurna(8091m), Annapurna II (7939m) Annapurna IV (7525m), Lamjung Himal, Bouddha Himal((6974m), Himalchuli (6747m) and many smaller peaks.
The approach to Ghalegaun-Ghanpokhara is a wonderful experience in itself as it goes crossing over the Marsyandi, Khudi, and Midim rivers; passing through rhododendrons and blossoming along the way amidst the chirping of birds and wild insects. The trekking route passes through dense jungle and villages and impressive waterfalls. Nearby Talyngo Lake and Lami Lake add a new dimension to these attractions.

We did the 12-day itinerary trekking to Everest Base Camp. We booked it all from England and communicated with the owner Hari via email. Such a nice family that owns and runs this business. Very friendly and welcoming. We had loads of cups of tea with them in their shop in Thamel before and after our trek.
