People and Nature around Ghandrunk..!!

Travelling and photography has been my passion since long. when my colleagues planned the trek to Ghandruk I was the Happiest one because ,I  have been hearing about this trek route and Ghandruk village since my childhood day and I always wanted to be there, this time I made my dream came true with my classmates and had a great time. Tour around Bandipur and Pokhara was bonus for me :)

Trek to Ghandruk provided me a good introduction to trekking  and also offered the breathtaking view of sacred mountain Macchapuchhre (fishtail) and Annapurna south.

Ghandrung, now known as Ghandruk is a typical gurung village of Kaski district. Its a popular and short trek destination of Annapurna region from Pokhara.Ghandruk once was a prime place to recurit British Gurkha and Indian army now is the hub for Annaapurna conservation area project (ACAP). This beautiful village with orderly rows of neat slate-roofed houses which are clustered on the canyon wall amid a complicated network of terraces provides opportunity to observe the life style of local people who are very cooperative.

A wander round it will reveal shops tea houses,local people transporting goods from one village to next , innocent children,small farm houses and their families ,donkeys mules, chicken and many more.
here I present some of my photograph which I captured during my trek to Ghandruk.
