If you’re looking for a short relatively easy trek that gives you a taste of the Nepal trekking experience this might be the trek for you. The trek boasts excellent views of the Annapurna Range including such iconic peaks as Gangapura, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Annapurna. The trail passes through forests, paddy fields, and villages, traversing rivers and streams before reaching the beautiful Gurung village of Ghandruk.

Side trip via Australian Camp: The small clearing At 2165 m (7,103 ft) known as Australian Camp offers a spectacular panorama of the Annapurna Range. An overnight here will deliver a sunrise to remember.
