Photographer's Note

The trek to Ghandruk starts after one hour of drive from Pokhara and ascends through the valley of Modi Khola river after crossing the suspension bridge at Birethanti. We then climbed past farm terraces and beautiful hill villages and at the end of the day reached the ethnic Gurung village of Ghandruk, which is the second largest Gurung village in Nepal

Ghandruk village offers some wonderful close up views of both the sacred mountain Macchapuchre (Fishtail) and Annapurna South, and the view during sunrise is magnificent. The village still preserves the traditional houses with stone roofs, and it was nice to walk around and observe the local mountain life.
