One of the famous trekking routes in Nepal for both - lodge trekking and camping, Ghorepani trek offers a wonderful opportunity to witness the beauty of the Annapurna region in a short span of time. This place is rich with hidden treasure of Nepalese culture and tradition. The trail passes through the villages of Gurung and Magar, home of the famous Gorkha warrior clan, dense rhododendron and oak forests, abundant with diverse bird species, green hills and patchwork valleys. The initial part of the tour is breathtaking. At just about every turn is a tantalizing glimpse of Mt. Fishtail (6,993m,) Annapurna (8,091m) and the Dhaulagiri (8,167) range. On an excursion to Pun Hill one can observe the entire mountain ranges; covered with the red and pink rays of the sun in full bloom at sunset and sunrise. This is a rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature.

Beyond a pastureland used by pony caravans, the trail reaches Sudame where we have lunch. After lunch we climb steadily up the side of the valley, reaching Hile at 1495m and nearby Tikhedhunga. Along the way, various hamlets offer ample camping possibilities but if Gorepani is the objective for the next day, it is better to push on to Tikhedhunga.

Day 5 : Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani (2860m/9383ft/) 6hrs  

Breakfast is served in the morning around 7am. From Tikhedhunga, the trail crosses a stream (BhurungdiKhola) via a suspension bridge and we start the long steep climb to the large Magar village of Ulleri at 2,070m. Above the village, the trail climbs gently through pastures and cultivated fields.  And then continues on through magnificent rhododendron and oak forests. Our lunch spot is in NangeThanti. Thanti is a Nepali word meaning “rest hut”.  In the winter, the trail can be covered with snow. From NangeThanti, it’s about an hour walk to Ghorepani at 2,848m.

As the sun rises, the views are literally breathtaking, a wide Himalayan panorama stretching from Dhaulagiri (8,167m) - the world's seventh highest peak to Manaslu 8,156m - the world's eighth highest peak, with the mighty Annapurna range in between them. We then return to our camp in time for breakfast. Following breakfast, the first part of our climb is along the ridges of the hills through pine and rhododendron forests. We reach the top at 3,030 meters and then descend to a second pass also called Deurali. The steep descent gradually gives way to a gentle walk as we reach Banthanti where we will stop for lunch. From Banthanti, the trail follows the stream down to a bridge where the trail starts climbing to Tadapani (2, 540m).  Along the way the trail offers a brief view of the mountains. Tadapani means “far waters” and possibly the name was picked up as the villager have to go far to fetch drinking water.
