Homestay has emerged as a popular form of accommodation in Nepal in recent years, especially since it provides an immersive, firsthand experience of local cultures to travelers who stay in the homes of the people rather than in hotels and lodges along a route.

Join us on this five-day guided trip to Ghale Gaun and travel to one of the most popular homestay villages in Nepal that is also known for preserving its authentic Gurung culture. We will meet you at the airport in Kathmandu on arrival and drive you to your hotel in the city. The journey begins on the second day when you head for Beshisahar, one of the entry points for those looking to explore the Annapurna region, followed by a drive to Ghale Gaun. Spend the third day of the trip exploring the surrounding areas and learning more about the people and their culture before leaving for Kathmandu the next day.

Situated at the altitude of 2,095 metres, Ghale Gaun has emerged as one of the most popular destinations for both domestic and international travelers looking to experience local culture while enjoying beautiful scenery around. Some of the mountains that you can see from this beautiful village are Machapuchare, Annapurna II, Annapurna, Annapurna IV, Lamjung Himal, Himalchuli and Bouddha Himal.

Adding to is popularity is the way the locals have preserved their culture despite all odds. Traditional customs are still followed during births, deaths, marriages and other rituals, while age-old song-and-dance forms like jyaure, serka, dohori, ghatu, sorathi, jankri, etc, are performed on various occasions accompanied by different musical instruments.

If you are looking for an opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of Nepal's cities and explore the hidden wonders of its villages, then this is an ideal trip for you. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.

“I have had no idea on Himalayan trekking and arrangements. It turned out to be an amazing journey to Himalaya with amazing people. It was very challenging, but I loved every moment of it! Really enjoyed the whole trip! Recommended trip and the organizer too.”

Oliver's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“Clear blue skies and fantastic vistas every day in late March 2016. I was 58 at the time and found the trek to be very doable. There were trekkers much older than me that accomplished it as well. In the teahouse dining rooms each evening, we enjoyed the company of travelers from the most diverse nationalities I have ever encountered in such a short time frame. There seemed to be an almost equal number of females as males. The menus are surprisingly full given that almost all of the food must be carried in. Every day brings rewarding scenery and passage through isolated villages. After Dingboche, the villages are there only to service the trekkers and the altitudes are probably too high to support farming. All in all a wonderful fulfilling experience.”

Peter's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“Annapurna base camp trek is wonderful experience for me and my kids. I am certain my kids are left with memories they will always treasure. No words or photos can describe the ten days we spent trekking to Annapurna Base Camp and back. It was awesome, it was incredibly hard for my kids but they forgot the hardship quickly as soon as they gazed up to the peaks. It was so icy cold at times because we trekked at the end of December. We laughed so much and sometimes we nearly cried. We stared at the mule trains carrying all sorts of logistics up and down the mountain trails and wondered at the strong porters. We sweated and gasped up the mountain stairways. We feared for our lives on the slippery slopes coming down from Machhapuchhre Base Camp and we came back to life in the pools of the Jhinu hot springs. And through all of this Shiva and Raj guarded us with their amazing knowledge and understanding, never-ending patience and wonderful sense of humor.”
