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.

Farizul's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“This is my 2nd trip to Poon Hill, but this time with the whole family, including 2 small kids, 2 yo and 4 yo. Obviously, I have an extra need because of the kids and Hari and Shiva as a guide attentively caters to these needs. What I would like to say here is, it doesn't matter what your needs are, you can bet that they will try hard to make your trip successful and become one of the best memory you will have. Highly recommended”

Cristiano's review for another Icicles Adventure Treks and Tours Pvt Ltd tour
“Everest base camp trek was special trip for me, a birthday gift from mother. This 12-day experience remains to be one of my life's proudest moments, because not everyone can say they've been there and done it. It is naturally not the same as the sweet victory of summiting Everest, but hey, Everest Base Camp is still not an easy trek and it never will be.”

“I was planning to go to Annapurna Base Camp, but my schedule changed due to the avalanche. Thanks to the quick response, we were able to reach the Maldi Himar View Point. Also thank you next time.”
