The Annapurna region is a prime destination for treks to the peaks of Khudi Hills. Ghalegaon, Ghapokhara and another traditional village, are located on the hill near northwest of Khudi. From the moment you enter these villages, you will feel the genuine hospitality of the unique Nepali people. First you will be warmly welcomed by the villagers in typical local style then you will observe typical local music and dance.

Ghale Gaun is a wonderful village to stay some days and explore the life within the community beneath the Himalayas. Get up early to see the spectacular sunrise over the majestic mountains like Machapuchare and Annapurna. Walk around the villages to see the traditional lifestyles, cultures, and traditions.
