Ghalegaon Gurung Heritage Trail short trek review

Awesome Trek. Awesome guides.

100% 5 star based on – 210 Based on TripAdvisor Reviews

Very spectacular ! The trek up to Ghalegaon with Ghanpokhara and Marshyangdi valley was great, along riverside through rhododendron forests. We saw a group of Monkeys. We spent a day in Ghalegaon, made a day excursion, bought some local honey and walked to Begnas lodge. It was tough, maybe not worth the effort.- Rehan Hui Chan, Singapore.
