Jomsom Ghodepani Trek

Marpha, a village in Mustang district, survives on tourism and mule rearing. Marpha is a metropolis for apple and related products, however, less crowed and touristy compared to Jomsom. In Marpha, trekkers can have a rustic Nepali village feel.

From Marpha, local buses will take trekkers to Tatopani. Tatopani, literally meaning ‘hot water’ in Nepali, is a hot water spring. Locals here believe that taking bath in the spring helps to cure skin and bone diseases. In Tatopani, a half day bath is arranged for trekkers in the spring.

From Tatopani, trekkers will trek up to Shikha and Ghorepani. Once you are at Poon-Hill, the view of Annapurna & Dhaulagiri range dominating the skyline will astonish you. After a half-day rest and other activities at Ghorepani, trekkers will move down to Deurali, Tadapani and Ghandruk. Ghandruk, a popular Gurung village for its traditional houses and rich culture is also famous for Gorkha soldiers. At Ghandruk, trekkers can relax whilst enjoying the sight of slate-roofed houses and the lifestyle of the local people.

Next in route is a trek to Syauli bazaar, Birethanti and back to Pokhara. Among the numerous things to do when one is in Pokhara, renting a bike, visiting International Mountain Museum, boating in Fewa lake, or just a walk beside the riverside will add beauty to being at Pokhara, a city of lakes.
