The Gurung heritage trail provides first- hand experience of gurung lifestyle and culture. The trail starts from khudi to ghalegaun and ghanapokhara. The trail then passes through other Gurung villages, Bhujung , Pasgaun , Pakhrikot, Nangidhar finally ending at pokhara. One can also see wonderful views of the Annapurna rangs on the route. The local community- runs home -  stays

Conversely, one can also start the trek from Pokhara . A 4-hours drive from pokhara to thumsikot , ghumte bazaar in kaski brings you to the trekking gateway passing begnas lake and the other seven lakes of the region . The route continues to Ghatebesi (750m) and beyond, and a final tough climb brings you to Nagidhar (1,900m) village where you stay for the night. It is not unusual for the villagers from Nangidhar to descend down and greet you with a warm Namaste, flower garlands and crimson powder, a typical Nepali way of greeting guists . There is a hill with the remains of a 200-year old Gurung settlement and a beautiful lake that can be reached after a short hike from Nangidhar.

Next morning you begin your trek to pasgaun along a straight and level trail for several hours. These section passes through jungles and beautiful waterfalls. The toughest part of the journey is in the afternoon the locals say that the steep ascent from Bagaicha to Pasagun is there Everest.

Pasagun is a beautiful Gurung villageand a perfect example of community village life in Nepal. Compared to Nangidhar , ex army men here have set up clubs and are inclined to cleanliness and health issues . The Aama samuha here has also set up telephone service and built a gompa .

The next stop Bhung, well populated Gurung village, is a hour walk from Ghalegaun .Bhujung is unique as it is the only VDC in Nepal with only one settlement to administer. This route also provides firsthand experience on the matriarchal aspect of life among the gurung people. Every village visited has a mother’s group or ama samuha.
