Khudi Pokhara trek is a short & easy to do, wildlife and cultural trek between picturesque Gurung villages nestling in Nepal’s Himalayan foothills near Pokhara. The fantastic view from the villages stretches from Buddha Himal, Himalchuli and Manaslu to the north east Mt. Lamjung and Annapurna II to the north and Mt. Machhapuchhre and Annapurna South to the North West. This trek is ideal for those person who have limited period of time and wants to explore the traditional culture and customs of Nepal along with the natural trails.

Khudi Pokhara trek is situated in northern central part of Nepal. Khudi in Lamjung District is a major gateway to the Annapurna region, a famous trekking destination at the top of two hills. This place is a wonderful experience – with an early mornings mists, Midim Rivers, rhododendrons, the chirping sound of the birds, forests, awesome waterfalls etc. One is completely at home with nature during this trek.

The beautiful villages of Ghalegaun and Ghanpokhara lies towards the north west of Khudi at the top of the nearby hills. Ghalegaun and Ghanpokhara are mainly Gurung settlements nestled amidst mountains, rivers, streams, waterfalls and green forests. Accommodation is offered at community run home stays in Ghale gaun and Ghanpokhara and other villages. Visitors have a chance to have a closer look at Gurung lifestyle by staying in their homes, sharing their home – cooked food and interacting with them as family guests. Food offered here is wholesome and organic, usually rice, lentils, homemade buckwheat and millet bread, local vegetables and most served with Pa (local millet alcohol). Visitors go to their allocated home for meals and to rest. The home stay experience is complemented by cultural shows performed by community members on request of visitors.
