Sun Set in GHALE GAUN

Half an hour north of Ghalegaun lie two other beautiful Gurung settlements – Nayu and Ghanpokhara. Ghanpokhara is known for its honey extracted from the hives of giant wild black bees. A nice way to pass time is to seek out the ‘honey hunters’ so famously depicted by Eric Valli and Diane Summers in 1988. After listening to stories of their perilous adventures in the cliffs where the bees are found, you can take a two and a half hour walk to reach Bhujung.

Bhujung contains the largest Gurung population in the area, with over 400 households that pride themselves on their rich cultural heritage. They have even generated their own electricity supply, and are considered pioneers in conservation and development in the area.

After a five hour up and down hike from Bhujung you will reach a pristine village of over 200 houses called Pasgaaun. Untouched by modernity, this village has retained its traditional feel, evident in its architecture (e.g. slant-roofed houses), culture, and food. the visitor can observe the unique mount up of stones of various size and shape forming different metaphors. This area can be developed as stone park/garden. Likewise at the top of the Pasgaaun village (Baghkhor jungle), visitors can observe the enjoyment of cave walk in Singdi/pasgaaun and slate extraction process (Stone mining) which is used for roofing the house. Anyone can melt down by the warm welcome and hospitality given by gurung to the guest at Pas gaun.

After Pasgaun, travellers can stop at Nanghidhar or Pakhrikot, make a last stop at Thumsikot, and take a bus to Pokhara, before ending the experience of the ‘Gurung Heritage Trail’. Those willing to postpone the end of their trip can go off road and hike to Begnas Trial and Rupa tal lakes, then take a car or bus to Pokhara, the most beautiful city of Nepal

BEST SEASON

The best time to visit these villages is from September to November, or from March to May, when the blooming rhododendrons are a sight to behold. The Tourism Management Sub Committee (TMsC) handles all the home stays in the region. Houses are solar lit, and boast toilets and bathroom facilities. Food is also provided for by the TMsC.
Five per cent of the guest’s payments goes towards the committee’s fund for conservation and community development, and there is also an entry fee to enter the Annapurna Conservation Area (ACA). This under-promoted tourist trail is indeed a welcome change from the Poon Hill circuit and its cousins; why not get off the beaten path and get comfortable?
