Ghandruk and Ghorepani, both small villages in the lower reaches of the Annapurna Himalaya that are popular with trekkers, are only about 8.5 miles (14 kms) apart. But, the only way to get between them is on foot.
Duration: Several hours-a few days
How long it takes to get between Ghandruk and Ghorepani depends on the trekking route that you take. Ghorepani is an essential stop on the Poon Hill Trek, as it's just beneath Poon Hill. Ghandruk is an attractive Gurung town that's an essential stop on the short Ghandruk Trek, as well as other longer treks in the Annapurna Himalaya, such as the Annapurna Circuit. They are separated by valleys and ridges, so getting from Ghandruk to Ghorepani requires a bit of up-and-down and some stamina.
