Overview

Ghorepani Poonhill Australian Cap loop is an old and well-known trekking route that takes seven days and leads to Ghandruk and Chhomrong. The scenic beauty of the Modi river valley, as well as beautiful clustered Gurung villages in Ghandruk,  Landruk, Tolka Pothana, and Dhampus, were all part of this path.

Rolling up and down the well-marked mountain trails provides some of the most stunning views and amazing experiences on the planet.
