Gurung villages**

Nepal, Trekking round Annapurna, The gurung villages Gandrung, Landrung,


Unfortunately the main trail bypasses the old village cores of Gandrung, so that a lot of people miss it. After this happened twice to me, I bought to postcard and asked the people, till I found the right way. Gandrung is definitively one of the nicest villages and its worth staying at night. There are two old centres, one near the ACAP office and the other about  15 min walking to the west.  A lodge nearby is the Snowland lode.
