Ghoerpani was one of my best destinations while visiting Nepal. Ghoerpani is a great location for seeing mountains. Great trials like the Annapurna trial can be seen from this place. Mountains like Huinchuly and Macchapucchera can be seen from this place and we finished our trekking without any difficulty. our trekking was managed in such a way that no one can imagine it was so good all thanks to Nepal Treks And Tour.

This trek is one of the most interesting treks done in Annapurna reason of Nepal. It is also popular due to its short durability of time and can be finished in a short period of time. So I recommend these treks to that tourist who has a really short time to stay in Nepal.
