After some while you’d reach another Gurung village of Ghandruk where you can see houses made of stones. En route there are breathtaking views of mountains like Fishtail, Huinchuli, Annapurna South. Of course visiting the Gurung museum in Ghandruk is worth to find out more about the rich traditions of the Gurung people.
