Ghorepani and Tatopani Trek
Ghorepani and Tatopani (Natural hot spring) trekking offers the spectacular mountain scenery along with charming villages inhabited particularly by the Pun Gurungs and Magars, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the picturesque peak of Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Peak) dominating the skyline and the natural hot pond where we take bath for tired muscle. One of the important highlight of Ghorepani Tatopani trip is to make a climb on Pun Hill “public tower”, possibly the most spectacular mountain scrapes on Earth. When sun rises, it touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m) along with a maze of other peaks, there gradually appear, just like magic that your eye could not believe.
