The trek kicks off at Nayapul and after watching a resplendent sunrise at Ghorepani and stopping over at the beautiful village of Deurali, and finishes at Ghandruk.
Any time of the year that you may take this trek, it is likely that you will find the trail fairly crowded, given it is highly popular. On the plus side, on this trail, homestays and guesthouses are equipped with electricity, running hot water, and even 24x7 Wi-Fi!
