10 Days Annapurna Poon Hill Ghorepani Ghandruk Homestay Trek

Homestay Trek gives you the chance to get to know a destination better. Although they are in slightly more off the beaten track, they are all in fascinating places that you might not have thought of going to otherwise. Wherever you go, your hosts will prepare traditional meals. Even if dal bhat is the national favourite, it is guaranteed to be different wherever you go. With this homestay trek, you know that a significant proportion of the money you spend is going straight into the pocket of an individual or community. The beneficial trickle-down effect of your money spent in the local economy has much greater impact and helps poor communities.
