Cultural Attractions:

Ghalegaun is a model village for experiencing the typical culture and lifestyles of the Gurung people. Traditional customs are still followed during births, deaths, marriages and other rituals. Age-old cultural dances like Jyaure, Serka, Dohori, Ghatu, Sorathi, Jankri etc are performed on various occasions accompanied by different musical instruments and with dancers in traditional dresses. Visitors to Ghalegaun are welcomed by offering garlands and tika while music and dances are performed. Even traditional farewell songs are sung when guests depart. Nepali New Year and Buddha Jayanti are celebrated with traditional dance called Ghatu. The people of Ghalegaun keep goats and sheep and use wool from these animals to make woolen products. They make clothes and bags from nettle fiber (Allo Cloth) and scarf, towels and shawls from the wool of angora rabbits. Ironsmiths make different iron products. Craftsmen produce a whole of different products from bamboo. This trekking area is diverse with cultural and ethnic variation. While most of the settlers are of Gurungs and Magars ethnicities, there are also Damai, Kaami, Bahun, Chhetries and many other castes of Hindu religion. Most of them are farmers. The walk allows one to observe the locals working on their fields. In spring, there will be rhododendrons and other flowers. In autumn you will see the harvest. This trekking is mesmerizing and spectacular for its views which range from the world’s 8th highest mountain Mt. Manasalu (8,163m) and its range, Boudha Himal, Lumjung Himal, Mt. Machhapuchare, and the world’s 10th highest peak Annapurna I (8,091m) and its range. This trip includes a visit to the Museum of Gurung society in Ghale Gaun as well. This museum is in a small house filled with Gurung treasures collected from their ancestors. Another fascinating thing about this trek is that the villagers here grow tea themselves. Unlike most of the city dwellers and people from other villages, they don't drink the composite tea. They make their own pure organic tea. You can even see the tea garden along the route. At night, the group will be divided with 3-4 people assigned to each house. You will also be separated at lunch time. Villages are small so you will be able to meet each other at any time. Another point to be noted for this trip is that we have to get our lunch packed before heading out to some place that do not have lunch facilities. In some cases, we can even inform such places in advance to have our lunch ready for the day.
