Ghalegaun (Nepali: घलेगाउँ) is a popular scenic tourist destination with an elevation of 2,100 meters above sea level in Lamjung District. Ghalegaun is also known as Asia’s model tourism village. It lies in Kwholasothar rural Municipality of Nepal. The village is situated approximately 108 km northwest of Kathmandu and 12.5 km northeast of Pokhara, Nepal.
The beautiful tourist village is surrounded by Annapurna Circuit. The SAARC Village Tourism Museum is one of the attractions of Ghalegaun which is inaugurated by Bidhya Devi Bhandari in 2017.
How to Reach Ghale Gaun?
Since Ghale Gaun is in Lamjung, the main road starts from the Besisahar which is from the Ghale Gaun Chowk. The locals in Besisahar are so friendly that they will surely guide you to the road to Ghale Gaun once you reach Besisahar. Now if you are coming from Kathmandu or Pokhara or any part of Nepal just follow the Prithivi Highway and once you reach Dumre, Tanahun head toward the Lamjung Besisahar. The distance from Dumre to Besisahar is about 50 km. But if you are coming from Gorkha or Lamjung then there is an alternative way to reach Besisahar from Sahid Lakhan Rural Municipality too.
Please take a note that the road from Dumre to Besisahar is a bit small and congested too. So be careful while riding. And also make sure to fill your fuel tank on the highway road because there is no gas station in Besisahar as well on the way to Ghale Gaun. So you must have enough fuel to reach and return from Ghale Gaun.
The distance from Beshisahar to Ghale Gaun is might be 6o km. It is not so far so can easily reach within 2 hr. while riding on a bike. The road is gravel from Besisahar. And it is in the process of getting black pitched. So the road is a bit too dusty here. Traveling to Ghale Gaun in the rainy season is also not too difficult.
You will reach Ghale Gaun within that day so you can stay there in the Homestay. The normal lodging and fooding might cost you around 1500 for normal. Then the next day you can roam the Ghale Gaun and go to the Bhujung Village which is just around 30 min bike ride from Ghale Gaun. I will make a separate blog of Bhujung Village so no need to worry about it. The cost is also the same as in the Ghale Gaun. So the next day you can see the Bhujung Village and can return too.
