Ghorepani is the village on the way to classic salt trading route. The village is located northwest of Pokhara, in the vicinity of ‘Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Range’. The mountain pass was used by caravans as a resting place after a big climb from the kaligandaki valley. Hence the place got its name after the water drinking place for horses.
Ghandruk still retains their age-old animistic and Shamanism (Jhankri) practices. Here, the modern Tibetan Buddhism and ancient ‘Bon’ practices come together.
