Lwang village tour is one of the best tours for cultural immersion experience in Nepal. The village at the foothills of Mt Fishtail, have been warmly welcoming into their house and day to day life through the community homestay program. Located at 1,550 m, Lwang is a charming Gurung village, some 30 km northwest of Pokhara. Gurung ethnic group dominates the foothills of Annapurna. They were the most preferred recruits among Gurkha soldiers with their proud history. Being off the main tourist trail of Annapurna, Lwang village still retains its traditional, self-sufficient happy life. The village has preserved their cultural heritage very well to feel the essence of authentic Nepalese village.
Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) and the homestay management committee have taken care of the hygiene and basics to host tourists.
