Sirubari Village Tour- 10 Days
Sirubari village is a totally unspoiled Gurung settlement set in hills at 1700 meters above sea level. The climate is ideal at any time during the September to June season with warm days and cool nights.
The village is a short drive and walk (soft adventure) from Pokhara, the major tourist center for the Annapurna region. It is reached from the road to Lumbini.
You will be welcomed into the community and invited to stay in the home of one of the village families. The accommodation is simple but comfortable with good bedding and clean toilet (not attached one) facilities. The food is delicious and you will be eating as one of the family. Each night there will be entertainment provided by the community. This will be in the form of traditional Gurung and Nepali dancing and singing, you can join in if you like.
As the locals are all Buddhist, the village Gompa (monastery), a simple but beautiful temple, will be a feature of your stay. There will be the chance to get a blessing from the resident lama before you leave.
Just because you are having only soft adventure not trekking it does not mean that you won't see the mountains. An easy walk above the village is a viewpoint at Dahare Deurali. At 2300 meters this is the highest point south of Pokhara and the views on a clear day are spectacular.
Spread before are rolling foothills dotted with isolated farming communities and crowned by an array of snow peaks that will leave you breathless. From Manaslu in the east, through Machhapuchare (Fishtail) and the Annapurna and around to Dhaulagiri the Himalayan giants all line up for your camera to capture.
