4th stage of the Annapurna balcony trek, Tadapani is a small village on the route back.

My suggestion:
Travel at the start of spring to walk through forests of rhododendrons in bloom.

To get to Tadapani from Ghorepani, we took a path that snaked along a lovely windy ridge dotted with lots of prayer flags.

As we went along, we moved ahead into a forest of incredible giant rhododendrons (Nepal's national tree), and then along a gorge and a stream. We even saw langur monkeys, all white bodies with black heads, jumping from tree to tree in the forest, a new discovery of my trip to Nepal .

You arrive in Tadapani after a long descent and a short climb. Once again, the village lies facing a really stunning panoramic view. I would advise you to find out if there's a hot shower in your guesthouse before reaching the village. Mine didn't have one and it would have been greatly appreciated after a long day's walk.

A pretty village in the Himalayas and a stage in several treks leaving from Pokhara.

My suggestion:
Except if you really want to camp it's pointless bringing a tent with you: you'll find 'tea houses' or little hotel-restaurants throughout all of the trekking routes.

Tadapani is a very charming little village embedded in an amazing landscape. I arrived there after a fortnight's walking around the Annapurnas. On the programme: a few hours walking in a rhododendron forest with a fairy-like feel to reach the village which is high up and made up almost entirely of hotels. As an aside: here it's tourism which supports the local economy, you must bear this in mind when bartering the price of your room.

I have an amazing memory of the place: the beautiful scenery with a backdrop of snowy peaks and especially the extremely warm welcome I received from the family of the tea house where I stayed... It's a place I recommend to everyone who wants to observe the Annapurnas from near or afar during their trip to Nepal!

I must add that I visited Nepal before the 2015 earthquake so it's possible that places have changed a lot since then.
