A village and stop off point at the start of the trek around the Annapurnas, which also shares the name of one of the country's highest mountains.

My suggestion:
If you're tired from the bus journey from Pokhara, you can also stop off in the village before, Bhulbhule.

Ngadi is a pretty little village embedded in a luscious tropical environment. The road leading there also offers amazing views over the mountain of the same name.

I only stopped off there quickly to drink a cup of tea on the second day of walking but the spot seemed charming. But it must still be said that though you'll reach it by taking well marked paths of course, from time to time you'll also take a road which isn't very pleasant. Especially considering all the dust raised every time a jeep goes past. What's more, if you ever include the Annapurna tour in your Nepalese itinerary, be aware that it is possible to start the walk a little higher up than the star of this piece, in the village Dharapani, by taking a jeep to Besisahar (though this is an option which will definitely not please purists).

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