   The whole Ghorepani is densely forested with Rhododendron trees, the national flower of Nepal. Every spring it is tremendous scenery to watch these forests in bloom with the panorama of the high mountains on the skyline. From Ghorepani, the trekking route is descended towards the beautiful Gurung (name of a tribe) village of Ghandruk on the lap of the Annapurna.
