In the morning we drive from Pokhara to Nayapul on Pokhara-Baglung highway for one hour. We proceed to Birethanti (1025 m) on an easy and busy trail. There is a large and prosperous town with a winding street paved with large stones. We crossed the Suspension bridge of Modi Khola (river) and we continue our walk on bank of the river. A further three hour's walk (flat and gentle ascent walk) we arrive at Syauli Bazar (1170 m) where we stop for our lunch. The trail is now on the bottom of the river valley, passing through a lovely birch forest, then following alongside the river on a rough trail to the extensive rice terraces. The trails keep heading over hill terraced fields and onto a suspension bridge over the Sadhu Khola. The trail drops on uphill stone staircase, then traverses high above of the river on a wide stone paved lanes. After four hours walk we will arrive at Ghandruk (1940 m), a Gurung village.
