If the Annapurna circuit is Everest’s entrée, then the Ghandruk loop is the hors d’oeuvre! A tantalizing morsel; not too heavy, not too light. Challenging, and yet accessible to anyone with an average degree of fitness and a willingness to take it slow. The perfect introduction to hiking in the Himalayas!
If you have even a passing interest in the landscape around you, and you know you’ll have some time on the Isle of Skye, this is one hike that you must put before all others. We left absolutely exhilarated by what we had experienced, and we thoroughly recommend adding it to your Isle of Skye itinerary!
