A maze of small paths leads down through terraced fields to a large suspension bridge over the Kimring Khola. After the bridge, we climb up past a school and along the terraces to the small village of Klisigo Chiukle. After a while we will see a succession of waterfalls. From here the trail climbs a little, continuing along the terraces to join the main Ghandrung- Chomrong route. Chomrong itself is a beautiful village, typically Gurung in style, situated in the lap of the great Annapurna massif.
