Comparatively speaking Thanchok is larger than the previous village of Kurung,
but then Kurung is really small. Thanchok has only a handful of lodges and to
the north-west of the village is a school, "Shree Deen Dayalu Lower Secondary
school". There is also a health post here just in case you need to visit one.
Thanchok is also the northern limit of maize cultivation in Marshyangdi valley
and the houses here are flat roofed which is the case for all houses in Manang
district. Please refer to our route description from Kurung to Thanchok if you
don't want to miss this village as there are two options just before the
Evergreen hotel in Kurung. The right one will get you to the village of
Thanchok, get it?
