Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region of Nepal which can be completed in a short duration, any time of the year. This trek does not necessarily require any past experience. It is one of the best short and easy treks which offers panoramic views of stunning Annapurna Himalayan range while passing through beautiful rhododendron forest and insightful local Gurung and Magar villages. At a maximum altitude of 3,210 meters above sea level, it is one of the most popular short treks in Nepal.
Our Nepal Ghorepani Trek kicks off as we drive towards Nayapul which is the starting point of the trek. Slowly hiking through waterfalls, small settlements, bamboo and rhododendron forests, we stay overnight at Tikhedhunga. The journey through nature to Ghorepani and Poon Hill then tests our fitness as we ascend 3,300 steps at Ulleri which rewards us with great views of the Himalayas hiding in the shade of the trees. Capture the perfect picture of landscapes, trees, and the Himalayas at this point. Pushing ourselves further for a couple of hours we arrive at Ghorepani village.
The next day before dawn we hike up to Poon Hill to capture the best sunrise views over the Himalayas. You will be mesmerized as you see the golden rays of the sun slowly rising through the Annapurna Himalayan range, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Machhapuchre, Mt. Nilgiri, Tukuche peak, Lamjung Himal and other neighboring peaks. After sunrise views, we descend towards Tadapani. Further trekking through the insightful cultural and traditional Gurung village of Ghandruk; we will head back to Pokhara and then finally end our Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek by driving towards Kathmandu.
