Annapurna Trek Nepal

Ghorepani and Poon Hill Trek is one of the most popular treks in the Annapurna region of Nepal. At a maximum altitude of 3,210 meters above sea level, it is one of the best short and easy treks and can be completed any time of the year. The trek offers panoramic views of the stunning Annapurna Himalayan range and passes through beautiful rhododendron forests and insightful local Gurung and Magar villages.

Your adventure kicks off as you drive towards Nayapul which is the starting point of the trek. You will slowly hike through waterfalls, small settlements, bamboo, and rhododendron forests, before staying overnight at Tikhedhunga. The journey to Ghorepani and Poon Hill will then put us all to the test as we ascend 3,300 steps at Ulleri. Your efforts will be well worth it as you will be rewarded with great views of the Himalayas and the shade of the old trees.

The next day, before dawn, we hike up to Poon Hill to capture the best sunrise views over the Himalayas. The golden rays of the sun slowly rising through the Annapurna Himalayan range and neighboring peaks will mesmerize you. After sunrise views, you will start the descent towards Tadapani. Pass through the traditional Gurung village of Ghandruk before heading back to Pokhara. Finally ending our Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek driving back towards Kathmandu.
