GHOREPANI-POONHILL TREK


With the perfect blend of beauty and adventure, it comes as no surprise that the Ghorepani-Poon Hill trek is the most demanding trek in the Annapurna Region. Travel through beautiful oak and rhododendron forests, terraced paddy fields, alpine lakes, water falls, sparkling clear streams, flag-festooned bridges and glorious mountain peaks, which all add to the heavenly beauty of this trek.

And let’s not forget the main highlight of this trek - the arresting sunrise/sunset from Poon Hill that magnifies the beauty of the crags and mountains that make up the Himalaya mountains! This peaceful trek also delivers panoramic views of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Annapurna, and Manaslu ranges, along with Lamjung, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, Tukuche and various other peaks. Along the way we also pass through various quaint old villages like Bhanthati, Tikhedunga, Uller, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk where the Gurung and Magar culture predominates. 

Along with astounding natural wonders and the diverse cultures of this region, this trek is very popular for its short and easy routes. An 8-day trek that takes you to the highest elevation of 3,210m and is suitable for all age groups, you’ll feel right at home amongst the communities you visit, as their warm hospitality eases any pangs of homesickness you might be feeling. 

Trip Highlights

    • En route to a classic-short hike in Annapurna sanctuary the Ghorepani-Poon Hill trek avidly greets visitors with astounding views of heaven touching peaks. 

    • The comparatively more developed trek of Ghorepani Poon Hill makes it an elevating and accessible experience for any age group.

    • Blessed with a moderate temperature and offering captivating sights of the Himalayas, this trek is ventured throughout the year. Your ascent will be accompanied by snow in winters, while the green woodland and moss veiled trails will make you fall head over heels in summer.

    • Explore the gateway to Nepal’s countless expeditions and trails; the city of Pokhara. The city is internationally venerated to serve you with mouthwatering Nepalese, Indian, and continental foods. Hop into lakeside paradise before embarking your trail in the Annapurna region, or take the time here to relax and rejuvenate your mind, body and soul after your trek.

    • The dove-white mountains of Annapurna soaring into the skies glitter with a fine silver lining when the first rays of sun emerge behind the Himalayas awakening the sleeping valleys. This majestic moment will be observed by a pre-dawn climb to Poon Hill (3,210m) which will leave you sunk in the bliss of your own thoughts for a while. 

    • Experience the promising views of photogenic Himalayas all along your journey, including Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Machhapuchhare (6,993m) peaks. Since the trail is people-friendly, you need not worry about altitude sickness as you proceed to summit the trail. It is a go-ahead for amateurs who aren’t much into climbing but want ‘GREAT VIBES’ from the ever-inspiring Himalayas. 

    • Turn over a new leaf as you go through the bucolic lifestyle of the Gurung village at Ghandruk. This resilient mountain tribe has a rich culture to explore, and it’s delightful to be greeted in small lodges with tummy-licious cuisines by convivial inhabitants of the Himalayas.

    • Whatever your mood is, you always feel calm and nice near nature… The trail is skewed with lush green foliage and terraced rice fields, along with some ever-running and sometimes snowy waterfalls just a short walk from your accommodation.

    • Brace yourself to get drowned in the red blooming ocean of rhododendrons lying in the heart of the Himalayas. You’ll forget ‘Alice’s adventures in wonderland’ once you navigate through the exquisite rhododendron forest in Ghorepani which is the largest of its kind in Nepal.
