Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

8 Days

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a perfect and suitable trek route for all age bunches. The towering mountains, the high slopes, and the colossal scene it presents drag numerous trekkers to this impeccable region. Other than the wild display of the Himalayan mountain like Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Mount Machhepuchhre (6998m), Nilgiri (7041m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna II (7939m), Annapurna III (7555m) and Tukuche (6920m), Poonhill Trek furnishes trekkers with the occasions to mix together with the nearby villagers and understanding their way of living.

The trek commences after a short drive from Pokhara, at Nayapul where you come across a suspension bridge over the Modi Khola (River). A short hike along the bank of Modi Khola leads to a small village called Birethanti and as you climb the winding stone-paved trail through villages and adjoining farmland, you get remarkable glimpses of gigantic Machhapuchree Mountain. This trek then goes to Ghorepani

ni and ultimately to Poon hill, the center attraction of Ghorepani Poon Hill trek.

The major highlight of this trek is to see the sunrise from Poon Hill, 3210 m, an hour climb from Ghorepani, 2887 m. On this short expedition to Poon Hill, one can observe the entire mountain ranges of Annapurna Region, covered in red, orange, and pink shades of the sun at the sunset and sunrise, making it a truly magnificent view.  The sense of joy that comes to you while you see these beautiful mountains right in front of you is inexpressible; you can just feel and enjoy it.

After the revitalizing and awe-inspiring view of sunset and sunrise from Poon Hill, you descend steeply through forests and then the trail eases as you reach to Ghandruk (one of the favorite destination of internal tourists), a distinct village of Gurung ethnic group known for its traditional houses, great landscape, and rich culture. This village is the popular tourist destination that offers excellent close-up views of Annapurna South, Machhapuchare and Himchuli.

This short yet spectacular trek is sure to make you fall in love with the beautiful Mountains. The memory you carry with you about the amazing diversity of landscape and unique merger of ethnicity will make you want to see more. So, explore the unexplored, live through the magnificence of nature with the best trek experience.
