The Ghorepani Poonhill trek is a relatively short and exciting trek allowing you to experience the beauty of the Annapurna region and its rich cultural heritage. The trek culminates at Poon Hill, where we catch sunrise views of Mt Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Mt Fishtail (6,998m), Nilgiri (7,041m), Annapurna South (7,219m), Annapurna II (7,939m), Annapurna III (7,555m) and other surrounding peaks. The Ghorepani trek is one of the most popular in the region, particularly for those without the minimum 2 to 3 weeks needed to walk in the higher Himalayas. The trek, which starts close to Pokhara, can be combined with a trip to Chitwan National Park.

The Ghorepani Poonhill Trek Start Driving to Nayapul, the trek begins from Birethanti after check-in at the Annapurna Conservation Area Permit counter. Over the next few days, we walk, sometimes steeply, through traditional villages and rhododendron forests, eventually making our way to Ghorepani, home of the Magar ethnic group. The next morning we wake up early and make the 40-minute walk up to Poon Hill, where we enjoy fabulous sunrise views of the Annapurna Range. Then we trek down via Tadapani to Ghandruk, which is populated by the Gurung people.

Nepal Hiking Trek recommends the Springtime for this trip so you can see the rhododendron forests in full bloom. However, all seasons are suitable for the Ghorepani Poonhill trek. Please contact us for more details:
