Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is one of the short, light and comfortable treks in the Annapurna region. The trek offers us the chance to have close-up views of mountains and hilly vistas along the way. We will mostly be doing uphill climbing until reaching the popular viewpoint of Poonhill. The trail takes us through hills, fields, valleys and Magar and Gurung villages. The beauty of streams, rivers, and waterfalls along the way help to give the cool and soothing sensation during the arduous walk. The colorful rhododendron forests and green fields, add beauty to the trek.

During the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, we will stop by at restaurants along the way where they serve traditional Nepali food- Daal, Bhat, curry, and Achar. You will have a chance to taste the traditional and authentic Nepali cuisine. The warm hospitality you receive at the hotels is really appreciative. We will be spending our nights in the hotels at our stopping places.

The major highlight of the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a morning sunrise view from the Poonhill that gives a majestic view of Himalayan vista when the sunrise over the peaks. The stunning snow-capped peaks like Annapurna I ( a tenth highest mountain in the world), Annapurna South, Himchuli, Mt Fishtail (Machhapuchre), Nilgiri south, Tukuche peak, Mt Dhaulagiri I ( a seventh highest mountain in the world)and others can be viewed close from there. We will also be stopping and taking rest at different places during the trek to enjoy and admire the natural beauty. Sometimes the trail can be slippery during the rainfall and snowfall and we have to be extra careful during that time. The trails are mostly stone stepped and some are also in the rocky areas. Throughout the trek, the breathtaking view of snowy peaks contrasted with the green landscapes will keep you rejuvenated and make you feel exhilarated.  Once you try out this trek we are sure you would want to tread this trail many times in the future as well.

    Amazing trekking to Poon Hill

    It’s my pleasure to share the great experience I had during our trekking to Poon Hill. Everything was well planned by the manager Sittal and guided by Prakash. The journey started in Kathmandu and everywhere we stopped there were a taxi waiting for us (when it was necessary), a hotel booked (I highly recommend the one we stayed in Pokhara called Batika), the tea house during the trekking were fair enough and the simplicity and knowledge presented by the guide gave us power to continue during the hard time and more than that, we knew we were safe during the trip. Don’t think twice: These guys are extremely good and professionals and with them you’ll get just good memories from your trekking!
