GHOREPANI-POONHILL TREK

  1. Ghorepani/Poon Hill Trek is a colorful short foray into the Annapurna region. The trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests and past icy waterfalls where you stop to cool your face. Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which will be revealed to you as you reach the high points of your trek. This trek, in the Annapurna foothills of the view point on Poonhill, offers all the best of trekking in Nepal.

  2. Enjoy trekking in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs, Magars, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the picturesque peak of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) Peak dominating the skyline.

  3. At the climax of this trek you will climb Poonhill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountains capes on earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8167 m) and Annapurna (8091 m) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. It is a rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature amidst the beautiful landscape.
