Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is tremendously famous and one of the most popular treks in the Himalayan region of Annapurna foothills. Because of its beautiful mountains, landscapes, diverse cultures, and the decent guest houses, the trek is number one choice for nature lovers and adventure trekkers. Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is an altitude free and scenic journey that suites to anybody with a moderate level of fitness.  Children, above the 10 years will also enjoy the trek equally as their parents would do. Ghorepani Poon Hill trek starts in the lake city of Pokhara after a scenic 200km drive or a 25 minute mountain flight from Kathmandu. Pokhara is a beautiful city with an amazing lake and caves, we can enjoy boating on the Phewa lake. This lake city is also the starting point for some of the most famous treks in Annapurna region.

Ghorepani Poon Hill trek continues on a private coach to Nayapul from where the trek really begins. Crossing the suspension bridge over Modhi Khola River, we ascend through beautiful villages, terrace farming lands enjoying the views of fishtail towering above us. We continue our trail and walk mostly through lush, peace and quiet woods to Ghorepani at 2800m. Next day we make an early hike to Poonhill (3210m) to see the breathtaking views of mighty Annapurna ranges including Fishtail, Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Nilgiri and Dhaulagiri. Mount Annapurna I and Dhaulagiri are the over 8000 Meter Mountains in this region.  The grand sunrise view from Poon Hill will be another marvelous moment in this hike.

Ghorepani is a fascinating village with some decent teahouses and beautiful rhododendron forest. The village is also the gateway to Annapurna Himalayas. The trail leads to north from the village is a wonderful trek to Jomsom Muktinath and to the east is fascinating Annapurna base camp aka Annapurna sanctuary trek. We leave Ghorepani following the eastern trail to Tadapani and Ghandruk, both are fantastic villages for stunning views of the Annapurna South and Fistail. Ghandruk is one of the largest Gurung villages on the lap of the Annapurna with its traditional houses, rich culture and picturesque setting below fishtail mountain.  Walking down through the beautiful steps we make a loop at Birethanti and take a private coach drive from Nayapul to Pohkara. Or we can extend our trek for two more days walking through Pothana village to Dhampus village and then to Dhampus Phedi from where we have half an hour drive to Pokhara.
Ghorepani Poon Hill trek can also combine with two nights three days wildlife safari in the tropical Chitwan National park.
