Overview

The easy Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek in the lower Annapurna region is the idle trip for all types of trekkers and family trips. The countryside surroundings are delightful. Having a short trekking itinerary, you can see the snowy peaks, green hills, forests, and ethnic villages. The trek is also an opportunity to view the Annapurna wonders and experience the naturally loaded landscape along with the ethnic inhabitants.

After an hour driving, trek to Poon Hill begins from Nayapul. It is a gateway to this trek and Annapurna base camp trekking. Exploring the rich natural vistas, you reach Tikhedhunga on the first day. The following day, you ascend through the stone steps and reach to Ulleri, which continually leads to Ghorepani. It is about 40 min walk to Poon Hill from where  Dhaulagiri I (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m),  Nilgiri (6940m) Hiunchuli (6441m), Fishtail and other peaks are seen at the closer distance. On the one hand, you are far from the hectic urban daily life and on the other the mind-blowing Himalayan views and green forests along with waterfalls make you feel rewarding. These diversities lie in the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP). Tadapani is the next destination that goes through the up and down the trail. Walking Banthanti, you reach to Tadapani. Ghandruk, the renowned village of Gurkhas is about 1.5 hrs trek down from Tadapani. The Ghorepani trek ends at Nayapul and drives to Pokhara.
