Enjoy the beauties of the Annapurna region on this short but worthwhile trek. With a lower altitude profile, trekkers require less time to acclimatise and the trek is less strenuous. Nevertheless, it offers a great taster of the region with impressive views and culturally interesting villages. The entire trail is well developed and cosy tea houses offer a welcoming atmosphere and good quality food and accommodation. The trek starts in Naya Pul after short drive from Pokahara – the traditional gateway to the Annapurna region.

Poon Hill itself is a very popular view point with fantastic views of Dhaulagiri (8,167m), famous Annapurna I (8,091m), Machapuchare (6993m) – also known as Mt. Fishtail due to its characteristic shape, Tukuche (6920m), Nilgiri (6940m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Annapurna South (7219m), Lamjung Himal (6931m) and many others. The trip includes a visit to Ghandruk, the second largest Gurung settlement.

We have been organizing the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek for long time with and it never fails to amaze – both us and the clients. After a stiff climb to Ghorepani & great views of Dhaulagiri & the Annapurna, this trek returns through the large Gurung village of Ghandruk, past wonderful views of Machapuchhare.
