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.

Useful Information

Your Meals During the Trek

During long treks, good nutrition is very important. Beyond the practical aspects, delicious food enhances every holiday. At Incredible Himalayan Sherpa Adventures, we make sure you experience high quality, locally sourced dishes. While most guest houses offer a wide variety of food, we highly recommend the local options which are freshly prepared from locally farmed produce. Popular dishes include Tsampak (the roasted flour of ground barley) with butter and the salted Tibetan tea, Sengong (paste of buckwheat flour with hot water) with Himalaya Nettle or garlic soup which can be very invigorating after a long day. And for your carbs, some boiled chilly potatoes – if you can stand the heat. Please inform us of special dietary needs but keep in mind that the trek leads through remote areas and it will not always be possible to meet specific requirements. In this case you might have to bring suitable meals instead.

Individual vs Group Trips

Our trips are calculated as private treks. You will have your own guide and can determine your own itinerary. This gives you the most flexibility. If you, however, prefer to join a group, depending on dates and routes, this can be organized as well.
