    Trip Overview

    Trip Highlights

    • A short and exciting trek in Lower Annapurna
    • Ghorepani, the Magar community
    • Poon Hill, the best viewpoint of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri panoramas
    • Ghandruk, the village of Gurkhas
    • Rhododendron forest dominated trail

    Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a short and lovely excursion in the lower Annapurna region.  It is an easy trek that does not require acclimatization or previous trekking experience. The trek is an opportunity to view the beat Himalayan attractions of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu region peaks and the stunning sunrise view over them. This is why the trek is also popular as an Annapurna sunrise trek. Poon Hill (3210 meters) is the highest point of this trek.

    Poon Hill trekking trail is gentle, however, you have to walk continually up and down the route. The 5-day walk to Ghorepani Poon Hill begins from Nayapul with a complete arrangement of Nepal Kameleon Holidays. For three days, you walk through the evergreen rhododendron forest. In Spring, the trek becomes exceedingly outstanding with the blooming of various rhododendron species. This is one of the super parts of the Ghorepani trekking. During the trek, you pass through the ethnic Magar and Gurung villages (Ghorepani and Ghandruk), where you can explore the ethnic culture and hospitality. The trek makes a circuit and your trek descends through the village of Gurkhas- Ghandruk and ends the trek at Nayapul and drives back to Pokhara.

    Nepal Kameleon Holidays organize Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with your suitable itinerary. We combine this trek with the Chitwan National Park Tour, where you can enjoy jungle safari activities. This is the best trip recommended for you. Please, feel free to contact us for your further inquiries.

    Best Season for Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking

    Spring offers the best view of the entire region of blooming rhododendron flowers. Spring is great with warm days and clear weather. The giant Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna region look so dazzling. March-April and May are excellent months for trekking in Annapurna. 

    Autumn is another excellent season for the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek and exploration of the massif Annapurna peaks. If you are trekking in the autumn season, try to manage in the October-November months. However, December and January are also great as it is a lower altitude trek (up to 3210 meters).

      Ghorepani Trek with Bhanu

      Trekking to Ghorepani Poon Hill was the best memory for me and my husband. A short trek in the lower Annapurna region offered us a sweet memory. We hiked to Poon Hill early in the morning and enjoyed the sunrise view over the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range. Food and accommodation were great as well. Bhanu was so friendly and flexible guide as he managed our continually changing schedule. He had such patience and we liked it very much.
