About Trip

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 route. The 5 day walking 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 end the trek at Nayapul and drive 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 the jungle safari activities. This is the best trip recommended for you. Please, feel free to contact us for your further inquiries.
