After staying here for the night, you’ll head toward Ghorepani. Hiking up to Poon Hill, you’ll make your way down to Tadapani.   Passing by the village of Gurungs, Ghandruk, you’ll descend further to Kimche and drive back to Pokhara from here.

    Best Time to join Annapurna Panorama Trek

    Are you prepared to broaden your perspective and plan the Annapurna Panorama Trek soon? If so, the weather condition is one thing that you need to think about that can influence your entire trekking experience.

    Although the trek is accessible all year round, the best time would be between March-May and September-November. These months falls under the spring and autumn season. The weather is dry and mild during this time. With clear blue skies, the hike is enjoyable under the warm sunshine during these best times. You’ll get to walk in the thick forest of red rhododendron flowers in spring. In contrast, the breezy and fresh air of autumn will add pleasantness to the journey.

    Is This Adventure Right For You?

    To know if it is the perfect holiday for you, you first need to consider how long it would take to complete a hike before you set out. The Annapurna Panorama Trek is a nine days journey that will give you a taste of the Annapurna region. The next step would be to determine how difficult the hike is

    The Annapurna Panorama Trek is graded as an easy to moderate trek, depending on one's fitness level and prior hiking experience. The trail is well-marked and well-maintained, with moderate climbs and descents. The maximum altitude reached during the trek is around 3,210 meters at Poon Hill, which is not high enough to cause significant altitude-related symptoms for most people.

    That being said, it is still essential to be physically fit for the trek, as it involves walking for several hours each day on mountainous terrain.

    Additional Suggestions

    Do you want to know an alternative adventure to the Annapurna Panorama Trek to compare? Well, hold on because we’ll cover that in this section.

    The Mardi Himal Trek is also a 9-Day relatively new trekking route in the Annapurna region and offers stunning views of the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Mardi Himal. The trail takes you through beautiful rhododendron forests, traditional villages, and high-altitude landscapes. The course of this trek is less crowded and offers more panoramic views of the Himalayas. 

    The next one is the Instant Annapurna Base Camp Trek. It is a 9-Day journey that takes you to the base of the Annapurna massif, offering stunning views of the surrounding peaks. Compared to the Annapurna Panorama trek, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is a more challenging trek with a higher altitude and longer hours of walking each day. However, it offers a unique and spectacular view of the Annapurna massif.

      • Annapurna Poon Hill

        The whole experience was very good, Bhim is an excellent guide and I would really recommend him to anyone who is looking for guide in the hiking trail and trekking journey. He is efficient, and he has a vast amount of knowledge regarding the journey, and that was very helpful in my trek.

        I had undergone the Annapurna Panorama Trek and the views and sceneries were all amazing and very beautiful. The trekking was also very fun and I enjoyed it a lot. Bhim helped me with the trek and explained quite a lot of things on the way about everything we came across.

        The whole experience, in my opinion, went by pretty fast because it was enjoyable so much! Everything went smoothly and very diligently, the staff at Nepal Hiking Team provided the very best service regarding everything! Really enjoyed it! 100/100 would recommend!

      • Annapurna Panorama trek with my family

        I had the chance to undergo the Annapurna Panorama Trek with my family with Nepal Hiking Team. We had opted for the Panorama Trek because it was easy to do and did not need much physical exertion from us. And it was one of the most beautiful trekking journeys because we believe the Annapurna region of Nepal is one of the most beautiful regions out there. Hiking to Ghorepani and then to Poon Hill, both of these destinations provided us with gorgeous views of the mountains. The landscapes of the destinations were all also very beautiful. The accommodations that we stayed at were excellent and my whole family loved Nepal’s hospitality. Especially on the more isolated villages and far-off settlements, the people were extremely friendly and welcomed us like one of their own. The views of the mountain ranges from the vantage points are surely one that you would want to look at once in your life. The whole experience was extraordinary and utterly beautiful and amazing. Nepal Hiking Team is an amazing travel agency that took care of all. We should definitely be going with NHT again should we decide to visit Nepal in the future.

      • Wonderful Trip Highly recommend

        Our trip was fantastic! We selected a four day Annapurna Panorama Trek with Nepal Hiking Team. Ganga was professional and very responsive to our questions in emails prior to our arrival in Kathmandu. He met us at the airport and all went perfect from start to finish. We highly recommend Nepal Hiking Team. Our wonderful team – guide Arun, porter Prim and junior guide Suzan were top notch – professional, kind and a joy to be with. We felt safe and well cared for the full week we were in Nepal.

        My husband and I (mid 50’s) did the trek and while he has hiked Philmount Boy Scout Camp in New Mexico with our son, I am not an experienced hiker. While the trail was rugged and “Nepalese Flat” is not a cliché we accomplished the trek in almost “normally it takes” time. It was exhilarating. We are so glad we did it and want to thank Ganga and Team for their excellent service and care. We enthusiastically recommend Nepal Hiking Team!
