Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking presents a short and compatible trek in the beautiful Annapurna Region of Nepal. Trekking in the Ghorepani and Poon Hill region, you would be presented with beguiling views of the panorama of the Annapurna vistas as well many of its surrounding peaks like Gangapurna, Annapurna I, II, II, Annapurna South, the Nilgiri peak, Dhaulagiri Mountain, Machhapuchhre Himal and many more. The trekking trail along Ghorepani and Poon Hill are adorned majestically with the verdancy of rhododendron trees in bloom and alpine vegetations of cedar, juniper and birch. These lush rich natural foliages along the trail provide a natural canopy for the travelers and the ambiance of the trekking trails are converted into silken gossamers by the blossoming of florescent quiddities like purple foxgloves, ruby poppies and blue hydrangeas. The dense fir forests through which the trekking trails pass are also home to the unique animal and avifauna of the Annapurna Region. The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek starts from the jovial Lake-side city of Pokhara decorated ever so opulently with the back drop of the Annapurna massifs. Embedded with cerulean lakes and various water-bodies, Pokhara is a city full of wonderful natural quintessence. The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking is a journey that lets you enjoy the ravishing pulchritude of the Annapurna Region in a relatively short amount of time.

Starting your journey from the village of Nayapul near Pokhara, you would be hiking through many different vibrant and dainty villages and settlements all along the trail. These excursions to the villages allow you to observe the local traditions and customs of the people up close, and you will also be visiting many monasteries, gumbas, chaityas, Bihars and places of worship along the trekking journey. The spires of the monasteries are ornamented beautifully with colorful prayer flags that contrast serenely against the emerald landscape. The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking allows you to interact with the people and thus be a bit enlightened about their rituals and way of life at the remote settlements in the bosom of iridescent hillocks. At Ghorepani, the views of the snowy mountain peaks are absolutely magnificent.

Poon Hill is the major attraction of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking, as it is a popular vantage point that lets you experience the enormity of the Annapurna vistas at once. The Sun rise and the Sun set views from Poon Hill are utterly heavenly. The ascending Sun amidst the Annapurna ranges changing the tincture of the mountain peaks from opal to a cascade of molten gold and burning saffron is an adoringly celestial sight. The prolific landscape of Poon Hill, decorated splendidly with the flow of silver serpentine rivers that present themselves like ethereal stitching in the jaded continuity of the terrain is breath-taking. The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek lets you endeavor the beauty of the mountains, the vibrancy of the chartreuse landscapes, glorious sunrises and sunsets, lush forests, ebullient rivers, dainty valleys and cyan lakes all incorporated in a single context. So come along with Nepal Hiking Team in this beautiful trekking journey that presents to you an absolutely bewitching natural painting of an omnipotent charisma.

We also have alternative trekking packages for the Annapurna region, like our Annapurna Base Camp Trek that takes you to the base camp of mount Annapurna, and our Short Annapurna Trek package that lets you experience the magnificence of the mountains in a relatively short amount of time.

Hung Wei , California, USA

I did the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with my friend in Nepal and our adventure of trekking was the most thrilling experience! I and my friend had wanted to come on this holiday for the longest of time and we had decided to go ahead with the trek with Nepal Hiking Team and it was most inspiring! The Annapurna Region is a wonderful place in Nepal for trekking and the views of the mountains from Poon Hill and from Ghorepani were sublime! It was the most relaxing trekking journey and we utterly enjoyed it to the fullest. The accommodations at the trek with the guesthouses and the lodges were comfortable, and I think for us, the absolutely best part of the whole trek was watching the sunrise and the sunset from vantage point at Poon Hill. Our guide had said that the scene of the sun rising and sun setting from behind the mountain was the one not to be missed and it proved to be the best scenes of our entire lives. Watching the sun’s rays slowly spread across the snow of the mountains, it was divine! I am so glad that I have the image of that beautiful scene in my mind now, and to experience it firsthand from the vantage point, that was the most beautiful and angelic sights I had ever witnessed. The trek was wonderful; the people from Nepal Hiking Team who helped us along our trekking journey and made everything easy were very helpful and friendly. Both I and my friend who did the trek with me are very happy with how everything turned out and I recommend Nepal Hiking Team definitely!
