The Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a colorful short foray into the Annapurna region. The trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests, and past icy waterfalls. Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains and horizons to be revealed to you as you reach the high points of the trek.
This trek in the Annapurna foothills offers all the best of trekking in Nepal. You will experience trekking past the spectacular mountain scenery, through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs and Magars, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas. The picturesque peaks of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak), will be dominating the skyline in the background during your trek. At the climax of this trek, you will ascend Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountains and sunrises on Earth. As the sun rises and touches the snow-capped summits, the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m.) and Annapurna (8,091m.), along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear. This is a rewarding trek and one of the most popular in Nepal.
