Trip Information

The Ghorepani Poon-Hill trek is a short and easy holiday trek in Nepal that takes you to the beautiful surroundings of the Annapurna area. This trek is typically predominant amongst the voyagers and particularly trekkers who are searching for a couple of days to be close to nature and want to experience nearby culture in Nepal without including in high altitude climbs. There is no hazard at all of the high-altitude sicknesses on this trek. Taking the enduring pace through the wonderful Modi waterway valley, you delicately scale to Poon-Hill, which lies at the foot of the Annapurna massif. You will cherish every last-minute locating at awe-inspiring Himalayan Mountain perspectives of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South(7219m), Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail) (6997m), Manaslu and other snow-capped mountains and experience socially rich multi-ethnic towns along the course of the trek.
From Kathmandu, we drive to Pokhara taking after the Prithvi Highway and the next morning we drive from Pokhara to Nayapul, the trek’s beginning stage. Leaving Nayapul we will stroll along Modi River going through the woodland of rhododendron and reaching up to Tirkhedhunga town. The following day, we move for 2hrs through tough trails. Passing the towns of Ulleri and Banthanti and achieving the highest point of the Nangethanti Hill. At that point, we will descend from Nangethati to Ghorepani and remain for our overnight at the teahouse. After waking up before the break of first light, we’ll climb up to Poon Hill to see a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayan Mountains. From Poon Hill, we stroll down to the teahouse and take breakfast. At that point, we head down to Ghandruk town. This is an extremely prominent customary town of Gurung communities, where you can encounter their deep-rooted traditions and culture. After spending a night at Ghandruk town we will follow the course back to Nayapul and catch a land transport. We meet numerous kindred trekkers up and down the route along the trek.
