About Trip:

The Ghorepani / Poon Hill trek is considered by many as the best short trek in Nepal and for good reason. It offers a week of trekking in the foothills of the Annapurna mountain range with breathtaking panoramic views of the majestic Himalayas while bringing you to the top of one of Nepal’s most popular hills and viewpoints, Poon-Hill (3210 m). In a short amount of time the Ghorepani/Poon Hill Trek takes you through captivating local Gurung villages and communities, lush rhododendron forests and possibly some of the best panoramic viewpoints of the Himalayan mountains of Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Nilgiri (7061 m), Annapurna I (8091 m) and Annapurna South (7219 m).

The Ghorepani / Poon Hill trek sets off from the beautiful lake-city of Pokhara with a 1.5-hour drive to Nayapul from where we will trek to Ghorepani. The following day is of the highlights of the trek as we hike to Poon Hill for the unforgettable panoramic view of the Himalayas. We will continue our trek passing two other amazing view points on our way before having the pleasure of enjoying ourselves in the natural hot springs in Jhinuadanda, before heading back to Pokhara.

The Ghorepani / Poon Hill trek is rated as easy to moderate, accommodating trekkers of all ages and experience levels. It is one of the best opportunities to experience the wonderful nature and culture of Nepal in a short amount of time and is an excellent trek for solo trekkers as well as families and larger groups.

Amazing Trip!!

Amazing Trip!!

Rating:  

I travelled with Raj, Rabin, and Ganga in 2014. It was an amazing trek to Ghorepani. They met us in Kathmandu and we travelled together to Pokhara. We did paragliding in Pokhara and then trekked for 3 days before returning to Kathmandu. The whole experience was full of fun and laughter. One member of our party was sick during the trek and Raj made sure she got what she needed. We saw other guides who went way ahead of their groups, that never happened. I couldn't give a better recommendation! When I go back to Nepal I will certainly use Nepal Trekking Experts!
