Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek - 11 Days Package

The warmth of the local folks with the lovely landscapes that can be viewed from Poon Hill, a colorful small village that also doubles up as a box office viewpoint based inside the Annapurna Conservation Area at the height of 3210m - is something more than what you actually bargained for. The great views of fishtail Machhapuchre peak & the Modikhola River is a treat to enjoy. Close by, there are well-marked trails to hike around, breathtaking mountains to gaze at, fishes to catch & lovely rare birds to spot; this is actually what you experience on this trip.

Gorgeous rhododendrons, stunning sunrise & sunsets are also a welcome bonus you relish on this trip. It’s awesome wherever you go.

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek can be done throughout the year. But it’s not wise to do it in the Monsoons (July to August).

The trip begins from Nayapul by crossing the airy suspension bridge over Modi Khola River after one hour cruise from Pokhara. And then the trail leads up north of the Valley of Mardi River until Birethanti. Birethanti is a junction point that leads to the Annapurna sanctuary and Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. The trail then leaves the valley by going up Bhurung Khola stream. We then reach the wonderful village of Ghandruk inhabited by Gurung, Magar and Thakali communities.

The Gurungs are also well-known Gurkha soldiers serving in several armies throughout the world. The Gurung culture museum at Ghandruk is a key attraction in the village. This trek presents chances for a lifetime experience of Nepal’s rural culture. This is an outing of great experiences you will remember for one long, long time.

This 11-day trip is designed for those travelers who have the desire to walk in the beautiful countrysides with beautiful mountain views along with their family on a short holiday. If the trekkers looking for the more rough and tough demanding trek in the Annapurna region then please consider our Annapurna circuit trek, Annapurna Sanctuary trek. Check out our well-planned itinerary for The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek.
