Ghorepani Poon hill trekking is also known as small Annapurna Circuit trekking famous for the tantalizing sunrise view over the mountains and beautiful ethnic villages. It is suitable for those beginners and people who do not have sufficient time to spend in trek but are willing to take all the advantages. We don’t have to encounter any hardships that trekkers generally face during high altitude trekking.

Ghorepani Poon hill Trekking begins from the beautiful city Pokhara which is 6 hrs bus ride or 30 minute flight away from Kathmandu. The walking trail begins from Nayapul, Birethanti following the banks of river with scenery of waterfall, high green forest. After crossing Ulleri village, we will reach Ghorepani from where we can see good view of Annapurna Mountain range. Reach to the Poon hill early in the morning and get mesmerized by the sunrise view over the spectacular mountains.

Poon hill is such a point which shows a wide range of high mountain from west to east about 650 km spreaded including Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapura ranges , Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Nilgiri and many other peaks. The panoramic view of early morning shimmering light on all these high mountains is beyond imagination.
