Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a great opportunity for just about everyone to experience the beauty of the Himalayas with little or no difficulty. This easy trekking route has no strenuous climbs and the hikes are pretty straightforward. Enjoy this beautiful trek to the vantage point and soak into the stunning views of the Annapurna and Machhapuchhre peaks. 

The trek to Ghorepani and Poonhill can be completed in two ways, either with a drive or with a hike from the half way. Usually, the hike is the most suitable and recommended one as it offers glimpses of the real Nepal. However, the drive also exerts the same properties and is suitable for people running short on time.  

This trekking trip starts with a long tiring drive along the Prithvi Highway to the Cherrapunji of Nepal, Pokhara. From there, drive further to get to Nayapul for the start of the trek. From there, it is an easy hike until we get to Ghorepani and Poohill. Besides such villages, the village of Ghandruk also exert fantastic views of the Annapurna Massif. Ghandruk is called by many as the most photogenic place on the Annapurna Region.  

Most of the hikes in the Annapurna Regiontakes us through the villages with Gurung and Magar religion. This trek offers its visitors some insights on the way of living of the brave Gurung and Magar locality.  

With the major attraction of this trek being the sunrise view from above the Poonhill, you will be able to have a rewarding 360-degree show of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Ranges. This trek has also been called the Photographer's Paradise as the views from this location exert a truly heavenly beauty.
