Ghorepani Poonhill Trek (2,874m)

The Ghorepani Pook Hill trek is perhaps the ultimate short trek in the Himalayas! Suitable for people of all ages, particularly for families with children, this trek can be 6 to 7 days long and still gets into the heart of the Annapurna. Poon Hill (3,210m) is the ultimate viewing point for the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri Tukuche, varaha Shikhar, and Lamjung Himal.

Hiking up to Poon Hill to watch the sunrise over these stunning snow-covered mountains is something to be treasured. This trek also includes hiking through colorful villages and rhododendron forests, with the backdrop of the Annapurna always present.

Even for experienced trekkers, this is a great introduction to the Himalayas, especially if time is short. Accommodation along this established route is very comfortable, and the menus are not disappointing. And, of course, the mountains never disappoint either in their fully photogenic beauty.

The Ghorepani Pookn Hill Trek is considered an easy trek in Nepal. That’s not to say you can go straight from your couch to the mountains. A reasonable level of fitness is required. But it can also be a family trek, with children and older relatives being able to participate and enjoy themselves.

This trek ends in Kathmandu with a day at the start and another day at the end in Pokhara. This is a beautiful way to start and end your trek. Pokhara is right in the Annapurna Range Mountains, so this will be a trek filled with snow-covered mountains and beautiful landscapes.
As on most treks, the day starts early-round 6 or 7 am. Except for the day when you climb up Poon Hill. That day starts before dawn, to make it up the hill to watch the spectacular sunrise over the mountains. Then you hike back for breakfast before heading off to the next location.

On each day, after breakfast, you set off with your guide, who will be able to point out the most interesting sights and let you know the names of the mountains on the way.
Lunch on treks is taken in teahouses along the way. On arrival at the teahouse (trekking lodge) where you are going to sleep, it is best to order dinner straight away to give them time to prepare it. You can chat with other trekkers and your guide during and after diner.
