About Ghorepani Poonhill Trek

Backpackers craving stunning vistas, a taste of Gurung and Magar village life, and a panoramic view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges go to the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. Many snow-capped summits could be observed, including Annapurna South (7219m), Machapuchare (6993m), Hiunchuli, Annapurna III, Dhampus peak, and Dhaulagiri II. Feel the warmth of the locals as you go through the villages of Ulleri, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk.Probably one of the best quick treks in Nepal's Annapurna Region is the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. From the 3210-meter-high Poonhill Mountain, this trip provides outstanding perspectives of the early dawn. The greatest approach to see the magnificent Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges are from Ghorepani Poonhill. Despite being shorter and lower in height (up to 3200 meters), the trek allows you to see the hidden beauty of the Annapurna region in a small space of time.

The Poon Hill Trek takes you through lush greenery featuring gorgeous red rhododendrons that make you would like to take out your camera. The Annapurna Circuit is the nation's most attractive trek. This hike is ideal for families who want to see the spectacular vistas without having to acclimate to higher altitudes. Because of the easy level of walking required, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking is the most popular trip as altitude sickness isn't a possibility. Except for the monsoon season, this trek is possible all year. This path is ideal for novices or those with limited time in Nepal.

Upon arriving at Tikhedunga, the trail takes us through the Modi Khola Valley. Once traversing the Modi Khola suspension bridge, we commence the 3300-step climb up to Ulleri hill, traversing through a rhododendron forest on our way to Ghorepani's Magar Village (2855m). If you want to see the sunrise over the Annapurna Ranges, get up in the morning and hike Poon Hill. The steady increase of the sun reflected off the mountains will mesmerize you and appreciate your efforts.

Tips & Ideas

Why Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with families?

The Annapurna Poon Hill Trek is a 12-day trek that concludes in Poon Hill, where you will reach the highest point on the trek (3210m). It is an average height trip, and therefore there are fewer possibilities of altitude sickness than on other Nepalese treks. Furthermore, as the climb proceeds to the highest point, the possibilities of being ill are reduced even further. Additionally, the route is not very difficult on the legs, encouraging individuals of all ages to face it calmly. Conversely, if children find it extremely difficult to walk, pony rides are available for hire.

 Along with that, trekkers can interact with nature and the local people as well. Also, kids can be well known about the diverse cultural groups living in the Annapurna region. It is an ideal chance to teach kids about different ethnic groups and reacquaint nature.

During spring, the lush and green forests, clean and clear skies, mountain vistas are clearer than ever. Trekking is possible throughout all the seasons: Spring Autumn, Monsoon, and winter. However, due to rapid rainfall and extreme cold, the trekking trails might be slick, muddy and leeches can be found during the Monsoon season.
