Annapurna Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 09 Nights/10 Days Days

About Trip Overview

Ghorepani is just below the famed vantage point of Poonhill, one of the best spots to see the views of central Nepal Himalayan panorama. There are numbers of choice of short treks in the foothills to the north of Pokhara. It is known as short and sweet trek. Most of these deviations will visit Ghorepani and Ghandruk.

This is one of the most famous trekking areas in Nepal. Pokhara is the gateway to the Ghorepani Poonhill trekking area in Annapurna region and this 7 day trek is an experience that will not be soon forgotten!

Early in the morning we trek to Poonhill, to catch the early morning sunlight on the panorama of peaks: Dhaulaghiri, Annapurna, Machhapuchare, Tukuche and Lamjung Himal.

From here, we catch amazing views of the sun as it rises in the mighty Himalayas. We then head back to Pokhara and continue touring the city’s landmarks. Davis Falls is a unique waterfall that flows directly into a narrow and deep canal which has no end. The Shiva Cave is located near Davis Fall and houses a shrine dedicated to Lord Shiva, a primary Hindu God.
