What to Expect
The Ghorepani Poonhill trek sets you in one of the most awe-inspiring panoramas in the Himalayas. Walking through impressive forested areas, you reach a maximum altitude of 3210 m. Anyone of reasonable physical fitness should be able to comfortably complete this trek.
The Ghorepani Poonhill trek begins in the beautiful lakeside city of Pokhara, from where you take a short car ride to Nayapul (1100 m) village. Climbing along the trail through a number of beautiful villages and forest areas you follow the river bank to Tirkhadunga (1557 m) where you will spend the first night. Next day, further ascending along the trail to Ghorepani-2850 m (all the way up the hill, crossing 3000 steps), you will be left in sheer awe at the clear views of the towering expanse of Mt. Dhaulagiri I (8167 m) and Annapurna I (8091 m). The highlight of the Ghorepani trek is a visit to Poonhill (3210 m) early next day, from where we will be able to see a spectacular sunrise over the whole Himalayan range and surrounding rice terraces (a photographer’s paradise!).
After breakfast, you trek east to Tadapani (2590 m), crossing some of the most spectacular rhododendron forests. This is where you’ll be left open-mouthed at the breathtaking views of the fishtail-shaped Mt. Macchapucchre (6900 m), Annapurna south (7219 m) and Gangapurna (7454 m). Our trek continues to Chomrong (2050 m), and after a short hike you descend to some nice hot springs. Having explored the area a bit more, you will fly to Pokhara from Nayapul the next day.

Short trek at Annapurna circuit
