Ghrepani Poon Hill TrekkingThe Ghorepani Poon Hill trek has over the years been the bestseller among all our trekking tours.The breathtaking mountain scenery and the beautiful ethnic villages justify the popularity of Ghorepani trekking. The trek is easy, it has enough walking along streams and forests for those who are looking for a few days close to nature, yet it is not far away and involves no high climbing .You absolutely have no risk of altitude sickness on this trek. Ghorepani trekking can be done all through the year except during the monsoon.

The Ghorepani Poon hill trek is an immensely popular short trek to the Annapurnas. The trek starts from the beautiful Modi Khola river, after an hour of drive from Pokhara.Crossing the suspension bridge over Modhi Khola river, we ascend through ethnic villages and farm terraces enjoying the views of Machhapuchare peeking between the hills . On the second day we walk mostly through woods before we reach Ghorepani hill .Next morning we make an early climb of one hour to the nearby Poon hill for the spectacular view of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna , Nilgiri and other famous mountains of the region.
The whole of Ghorepani is densely forested with rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal. Every spring it is tremendous scenery to watch these forests in bloom with the panorama of the high mountains on the skyline.

Ghrepani Poon Hill Trekking

From Ghorepani we descend for the beautiful Gurung (name of a community) village of Ghandruk on the lap of the Annapurnas. The village is known for its traditional houses, rich culture and the great landscape. Walking down through the innumerable steps we make a loop at Birethanti and catch our vehicle for Pokhara at Nayapul .We trace back no part of the trail on this itinerary. On our whole trek, we use the mountain lodges called the tea houses for our food and accommodation.

The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek combined with a two days of elephant back safari in the tropical Chitwan national park (5 hr of drive from Pokhara) makes an ideal Nepal holiday. You see a great number of wild animals and birds including rhinos, crocodiles, deers, peacocks, leopards and if lucky even a tiger. You will enjoy a canoe ride in Rapti river, visit baby elephants in elephant breeding centre and the safari trip will conclude with a bird watching tour – Chitwan national park alone has 450 species of birds! Back at Kathamndu we celebrate our Ghorepani hiking with a traditional Nepali dinner followed by ethnic cultural show.
