About Ghorepani Poonhill Short Trekking
The classic trek to Poon Hill 3210m is a short and comparatively one of the easiest treks into the Annapurna region. But be prepared to hike up some stone steps along the trail. The popular one is just before we reach Ulleri village. This trek is appropriate for those who have limited time to spend in Nepal with an eagerness to witness the beauty of mighty Mount Annapurna and other snow-capped mountains. Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a blend of natural trials fluctuating between skyward and downstairs with a good deal of Tea Houses/Lodges, rhododendron forests, beautiful Gurung and Magar (ethnic groups of Nepal) settlements and most amazing Annapurna Himalaya scenery.
Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking starts from Nayapul which is approx. One and half hour drive from Pokhara. The trek up to Tikhedhunga is a gentle walk and climb, generally hot. Next day trek is a real delight. Dense rhododendron forests, dramatic valleys will make your trip more remarkable as this trek passes through alluring villages of Ulleri, Banthati, Ghorepani, Tadhapani, Ghandruk and few other dazzling villages. Ghorepani is a peaceful and beautiful village in Annapurna region joining major pathways onwards with the generous number of Tea Houses/ Lodges which makes it a portal to Poon Hill, one of the finest view points in the area. History revels that traders once used this place as a rest stop for water (Pani in Nepali) for their horses thus leading to the terminology Ghodepani, later transformed into Ghorepani.
The Poon Hill viewpoint offers a scenic view of mountains and sunrise which will make you feel like every edge is a lively glimpse of the overwhelming mountains. Mount Fishtail the holy mountain, Annapurna South, Barasikhar, Nilgiri, Tukche, Hiunchuli, and the Dhaulagiri mountain range are all on show on this short trek to Poon Hill. Anyone who appreciates nature and fascinating landscapes will experience happy memories and stories to tell for years to come, an enduring trip into the heart of the Annapurna’s. The trail to Tadapani village followed by Ghandruk village maintains the Annapurna panorama making the hike even more exciting.
