Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek Overview

Lush green hiking in some of the most scenic & gorgeous environments you will ever walk for some time…

This trek takes place in the base of the Annapurna foothills with box office vantage points on Poonhill where we get to behold some of the most well known peaks in the world…this trip provides all the best of trekking in Nepal. Relish trekking in the midst of impressive mountain scenery through alluring villages inhabited by the Gurungs and Magars who inhabit this region the most. We hike through dense rhododendron forests full of different bird species and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the gobsmacking peaks of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) rule the skyline hereabouts in a myriad of unique beauty…

This superb trek peaks & freaks out as you climb Poonhill at the break of dawn to enjoy one of the most extravagant mountain sceneries on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m.) and Annapurna at (8,091m.) along with an unbelievable show of other peaks, slowly begin to appear like the supernatural before your eyes, leaving you gasping for breath in some of these spectacular moments. This is a highly rewarding trek that can be adored by those who are truly in love with Mother Nature and her Godly beauty…
