The Ghorepanni Poon Hill trek is one of the most popular trekking routes in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It’s a relatively easy trek, suitable for beginners and those who want to experience trekking in the Himalayas without having to endure strenuous hikes. The trek offers stunning views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges, and allows you to witness the local culture and hospitality of the Nepalese people.
The trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, which is a beautiful city located by the side of Phewa Lake. Pokhara is the second-largest city in Nepal and is known for its serene surroundings, beautiful mountains, and adventurous activities. The drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara takes around 6-7 hours and passes through small villages, green hills, and alongside rivers.
From Pokhara, the trek starts with a drive to Nayapul, which is the starting point of the trek. The trail passes through small villages, lush forests, and offers spectacular views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. On the first day of the trek, you will reach Tikhedhunga, which is a small village located at an altitude of 1,570m/5,150ft. You will stay at a teahouse in Tikhedhunga, which is a basic but comfortable accommodation option available on the trekking route.
The second day of the trek is relatively challenging, with a steep uphill climb to Ghorepani. Ghorepani is a small village located at an altitude of 2,750m/9,020ft, and is the highest point on the trek. The trail passes through dense forests of rhododendron and oak, which are in full bloom during the spring season. The views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges from Ghorepani are breathtaking, especially during the sunrise and sunset.
On the third day of the trek, you will wake up early and hike to Poon Hill, which is the highlight of the trek. Poon Hill is a viewpoint located at an altitude of 3,210m/10,530ft, and offers panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. The sunrise view from Poon Hill is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, with the mountains changing colors as the sun rises. After spending some time at Poon Hill, you will trek to Tadapani, which is another small village located at an altitude of 2,610m/8,560ft.
On the fourth day of the trek, you will trek downhill to Ghandruk, which is a beautiful village located at an altitude of 1,940m/6,360ft.

You will stay at a teahouse in Ghandruk, and have the opportunity to explore the village and interact with the locals.
On the last day of the trek, you will trek back to Nayapul and then drive back to Pokhara. In the evening, you can explore the Lakeside area of Pokhara and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. On the eighth day of the trek, you will drive back to Kathmandu and end your journey.
The Ghorepanni Poon Hill trek is a perfect blend of natural beauty, cultural experience, and adventure. The trek can be done throughout the year, but the best time to do it is during the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) seasons when the weather is clear and the views are stunning.
