trip introduction

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is one of the most popular and easiest trekking destinations of Nepal. It is situated at an altitude of 3200m in the Annapurna region. Ghorepani Poon Hill is famous for the exotic traditional village, ethnic communities, beautiful crimson red rhododendron forest and magnificent panoramic views of snowcapped mountains. Along with the beautiful nature and massif mountains, Ghorepani Poonhill Trek also offers the best sunrise and sunset views in this region.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is the major attraction of the Annapurna Region. The trail starts from Nayapul at Pokhara. The popular trekking trails offer you a lovely trek course.  Including an all-encompassing perspective on mountains and green slopes. The treks make a remarkable journey. Also, the exceptional Gurung’s and Magar’s town in transit makes a special effect on the trek. You will be amazed knowing how people have primitive ethics that are untouched by the modern era. Additionally, passing through the significant number of alluring woods of blossoming rhododendrons and bamboos gives you a beautiful background to take a snap.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is the first choice for the first time trekkers. This trek is perfect for those who do not have enough time but have a great desire for trekking. Moreover, this trek is suitable for people of any age and fitness level. Although the trek is simple, the trek feels difficult if you don’t have enough determination and motivation.

Plan your trip to  Ghorepani Poonhill with Blue Mountain Tours for the wonderful trekking memories with your family and friends.

Itinerary

We take an early morning flight from Kathmandu’s domestic airport to Pokhara.  After reaching Pokhara, we drive to Nayapul where we commence our trek to Birethanti, a large and prosperous riverside village at the confluence of the Modi and Bhurungdi Kholas (streams). We hike up to Sudame along the off road and then climb gradually up the side of the valley, Tikhedhunga.
Cross suspension metal bridge and steep ascent on stone staircases to the village of Ulleri – and an amazing landscape of valley floor where we came during the day with marvelous views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included. Overnight at Ulleri Lodge.

After having breakfast, our trekking begins through large rhododendron and oak forests.  After a few hours and with several breaks we reach Ghorepani. Upper Ghorepani (Deurali) where we stay in this trip, offers fantastic views of Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna Himalayas.

Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner included. Overnight at Ghorepani Lodge.

Early morning start for the 45 minute walk up to Poon hill (3,210m) through rhododendron forest. From the grassy top of the hill there is an unobstructed panoramic view of the high Himalayas stretching from far western Dolpo, and Dhaulagiri (8,172m), the Annapurna Range in the north, including Fish Tail Mountain (Machhapuchhare)  and on to Manaslu (8,163m) in the northeast. To the south, the mist slowly rises from the flatlands towards India.  Take as many as photographs of your with beautiful panoramic view of Himalayas range and then walk back to Ghorepani for breakfast.
After brekfast we take the eastward trail to Tadapani crosses numerous ridges through thick pine and rhododendron forest with occasional flat sections and wonderful views of the snow peaks to the north from high ground.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included.
Overnight at Tadapani Lodge.

4th day of our trek, our trail is mainly downhill at first destination being the large Gurung village of Ghandruk with Himalayan views on the background. We take a lunch here. After lunch, trek to Ghandruk Phedi (trail head) for an hour to the road to finish the trek, and brings quicker to Lake City Pokhara for shopping and hang around. About two and half hours scenic drive following down stream of ice cold river and overlooking Phewas Lake. Eventually, back to Pokhara and your Hotel to Lakeside. Afternoon free time.

Overnight in Pokhara at 2 star hotel.

After breakfast, we take a Tourist bus station at 7:30 am and drive back to Kathmandu from Pokhara. This scenic drive offers fascinating glimpses of rural Nepal as you pass through Middle Hill scenery along the famous rafting Trishuli River. Arrive Kathmandu around 02:30 to 03:00pm.
Breakfast include.
We will transferred to your booking hotel if you request or you can self arrangement to go to hotel.

Coming up to Ghorepani and not climbing to Poon Hill for sunrise is just unacceptable. Poon Hill offers you the most dramatic view of sunrise over the hills. After showering with such beautiful views we will trek towards the Tadapahani. In total, it would take us nearly 7 hours. That’s really is tiring. Sleep at Tadapani and we have a simpler trek for the next day.

Trekking for 7 hours is quite exhausting, so you don’t have to push yourself daily. We will move towards Chomrong slowly and steadily. Make sure your body can take a rest for a longer period of time.

Again, after staying at Chomrong we will move further towards Himalaya Hotel at an altitude of 2,950 m. We are just a day behind reaching our destination. However, walking in the beautiful trekking trails of the Annapurna Region is never enough to make you bored.

Finally, we are close enough to our destination. Annapurna Base Camp just 7 hours away from you. A final push that you can do it, and you are at the foot of Mt. Annapurna itself. Buckle up all your energy, to find heaven in the Earth.

Under the lightning stars the proud feeling that you reached Annapurna Base Camp literally jolts up the flow of energy in your body. We will descend towards the Bamboo exploring the new life of the people living in the village and know them closely on the way to Bamboo.

After staying at the amazing village Bamboo. We are close to our departure period. While we descend through Bamboo chatting about how beautiful Nepal has been this whole time. We will slowly trek toward Jhinu.

Last day at our trek of Annapurna Base Camp Trekking. We will depart from Jinu to Nayapul, things where we started right? After reaching Nayapul we will drive straight to Pokhara and stay in Hotel. If we have time, we can join the lakeside for time too

After we rest on Pokhara, we will visit some popular spots of Pokhara. And head back to Kathmandu on a luxurious Tourist Coach.

Day 14: Transfer To The International Airport For Final Departure.
We will depart you from Hotel to Airport. We have a token of love for trusting us with your beautiful journey that’s going to last for eternity in your memories.
