Overview

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is also known as Annapurna Sunrise Trekking or Annapurna Panorama Trekking. It is a popular and relatively simple trek in the Annapurna region ideal for those who are in a short time.  In fact, we can also say for those who are seeking a more accessible trekking trip in comparison to Annapurna Circuit or Everest Base Camp Trek. The area is known for its beautiful traditional villages and ethnic group. In addition rhododendron forest and a breathtaking 360-degree view of snowcapped mountains. It is located at an elevation of 3200m from sea level. It is right under the most outstanding Himalayan Range such as Dhaulagiri and Annapurna. The Poon Hill trek begins from Nayapul which is  3 hours drive from Pokhara. The trek will finish in 3 to 5 days if you walk at a moderate pace.

Additionally, poon Hill provides a breathtaking view of the Himalayan peaks which include Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, III, Dhaulagiri and many more. The trekking up to Poon Hill to see the sunrise over these beautiful snow-capped mountains is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The Himalayan giants Dhaulagiri and Annapurna stand together with other peaks.
