Swing your backpack on and step into an amazing adventure. Nepal is filled with every trekking opportunity from long rambles staying in delightful teahouses, to multi-day high elevation, hard-core alpine experiences. If you long for big adventure in an exotic location far from the every day – this is your destination.

Most recently Nepal was named as one of the world’s best places to visit in 2017. With so many options for trekking, there is the breathtaking Annapurna region in north-central Nepal. Many use the lakeside city of Pokhara as their planning and jumping off point for treks in this area.

Not only will your views be dominated by the Annapurna Massif, but there are in total 14 peaks in this region. So needless to say these treks are nothing but views, views, views! It cannot be stated enough that this region will leave you spellbound with every step.

One such trek that will offer incredible views, mild hiking, and fantastic opportunities to explore traditional rural life is the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek (3,210m).

It has become famous for its tame elevation gain, cultural riches, and most notably, the incredible sunrises. This trek welcomes thousands of tourists each year who are adventure lovers but are limited on time. This is a great hike for families or, anyone that who requires a less strenuous and shorter hike but doesn’t want to sacrifice the incredible scenery found in the Himalayan Mountains.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek showcases majestic mountains such as Dhaulagiri (8167m,) Manaslu (8163 m,) Annapurna I (8091m), Gangapurna (7454 m), Lamjung Himal (6983m), Nilgiri (7061m), Tukuche Peak (6920m), Hiunchuli (6441 m).

The main draw, and the highest point on the trek, Pooh Hill, is known for incredible sunrises on the mountains in the Annapurna Range and therefore the trek is sometimes referred to as the Annapurna Sunrise Trek.

Pokhara: Gateway to the Himalayas

The adventure begins in Kathmandu, followed by a scenic flight to Pokhara, which is considered a gateway to the central mountains. Its cultural wonders begin shortly along with the trek as the trail winds through villages and settlements of the Gurung, and Magar ethnic groups.

Ghorepani Poon Hill trek provides you with the true meaning of adventure with a great variety of experiences and surprises.
