This is a short and easy trek in the Annapurna Region that offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains. You won't climb higher than 3,210 meters, so it's a great option for people of all ages and abilities who enjoy trekking. Poon hill sunrise trek begins with a scenic drive from Pokhara to Nayapul, after which we follow the Modi River to the village of Tikhedhunga and Ulleri before arriving at Ghorepani. Along the way, you'll see a variety of birds, playful langurs (black-faced monkeys), and beautiful forests of rhododendron, oak, maple, and pine.
The highlight of the trek is an early morning climb to the summit of Poon Hill, where you'll witness breathtaking views of some of Nepal's highest and most dramatic peaks, including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1, and Manaslu. The ridges between Ghorepani and Ghandruk also offer stunning views of the high peaks, as well as the green middle hills and terraced farmlands.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is perfect for those with limited time or physical limitations, but who still want to experience the beauty of the Himalayas and local culture. The best time to go is during autumn or spring when the weather is clear, and you can enjoy unobstructed views of the mountains and natural scenery.
