Trip Overview

The Ghorepani Poon-Hill Trek takes us to the northern-central part of Nepal i.e. the Myagdi district. Ghorepani village is a part of the Annapurna Conservation Area.

Generally, Ghorepani is a part of any trail that leads to the Annapurna Base Camp. Ghorepani is a link to many ethnic villages. Ghorepani and Poon-Hill trek are the major attractions of Myagdi district. The Ghorepani Poon-Hill trek is graded as an easy one.

Ghorepani is a beautiful village with majority of Gurung inhabitants and secondarily Magar ethnic people. The sight of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu peaks seen from Ghorepani is peerless.

In Ghorepani, hike to Poon-Hill is a major activity. Poonhill is one of many popular trek-stops. The popularity of this place makes it a little crowded during tourism seasons. The most suitable time to hike to Poon-Hill is during sunrise. A top-tier snowscape can be seen during sunrise. The view of Annapurna (8,091m.), Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Manaslu (8,163m.) as they touch the morning sky is astonishing.

Next in route, is another Gurung village, Ghandruk. Ghandruk is popular for its splendid Annapurna and Machhapuchhre view. In addition to the natural beauty, warm nature of the locals, their culture, traditional houses and environment make visiting Ghandruk worthy. Ghandruk offers various accommodation options to the visitors.

Some of the trekking routes were damaged but most of them were not. Among them, Langtang valley was badly damaged, but now it is reconstructing and safe now.

It is not mandatory tipping to guide and porter. But they appreciate your small gratuity after your trek ends.
