Our 10 days Poon Hill Ghorepani Trek is short and easy, and it offers a spectacular view of waterfalls, mountains and takes you to the world’s largest rhododendron forest. It also takes you to Poonhill viewpoint which offers spectacular views of the Annapurna Range including mountains such as Annapurna I, ( 8091 m), Annapurna II (7,937 m), Annapurna III (7,555 m), Annapurna IV (7,525 m), Gangapurna (7455 m), Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Nilgiri, and Hiunchuli (6441 m). Standing atop Poonhill during sunrise is truly a cherished moment and one you are not likely to ever forget.

Other mountains you will get to see on this trek is the beautiful Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Peak) (6,993 m), Mt. Manaslu (8,156 m) and Lamjung Himal from Pokhara.

“I absolutely loved this entire trip. Every turn was a picture post card view, the people, food and surroundings were phenomenal, met all my expectations. The climb was demanding, but worth every step. Ace the Himalaya anticipated and met every need and expectation and their support lead to an awesome trip.”
A great experience

“Loved the whole trip in spite of my hiking buddy becoming quite ill, meaning a rather slow trek. The organisation was superb, our guide, Bhim, friendly and accommodating, the scenery spectacular and the trek exciting at times as we crossed recent avalanches and shared the swaying bridges with frisky, stubborn goats. An amazing experience of a lifetime.”
Cancellation Free cancellation up to 60 days prior departure, after which the deposit becomes non-refundable.
