Annapurna Poonhill Trek, otherwise called Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is one of the finest short teahouse-treks in the Annapurna area.

We take one of the well-trodden courses through woodland and delightful Himalayan settlements of Ghandruk and Ghorepani. We trek further enjoying different ethnic cultures that inhabit the area. Because of the unbelievable altitudinal reach and the wonderful views of the Himalayas, Annapurna Poon Hill climbing is a naturalist's heaven.

The surrounding views of Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Manaslu (8157m) and other mountains will stun you with their majestic presence.

As the sun touches the snow-topped summits of the Himalayan goliaths Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m), the mountains gradually start to show up right before our eyes. A spectacular tour that can delight everyone, this short and introductory trek is suitable for family with youngsters as well.

Wonderful experience!

“It's our first time experience trekking in Nepal and it was an amazing experience as we see different people from many countries and experience the Nepalis hospitality at its best. We can honestly say that Prakash, our guide, did not disappoint and always very kind and helpful. Overall, we recommend people to join this trek.”
Beautiful trek with very friendly guide
Anonymous From Australia At
4 - Very Good
“Great trek and experience for my wife and I. The guide (Vinod) was very friendly and patience with us as we trekked slowly over the 6 days. For the budget the accommodation wasn't flash but acceptable. You should note that mineral water, hot showers and wifi are usually extra on top of the package (we found out afterwards). Also, it was quite a busy time for the company so some details went missing in communication between the manager back at the office and the guide. For example, we had a porter included but we had to remind the guide that it was included multiple times before he realised. Also, they provided a nice certificate at the end to celebrate our achievement but then mistakenly put the wrong altitude reached (i.e. Poon Hill was about 3200 metres and then put 4100 metres). A little more attention to detail would have been nice but overall a great experience.”
Annapurna Trekking
Steven Daly From Britain At
5 - Excellent
“Annapurna Trekking is certainly one of the most rewarding treks in Nepal. The views are simply stunning and as this was our first time on a long overseas trek, we were very inexperienced and hopeful that our guide would be patient, supportive and have everything in order. We chose Nepal Lion Tours due to its cost and excellent reviews and we're were not dissapointed. We had an excellent guide, who should all the traits we were hopeful of and even had a lovely meal with the MD of the company on our last day. I would certainly recommend Nepal Lions Tour Company to anyone who wants a low cost high value experience.”
