Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara and start your trek from Nayapul. Reach Ghorepani, one of the biggest villages in the Annapurna region and a famous tourist destination on its own, on the third day of the trip. Hike up to the top of Poon Hill (3210m) on the fourth day of the trip and enjoy beautiful sunrise and mountain views. See the entire Annapurna range and take as many pictures as you want to.

Time to head back to Pokhara. Stop by at Jhinu along the way and take a dip in one of its hot water springs. Hike all the way to Siwai and take a jeep/bus to Pokhara, from where you will drive back to Kathmandu.

“I am a father of 3 sons and the four of us joined the trek on the 23rd of Dec. 2018. After a long 7 hour bus trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara (not very interesting), we met with our guide Raju. The following day he took us from the hotel in Pokhara to the starting point in Nayapool. The first and second day were relatively easy and we enjoyed the scenery. The 3rd day (sunrise at Poonhill) was fantastic, but challenging. Basically we walked (with a few breaks) from 5.30 AM to 5 PM. The views from Poonhill and from other high locations were wonderful. Our guide Raju is a super friendly and caring guide. He motivated my boys (16,15,13 years) and took good care of us. The 4th and 5th day were great as well. The Guest House in Ghandruk (Simon GH) was the only good one during the trek. The other hostels are very very basic, but we understand that we cannot expect much in the mountains of this undeveloped country. After 5 days we said goodbye to Raju and we hope to see him again some day, somewhere.”
