Commonly known as the short Annapurna Circuit trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is an ideal trek for those who prefer a short trek but aim to embrace the natural beauty and the magnificent views of the Himalayas. Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is also friendly towards families and suitable for all ages. The towering mountains, the high slopes and the colossal scenes bring numerous trekkers to this impeccable trekking region.

Other than the amazing display of the Himalayan mountains like Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Mount Machhepuchhre (6998m), Nilgiri (7041m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna II (7939m) and Annapurna III (7555m), Poon Hill Trek gives trekkers insight into the nearby villages and cultures in this region.

The trek commences after a short drive from Pokhara, at Nayapul, where you come across a suspension bridge over the Modi Khola River. A short hike along the bank of Modi Khola leads to a small village called Birethanti and as you climb the winding stone-paved trail through villages and adjoining farmland, you get remarkable glimpses of the gigantic Machhapuchhre Mountain. The trek then goes to Ghorepani and ultimately to Poon hill.

The major highlight of this trek is to see the sunrise from Poon Hill at an altitude of 3210 m, an hour's climb from Ghorepani. On this short expedition to Poon Hill, you can observe the entire Annapurna mountain range, covered in red, orange and pink shades of the sun at the sunset and sunrise, giving truly magnificent views.

After an awe-inspiring sunset and sunrise view from Poon Hill, you descend through forests and the trail eases as you reach to Ghandruk, a favorite tourist destination and distinct Gurung village known for its traditional houses, great landscape, and rich culture. This village also offers excellent close-up views of Annapurna South, Machhapuchre and Himachuli.

The final day will be spent in the delightful and lovely villages like Tikhedhunga, Birethane and Nayapul where you get a chance to further interact with the people of this region. Then, return to Pokhara, appreciating the last views of the mountains.

This short yet spectacular trek is sure to make you fall in love with the Nepalese Himalayan Mountains!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
