  • Dense rhododendron forests and deep valleys below the Annapurna
The Ghorepani Poonhill trek is one of the most famous routes among trekkers who have a short schedule and yet would like to enjoy a trek packed with great mountain scenery. Poonhill is the second most popular trekking route in western Nepal after the Annapurna Base Camp. The Ghorepani Poonhill trek is preferred by tourists who plan a short stay in Nepal and are unable to go for the long trek to the Annapurna Base Camp.

It is possible to complete the trek in 3 days but the normal duration is 5 days. Natural diversity, an unrivaled view of the mountains from the high vantage point of Poonhill, and the picturesque view of sunrise over the Himalayas are the main attractions of this trekking route.

The adventurous journey to Poonhill passing through numerous tourist hotspots of Kaski district is very pleasant. The path winds through verdant valleys, dense rhododendron forests and icy waterfalls, where you can get some rest after some hard trekking. Around each corner is the alluring sight of the high mountains, which you will see clearly as you reach the highest point of this trek.

The trek to Poonhill involves an ascent from 1070 m to 3210 m. Throughout the trek, you can observe the picturesque mountain ranges, the amazing wilderness, the lifestyle of the native communities like Gurungs, dense rhododendron forests and deep valleys below the Annapurna, with the pleasant peak of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Peak) dominating the horizon.

In the end, you will climb Poonhill early in the morning to enjoy the most astonishing scenery of the mountains on earth as the sun rises and touches the Himalayan giants like Dhaulagiri and Annapurna, as the orange hue slowly spills over the snowy white mountains. Mere words are insufficient to describe the sense of serenity and awe one feels when looking at the sunrise from Poonhill.

“Jeg havde 5 dage i poonhill med guide sambhu fra dette Company ...kompagniet gav korrekt information og fandt dem meget professionel, Sambhu var min guide og ogsaa min porter, han talte lidt engelsk, men det var nok til at forstå....han var meget hjælpsom og rar...trekket selv var lidt hård for mig, fordi det var første gang jeg tog sådan en tur. Jeg var glad for min guide fandt gode hoteller og god mad...jeg er meget glad for selskabet og for at de gav mig denne fantastiske oplevelse...jeg kan sige anbefale dette selskab får men alt man kan ønske sig.....de er bedst.”
