Ghorepani Trek Review

“Had an incredible experience completing the Ghorepani Trek with this local travel specialist. They are a reliable and flexible company that is able to work around your schedule to accommodate the best possible trekking experience tailored to you. My guide was friendly and supportive and was at my beck and call the entire way through. Would strongly recommend choosing this agency for your next trek in Nepal!”
Fantastic Poon Hill 6 day trek
5 - Excellent
  • Anonymous
“I completed the 6 day Poonhill trek with Dev as my guide and Amir as my porter. As I booked this trek alone, I wasn't sure whether others would join (they didn't, but it would have been better to know this when I asked Khum upon arriving in Kathmandu.) Travelling solo was fantastic: the organisation and itinerary worked brilliantly. Dev did a fantastic job at altering the itinerary based on what I wanted to see and he planned a fantastic route from Poonhill crossing glacier rivers, via hot springs and through beautiful villages. He was knowledgeable, friendly, chatty (but not too much!) and matched my walking pace well. Dev and Amir kept me company in the afternoon after finishing trekking for the day. We played cards, teaching each other different games. Dev came well prepared for the trek, providing me with snacks, fruit and a poncho that also went over my bag when it tipped it down. He had a superb knowledge of the route, warning me when up/down or "Nepali flat" was coming up. I would highly recommend Dev if you choose to trek with this company.”

Poonhill Trek - Overview

Machapuchare mountain view from atop Poonhill

View of the Annapurna range from Ghandruk village
Beautiful view of Annapurna South from Poon hill at 3210 m.

Poonhill lies at an altitude of 3,210 m and promises spectacular panoramic views of Dhaulagiri, the world’s 7th highest mountain at 8,167 m and Annapurna I the world’s 10th highest mountain at 8,091m, together with many other sky-reaching peaks. This relatively small hill in Himalayan terms provides awe-inspiring mountain views, making all the physical efforts worthwhile. The panoramic view of the Annapurna range from atop Poonhill is unmatched.

Enroute to the Poonhill trail you’ll be presented with sparkling streams, oak and rhododendron forests, traditional Nepalese villages, and many local teashops. Ghandruk, an antique and cultural village, is another point of interest where the culture and tradition of the Gurung ethnic group can be explored. You can see the beautiful Mount Machhapuchhre (meaning fishtail) really close from here. This mountain in the Annapurna range looks particularly striking because of its pointed profile that looks like a fish tail, despite only having an altitude of 6,903m.
