Short Trekking in Nepal (Ghorepani Poon Hill)
Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is the most popular short trekking in the lower Annapurna region of western Nepal. It is a trek highly suitable for the family trips who seek amazing views from the lower altitude range. Poon Hill (3210 meters) is an outstanding viewpoint of the enticing Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks along with the magnificent sunrise view over them.
Trek to Poon Hill begins from Nayapul, which is a gateway for several treks in Annapurna. The route lies above the stream in the beginning and crossing the stream, it goes through the steep uphill trail, which is eventually dotted by the rhododendron forest. The shadow trail continues to Ghorepani, which is a Magar ethnic community populated town, just below of the Poon Hill. About 40 minutes walk to Poon Hill is a straightforward uphill journey, but the scenery once reaching there is incredible. The Himalayan views, sunrise and the surrounding look dramatic. Furthermore, the trail is a continual up and down, along the stream and through the forest. Walking to Ghandruk, which is one of the most amazing villages on this route through the steep downhill route, you have plenty of time to enjoy exploring the Gurung culture and hospitality. Their culture and civilizations are based on traditional values and beliefs.
