Poonhill Trek – 11 days

General Overview

poon-hill-trekThis is one of the popular and bestseller trekking among the trekking route of Nepal. It is only six days of walking tour but you can enjoy magnificent views of stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys. The highlight of this trek is Poonhill at the elevation of 3210 m from sea level, from this point all major peaks are visible including Mt. Dhaulagiri at far left and Annapurna I and it's ranges,  Manaslu and many more on the right. The trek is easy, it has enough walking along streams and forests for those who are looking for a few days close to nature, yet it is not far away and involves no high climbing. You absolutely have no risk of altitude sickness on this trek.
The Ghorepani Poonhill trek is an immensely popular short trek to the Annapurna. The trek starts from the beautiful Modi Khola river, after an hour of drive from Pokhara. Crossing the suspension bridge over Modhi Khola river, we ascend through ethnic villages and farm terraces enjoying the views of Machhapuchare peeking between the hills . On the second day we walk mostly through woods before we reach Ghorepani hill. Next morning we make an early climb of one hour to the nearby Poonhill for the spectacular view of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna , Nilgiri and other famous mountains of the region.
Ghorepani is standing over hillock densely forested with rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal. Every spring it is tremendous scenery to watch these forests in bloom with the panorama of the high mountains on the skyline.
These three mountains (Dahulagiri, Manaslu and Annapurna I) are scaled more than 8000 m and they are respectively seventh, eighth and ninth highest mountains in the world. Moreover the tourist can enjoy lush green Rhododendron and other forest, people working at their farm, seeing different faces, some wild animal, birds and many more.
