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.
