Ghorepani Poonhill Trek

This low-altitude trek enables you to enjoy the breath-taking scenery of some of the highest Himalayan peaks. From the terraced rice-fields above Pokhara, we walk on good trails through picturesque Gurung villages and the world’s biggest rhododendron forest which, in spring, bursts with color. The dawn views of Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchare and Annapurna South, from Poon Hill are the highlight of this trek. Short, and fairly easy, this trek is a perfect starter for those not sure of their walking ability, or those who wish to make the most of only a few days. The trek finishes at the magnificent lake at Pokhara, where you can add one or two days to the program.
