Overview

Poon hill trek in Nepal : Walking holidays in the Nepal Himalaya….
Want to do safe trekking in Nepal? Yes, but don’t want to do a long one? Okay, here is the most suitable trekking in Nepal for you – Ghorepani Poon hill trek in the famous Annapurna region. The most picturesque short trek in Nepal, this trek offers you unreal mountain scenery that will leave you breathless.

Here is how Nikki explains her enjoyment of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with Yoga at her article “Inspired to take a peak” in the Stuff newspaper

…the trek is oddly comfortable. There are rest stops all along the path and water taps are everywhere. The scenery is growing evermore gob-smacking, but I’m falling in love with the Nepali people. Almost everyone we see greets us with a smile and “namaste”. At the top of the steps we stop for lunch: platters of fried rice, dumplings and noodles. Three sorts of fried carbs! Delicious. Next we enter a cloud forest, a magical place of mossy trees and running brooks. It’s a relief to be out of the sun, but …

You will hike 2 days to Ghorepani (which used to be a rest stop where ancient traders found water (pani in Nepali) for their horses (ghoda in Nepali).  You will experience sunrise at Poon Hill, with breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna Sanctuary, including Gangapurna, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri and Hiunchuli.  Along the trail you will hike through bamboo and rhododendron forest  – it will be in full bloom in the spring – if you trek the Himalaya in March-April.

Enjoy the energizing fresh mountain air while you are totally enthralled with the breathtaking view of the dramatic Annapurna and Fishtail range. Hiking in the serene mountains is truly a blessing and it is made even better with the presence of the Himalaya. The sense of joy that comes to you while you see the snow capped mountains is indescribable; you just feel it and enjoy it.

 200 km west of Kathmandu is the unbelievably beautiful city of Pokhara, a six hours bus ride or twenty five minutes flight from Kathmandu, it is the main-gate way to the Ghorepani Poon hill trek. From Pokhara there is another one and half hour drive to Nayapul where your trek of the life time starts. As you walk the rugged trails, you will enjoy the beauty of nature as you cross small beautiful mountain streams, green hills that overlook the white Himalayan peaks and eventually watch the sunrise over the Annapurna mountain range.

This trek goes from Nayapul to Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani, Poon hill, then to Tadapani and Ghandruk or Jhinu then back to Nayapul where we drive back to Pokhara.  This short but spectacular trek will make you fall in love with the Nepal Himalayan Mountains, and make you want to see more.

Tikhedhunga - trek to Ghorepani

After a mouth watering mountain breakfast at the tea house we start the trek of the day. Probably the most difficult day of the trek given that the trail goes only higher in elevation. The first part of the trek is a steep upward walk for about 2 Hrs and then a gradual upward walk. The walk on the stone paved steps is a daring adventure early in the morning. The whole trail leads you through villages and forest to Ghorepani where your efforts will be rewarded with magnificent close up views of the Himalaya (given the weather is clear).
