Trip Overview

The Gorepani Poon Hill Trek is one of most popular short treks in the Annapurna Region.

While this trek doesn’t take you in amongst the mountains, the views of the summits from Ghorepani and Poon Hill are outstanding: Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South and Annapurna I to name a few. You will also walk through some dense rhododendron forest and several charming Gurung and Magar villages.

The advantage of this trek is that you will be able to enjoy incredible views from a relatively modest altitude (3210m/10530ft); it is well facilitated with teahouses and the trails are relatively easy, making it perfect for the novice or less adventurous trekker.

If you want to extend this trek you can connect it to the more adventurous Khopra Ridge Trek.

Time spent exploring timeless Kathmandu and relaxing in the lakeside town of Pokhara before and after the trek completes your adventure with insights into Nepali culture and tradition.
