Do you want to spend less than a week’s holiday in Nepal? If so Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek will be absolutely the best choice. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking, the best short, easy, and family trek occurs in the Annapurna region of the central-western part of Nepal.

This journey is popularly considered an Annapurna Sunrise Trekking or the Annapurna Panorama Trekking that leads us to the beautiful and colorful ethnic settlements of the Annapurna section inside Nepal. This Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is one of the most demanded treks and perhaps is the decisive short trek in the Himalayas.

This trek can be organized for all people regardless of their ages, gender, and residence. This is also popular for the short family trek because you can transverse taking your children and parents easily. Although this trek finishes within 4-5 days, it takes in the heart of the Annapurna ranges.

On the way, you can encounter different people of different ethnic groups including Brahmin, Chhetri, Gurung, Magar, Dalit, and so forth. Along with the people, you will explore their unique cultural activities, traditions, and way of living. In different places, you will get warm greetings and hospitality from the locals.

This trek can be done with people having a moderate level of fitness. As the highest altitude of this journey is Poon Hill, elevating 3,210 meters from the sea level, the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (Altitude Sickness) is rare. As we reach there by acclimatizing in the lower elevation such as Ghorepani, the problem of this sickness reduces again.

The core attraction of this journey is Poon Hill, the vantage point, or the photographer’s heavenly site. It is the best sunrise point as well. This place offers breathtaking panoramic and picturesque views of the mountain ranges.

The mountains such as Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Dhaulagiri I, Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, Manaslu ranges, and many more can be observed/seen vividly from this place

Next, as we walk early from Ghorepani village in the morning, reach Poon Hill to have the breathtaking sunrise views over the Himalayas. The extraordinary first light from Poon Hill is just astonishing. A stimulating sight of elevated peaks neighboring you can captivate everybody who’s the element of this overwhelming trek.

Next, this wonderful trip bids you the views of terraced slopes and fields, astonishing rice and wheat fields, beautiful terrains, picturesque rhododendron woodlands, and many more. The starting and ending point of this journey is Pokhara, the city of lakes. You can customize this trek by visiting and exploring different paradise sites of Pokhara.

Although, this trek is considered a short, easy, and family trek can be problematic in case of the steps on the way. You have to walk several stone steps on the way.

Sunrise

Sunrise from Poon Hill is one of the highlighted parts of Ghorepani Trek. It will happen between 6:15 am to 6:55 am according to the trekking season. During the main season, more than 300 people hike every day for sunrise. When you see the sunrise over the Himalayas the moment will be a breathtaking experience.

5* five day Ghorepani/Poon Hill hike

Rated 5 out of 5

My husband and I are so lucky to have found Jayaram while looking for a guide for our 5 day Ghorepani/Poon Hill hike. Jayaram was super friendly and available from the moment we touched down in Kathmandu to the day we left Nepal. I was 4 months pregnant on this trip and Jayaram made sure that I was ok and comfortable the whole time. During our 5 day hike, everything was organized very well and we had a lot of flexibility to stop in a different village if we were too tired or to keep on hiking (to note though that it wasn’t a busy season). Navaraj, our porter who is training to become a guide, was also very friendly and helpful. It was a pleasure to spend 5 days with both of them.
After the trek, Jayaram also helped to organize our safari package in Chitwan, which was also an excellent experience.
We were sad to leave Nepal and when we come back to do base camp we’ll make sure to contact them again!

My experience with Base camp Hike was excellent. The agency is really helpful not only for the trekking part but literally for any concerns that you may have during your stay in Nepal. I’ve done 4 days trekking to the poon hill, during the trek we stayed in a very nice clean tea house, the food was really good and I really had enjoyed my time.

Went on the Poon Hill trek with guide Jay and porter Nabaraj. Although and easy trek it was very nice to have Nebaraj as a porter with us. He is also a guide and spoke good English which to allow us to split up and walk to two different paces since they were both there. Jay is very attentive and makes sure every detail of the trip is managed. I travelled with a very needy co-traveller who kept getting into messes and Jay patiently managed all of his chaos throughout the trip. If you’re looking for a very attentive guide service then I recommend using Base Camp Hike.

It’s been a delightful experience having Jayaram as our guide during our time in Nepal. He not only showed us the breath-taking sceneries around the country but also took his time to explain the cultural aspects of Nepal which we enjoyed a great deal. He’s a kind and patient person who’s willing to put up with our constant whining throughout the journey. We cherished the experience and, more importantly, appreciated the friendship we’ve built with him.
