Ghorepani Poon Hill Ghandruk Trek
345

Ghorepani Poonhill trek is a beautiful short introduction to both Annapurna and Dhaulagiri trekking regions. The trails in the Ghorepani-Poonhill trek go through icy waterfalls and historical old patchwork valleys full of dense mossy forests. Around every bend, you will be teased by glimpses of different high snow-covered mountains, but the whole beauty of them will be revealed as you reach the highest point of the trek at Poonhill viewpoint.

This the short trek through the foothills of Annapurna mountain range to the viewpoint of Poonhill offers the best trek in Nepal. You will get to behold glimpses of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Mountain), Annapurna Mountain Range, the great Dhaulagiri, and the spectacular villages inhabited by the Gurkha tribes of Gurungs and Magars. You will also get to enjoy ancient dense rhododendron forests full of flora and fauna in the deep sub-tropical valleys of this region. Ghorepani (2874 meter/9429 Feet) is a village in Annapurna region famous for its athe viewpoint: the Poonhill (3210 meters/10531 Feet), and for its very famous culture and heritage. The village is within the boundary of Annapurna Conservation Area and Myagdi District of Dhaulagiri zone of central Nepal. This place was named Ghorepani as in ancient time it was the place where the traders in this zone found water for their horse (“Ghore” meaning horse and “Pani” meaning, water in Nepalese language.) It’s also a major midpoint linking major trekking and travel routes of both Annapurna and Dhaulagiri region treks.
