Trip Introduction

Ghorepani-Poonhill Trekking, otherwise called Annapurna Poonhill Trek is one of the finest short teahouse-treks in the Annapurna area.

We take one of the well-trodden courses through woodland and delightful Himalayan settlements of Ghandruk and Ghorepani. We trek further enjoying different ethnic cultures that inhabit the area. Because of the unbelievable altitudinal reach and the wonderful views of the Himalayas, Annapurna Poon Hill climbing is a naturalist’s heaven.

The surrounding views of Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Manaslu (8157m) and other mountains will stun you with their majestic presence.

As the sun touches the snow-topped summits of the Himalayan goliaths Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m), the mountains gradually start to show up right before our eyes. A spectacular tour that can delight everyone, this short and introductory trek is suitable for family with youngsters as well.

    Nepal Lion Tours are great! I hired a guide through Nepal Lion in order to do the Poon Hill Trek over 4 days and 3 nights. This was my first time trekking in Nepal so i wasn't sure what to expect but saw the great reviews the company had got and decided to go with them. Our guide Bishnu was great, making all our arrangements covering accommodation, food etc. He told us each night what the plan for the next day was and the whole thing ran really smoothly. At the end you get a really cool certificate saying you've completed the trek which is a nice bonus. I would definitely use Nepal Lion Tours if I come to Nepal again, they were really professional and made the trek a fantastic experience!
