Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is one of the short and rewarding Annapurna treks. The trail makes basically a loop around Ghandruk; and Ghorepani will reach in two ways, starting either from Phedi or Nayapul. If you start from Phedi, you will trek to Landruk, cross the Modi River, reach Kyumi, and from there to Ghandruk. If starting from Nayapul, your trail will go through Syauli Bazar and Kilu and then ascend towards Ghandruk. It is worth spending a day in Ghandruk village, which is mainly inhabited by Gurungs. Visit the Gurung cultural museum in the village and enjoy fabulous views of Annapurna South peak. From there you will be following a forested path to Tadapani then head west to Ghorepani.

Your trekking guide will receive you from your hotel in Kathmandu at 6:30 AM and take you to the Tourist Bus Station at Kantipath. At 7:00 AM the bus will leave for Pokhara, exiting the valley of Kathmandu at Thankot and then descending through the winding highway. During the fascinating drive, you will be allowed to make two shortstops for tea and breakfast at some convenient locations. After arriving in Pokhara at around 2:00 PM, you check-in at your hotel, freshen up and have lunch. Walking along the Lakeside would be a good idea for the evening. You are advised to get some good sleep to begin trekking the next day.

A private vehicle, leaving at 8 AM will transfer you to Hile (1430 m), the starting point of this Annapurna trek. After this 3-hours drive.

Day 4: Ulleri – Ghorepani (2875 m)

After breakfast, you begin ascending the terraced path all the way to Banthanti, from where the path routes through a thick forest. After having walked for about 5-6 hours, you will reach Ghorepani (2875 m), known to be a major settlement of Pun ethnic people. If the weather is fine, you will be able to a greater part of the Annapurna Range from your room and the setting sun paints the scenery leaving an artistic effect on the horizon.

Day 5: Ghorepani – Poonhill (3210 m) – Tadapani (2600 m)

Wake up very early in the morning and hike up to Poonhill (3210 m), which takes roughly 1 hour. If the weather is fine, you can enjoy an outstanding view of the sunrise over the Annapurna Himalayan range. Some fifteen different mountain peaks (including Dhaulagiri) are also visible from there – no wonder the place is regarded as one of the best viewpoints. After enjoying the sunrise, you will descend back to Ghorepani (1 hour approx.) and have breakfast. After a short recess, resume trekking for about 5 hours to reach Tadapani (2600 m). You will be spending yet another night in a local teahouse.
