Annapurna Poon Hill Trekking is the best option for those who have a limited span of the holiday. It suits also trekkers who have altitude sickness and want to walk not very long. However, the Poon Hill Trekking 4 days can be the best trekking experience ever.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking begins from Nayapul after having a short drive from Pokhara. Pokhara is a beautiful city surrounded by the Himalayas and sets on the bank of Fewa Lake where your trek ends too. So, having a cup of tea with enjoying the beauty of Pokhara is indescribable.

However, the Poon Hill Tea House Trekking ascends along the terraced farmlands and the rhododendron forest in the initial time and reaches Ghorepani. It is a wonderful place and mainly populated by the Gurung tribes. The lodges are very best at this place.

Apart from it, the Ghandruck is the most enchanting Gurung Village that lies in the Annapurna Poon Hill Trekking trail. It is the center of ethnic-cultural prosperity. So, the Poon Hill trekkers can get an opportunity to know and experience very closely about such ethnic groups, their culture as well as feels their warm welcome. The Old Gurung Museum is also located there.

Poon Hill is one of the perfect viewpoints of the Annapurna regions and the final destination of this trekking. It is much incredible that it shows the very fine views of the sunrise over the marvelous mountains. Poon Hill elevation is 3210m.

Furthermore, walking on the up and down hills is tiring work. The dense forests of oak and rhododendron, the eye-catching birds flying, green hills, etc are the further attractions of the Poon Hill Trekking Nepal.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek in spring and autumn is most desirable, though, it is possible in all the seasons. Poon Hill Trekking accommodation and food can be considered as the cheap ones.

Poon Hill Trekking without a guide is not a very hard job. The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking map shows the route in a very clear way. So, any trekker can join this by making their own Poon Hill Trekking Itinerary. To join this trekking, the tourist needs to have the Poon Hill Trek Permit first.
