About Trip

The Ghorepani Poonhill-short trek is an astounding journey and a pleasant trekking expedition for those who love comparatively short and plain sailing with plenty of sightseeing alongside. The trek is a mix of nature trials alternating between uphill and downstairs built into the mountainside with a good deal of teahouses en route. Ghorepani is a serene village that lies within the Annapurna Conservation Area and houses major linking trials along with the abundant number of lodges which makes it a gateway to nearby Poonhill, the finest viewpoint of Annapurna trekking area.

Poonhill is the most remarkable location of Nepal which offers an overwhelmingly striking vignette of the greatest Himalayas distinctly the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges and Mt. Fishtail, Mt. Manaslu, Lamjung, etc. that too from a relatively modest altitude of nothing more than 3210 meters (10,532ft). Ghorepani Poonhill-short trek passes through extensive green hills with gorges in between, stone-paved steps, Asia’s biggest rhododendron forests, dense and vivid magnolias, and rainforest-like foliage everywhere. A night in the comfy guest house of Ghorepani stimulates us to wake up before daybreak and climb to the Poonhill summit. Our entire trek of chasing the Himalayas finally come to victory as we devour the spectacle of the sun rising over the silhouette of Himalayas making the whole endeavor worthwhile.

Index Adventure has a lasting experience in the trekking trials which grants the team a fabulous combo of professionalism, organization and the grasp of the cultural and natural setting of the area so that our travelers can explore every element of the trek with no stone unturned. We explore every wonderful bit and open doors for interaction with the ethnic residents and their traditions as well. All in all, we live up to your expectations.
