Ghorepani, a paradise on Earth

Ghorepani is the ultimate answer to those whose quest is to dwell on paradise; like the landscapes we see in movies, but rarely come across in real life. A mixed delight of trekking and sightseeing at high altitude, Ghorepani trekking is otherwise known as Annapurna Sunrise Trek or Poon Hill Trek.

Located in the north-central region of Nepal, Ghorepani is easily accessible from Pokhara, which demands a 4-5 hours of uphill trek through Ulleri. Based on comfort, it is listed as one of the easiest trekking routes. An early morning climb next day ends up in one standing at the elevation of 10,000 feet on top of Poon Hill.

Poon Hill Trek for the ultimate panoramic stretch of the Himalayas

Nature’s beauty lay in my heart as I packed my bags to set out on a journey to Poon Hill, trekking all the way from Ghandruk to Ghorepani and assisting an Australian couple. Along with a senior guide, we headed to Pokhara where they were waiting. Summer had ripened and I spent a difficult night in the suffocating heat mingled with anticipation of my first task as a tour guide. We set off to Naya Pul at six am the next morning and it was towards midday that we finally started our trek.

Our first stop was Tikhedhunga. Since we would be taking an uphill path the next day, our guests proposed that we start early. The cool morning was refreshing and we went uphill in full swing. At midday we settled for some rest. When we arrived at Ghorepani (2,874m), the colorful village with identical looking houses of blue and green roods made a delightful sight.
