Poon Hill – Ghandruk Superb Trekking

Are you pressured by time and yet wanting superb views of the Annapurna? Embark on the Poon Hill – Ghandruk circuit trek with Himalayan Glacier’s expert team. Poon Hill – Ghandruk route is a popular trekking trail in Nepal. The views of the Annapurna range are spectacular and from Poon Hill at Ghorepani they line up as if waiting for a mug shot from your camera.

Poon Hill – Ghandruk trekking route offers you the best chance to see village life in the region. Local people built and maintain the tracks and they serve as lifelines for them. Herds of goats, water buffalo and horses can regularly be seen along the way. Porters bringing both food in for the village and trekkers’ bags are also commonly seen along the way.

Your first day journey (4-5 hours) covers from Pokhara to Birethanti and last at Ulleri. On the way to Uleri, you can capture the superb views of Annapurna South and Hiunchuli on a clear day and plenty of fresh mountain air as well.

The next day, your trek lasts at Ghorepani. In Ulleri to Ghorepani section, you climb gently through the green hills and forests around. Furthermore, this route also enhances you to encounter lots of horse trains, and clearer views of Annapurna.

The next section of your journey, Ghorepani to Ghandruk, brings forth majestic views of Annapurna Himalayan range. For the majestic view, get up early in the morning for the dawn viewing of the peaks from Poon Hill (3210m). Crystal clear mountains linger into the horizon in both directions. It is absolutely superb and a sight you won’t forget for a long time. Then after, move ahead for Ghandruk section of your trip.

Memorable Annapurna Sunrise Trek

“We came to Himalayan Glacier with the idea that we couldn’t do a lot of walking because we weren’t fit and hadn’t have lots of exercise lately. So we choosed Poonhill to be our destination. At the start, we didn’t know that our legs strength can made it to Poonhill and back in 5 days, but we decided to try.

In these 5 days, we experienced many things. Many things that was once in a lifetime!!!! Everything we’ve seen and met was just wonderful. Breathtaking long walk mountains by mountains that we couldn’t imagine how could we did it, beautiful nature and stunning Himalayas view, nice people that we met along the way, everything was so great.
These couldn’t be happened without you “Himalayan Glacier”. Our guide and porters were so helpful and friendly. They made our first trekking experience turned into the most memorable trip we ever had.

Now, we have a look of the picture of your other trekking trips on your website and we think about to go back to have another nice trekking experience with you for sure. But we need more exercise!!!!!
Thank you for create such a nice trip for us.

I must mention our trek leader Hom Nath in particular. He has a very good understanding of what we are trying to achieve in our immersion program, so not only is he a thorough professional in the way he acts as Trek leader, he is able to contribute to the whole experience and bring his story to our students as well.
