Trip Introduction

On The Annapurna Sunrise and Everest View Trek we tread on two of the most popular trekking regions in the world - the Annapurna and Everest. The 17-day journey features a wide range of spectacular scenery combined with unique cultural encounters. The Trek begins from the ancient city of Kathmandu, from where a short flight takes us to Pokhara. The real trekking experience begins from Nayapul. Arrival at Poon Hill (3210m) is a reward in itself as it is considered by many as one of the most beautiful viewpoints on earth. From Ghandruk we return to Pokhara and fly back to Kathmandu. We fly to Lukla from Kathmandu the next day. From Lukla, the trek continues through lush vegetation of Sagarmatha National Park, with pine forests, rhododendron flowers and an abundance of wildlife, to Namche Bazaar. The following days' trekking will bring us to the village of Tengboche, home to the highest Buddhist monastery in the world. From Tengboche, we retrace our path back to Kathmandu and end The Annapurna Sunrise and Everest View Trek.

Ghorepani is an interesting place with small shops and stalls for selling local products and crafts. The town has two parts: one in a saddle and the other a few hundred feet lower. We stop at the higher part of the Ghorepani village that offers panoramic views of the surrounding mountains including Annapurna South and Nilgiri mountains. Since Ghorepani lies quite higher than our previous stop, we begin to feel the chilly weather especially in the evenings. Overnight in Ghorepani.

After trekking some more minutes, we enter the village of Ghandruk, a slope settlement with stone houses mostly inhabited by the Gurung people.
