Ghorepani Poonhill Trek

All of us have heard about the majestic snowcapped Himalayas, isn’t it? Ever thought of traversing and exploring the Himalayas? Well, if it’s your first time trekking and you don’t want to opt for a full-fledged trek at high elevations, we have the perfect package for you! A relatively easy and altitude free trek, the Ghorepani Poonhill trek is definitely unmissable among trekkers. Experience coming face to face with the mountains and the mountains being sun-kissed as the sun rises. Also, get a chance to enlighten yourselves with the awe-inspiring local culture and the humble peoples’ lifestyles.

The lively Lake city of Pokhara is where we will be starting the trek. Ghandruk and Ghorepani, two of the many villages we’ll be crossing are the largest settlements of the Gurung people who are extremely welcoming and down to earth. Through irregular bumpy roads, steep trails, rhododendron forests and aesthetic terrace farms, we eventually get to the highlight of our trip which is the spectacular and stunning sunrise at Poon Hill.

Destination Unlimited would like to recommend you to venture on this trek all through the year except the monsoon, as this region faces extremely high rainfall during monsoon. Compelled to bring along your children or elderly people? Well, we assure you that the trek is not at all grueling and demanding, rather it is going to rejuvenate and relax you. So, without hesitation, bring along your entire family! With our experienced team, we guarantee that you get what you’ve paid for. Moreover, this trek will definitely be a wonderful memory.
