The Famous Ghorepani Poonhill Trek Of Greenhill hiking in some of the most naturally beautiful environments, ever. This trek falls in the Annapurna foothills with master viewpoints on Poonhill where we get to see some of the highest peaks in the world…this trip offers all the best of trekking in Nepal. Enjoy trekking in the midst of spectacular mountain scenery through charismatic villages inhabited by the Gurungs and Magars who inhabit this region the most. We hike through dense rhododendron forests full of different bird species and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the striking peaks of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline hereabouts.
This wonderful trek climaxes as you climb Poonhill at the break of dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain sceneries on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m.) and Annapurna at (8,091m.) along with a fantastic display of other peaks, slowly begin to appear like magic before your eyes, leaving you breathless for some moments. This is a highly rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by those who truly love nature and the beauty that comes with it.
Meet our representative at the airport who will transfer you to the Hotel. Hotel checking-in and go for sightseeing tour. Overnight in Kathmandu.
Leave your hotel for a quick morning flight to Pokhara. Spend the rest of the day relaxing in this beautiful mountain city and prepare for the trek the following day.
We'll kick the day off with a post-breakfast drive to Nayapul, where we'll take the first steps of our trek! Our path will take us past the TIMS checkpost and entry to the Annapurna Conservation Area (time for a permit check!), winding through charming farmland and the Kymche Waterfall. The walking is easy and the views are beautiful. Our first stopover is in Ghandruk, an ornate traditional village that is also the home of the Annapurna Conservation Project.
We'll be doing some steep climbing today, although not terribly much of it. The path of ascent is a scenic one, winding through forests of magnolia and rhododendron. In flowering season, the sights and scents are absolutely amazing! If you keep your eyes peeled, you'll catch sight of the Nepal gray langur monkey chirping at his peers as he passes through the treetops overhead! Tadapani is a major stopping point on the Annapurna trekking circuit, featuring stunning views of Annapurna II, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Machapuchare, the famed "Fish Tail" peak.
The trek from Tadapani to Ghorepani is notoriously hilly, with lots of up-and-down along the way! Your legs will feel the stretch, but you will delight at the sight of the dense, flowering forests all around you. Our path brings us over stony steps surrounded on all sides by dense undergrowth and creeping vines, making this leg of the trek feel like a proper adventure! We’ll cross the river by a handmade wooden bridge and gain Ghorepani, which has outstanding views of Dhaulagiri.
The day kicks off early with an excursion to Poon Hill and an indescribably wonderful panorama of three Himalayan peaks (Dhaulagiri I, Annapurna I, and Manalsu) illuminated by the glowing rays of sunrise. From here, we'll also be treated to views of the 6,000m-deep Kali Gandaki Gorge and the visual border of Nepal and Tibet as divided by the trans-Himalayan ranges. It's back to our lodge for a late breakfast, and then we’re back on the trekking path! The stone steps are back again, stretching our legs and making for a vigorous early afternoon. We'll stop for the night at Ulleri, where you can savor your last views of Annapurna South.
It's not a long walk between Ulleri and Nayapul, allowing us ample time for the 5-hour drive back to Pokhara, and still leaving time for a half-day tour of the city that trekkers love. This is the home of the tranquil World Peace Pavilion, as well as the International Mountain Museum - an apt landmark for a team of newly-minted Annapurna trekkers! Be sure to take a look at the traditional Nepali jewelry on display at the market, as it is one of one of the area's specialty handicrafts.
The six-hour drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu brings us back the way we originally came, ending again in a comfortable hotel. Your long trek is complete: it's time for some rest! After an afternoon to nap and relax, we'll meet up one last time for a celebratory dinner at one of the town's finest Nepalese restaurants, where you can give us your feedback on the trek.
Today you will be free for your own activities like shopping. Afternoon we will drop you at the Kathmandu Airport end of the package.
Package cost always depends on the number of people travelling in your group, standard of the hotels you like to take, the mode of transportations you choose as (by private vehicle, tourist bus, plane, 4WD) and the period you are travelling (High season, Low season) etc. Please click on the next tab (INQUIRY/ BOOKING) and send us your inquiry.
