Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a great trek for beginners and family groups.  This short, five-day itinerary is at a lower elevation than many other treks and the gradual ascension to the highest viewpoint (3210 m, 10,521 ft) allows acclimatization without fear of high elevation problems.  From the viewpoint of Poon Hill, the stunning Himalayan peaks of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Manaslu, Himchuli and others can be viewed. The golden sunrise over the white peaks is one of the best views in Nepal. You will also experience the culture and lives of the ethnic Magar and Gurung people as you walk through and stay in their villages.   You will be inspired each day as you gaze upon the Himalayas, colorful rhododendron forest, vibrant green hills, waterfalls and visit local cultures.
