Ghorepani-Ghandruk short trek offers an opportunity to make a trek into the world-famous Annapurna region. The trek is also known as Poon Hill Trek. When the weather is clear at Poon Hill, the first rays of sunlight reach the summit of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna South. Get ready for your cameras to take snaps of the magnificent views. Enjoy the mesmerizing green and snow-capped mountains, including Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, the Annapurnas, the Dhaulagiri, and many more. Similarly, you’ll also enjoy the hospitality of ethnic people living in rural & rustic villages.
This is one of the most scenic teahouse treks in the Annapurna region. From Ghorepani village, you arise early in the morning to go to Poonhill for a spectacular 360-degree view of the whole Annapurna range, including the snowy peaks of the Macchupucchare. Later on, you continue to the Gurung village of Ghandruk. The Gurung originally migrated from western Tibet. They are renowned for their exotic traditional dress, the key feature being a neck ornament made of coral, gold, and turquoise beads for the women. Many aspects of their culture can be seen in the local museum.
