Ghorepani / Ghandruk Trek

The journey to the Ghorepani / Ghandruk Trek begins from north of Pokhara and makes a gradual ascent along the Modhi Kola River to Ghorepani. An early wake up at Ghorepani and a short hike to the famous Poon hill before sunrise is a major highlight of this trip. The view from Poon hill is said to be one of the best on the Annapurna circuit. As the sun peeks over the horizon, illuminating a maze of peaks from Annapurna to Dhaulagiri, the epic scene will leave you speechless. We then continue to Ghandruk – Nepal’s second largest Gurung settlement, famous for its colorful bazaar, cultural museum and local charm. Though this trip won’t take you far from the comforts of civilization, it’s a great option for those who desire a shorter trek with a genuine taste of Nepali culture and spectacular mountain views.
