Ghorepani pun Hill Trek is located on the small village in Magadi district of northwestern Nepal. Popular for its scenic and cultural beauty, Ghorepani pun Hill trek is one of the most trekked regions in Nepal by internal and external tourists alike. Its easy nature coupled with intense gratification has contributed to thousands of tourists flocking the region every year. Despite the buzz that comes with popularity, the region has successfully retained its old mountain charm and beauty intact. Ghorepani pun Hill trek was opened to trekkers only in the 1970s and is protected commendably under the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.The 10-days-long Ghorepani poon hill trek begins with a scenic bus ride to Pokhara in Kaski district from Kathmandu. The country’s no. 1 tourist destination in itself, Pokhara is also the gateway to several trekking regions in western Nepal. From Pokhara, we will drive a short distance to Nayapul from where our trekking will commence.

We will trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek via a small Gurung village called Tikhedhunga. While trekking down from Ghorepani Pun Hill, we will use a different route to further enrich the trekking experience. We will trek down to Pokhara via villages of Tolka and Kande. From Pokhara, we will drive back to Kathmandu for a cultural city tour scheduled for the next day. Finally, the Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek comes to end here. Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek is rightly one of the most popular and beautiful trekking routes in Nepal, as it offers splendid mountain views without the hassle of trekking to very high and demanding attitude. The trek is also known as Annapurna Panorama Trek since it offers stunning views of peaks above 8,000m elevation like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1 and Mt. Nilgiri. The main highlight of the trek is a hike to Pun Hill – a famous viewpoint in the western region. From here, trekkers can relish in a 360-degree view of over 20 silver peaks, the Pokhara valley, and Mustang region.

Sunrise and sunset views from Pun Hill are truly magnificent as it is almost surreal to behold the sunlight painting the silver peaks tangerine. Another gratuity of Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek is that it unlocks the doors to some of the most interesting civilizations in Nepal. Throughout the trek and in Ghorepani and Pun Hill, we can witness the interesting and rich culture of the Gurungs, Puns, and Magars – famous as Gurkhas for their bravery throughout the world. We can visit the local museums, community houses, cultural centers, and interact with the locals on an individual basis to further know about their culture, civilization, and heritage, The trekking trail strikes a perfect balance between the altitude range, vegetation, and climate to make it a memorable trekking experience. The trek is of only moderate difficulty and is suitable for people of all age groups in good health. Since the trekking duration isn’t long, it is also a suitable trekking choice for individuals who cannot allocate a good number of days for a vacation. However, for individuals wishing to extend their journey, we readily customize the trekking package.

Small company great service

7th Apr, 2022

We were planning to trek in Nepal for the first time. Choosing a company took us time. Through our friend, we found out about Team Himalaya and enquired. Raj, the main man, helped us right from the beginning by matching activities within the trip so that they best suited our style and expectations.

We decided the Annapurna Base trek.The views en route, of the mountains of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and of sunrise and sunset from Poonhill Base Camp were breathtaking.

We want to thank Team Himalaya and the team for the wonderful experience in Nepal. Small company and but great service, highly recommended

We hade a 7 day trekking tour along Ghorepani trek. Our team had 4 girls with little experience of trekking, however Ganas had supported us a lot with trekking stuffs and preparations for the route.
We were not lucky enough to be able to see sunrise at Poon Hill due to rain and clouds, still, the guide tried his best with other recommendations so that we can satisfy our thirst for spectacular snow mountain view. Ganas is also very experienced and knowledgable about Nepal and trek routes, talking with him was quite informative. The porters are friendly and cutie as well :)

One recommendation for unexperienced trekker is that you should let the guide know in advance for more suited trek route and schedule and better preparation.

We were quite happy with rooms, meals and other services included in the tour.

Thanks Ganas.

We started out trip with Zero experience in trekking. With suggestion from Ganesh we decided to trek to Poon Hill as a start for beginner like us. At start most of us felt unconfident, however with huge support from Team Himalaya we did it. Missed the sun rise on Poon Hill due to the rain but still had ton of beautiful pics and memories. Thank Ganesh and other guys in Team Himalaya for taking care of us during the time we stayed in Nepal, not only within the tour package but also additional days we spent in Kathmandu, Nagatuk, and Bhaktapur. Looking forward to see you again in Nepal. Cheers.

Ghorepani and Poon Hill trek in 4 days covering Poon Hill one of the short and easy trek. But not that easy as it sounds with some steep climb for some days especially the uphill to Ulleri village. As well an hour climb up to Poon Hill, but it was a wonderful trek once you reach on top Poon Hill at 3,210 m high.
Where we enjoyed stunning sunrise over chain of Himalayan peaks with world’s three highest mountain range. From Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu Himalaya. The walk was pleasant through beautiful rhododendron forest and lovely villages of Ghorepani and Ghandruk. I am grateful to Team Himalaya and its expert guide for making this trip so wonderful and exciting.

Ghorepani and Poon Hill, most amazing trek even though was short moderate adventure of 4 days. But every hour of walks was just wonderful with mesmerizing scenery, overlooking grand views of farm land with snow-capped peaks. I would like to recommend to all visitors in Nepal to join on this marvelous hike of few days. Where all people and age group can easily cope, the only hardest section was climb on thousands of stone steps. But overall the trek was just fabulous, the views from Ghorepani was brilliant, as well from high Poon Hill.

The sunrise was breathtaking facing panorama of snow-capped of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu with majestic Machhapuchare Himal, the famous Fish-Tail peak. 
Thanks to Team Himalaya and guide for the memorable and enjoyable Ghorepani  Poon Hill Trek.

  • Into serene woodlands lined with beautiful rhododendron, pines and oaks trees.
  • Visiting traditional Pun and Gurung villages the home of legendary Gorkha.

Ghorepani pun Hill Trek is located on the small village in Magadi district of northwestern Nepal. Popular for its scenic and cultural beauty, Ghorepani pun Hill trek is one of the most trekked regions in Nepal by internal and external tourists alike. Its easy nature coupled with intense gratification has contributed to thousands of tourists flocking the region every year. Despite the buzz that comes with popularity, the region has successfully retained its old mountain charm and beauty intact. Ghorepani pun Hill trek was opened to trekkers only in the 1970s and is protected commendably under the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.The 10-days-long Ghorepani poon hill trek begins with a scenic bus ride to Pokhara in Kaski district from Kathmandu. The country’s no. 1 tourist destination in itself, Pokhara is also the gateway to several trekking regions in western Nepal. From Pokhara, we will drive a short distance to Nayapul from where our trekking will commence.

We will trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek via a small Gurung village called Tikhedhunga. While trekking down from Ghorepani Pun Hill, we will use a different route to further enrich the trekking experience. We will trek down to Pokhara via villages of Tolka and Kande. From Pokhara, we will drive back to Kathmandu for a cultural city tour scheduled for the next day. Finally, the Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek comes to end here. Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek is rightly one of the most popular and beautiful trekking routes in Nepal, as it offers splendid mountain views without the hassle of trekking to very high and demanding attitude. The trek is also known as Annapurna Panorama Trek since it offers stunning views of peaks above 8,000m elevation like Mt. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna 1 and Mt. Nilgiri. The main highlight of the trek is a hike to Pun Hill – a famous viewpoint in the western region. From here, trekkers can relish in a 360-degree view of over 20 silver peaks, the Pokhara valley, and Mustang region.

Sunrise and sunset views from Pun Hill are truly magnificent as it is almost surreal to behold the sunlight painting the silver peaks tangerine. Another gratuity of Ghorepani Pun Hill Trek is that it unlocks the doors to some of the most interesting civilizations in Nepal. Throughout the trek and in Ghorepani and Pun Hill, we can witness the interesting and rich culture of the Gurungs, Puns, and Magars – famous as Gurkhas for their bravery throughout the world. We can visit the local museums, community houses, cultural centers, and interact with the locals on an individual basis to further know about their culture, civilization, and heritage, The trekking trail strikes a perfect balance between the altitude range, vegetation, and climate to make it a memorable trekking experience. The trek is of only moderate difficulty and is suitable for people of all age groups in good health. Since the trekking duration isn’t long, it is also a suitable trekking choice for individuals who cannot allocate a good number of days for a vacation. However, for individuals wishing to extend their journey, we readily customize the trekking package.

My wife and I completed the Poon Hill Trek through Team Himalaya. This was our second trip to Nepal with Raj and Team Himalaya. We used Raj and his team again because we had a fantactic trip last time. Trekking was enjoyable, and the scenery was breathtaking. Our guide Dawa was brilliant, very knowledgable and caring. He communicated effectively before the trek began. Then, during the trek, he made sure we were comfortable and had the best experience. Providing clear explanations, ensuring we felt comfortable during the trek. They took such great care of us every step of the way. I cannot recommend them enough!

Trekking to Annapurna Nepal

19th Apr, 2022


We were planning to trek in Nepal for the first time. Choosing a company took us time. Through our friend, we found out about Team Himalaya and enquired. Raj, the main man, helped us right from the beginning by matching activities within the trip so that they best suited our style and expectations.

We decided the Annapurna Base trek.The views en route, of the mountains of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri and of sunrise and sunset from Poonhill Base Camp were breathtaking.

We want to thank Team Himalaya and the team for the wonderful experience in Nepal. Small company and but great service, highly recommended

We hade a 7 day trekking tour along Ghorepani trek. Our team had 4 girls with little experience of trekking, however Ganas had supported us a lot with trekking stuffs and preparations for the route.
We were not lucky enough to be able to see sunrise at Poon Hill due to rain and clouds, still, the guide tried his best with other recommendations so that we can satisfy our thirst for spectacular snow mountain view. Ganas is also very experienced and knowledgable about Nepal and trek routes, talking with him was quite informative. The porters are friendly and cutie as well :)

One recommendation for unexperienced trekker is that you should let the guide know in advance for more suited trek route and schedule and better preparation.

We were quite happy with rooms, meals and other services included in the tour.

Thanks Ganas.

We started out trip with Zero experience in trekking. With suggestion from Ganesh we decided to trek to Poon Hill as a start for beginner like us. At start most of us felt unconfident, however with huge support from Team Himalaya we did it. Missed the sun rise on Poon Hill due to the rain but still had ton of beautiful pics and memories. Thank Ganesh and other guys in Team Himalaya for taking care of us during the time we stayed in Nepal, not only within the tour package but also additional days we spent in Kathmandu, Nagatuk, and Bhaktapur. Looking forward to see you again in Nepal. Cheers.

If you are thinking of hiking in Nepal, Raj is one of the best guides you can possibly have. With his knowledge of the routes paths, and people - he will take you on a cultural experience as you enjoy the beauty of the mountains. I will definitely be returning one fine day and calling upon Raj's expertise to plan my trip :)

Ghorepani and Poon Hill trek in 4 days covering Poon Hill one of the short and easy trek. But not that easy as it sounds with some steep climb for some days especially the uphill to Ulleri village. As well an hour climb up to Poon Hill, but it was a wonderful trek once you reach on top Poon Hill at 3,210 m high.
Where we enjoyed stunning sunrise over chain of Himalayan peaks with world’s three highest mountain range. From Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu Himalaya. The walk was pleasant through beautiful rhododendron forest and lovely villages of Ghorepani and Ghandruk. I am grateful to Team Himalaya and its expert guide for making this trip so wonderful and exciting.

Ghorepani and Poon Hill, most amazing trek even though was short moderate adventure of 4 days. But every hour of walks was just wonderful with mesmerizing scenery, overlooking grand views of farm land with snow-capped peaks. I would like to recommend to all visitors in Nepal to join on this marvelous hike of few days. Where all people and age group can easily cope, the only hardest section was climb on thousands of stone steps. But overall the trek was just fabulous, the views from Ghorepani was brilliant, as well from high Poon Hill.

The sunrise was breathtaking facing panorama of snow-capped of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu with majestic Machhapuchare Himal, the famous Fish-Tail peak. 
Thanks to Team Himalaya and guide for the memorable and enjoyable Ghorepani  Poon Hill Trek.
