”Human life is far more important than just getting to the top of a mountain.” – Edmund Hillary
The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is Nepal's most popular short and simple hike. This walk takes place in the magnificent Annapurna region, which provides stunning vistas of verdant landscapes and snow-capped mountains throughout the journey. You'll also have the opportunity to learn about the Gurung, Magar, and Thakali cultures and traditions.
From the famous Poon Hill viewpoint and the lovely Gurung Village of Ghandruk, this adventurous trek is known for stunning vistas of the Annapurna Himalayan range. This is a moderate hike because the highest point is only 3,210 meters. This trek can be completed by anyone in excellent health.
