Trekking Destinations > Annapurna > Ghorepani Poonhill Ghandrung Trek
The Annapurna region of Nepal, a couple of hundred kilometres northwest of Kathmandu, is reknowned for its blend of undisturbed nature, spectacular mountain views, and embracing culture. The Annapurna Circuit is typically rated as one of the "top 20" trekking experiences worldwide...Now that is an understatement! See the Photo
This is a solid option for a short trek into the foothills to the north of Pokhara which includes scenic mountains and a fine slice of traditional village culture. The itinerary suits those who want to see and feel the area in a short time period.
Poon hill (3210 m) is an excellent viewpoint for a panoramic view of Annapurna Himalayan range. The top of hill can be reached easily from the settlement of Ghorepani. Ghandruk is a large traditional Gurung village.
