Ghorepani Poon Hill is located in the Myagdi district in north-central Nepal. It lies 17 km. from the district capital of Beni at an altitude of approximately 2874m. There are a number of guest houses that provide lodging and meals. Most trekkers will spend a night at Ghorepani before rising early for a trek to Poon Hill (3210m). This is a famous place to watch the sunrise and is very popular. The view is spectacular with the Annapurna bathed in the early sunlight and the deep valleys contrasting in the shadows. Mt Annapurna is 8091m and on this trek, you will also see Mt Dhaulagiri 8167m

Similarly, it offers several varieties of colorful orchids on show along with a clear view of the towering expanse of Mt Annapurna.

The trekkers who wish to explore the different experiences of culture and heritages, distinct Nepalese lifestyle, views of the Himalayas, and rewarding nature; the evergreen trail of the Annapurna Region trek can be adventurous.  On our whole trek, we use the tea house lodge for our feedings and accommodation.

Ghorepani lies on a major trail linking other villages as well as the Annapurna Base Camp. This trek should be comfortable for most people with a normal level of fitness. There are many wonderful photo opportunities on this trek.

Très bon guide pour notre 1er trek

Nous avons passé 5 jours sur le trek de Poon Hill Avec Uttam qui s'est occupé de tout pour notre première expérience au Népal, s'adaptant très bien à notre rythme. Nous en avons Aussi pas mal appris sur la vie au Népal, il savait très bien où il allait et nous a même fait prendre des petits raccourcis sympa. Les hébergements choisi étaient bien et la nourriture super bonne ! Merci beaucoup!

A unique experience

"I had such a wonderful time with this company. I came to Nepal alone and was looked after from the minute I landed until I left. Everything went smoothly. My guide Uttam was very knowledgeable and I felt safe throughout the trip. He knew the best spots for incredible views and is such a lovely person. I couldn't fault the trip in any way and I am already looking to book another trip with them. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore the himalayas."

My friend and I were in Nepal for a Trekking. We didn’t have a lot of time to trek in Nepal, but Mr Uttam from Himalaya Trekking Team organize our trip to beautiful Poon Hiill Trek, He was quick respond to us, super friendly, and helpful in all of the preparation. This was our first Nepal trek, so he makes us very comfortable and allowed us to go as slow as we liked. I highly recommend his services to anyone considering a trek in Nepal!! We will see you next time.
