ENLIVEN YOUR SENSES
Trek from Ghandruk to Ghorepani is one of the most enlivening. On the way to Ghorepani and Tadapani, Poon Hill is the transit point offering a platform to view the sunrise over the majestic snow-clad Annapurna ranges.
The tourists come out of their lodgings bleary -eyed and hands rubbing their eyes in the pre-dawn to consume what nature has to offer.
On arriving the platform on the hill-top is fully moon-lit and enthusiasm to see the first ray of the sun over the range becomes stronger.
One of the most popular and shorter treks in the Annapurna Region is called Poonhill Trek. It is a great introduction to trekking because of different land scape, mixed culture and suitable for experts to beginners and varied ages, from young to mature. Along the way, one can enjoy the scenic grandeur of the mountains, the terraced hillsides stepping down to valleys rib boned with flowing streams and cascading waterfalls.
The Poon Hill Trek will take one through several villages where you can enjoy experiencing the rich culture of the Gurungs and Magars people. Traveling through the magnificent ancient rhododendron trees with red and pink blossoms will make one believe they are journeying into an enchanted forest. The ultimate thrill will be reaching your destination of Poon Hill, especially at sunrise when one can see the sun come up over the towering peaks of Dhaulagiri (8167m world’s 7th highest mountain.) and Annapurna 1 (8091m 10th highest mountain). The spectacle from Poon Hill is both breathtaking and inspiring
