Probably, Annapurna Panorama Trek  is the most admired trek among all trekking routes of Nepal. And this trek is a well suited soft trekking for people who are willing for real mountainous experience within short duration.
After a short driving to Nayapul (New Bridge) from Pokhara, this trek passes through the old and traditional village of Gurungs and Magars and slightly goes up to a hill station called Tikhe Dhunga and just after crossing the river, for a hour this trek goes rapidly up and starts to explore around delightfully ticked rhododendron jungle. Poon Hill, the most magnificent viewpoint from lowest elevation might be the first attraction of the whole Ghorepani excursion where you can see fabulous views of Himalayan snow-capped mountains in 360 degree landscape with sunrise over Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. This trek can be done throughout the year devoid of any suspicion.

Details Itinerary of Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu [1300M / 4665FT], transfer to Hotel

Once we complete for immigration formalities and collect our luggage from the airlines we will proceed to arrival gate. Upon our arrival in Kathmandu, we will be picked up by representative of Ambition Himalaya Treks and Expeditions P. Ltd. We will slightly proceed to our hotel with a comfortable private vehicle to our hotel. In the evening we will go for typical Nepali dinner with company representative and will have briefing about the trip.

Day 02: Kathmandu valley Sightseeing and trek preparation

Kathmandu is known for its historical and cultural values. One can’t say that how many temples exist in Kathmandu valley and how important are they. After having you breakfast, your day will start with our guided tour of Kathmandu valley which includes world heritage listed sites includes Swoyambhunath or The Monkey Temple, Pashupatinath temple,the famous Hindu Temple, Bouddhanth Stupa and finally The Kathmandu Durbar Square.

Day 03: Drive to Pokhara [820M / 2690FT], 6-7 transfer to Hotel

As per the itinerary we will either have option to fly to Pokhara or drive to Pokhara. Flying is of course shorter than drive and gives us time to explore Pokhara City. However, driving to Pokhara will be littler longer but gives us original views of bus riding on the bank of the river along through beautiful green hills. The flight is about 35 minutes while bus ride is about 6-7 hours. The road is not comfortable like in the west and is bumpy in many places. Finally after reaching to Pokhara we will transfer to our hotel and get fresh before we start walking on the streets of Pokhara. Pokhara is far cleaner than Kathmandu and I am sure that we will enjoy the cleanness of this dust-free city.

Day 04: Drive to Nayapul [1070M / 3510FT] 1: 30 minute by private vehicle & trek to Tikhedhunga [1540M / 5052FT] 3-4 hours walk

This is the first day of our fully guided Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking. Early in the morning we will have breakfast in the Hotel and start driving to Nayapul before commencing our trek. The drive to Nayapul is about 1.5 hours through beautiful green hills of Annapurna region. The journey on a private car will surely be more comfortable comparing to a local bus. After reaching Nayapul we will start walking which we will call trekking later on. The trail starts with easy down and flat walk before starting our gentle climbing to Tikhedhunga. After crossing Birenthanti [1080M / 3543FT] the trail will start climbing through rural villages of Annapurna; Matathanti, Ramgai, Sudame, Hille and finally to Tikhedhunga following thundering Modi River all the way. Trekking to Tikhedhunga is not difficult and the trail is quite easy to walk. Most of the time we will follow newly constructed motor road to reach the destination. The villages along the way are thinly settled and we are away from crowded city and motor horns. In the evening we will have briefing by the guide regarding the trek tomorrow; get our dinner and finish our first day journey here.

Day 05: Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani [2860M / 9383FT] 6-7 hours walk

We will have breakfast in the Hotel and start our trekking to Ghorepani; one of the most important destination of our trek. The trek starts after crossing the same Modi River through a suspension bridge. Right after crossing the bridge we will have to make a steep climbing for an hour or a little more to reach Ulleri Village [2080M / 6824FT]. From the middle of the uphill trail to Ulleri we will see Annapurna South and later on Hiun Chuli and Mt. Fishtail. The village is quite thick and have lots of lodges and shops for trekkers walking on this way. Leaving this village behind, we will pass several other small villages like Banthanti [2300M / 7545FT.] and Nangethanti [2450M / 8038FT]. Continuing the trekking inside the Rhododendron forests, we will be reaching our destination for today; Ghorepani Village. These Rhododendron forests looks amazing during March - Late April. The village is one of the biggest village of the whole trekking and offers you beautiful views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Mt. Fishtail, Dhaulagiri range etc.

Day 06: Hike to Poon Hill [3210M / 10,531FT] early morning for sunrise viewing over Himalayan peaks and back to tea house, have breakfast, trek to Tadapani [2590M / 8497FT] 6-7 hours walk

Here we will start our most important part of our whole trekking; hike to Poon Hill. We are sure that Ghorepani Trekking without going to Poon Hill view point will be “curry without salt”; we don’t want to eat that. Poon Hill is the magnificent view point and offers you amazing views of all the peaks of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. We will have to start our hike early in the morning so that we can reach the top of Poon Hill before sun rises over the Himalayas. This sunrise over the snowcapped mountains is simply amazing. From the top of the Poon Hill we will have amazing views of Dhaulagiri I, II, III, IV, V, Dhampus Peak, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, Barah Sikhar, Mt. Fishtail, Nilgiri South, Tukuche and many more. After enjoying these amazing views here on the top we will come back to our lodge and have our breakfast.

After having the breakfast we will start our trek to next destination; Tadapani. At first the trail climbing to Deurali [2990M / 9809FT] and goes down to Banthanti [2520M / 8267FT] before heading for another down and uphill climbing to Tadapani. The trail to Tadapani is up-down - up-down but is a beautiful walk inside the green forests of Rhododendrons, Oaks and Bamboo. En route we will be enjoying the beautiful views of towering waterfalls, far sight valleys, numerous birds and some wild animals on a lucky day. Finally after climbing steep trail for a while we will reach Tadapani village for our next overnight staying.

Day 07: Tadapani to Tolkha [1700M / 5577FT] 5-6 hours walk

We will have breakfast in our lodge and will start our journey to Ghandruk for another village. Trek is Ghandruk is short and pleasant downhill walking through green forests of Himalayas. These forests are turned into red color during March - late April. As we will be ending our trek on the following day the mountains also seems to be going far from us. After finishing this pleasant and easy downhill walk with beautiful views of Annapurna South, Hiunchuli and Fishtail we will be reaching Ghandruk. Ghandruk has got different names; some call it ‘the village of stones’ and some call it ‘the village of Gurkhas’. We will continue trek down to Modi River beside we will have lunch in Kyumi village and cross start uphill until Landruk village. After that gradual hike to Tolkha. Overnight in lodge
