Gorepani and Punhill

The Gorepani trek is a short, colorful trek into the Annapurna region. The trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests and past icy waterfalls where you can stop to cool off. Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which will be revealed to you as you reach the highest points of the trek. This trek offers dramatic views of the Annapurna range.

Enjoy trekking in spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurung, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below Annapurna with the picturesque fluted peak of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline. At the climax of this trek you will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain escapes on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits of the Himalayan giants (Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091)m) the mountains will slowly begin to appear, like magic, before your eyes. This beautiful trek is very enjoyable for people who love nature and beautiful landscapes.

If you want to get the most mountain views in the least amount of time, the trek up from Naya Pul to Ghorepani and then over to Ghandruk should satisfy your desire for Himalayan vistas. From the sunrise above Ghorepani to the in-your-face view of Machhapuchhare and Annapurna South from Chomrong, this trek is one of the loveliest moderate hiking in the Himalayan foothills.
