This trail fits all kinds of trekkers. The path to legendary Poon Hill climbs up the famous Ulleri uphill, which, if walked steadily, takes 2-3 hours to reach the top, but if you take it easy, it takes a whole day to climb up to reach the day's destination, Ghorepani.
After an evening at Ghorepani, the pinnacle of the trip is the next day when we reach the top of Poon Hill, also known as the "Wonder of Asia," where we will get the best sunrise view in the garden of the Himalayas. Mt. Fishtail 6997M, Mt. Annapurna South 7219M, Mt. Annapurna I 8091M, Mt. Nilgiri 7061M, Mt. Gangapura 7455M, Mt. Dhaulagiri 8172M, Mt. Dhaulagiri I 7751M, and Mt. Dhaulagiri II 7715M
Early in the morning, a determined traveler climbs up to reach the top of the hill to capture the beauty, both in heart and soul, and for the beloved camera. On Poon Hill, you will enjoy the glowing colors of nature from one side to another, the rising sun, and its reflection on the mountain before we see the sun. From the top of the hill, we see the Tibetan plateau, the city behind the mountains, the world's deepest gorge, the world's seventh-highest Dhaulagiri range, and many more. Here at the top, you become an artist, critic, environmentalist, and happy soul to be able to see one of the beautiful creations of nature.
At Poon Hill, joy and love are tender and bless each soul with passion and a sign of victory. The differences in topography and climatic conditions amaze you with the variety in vegetation at each step and at each corner. After spending one beautiful morning on top of the hill with other happy travelers, you know you'll return someday.
The way down to Ghandruk's "Ethnic Gurung village" makes one wonder which way was good climbing up or climbing down. Nonetheless, the walk down is enjoyable, with a long stretch of easy trail. We will walk through the rhododendron forest with occasional encounters with Himalayan trucks (mules) passing by with loads on their backs.
Walking through the deep valley foot trails, the green surroundings, the river, and watching birds climb down from the top of the cliff to below the free-flowing river to a short uphill to one of the mountain views at Tadapani is another beautiful destination from where Annapurna South is just Our path then takes us to stone-tiled, sleepy Ghandruk, where we can rest and reflect on the journey with beautiful culture and nature.
Back in Pokhara, warm music welcomes you back to enjoy the evening.
