Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is the shortest trek elevating to 3210m on the north-west of Pokhara in Nepal. In fact, Nepal is a world in itself with three major geographical belts such as terai (plains), hills and Himalayas in South Asia.  Wherein, Pokhara (1400m) is the nearest city for the trek to Poon Hill. The voyage of life takes birth in Kathmandu directly from a capital city Kathmandu or Pokhara as opted by trekkers.

Initially, the wonderful journey begins from the Pokhara taking private vehicles to Nayapul and then on feet to Ulleri (1500m). Further, trekkers encounter many beautiful scenes, Rhododendron forest, greeneries, terrace farming, and organic vegetation adjacent to the trail. Besides, nature keeps them thrilled as it goes beyond their imagination.

At the same time, the adventure continues clambering on 3280 stone step to reach the alluring Magar community. Meanwhile, the voyage holds on for a night to rest and experience the prepossessing tradition and culture of the local tribe. Obviously, the local food is always delicious and the hospitality of the local tribe is amusing.

Furthermore, the unimaginable beauty on the way to Ghorepani (2874m) captivates tourists. Significantly, every step brings enchanting views of Himalayan glaciers as if they want to touch the sky. In addition to this, the fine art of nature such as scenic beauty, floras, and faunas brings peace to the mind. The Ghorepani becomes the next base sighting the blissful Annapurna range from there. Ghorepani is freezing but keep us warm with its exquisite beauty all around.

The discoverers head to Poon Hill early morning to see the stunning sunrise. In the meantime, the sun rays striking the mountains turn the Himalayas in golden resplendent glaciers. Also, the golden glowing mountains touch your soul making you realize the beauty of Himalayas. Likewise, the elegant view of golden mountains projects the Himalayas as if it is of pure shining gold. Poon Hill, as well as the chain of mountains, leave trekkers flabbergasted. The fascinating range of mountains over 7000 meters such as Annapurna, Manaslu, and Dhaulagiri astound hikers.

At the moment, hikers take 360-degree panoramic shots of the mountain range. Later, hikers return to Tadapani (2630m) trekking down. Surprisingly, Tadapani is the best place to cherish the memories of the past trek and enthuse for the upcoming beautiful village. Similarly, the trail keeps surprising with its greenery, traditional farming, floras, and faunas. In other words, Heaven is myth and Nepal is real.

After Tadapani, the trekkers head to Ghandruk village (1939m). The astounding village introduces to beautiful rhododendron forest, Oak trees, and extraordinary birds in the first place. The village is uniquely a splendid and unsurpassed place to live through the beautiful views. In fact, Gurung tribes, their culture, traditions, the Himalayan lifestyle infuse discoverers with love and peace. The village projects beautiful views of Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) - 6993m. It is so clear and huge that makes you feel that you are into the lap of Mt. Fishtail.  In the end, a beautiful night is spent in the village noshing the delicious food (daal-bhaat). The hikers wrap the memories in their soul and cherish the reminiscences of Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek.
