Ghorepani Poonhill Trek – The most easy
Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is the best option for beginners, families, photography, artists or just trekking enthusiasts, very easy even for children.
As we propose in the Everest region a very easy trek option, the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is also similar but in the Annapurna region.
About Ghorepani Poonhill Trek:
Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is one of the easiest trails in the Annapurna Region. It is also considered the highlight of Annapurna. The maximum height of this trek is 3200m which is of Poonhill. An amazing view of the Annapurna Range Himalayas can be witnessed. Mountains like Mtn. Machhapuchhre, Mtn.Annapurna South, Mtn. Nilgiri, Mtn.Tukuche, Mtn.Dhualagiri, Mtn.Himalchuli, and many more are seen.
This trek will be perfect for family travelers with children and to those who have very little time here in Nepal. This trail has normal 4-5 days of trekking days. A person with normal physical fitness can easily complete this beautiful trek.
This trek is also taken as one of the best trails for the cultural and lifestyle experience of Nepalese, especially of Gurung community people. You will also be able to visit Gurung cultural museum where you can try their outfits and taste their local food.
Ghorepani Trek is considered one of the safest trails in Nepal. The highest elevation is just 3200m hence there will be no fear of altitude sickness. The trails are very clear with no confusion points with the amazing hospitality that you get from the local people.
For this trek, you can either drive or take a flight to Pokhara from Kathmandu. Taking a flight will decrease a day on your overall itinerary.
We recommend this trek for all people who want to make real the dream of being in the Himalaya region but for some reason they can’t trek the highest mountains, also we strongly recommend it for families who want to give the first steps to children in trekking and discovering the life in the high mountains.
