Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek does not comprise long trekking route although it covers abundant areas of Annapurna circuit. The trek illustrates the way to Poonhill. This is the reason behind the trek being named as the Poonhill Trek. Annapurna has been listed as one of most excellent trekking routes in the world and it seems as no shock that the trekking route pulls towards it a huge number of tourists, domestic and international, every year. Ghorepani Poon hill Trekking is designed for those people who do not have sufficient time to spend in a trek but are willing to take all the advantages.

 

The Ghorepani Poonhill trek sets you in one of the most awe-inspiring panoramas in the Himalayas. Walking through impressive forested areas, you reach a maximum altitude of 3210 m. Anyone of reasonable physical fitness should be able to comfortably complete this trek. The highlight of the Ghorepani trek is a visit to Poonhill (3210 m) early next day, from where we will be able to see a spectacular sunrise over the whole Himalayan range and surrounding rice terraces (a photographer’s paradise!).

We strongly recommend the purchase of travel cancellation insurance to protect you from the unexpected.

If you are in remote areas, please note that emergency rescue & evacuation can be very expensive.

 

We also strongly urge you to consider rescue and evacuation insurance if your own policy does not provide the coverage need­ed. Services available may include, but are not limited to, helicopter evacuation, medical care, etc.

 

If you choose not to purchase insurance, you assume full responsibility.
