Every year thousands of trekkers and adventurers alike make the journey to the foothills of the majestic Annapurna Ghorepani Poonhill Trek in Himalayan Range to witness the mesmerizing views of sunrise as seen from Poonhill. The Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is a perfect introduction to trekkers wishing to journey to the Himalayas and also one of the best locations for those wishing to trek a break from strenuous Himalayan trail. The pleasant atmosphere and landscape surrounding the trek make this ultimate experience accessible to people of all ages and experience.
The journey of Annapurna Ghorepani Poonhill Trek begins with a memorable journey around the UNESCO world heritage sites spread across the valley.

Heading down, we enter lush green forests hosting varieties of floras and faunas making our way down towards Tadapani.

Santosh was our guide during our Nepal trek in Nov 2015. He was such a delightful young man, very caring and knowledgeable. He also made sure that, not only was the trek an amazing adventure, but we had a lot of fun. I can highly recommend him as a guide and, if I were to return to Nepal, he would be my first choice. Thank you Santosh for such great memories.I wish you well.
Unforgetable Experiance !!! I did Poon Hill trekking with Santosh as my guide for 5 day. Because me alone make i am so close with Santosh. He take care everything from food to accomodation. The journey is so smooth and sure with my speed. But the journey become more interesting and touching when Santosh ask me if i have time to visit his grandmother at Pokhara ( 2 hrs journey by of road bus). He bring me with his friend and family and i feel so touching. Santosh not only as a guide and also can make me as his family.
