How does the Annapurna Sunrise Trek unfold?
Firstly, we drive for about 2-hours to reach Nayapul. From here, the trekking begins. By the end of next day, we will reach Ghorepani. It is possible to hike up to Poon Hill the same day for sunset view. As for the sunrise in the Annapurna the next morning, it’s not something you’d want to miss. Trekking in Annapurna will let you feel the Himalayan panorama while providing you the opportunities to get close to Annapurna’s local Culture and lifestyle. Even though the sunrise trek is short, some parts of the trip is difficult. For instance, climbing the Ulleri hill with thousands of steps tests your limit.
