The major attraction of the trip is the splendid sunrise at Poon hill. It is a wonderful walking adventure route in the Himalayan foothills in the Annapurna region. 

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

At Ghorepani, the mountains get much nearer; Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri dominates the view here, the Ghorapani and Ghandruk is large but beautiful village; the path ahead to tadapani is through dense temperate forests;it is lovely walk with superb views of Annapurna South and Machhapuchhre from Bhaisi Kharka and Tadapani. A crest beyond Deurali, before Ghorepani, affords a stunning panoramic of the Annapurnas and Dhaulagiri that equals the magnificent vista from Poon Hill. Although the trek involves walking up and down the hill through the region, this trek is one of the easy ones in Nepal. Unlike Annapurna Circuit Trek or Annapurna Base Camp Trek, this adventure stays low in the elevation that makes it easy to go through. As the adventure goes in the lower mountains, mostly walking through the middle hills, you will enjoy nature and views. Cultural wonders of the region come in addition to the nature and mountain views.

Lush forest, mostly consisting of rhododendron trees, gives a wonderful experience of nature walk. You will also enjoy one of the best sunrises over the mountains on the trip.
