The Poon Hill Experience
 
Trip Overview Trip Notes Day by Day Date& price Book this trip Enquire this trip
   
   Taking Nepal's most renowned trekking route, we head out of Pokhara towards the spectacular villages in the Annapurna region and we first explore Tirkhe Dhunga, a fabulous little village in the hills above Nayapul. Our next stop is the village of Ghorepani where we sense magic in its little houses, alleyways, hospitable cheerful people and the views of the Himalayas all around it. We then head for the soaring Poon Hill for the view of the sunrise in the morning where the cobalt skies turn saffron in the sunlight and remote hamlets awaken to a new day. At the foot of Ban Thanti, directly below a hill, dazzling little houses can be seen and they seem almost close enough to touch. This is the village of Ghandruk which is reached after we continue right across the spine of the forests of rhododendron and oak. The hike is light and gives us access to the off beaten paths. Rather than discovering the temples, palaces in Kathmandu that have absorbed visitors for thousands of years, this trek will give us an opportunity to learn the folklore of these little villages, see beautiful mountains, learn of new cultures and explore Nepal's marvelous hidden treasures.
