For the travelers who have a short holiday or weekend plan to visit the Himalayas 3 days Poon Hill trek is the best option. It is a short and family-friendly trek in Nepal. The trek is relatively easy and yet, filled with adventurous thrill. It is suitable for those who are reasonably fit. We begin 3 days Poon hill trek after a two-hour drive through knobby roads to Nayapul from Pokhara. We begin walking to Ulleri via Tikhedhunga village. The very next day from Ulleri, we continue trekking through the rhododendron forests to Ghorepani village, which is the highlight of our trip as we get there by walking through pretty tough uphill and downhill trails, via streams, jungles, and farming lands. Ghorepani is a beautiful and prepossessing village with nice and homely lodges, friendly people and the view of the great range of Annapurna looming about throughout the year.
