Poon Hill is a breath-taking hill station located in the Annapurna region which is probably one of the best and stunning viewpoints in Nepal and which might be a reason for the growing fondness of people towards this destination. The hike to Poon Hill from Pokhara takes around two to three days and the viewpoint is one of the best places to see the breathtaking Himalayas that lie in the centre of Annapurna Conservation Area.

Sunrise from Poon HillGhorepani is a beautiful village that provides quality accommodations and meals to mountain trekkers, it is also quite a well-facilitated village. Many of the trekkers who are interested to spend a night nearby Poon Hill for witnessing the sunrise can stay at this village. It can be walked from the village of Ulleri in about five hours depending on the trekkers’ fitness to reach Ghorepani. The main source of income for the residents of Ghorepaani now is tourism. The place used to be a place where the travellers used to stop for water (paani in Nepali) and also to rest their horses (Ghora in Nepali). Thus, it got the name Ghorepani. As the village lies in the Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP) an entry permit is required to visit this village for foreign travelers.
