Poon Hill Family Trekking

Duration: 10 Days   |  

Poon Hill family trekking is one of the best and spectacular treks in Annapurna region. This trek is also known as Annapurna's balcony trek which fit for all age trekkers and adventure seekers. The Poon Hill family trekking has over the years been the bestseller among all our trekking packages. The breathtaking mountain scenery and the beautiful ethnic villages justify the popularity of this trek. The trek is easy, it has enough walking along streams and forests for those who are looking for a few days close to nature, yet it is not far away and involves no high climbing. You absolutely have no risk of altitude sickness on this trek. This trek can be done all through the year except during the monsoon.

The Poon Hill family trekking is also known as a short trek to Annapurna. The trek starts from the beautiful village called Modhi River, after an hour and half of drive from Pokhara. Crossing the suspension bridge over Modhi Khola River, we ascend through ethnic villages and farm terraces enjoying the views of Machhapuchare (Fishtail) peeking between the hills. On the second day we walk mostly through woods before we reach Ghorepani village. Next morning we make an early climb of one hour to the nearby Poon hill to watch the amazing sunrise and the spectacular view of the Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri and other famous mountains of the region.

The beautiful Ghorepani village is densely forested with rhododendron, the national flower of Nepal. Every spring it is tremendous scenery to watch these forests in bloom with the panorama of the high mountains on the skyline.

From Ghorepani town we descend for the beautiful Gurung (name of a community) village of Ghandruk on the lap of the Annapurna south. The village is known for its traditional houses, rich culture and the great landscapes. Walking down through the innumerable steps we make a loop at Birethanti and catch our vehicle for Pokhara at Nayapul .We trace back no part of the trail on this itinerary. On our whole trek, we use the mountain lodges called the tea houses for our meal and accommodation.
