The first part of your journey is a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. The drive will provide you with stunning views of villages, hills, and rivers, as well as an insight into the people’ way of life. After arriving in Pokhara, you will be driven to Nayapul, where your trip will begin. As you ascend and descend flagstone steps, you will pass through stunning vistas, little villages, and rhododendron forests.

Poon Hill, which is deservedly famous for its spectacular sunrise vista, is only a short stroll from Ghorepani.

The trek’s highest point, Poon Hill (3210 meters), offers a breathtaking dawn perspective of the high Himalayas. Making it a must-do for all nature enthusiasts.

Snow-capped mountains such as Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna III (7555m), Annapurna IV (7525m). Including Annapurna South (7219m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Machhapuchhre (6993m), Himchuli (6441m), and others may be seen from Poon Hill.

After that, you’ll head to Tadapani for the night. The following day, we trek through Ghandruk Village, a gorgeous typical Gurung village with its own culture, customs, and lifestyle. On this excursion, you will get the opportunity to connect with the Gurung people and learn about their lives. Before descending down to Dhampus via Pothana, the journey will take you to the Gurung village of Landruk. Throughout the Annapurna Panorama Trek, you will be in a relaxing environment. Where you may relax while taking in the beautiful views and birds chattering.

Poon Hill Hike

The trip to the picturesque Poon hill is one of the highlights of this trek. Early mornings will be spent witnessing the spectacular sunrise in a serene setting. That will excite your soul and leave you breathless. The Annapurna (I-IV), Annapurna South, Lamjung, and Dhaulagiri are only a handful of the mountains in this range. You will feel at home as you stand in the culturally rich Ghandruk hamlet. Surrounded by the warm welcome of the ethnic Gurung people. To begin our vacation, we go to Kathmandu, Nepal, and take a tour of the city’s most important attractions.

Similarly, on the Annapurna Panorama Trek we will visit the beauty and culture at UNESCO world heritage sites such as Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambunath and Bouddhanath Stupas, and Pashupatinath Temple. Until we arrive in Pokhara later and begin our trekking adventure.
