“Sky is not the Limit”!! The panoramic view of the Himalayas captivates visitors, offering a true glimpse of heavenly beauty that transcends dreamlands. Himalayan adventures in Nepal, like our Ghorepani – Poonhill Trek, fill hearts with radiance and delight, overpowering stress and negative desires.
This trek, although not leading to the base camp of the world’s highest peaks, provides an unforgettable experience in the Annapurna region. It offers awe-inspiring sunrise views over the Himalayas, including Annapurna I, Machhapuchhre, Hiunchuli, and Dhaulagiri, the 7th highest mountain.
The journey begins in Pokhara, a beautiful city of lakes, with historical and cultural landmarks. Trekking starts from Nayapul, leading to Tikhedhunga and ascending to the Gurung village of Ghorepani. Trekking on ascending trails, the final destination at Poonhill (3,120m) offers a heavenly experience, surrounded by snowcapped mountains.
Poonhill’s top may seem unremarkable at first, but the breathtaking views make it a heavenly reality. The entire expedition is remarkable, passing through enchanting Rhododendron forests, vibrant village communities, and a peaceful atmosphere within the Himalayas. If you seek peace, adventure, and a connection with nature, Poonhill is an unparalleled destination.
