Overview

Ghorepani and Poonhill hot spring trek is comparatively an easy trek that winds around Gurung villages and dense Rhododendron forest. The Himalayas in their best form are viewed from this trekking trail. The maximum height we reach in this trek is 3210m. Poonhill hot spring trek route begins at Naya pool which is about one hour drive from Pokhara. During this trekking trail, you will pass through a beautiful Gurung village, outstanding landscape, and a variety of flora and fauna. You will overview the grand south Annapurna from Ulleri village. Passing through Ghorepani village you bump into beautiful orchids, massive Himalayan bamboo, and dense Rhododendron forest.

Poonhill hot spring trek is a relatively easy walk meandering through villages and rhododendron forests. This invigorating trek reveals some of the best views of the Himalayas and is considered by many as the best viewpoint in the Annapurna region. Reaching a maximum altitude of 3210m, the completion of this trek will be comfortable for everybody with their physical fitness. The trek begins from Nayapool village which can be reached after a short drive from Pokhara. Walking towards Bhurungdi Khola you will cross some villages with their mixed cultures, lifestyle, and traditions.

While you will have a chance to see massive South Annapurna (7119m) from Ulleri village, traveling along to Ghorepani, and marvel at colorful orchids, Rhododendron forest, and Himalayan bamboo. Viewing from Poon Hill (3210m) is a reward in itself. You will not imagine the magnificence of the sunrise that you will witness from here, which illuminates the peaks of the entire range, leaving you spellbound. The added presence of rice terraces makes it a photographer's paradise. A walk downhill will bring you to Ghinudanda via Tadapani, Ghandrukafter reaching Jhinudanda (1750m), relax at natural hot spring.
