Trip Overview

The region that we know of so well – the Annapurnas – is the birthplace of alpinism and home to some of the most famous mountain peaks on earth, so it’s a given that Annapurna 1 and its subsidiary peaks needn’t bow to any mountains, anywhere. Its needle like, gothically drawn skyline is the kind that inspires adventurers globally.

The Annapurna sunrise view trek is also popularly known as the ‘Ghorepani Poonhill’’ trek. It’s a treat early morning to view the stunning mountains from the master viewpoint in the entire region. The trip begins from Pokhara city and concludes at Ghandruk; this is an ideal trip for family & loved ones as its short & sweet with not much altitude to climb. It’s a roughly 45 minute’s drive from Pokhara to Nayapul where our real thrills of adventure begin. When our trekking from Nayapul begins, we soon view lovely natural landscapes of immense beauty all along the way up to Poonhill. The trail has some great  ups and downs on the way, & our hike goes through beautiful forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron and many lovely colorful villages like Ghorepani, Poonhill, Tadapani & Ghandruk. We get to view snowy mountain peaks which include two eight thousanders: Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m). This route is truly interesting & adventurous as we must climb up 3,000 steps in the village of Ulleri, a test for your physical abilities & energy levels. On reaching our final point-Poonhill, the views of sun rise creeping through the mountains leave you breathless & you never get tired of this natural experience, a gift from God. The maximum altitude of 3,210 meters makes the trip even more enjoyable due to less altitude levels. This Annapurna Sunrise Trek moves you emotionally. Despite the low altitude trekking, the scenery hereabouts is so much to relish. Travelers like students, families, solo or individual travelers, women and young trekkers will simply love this venture. The best season to trek in this region is from mid September to end of December and in spring it’s the first week of March through mid June.
