This trek begins and ends near Few Tal (lake) in Pokhara. Climbing to the perfect vantage point at Poon Hill in the pre-dawn is a real eye-opener and camera enthusiast’s paradise. The immense snow capped Himalayan Mountains and the rising sun provide a kaleidoscope of colors and images that change minute by minute keeping your finger on the camera button. Don’t forget to breath! 

This relatively short 10-day Annapurna Panorama trek with 360° views of snowcapped mountains will literally stop you in your tracks. The trek follows an undulating trail passing through Gurung and Magar villages rich in culture and traditions, not forgetting their unique houses of stone and slate. Walking through the rhododendron forests and magnolia forests is in stark contrast to the heavenly reaching peaks. This trek is a spiritual journey among villages steeped in tradition and myths. Looking skyward certainly gives you a new perspective of just how insignificant we are in comparison to nature’s abundant beauty. As you wander along the trail you can step back in time and follow in the footsteps of the early traders who traversed these mountains on the Trans-Himalayan salt trade route, with donkeys and yak laden down with salt between Nepal and Tibet.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek follows a trail on the south side of the massive Annapurna Himal Range of mountains. This trek caters to all ages and is suitable for families, school and corporate groups. 

This region is also famous for being the home of the legendry Gurkha soldiers revered the world over for their strength and tenacity in battle. Gurkha soldiers are today still a major component of the British army. When you consider the rugged mountains they call home, you will understand why they are highly regarded and as hard as nails! At every turn be prepared to see something new, ranging from terraced farmland sculptured out of hillsides and unique wildlife and amazing fauna, such as Yak, mountain goats and birdlife.

What makes this trek different from the rest? It is the only trek where you can view three of the world’s highest mountains;the 7th highest - Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m); the 8th highest Mt. Manaslu (8163m)  and 10th highest Mt. Annapurna (8091m). Besides these giants, there are thirteen peaks over 7,000 metres, and sixteen more over 6,000 metres. Many of these can be seen from the incredible vantage point at Poon Hill (3210m). A true panoramic view unfolds right before your eyes! Once seen – never forgotten. These photos will take pride-of-place in your collection for years to come, but will never possess the same magic as you did standing in awe at the unimaginable beauty.

Highlights of the Annapurna Panorama Trek.

  • Panoramic mind-blowing views  of the enormous Annapurna Ranges.
  • Unobstructed sunrise and sunset views from Poon Hill (3210m)..
  • Trekking through dense rhododendron & magnolia forests (especially in March)
  • Sitting and relaxing in the therapeutic natural hot spring at Jhinu Danda –right beside the river.
  • Get a feel for the amazing culture & traditions of Ghandruk (2102m) – a Gurung village

Upon arrival at Kathmandu Tribhuvan International Airport you will be met by a Sherpa Expedition & Trekking representative, and taken to your hotel. After checking in at the hotel, you will be briefed on what to expect on your trek to Annapurna Panaroma.

Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.

We will drive around 1:25 hrs from Pokhara via attractive Lumle village perched on the mountainside and then on to Nayapul (1050m). The Poon Hill trek begins at Nayapul and after a 30-minute hike reaches Birethanti where you will be asked to your tourist permit at the checkpoint. We follow the Modi River with a stop at a teahouse along the way, and after a 5-6-hour trek reach the lush green village of Ulleri.

Our trek today starts with a 40 minutes hour fairly steep climb up to Magar village of Banthanti from where we are blessed with magical views of Mt. Machapuchare (6997m), Hiunchuli (6441m) and Annapurna South (7219m). After following the trail through a lush pink flowering rhododendron forest we cross a small bridge before reaching the village of Ghorepani where enormous peaks, such as Dhaulagiri, Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Annapurna loom in the background. A fantastic place to sit and take in the exquisite views.

Poon Hill is justifiable well known for offering unheralded views of the Annapurna Ranges – especially at sunrise and sunset. An early start will see us reach the Poon Hill viewpoint where we can watch the changing colors reflecting off the mountains, such as Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Annapurna II (7937m), Annapurna III (7855m), Annapurna IV (7525m), Annapurna South (729m), Nilgiri (6940m), Tukuche (6920m), Varaha Shikhar (7847m) & Lamjung Himal (6931m). After sending your camera into overdrive we will return to a well-deserved breakfast at Ghorepani, after which we head to Tadapani Village via the scenic trail passing through Deurali (meaning a ridge in Nepali) and teahouses until we reach Tadapani. Overnight stay at the teahouse.

Today’s 3-5 hour trek is relatively easy taking us through an oak and rhododendron forest. Wildflowers are noticeable along the trail, adding to the vivid beauty of this area. Once we reach the mainly Gurung village of Ghandruk we will be in awe as we view Annapurna South, Gangapurna, (7455m), Machapuchare, Annapurna III and Hiunchuli. Ghandruk is the 2nd largest Gurung village in Nepal with a population of 4748 people. It is rich in culture with a museum and Buddhist monastery. Most fascinating is its unique style of architecture with most houses having slate tiled roofs and stone walls. It is like stepping back in time! Overnight stay at the teahouse.

Today’s trek will take about 4 hours, but is fortunately mostly downhill before arriving at Jhinu Danda where we can sit in the therapeutic natural hot springs on the bank of the Modi Khola River. If you are brave enough you can plunge into the freezing waters – depending on conditions of course! Tonight you will sleep like a baby!

This is our final day on the trail and after leaving Jhinu Danda we follow an easily traversed trail alongside the Modi Khola River for about 4 to 5 hours before reaching Birethanti Village. We then continue to Nayapul before driving back to Pokhara. Today’s trek and drive is about 6 to 7 hours.

Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime!

Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport at least (3 hours before departure) for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!

The Annapurna Panorama Trek is a popular trekking route in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It offers stunning views of the Annapurna mountain range, including peaks like Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), and Hiunchuli. The trek usually starts from Nayapul and takes you through beautiful villages, terraced fields, rhododendron forests, and traditional Gurung settlements.

The duration of the Annapurna Panorama Trek can vary depending on your itinerary and fitness level. On average, it takes about 7-10 days to complete the trek. This includes hiking for 4-6 hours per day, with occasional rest days for acclimatization and exploration.

The Annapurna Panorama Trek is considered a moderate trek. While it does not involve any technical climbing, it does require a good level of fitness and stamina. The trail includes some steep ascents and descents, so it's important to be prepared and have prior trekking experience. Proper acclimatization and gradual ascent are essential to avoid altitude sickness.
