Annapurna Sunrise Trek

April 5, 2017

With the view of enormous mountains being glittered by the light of rising sun in the early morning, Annapurna sunrise view trek, also known as Ghorepani Poonhill trek, is renowned as one of the best viewpoint all around the country. Starting from Pokhara city and ending at Ghandruk, this trek is of nine days. We will take about 45 minutes drive from Pokhara to Nayapul then our real trekking begins. After you start trekking from Nayapul, you start enjoying the natural beauties all along the way up to Poonhill. Going ups and downs on the way, the trail goes through beautiful forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron and many beautiful villages like Ghorepani, Poonhill, Tadapani, Ghandruk. You can witness many snowy mountain peaks including two eight thousanders: Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m). This route is found to be more adventurous as you have to climb up 3,000 steps in Ulleri which will help to test yourself and your stamina. After you reach our final point-Poonhill, the best view of sun rising just above the snowy mountains will surely make you stand still and keep watching until the sun leaves the mountains. With maximum altitude of 3,210 meters, it won’t be a difficult task to trek up to Poonhill and enjoy such a heart touching view. In spite of being low altitude trekking, this route offers you numerous of scenic views. So, this route can be one of the best to enjoy yourself out of your busy schedules for all travelers like students, families, solo or individual travelers, women and young trekkers. The best season to mix up with the real beauty of this route for trekking is from the mid of September to end of December and first week of March to mid of June. For more details click here.
