Hike to Ghorepani Poon Hill

Description

Hike to Ghorepani Poon Hill

While planning your holiday schedules, if you run up on cramped time, then this is what the doctor prescribed for an absolute ‘stress buster’’ and a Himalayan experience that’s not only brief but also easy on the body with lower altitudes.

Nayapul to Ghorepani Poon Hill

We begin our odyssey from Nayapul after a several hours drive from Pokhara. Hike to Ghorepani Poon hill goes across lovely rhododendron forest and charming traditional villages vibrant with life inhabited by the families of brave Gurkha warriors – the Gurung ethnic community who are the major residents of rural Pokhara; this is a great chance to experience mountain culture and traditions upfront as we hike through the typical rural countryside of Nepal.
