This trek lead you to the west of Pokhara giving fine views of the Annapurna mountains and crossing through beautiful Gurung villages. Near Ghorepani is Poon hill, one of the finest look-out points in the region. This trek does not reach any great altitudes, does not entail any particularly long walking days and there is always plenty to see. Ghandruk is a village where we visit the Annapurna Conservation Area Project.
Ghorepani lies on a major trail linking several other villages as well as the Annapurna Base Camp. From the South-East direction, it can normally be reached by foot from the village of Birethanti in about 10 hours depending on the trekker. However, many trekkers prefer to overnight at one of the lower villages on their way to Ghorepani, covering the distance over two days owing to the steepness of the trail, the increase in altitude and the beauty of the natural surroundings. From the North-West direction, Ghorepani can be reached in about 8 – 10 hours starting from Tatopani. This trail passes through the villages of Shikha, Dana and Chitre.
