Annapurna Skyline Trek (Ghorepani and Poon hill trek )
The Annapurna Skyline trek is also popularly known as the Ghorepani and Poon hill trek. The trip begins with a day of exploring the historic temples and landmarks that dot the bustling capital. A day later, take a scenic flight to Pokhara and start the trek the same day. The Annapurna Skyline trek passes through several bucolic Gurung villages. The Gurungs are one of sixty ethnic groups in Nepal and the predominant race recruited in the famous Gurkha regiment of the British and Indian army. On the Ghorepani trek, you will climb up and down the infamous “Gurung staircases along” the Modi Khola river. Past Ghandruk, hike along the ridge to Ghorepani.
The Ghorepani trek begins in temperate terraced rice fields, gradually ascending to old growth and bamboo forests. You will make an early morning ascent up Pun Hill with the opportunity to watch the sun rise over the Annapurna range. On your descent you will pass through rhododendron forests that may just be in bloom!
