Best Time for Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a year-round delight, offering stunning landscapes and cultural encounters. However, it's advisable to avoid the monsoon season (July to August) for the best trekking conditions. The journey kicks off from Nayapul, where you'll cross the airy suspension bridge over the Modi Khola river after a scenic one-hour cruise from Pokhara.

Trail Highlights

The trail unfolds as it leads north of the Mardi River Valley until reaching the pivotal junction point of Birethanti. This junction not only guides trekkers to the Annapurna sanctuary but also marks the beginning of the enchanting Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. As you ascend along the Bhurung Khola/stream, you'll encounter the charming village of Ghandruk, inhabited by Gurung, Magar, and Thakali communities.

Cultural Riches of Ghandruk

Ghandruk, with its rich cultural tapestry, is a highlight of the Ghorepani - Dhampus Trek. The village is home to the Gurungs, renowned Gurkha soldiers serving in armies worldwide. A visit to the Gurung culture museum in Ghandruk during the Ghandruk Hike provides a deep insight into the traditions and history of this vibrant community.
