Ghorepani Poonhill

15 Day/s Lodge Trek in Nepal

Ghorepani Trek starts from Pokhara valley and takes you through picturesque mountain villages of the Gurungs (The Gurungs form the backbone of the famous Gorkha regiments) community passing through forests of spectacular Rhododendrons alive with an amazing variety of birds and flowers. It is probably the best short trek in Nepal, which offers you a dramatic close up view of Annapurna I (8,091m), Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Machhapuchhare-the Fish-Tail Mountain (6,997m) in their full glory.

This trekking trial never ascends to really high altitude, so it is best suited for the beginners and families including children as well.
During this trip two full days are spent in Kathmandu visiting two major cities of the valley. At the end of the trip we head to Royal Chitwan National Park reputed to be the best managed wildlife park in Asia. Elephant back safari, canoe ride and jungle walk in search of the One horned rhinoceros, leopards, deer, crocodiles and birds is an experience of a lifetime. The only complaint we get on this trip is that it ended too soon.
