Poon Hill TrekThis area, north of Pokhara, called "Ghorepani" offers some of the most dramatic close-up views of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world. The abrupt variation in altitude found here is astonishing. From the Pokhara airstrip (850m) the summit of Machhapuchare (6997m) is less than 30 km. This area is home to the Magars and Gurungs (backbone of the famous Gorkha regiments). The trek passes through rhododendron and mixed forest alive with ferns and birds, through spectacular villages of the Gurkha soldiers with their spectacular Himalayan back drops leads to Ghorapani 2834 m. The following morning visits Poon Hill at (3210 m), a vantage point to view the Dhaulagiri(8167 m) and the Annapurna massif. The trek makes a small circuit and visits Tadapani(2450 m), Ghandruk and finally ends in Pokhara.
