Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

This trek known, also as the small Annapurna Circuit, is a very popular one in Nepal. The highest point of this trek (3200 mtrs) and for many the highlight is an early morning pilgrimage to Poon Hill for a spectacular sunrise over the Himalayas, where the mountains stretch as far as the eye can see North towards Tibet West towards the Dhaulagiri Himal and East with superb views of the Annapurna Himal. Not a difficult trek, but it helps if you have a reasonable degree of fitness. This trek is considered to be the best introduction to trekking with some spectacular views.
