Annapurna Panorama Trek, also known as Ghandruk Poonhill Trek is an easy and colorful short trek into the Annapurna region. Annapurna Panorama Trek features walking through lush rhododendron forests on flagstone steps with the never-ending view of the Annapurna massif and Machhapuchhre (6993m). The trek also features picturesque Gurung villages sitting beautifully in the lap of the Annapurna massif allowing the trekkers to look into the Gurung culture, tradition, and lifestyle.
Annapurna Panorama Trek starts with a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara. A comfortable drive from Pokhara to Tikhedhunga via several small villages gives you a glimpse of life in the hills. The trek takes you to the village of Ghorepani from where you head to the ultimate destination of this trek, Poonhill. Poonhill hosts a stunning view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri massifs along with Machhapuchhre (6993m) made even more enticing with the rays of the rising sun touching the peaks. Later, the trek reaches the largest Gurung village in the Annapurna region, Ghandruk. You will enjoy walking with remarkable mountain scenery through delightful villages inhabited by the Gurung and Magar ethnics and through dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical gorges, all set below the Annapurna massif and Machhapuchhre (6993m) dominating the skyline.
