Overview

Our Annapurna sunrise trek offers stunning mountain views from the master viewpoint. The region that we know of so well – the Annapurnas – is the birthplace of alpinism. Annapurna region is home to some of the most famous mountain peaks on the earth. Hence, it’s a given that Annapurna 1 and it is subsidiary peaks needn’t bow to any mountains, anywhere. Its needle-like, gothically drawn skyline is the kind that inspires adventurers globally.

The Annapurna sunrise trek is also popularly known as the ‘Ghorepani Poonhill’’ trek. It’s a treat early morning to view the stunning mountains from the master viewpoint of the entire region. The trip begins from Pokhara city and concludes at Poon Hill; this is an ideal trip for family & loved ones as it is short & sweet with not much altitude to climb. It’s a roughly 45-minute drive from Pokhara to Nayapul where our real thrills of adventure begin.

Summary of tour itinerary

Our Annapurna sunrise trekking from Nayapul begins, we soon view lovely natural landscapes of immense beauty all along the way up to Poonhill. The trail has some great ups and downs on the way. Our hike goes through beautiful forests of oak, bamboo and rhododendron and many lovely colorful villages like Ulleri, Ghorepani and Poonhill. We get to view snowy mountain peaks which include two eight thousanders: Mt. Annapurna (8,091 m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m).

Annapurna Sunrise Trek route is truly interesting & adventurous as we must climb up 3,000 steps in the village of Ulleri. It is a test of your physical abilities & energy levels. On reaching our final point-Poonhill, the views of sunrise creeping through the mountains leave you breathless & you never get tired of this natural experience, a gift from God. The maximum altitude of 3,210 meters makes the trip even more enjoyable due to the lower altitude levels.
