Day 2 Follow the path for breathtaking views of Machapuchare mountain (6997m), Hiunchuli peak (6441m), and the grand Annapurna (7219m) south on the way. Follow the quite easy trail, passing forest and rhododendron trees on the way to Ghorepani. Then, stay overnight at aguest house. Day 3 Take a one hour early morning hike to Poon Hill (3232m) which offers you the sunrise view over Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m), Tukuche Peak (6920m.), Nilgiri (6940m), Varaha Shikhar (7847m), Mt.

Then, stay overnight at a guesthouse. Day 4 Today, follow a trail which descends down through forests to Ghandruk for easy trekking and a gentle descent all the way through rhododendron, oak and other kinds of dense forests. Then, enjoy Ghandruk, a big Gurung village and the home to many Gorkha soldiers as well as one of the more popular destinations for trekkers because of its beautiful mountain views.

Short trek which requires an effort, without however exhausting itself, effort rewarded by the access to magnificent landscapes, not only to Poon Hil; the stages allow you to see the life of mountain villages and to share experiences. I regret not having done this kind of hike before!
