The Ghorepani /Poonhill trek is also referred as the Annapurna Sunrise view trek. Starting from Pokhara, this trek takes you to some of the best Himalayan locations in the Annapurna region. This is a short but one of the most fascinating trek in the Himalayan region. This trek is regarded best for beginners as the trails are well defined and the walking is not much demanding.

The Trek starts from Pokhara and can be ended at Pokhara or Beni to Drive to Kathmandu.
