As the name suggests, the Annapurna View Trek takes place amidst the Annapurna Mountain Range in Central Nepal. Annapurna Range is one of the most majestic and mesmerizing mountain ranges in the world. Mount Annapurna itself is the 10th highest peak and almost goes up to the height of 8,091 meters above sea level. The beautiful eye-catching mountain scenery makes the experience absolutely out of this world. It is totally a trekker’s paradise.
Moreover, Nepal is famed for the largest concentration of altitude variations in the world as it changes from a mere 60 meters above sea level to a whopping 8,848 meters above sea level. This contributes to the huge variation in the climatic conditions ranging from arctic cold to tropical hot.
The Annapurna View Point Trek is often referred to as the Ghorepani/ Poonhill trek or the Sunrise Trek. It is called so because you have to walk for about 45 minutes, early in the morning, from Ghorepani to get the best view of the sun rising over the Annapurna Range. This Annapurna View Trek is short but considered as one of the lofty Mountain Viewpoint in the world and one of the most amazing routes in the Himalayan Region. Furthermore, this trek is the best for a beginner to get a grip on the scene.
