If you love trekking than you should not miss this one. It’s a short trek and could be done in as less as 2 days from Pokhara, Nepal. But if you really want to enjoy your time than 3 or 4 days would be nice. Or if you want to explore more than you can do a short round trek from Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani to Tadapani to Ghandruk and to Pokhara in just 4-5 days.

The highlight of the trip: Poonhill, the view was beautiful after the clouds cleared, a journey worth every step! Loved that you could still buy hot tea up at Poon hill and I have to say that it’s the best tea drank in the freezing weather! Do cover yourself with more layers if you intend to ascend early. The whole trek was awesome! Highly recommended.

Certainly the topmost trek to be done from Pokhara. The highlight of the trek it ‘Poon hill’ which a Himalayan vantage-point and you hike there on the 3rd day early in the morning to watch the sunrise over the mountains. It’s is just so breathtaking and majestic. I would recommend this trek to anyone.
