The most preferred and famous trek in the region is the Ghorepani-Poon Hill-Ghandruk trek. It begins at Nayapul which is about 44 kilometres away from Pokhara and goes through Ulleri, Ghorepani and Ghandruk via the uneven terrain. The mountainous trails are traversed by foot through the rhododendron forests and regions inhabited by the Gurangs and the Magars. As the trek progresses, one would come across the terraces used for cultivating rice and the enchanting waterfalls in the regions. The hilltop, at 3210 metres above sea level, is the best place to get a stunning view of the Himalayan Peaks. If only Poon hill is to be explored, one can be assured that this is an easy level of trekking in the region. The best time to go on a trek on the Poon Hill is between March and May and between September and November.
