Annapurna Loop to Poon Hill, Day 2 – The Friendly Path to GhorephaniPosted on
This day’s trek ended well before the sky started to darken, at a place called Ghorepani. This is one of the larger towns in the Annapurna Conservation Area, it being at a crossroads of different trekking routes, with the popular viewpoint of Poon Hill above it. We made our way up further steps – Bishnu having decided to pick a guesthouse close to the start of the walk up to Poon Hill – and, after a quick (and very cold) shower to wash away the day’s sweat, I stepped out onto the patio with my camera and a masala tea.
Annapurna Loop to Poon Hill, Day 1 – Endless Stairs to UlleriPosted on
The Poon Hill circuit is one of the more popular routes in Nepal. It’s the one my brother tried on his first visit to the country and was the natural first choice for the owner of Osho Vision Treks – Ishwor Bhandari – to recommend when I informed him that I was not especially fit nor experienced with trekking. Nayapul was busy with other groups making ready to depart and, after a quick breakfast there, Bishnu and I set about making tracks.
