Your Guide

My name is Guru Ngima Sherpa, a professional (government registered) trekking guide from the Solukhumbu region of Nepal.

I have been guiding for the last nine years around Nepal. I started my career as a Sherpa, and then after two years of experience as a Sherpa I started working as a guide.

I worked for trekking companies for almost 6 years, and after working with many clients from different countries, now I work as a independent biking and trekking guide. So for the last 2 years, now, I am working on my own.

I specialize in biking tours to Langtang, Annapurna circuit, Lower Everest, Upper and Lower Mustang, and Kathmandu valley. I'd be happy to guide you on any of these routes and look forward to your company!

Overview

The Ghorepani / Poon Hill trek is said to be one of the best trek among short trek in Nepal. This week long lodge trek in the Annapurna Foothills to the viewpoint on Poon Hill offers all the best of trekking in Nepal including accommodation in comfortable family run trekkers’ lodges along the way.

Enjoy trekking in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs people, renowned for their strength and as pillars of both the Indian and British armies. A fascinating museum of Traditional Nepalese Life awaits you in Ghandruk, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the picturesque fluted peak of Machapuchare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline.

At the climax of this trek you will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain escapes on Earth. Walking up slowly through rhododendron forests, the majestic Annapurna range reveals itself as you emerge from the forest into Ghorepani.

A short hike from Ghorepani will bring you to Poon Hill (3210m), Giants, Dhaulagiri 8,167m and Annapurna 8,091m along with a maze of other peaks slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes, a rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature and beautiful landscapes.
