Before Tolka today’s camp place, there is a small tea/lunch spot called Pitam Deurali (2,134 meters) at the top of the hill, which is divided into trails for the Mardi Himal trek and the classic Annapurna base camp trek. Also known as Bhichok Deurali or just Deurali, Pitam Deurali is a small ridge-top tea/lunch spot with basic accommodation.

As you listen to the sound of the river, close your eyes and allow yourself to be at one with nature. Once you have completed your trek, you can feel your body becoming heavier as you let go and relax.

On the third day before Ghorepani (2874 meters), the night will be spent in Tadapani. It is called Tadhapani because the water source was once a considerable distance from the village. But they have figured it out now. Tadapani is the meeting point of several trails. To the north, there is a trail leading to Chhomrong through Chuile and Gurzung. Another trail leads to the Khopra danda Khair Lake trek towards the north. In addition, there is a Muldai View Trek that is connected to Tadapani.

On the day four hike to Ghorepani, the trails are wide and well-maintained. The hotel and lodges provide outstanding service, and you can taste local dishes such as wild mushroom soup, which is made from mushrooms collected from the forest by the locals. The day five early morning, visit the Poon Hill 30-minute hike up to the 3210M heights, Poon Hill is one of Nepal’s most popular viewing points. Most trekkers hike to Poon Hill from Ghorepani in the early morning in order to view the sunrise. The views of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri are spectacular and make the hour-long climb through a rhododendron forest well worth the effort. During the peak trekking seasons in Spring and Autumn, Poon Hill can be quite crowded. You can expect to share the views with several hundred other trekkers. There is even a coffee stand on top that serves both hot and cold beverages.

Annapurna Classic Poon Hill Round Trek is one of the most popular treks in Nepal. However, the trail is much quieter during the winter months. In winter, the Poon Hill trek offers a clear view of the Annapurna Himalayan ranges. Due to the clear skies more often than not, the views on the Classic Poon Hill Round Trek are equally captivating. The Himalayan views reach their climax at the foothills of the mighty Classic Poon Hill right at the beginning of the trek.

Fitness level required:

Classic Ghorepani Poonhill trails are one of the easiest trekking in the Annapurna Region, compared to the Annapurna Base Camp Trek and the Everest Base Camp Trek. There is no specific training required to do this classic trek, but you must be physically fit and capable of walking four to five hours per day.  The Poonhill trek would be the best choice if you are a first-timer and looking for an easy trail to explore the beauty of Annapurna.

Classic Poon Hill Trek by Anticlockwise:

While most trekkers on the Classic Poon Hill Trek start from Nayapul and hike clockwise, it is possible to start the trek in an anticlockwise direction. However, this is not a very common route and requires a bit more planning and preparation.

If you choose to start the Classic Poon Hill Trek in an anticlockwise direction, you would typically start in the town of Dhampus and hike through Landruk, Tolka, and Ghandruk, before continuing on to Tadapani, Ghorepani, and finally to Poon Hill. From Poon Hill, you can then descend back to Nayapul and end your trek.

Starting the trek in an anticlockwise direction can offer a unique perspective and allows trekkers to experience the stunning views of the mountains from a different angle. However, this route can be a bit more challenging than the clockwise route, as it involves a steeper ascent and longer hours of walking on the first few days.
