Annapurna Panorama trek is a combination of varieties and relatively easy walk meandering through villages and rhododendron forests. This is one of the most scenic teahouse treks in the Annapurna region. This trek showcases some of the best views of Annapurna and neighboring Himalayas especially from the Poon Hill. The added presence of rice terraces completes the picture making Poon Hill a photographer’s paradise. The real walking begins from Nayapul, we then trek to the beautiful Gurung village of Ghandruk and enjoy the ethnic hospitality along with the cultural magnificence of Gurung Museum.

This itinerary is designed for the trekkers who want a bit longer than Poonhill and like to explore more villages especially with their family and kids in the rural mountainside with up-close Himalayan views.
