After breakfast, we will ascend towards Ghorepani village. The name Ghorepani’s literal Nepali meaning is ‘horse-water’ because ghorepani was a popular campsite for traders. Ghorepani is a small place but it is interesting and exciting with small shops and stalls for selling local products and crafeets. The town is composed of two sediments: upper village and lower village. Ghorepani provides panoramic views of natural landscapes. Overnight in Ghorepani.
We will wake up early to view morning sunrise from viewpoint known as Poon Hill (3210m/10,531feet). Poon Hill is the most popular destination of trekking.

From TadaPani, we make a steep descent through the dense and dark forest. This part of the trek will be through a thick forest of old rhododendron trees. When the rhododendron trees are in bloom, these forests actually turn into gardens of dazzlingly beautiful flowers, mostly red, when seen from the air or from far. By Afternoon, depending upon the season of travel, we will be pleasantly surprised by the sight of some cherry blossoms in bloom on the slopes on the other side of the ravine. After trekking some more minutes, we enter the village of Ghandruk, a slope settlement with stone houses mostly inhabited by the Gurung people. Along with enjoying the stunningly close-up towering views of Fishtail, Annapurna South, and Himchuli mountains, we also acquaint ourselves with the simple but rich cultural traditions of the Gurung people at the Gurung Museum in Ghandruk.
We will drive back to pokhara on this day after trekking down from Ghandruk. The trekking trail is spectacular and phenomenal. The drive is good but bumpy at some places and it provides natural scenery all along the way. We will stay overnight at Pokhara.
