Ghorepani poonhill trek is one of the most famous trekking areas in Nepal. To reach to Annapurna Region either you can fly or drive to Pokhara from Kathmandu. Pokhara is the gate way to Annapurna region. City of Pokhara offers many natural and attractive places to visit. Fewlake with the shadow of Machhapuchre(Fishtail) mountain, Begnas tal (lake). Mahendra Cave, Sharangkot for sunrise and sunset view and others place are the attraction of Pokhara. There are rarely a few places in the world with such a splendid variety of natural beauty as that of Annapurna region. It is a rare combination of long arrays of snow capped mountains, crystal clear lakes, turbulent rivers with deep gorges, Buddhist monasteries, home of famous Gorkha soldiers and other friendly ethnic groups, as well as hot springs and beautiful villages.
