After a 1.5-hour drive from Pokhara, we will reach Nayapul which is the starting point of our journey after checking and taking the necessary permits then our trek begins. Our staying point is Ulleri so the hike will be about 4-5 hours on the day. During the day we will witness rivers, diverse ethnic groups, unique cultures, traditions, and so on. After reaching Ulleri Village (2070m) we will stay overnight there and make ourselves refreshed and excited for the next hiking day.

On this day too, we will hike for about 4-5 hours and our stay on this day will be at Ghorepani.

      This day will be the most exciting and memorable because you will wake up around 4:30 A M and start your hike about 1.5 hr to the Poonhill Peak (3210M) to experience the best sunrise view and captivate the eye-catching panoramic view of the surrounding big mountains in front of you.
