Today, very early in the morning, we start an hour hiking to Poon Hill at elevation of 3.210 meters, a brilliant spectacle; this vantage point provides a superb view of sunrise over the high Himalayas, including the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Machhapuchhre. In Poon Hill we will spend about 1 hour, we then return to Ghorepani. We take a hot breakfast at the hotel and continue our trek to Tadapani (2.600 meters).

Thankfully the rain had stopped by the time we got up this morning and we had clear skies to begin our walk to Chomrong. At this point the trail splits in two; north-east to Chomrong to join the Annapurna Base Camp trail and south-east to Ghandruk to finish the Ghandruk Ghorepani circuit trek. Heading north-east, we said goodbye to other hikers we had met along the way and left Tadapani behind us The path dropped steeply down the mountain, through a forested area to a tiny farming village, Chuile. Walking by, we watched an old local man shave kernels of corn from the cob and a younger guy try in vain to gather his sheep and goats together.
The trail out of Chhomrong descends via 2500 stone steps and crosses the Chhomrong Khola on a swaying suspension bridge takes around 4-5 hours. It is an uphill climb to Sinuwa. Next, we pass through a beautiful forest to Kuldihar followed by an easy downhill walk to Bamboo. Overnight in Bamboo.
As altitude continues to rises we start walking quite slower than usual so we stay at Deaurali which takes around 4-5 hours with all the way through forests. There is more probability of seeing the snow from today.
As we approach closer and closer to the mountains it starts getting colder. On the way to ABC we first reach MBC which takes around 3 hours and further 2hours to ABC. We will be surrounded by mountains from all sides and the density of the vegetations and plants will be thinner and thinner. It is the best and one of the nearest view point of the mountains(Mt.
