http://www.augenbick-film.dk Sunrise on Poon Hill - 10.12.2009 - Nepal (HD) You can see Nilgiri, Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Hinchuli and Machapuchhre. Poon Hill is just 45 minutes above Ghorepani which can be accessed trough Annnapurna Base Camp (ABC) trekking, Anapurna Circuit treking and jomson treck. It's a superior short treck in the himalayas! From Wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ghorepani Ghorepani is a village in Myagdi District in the Dhawalagiri Zone of northern-central Nepal. It lies 17 kilometres from the district capital of Baglung at an elevation of approximately 2874m (9429ft). The village lies within the Annapurna Conservation Area (ACA) and contains a number of "guest houses" that provide lodging and meals to mountain trekkers, many of whom spend the night before a pre-dawn trek to the top of nearby Poon Hill (3210m/10531ft) to watch the sunrise. The place used to be a rest stop where ancient traders found water (pani in Nepali) for their horses (ghora in Nepali) thus leading to the nomenclature Ghorepani. Ghorepani lies on a major trail linking several other villages as well as the Annapurna Base Camp. From the South-East direction, it can normally be reached by foot from the village of Birethanti in about 10 hours depending on the trekker. However, many trekkers prefer to overnight at one of the lower villages on their way to Ghorepani, covering the distance over two days owing to the steepness of the trail, the increase in altitude and the beauty of the natural surroundings. From the North-West direction, Ghorepani can be reached in about 8 - 10 hours starting from Tatopani. This trail passes through the villages of Shikha, Dana and Chitre. Filmed by Daniel Weissensteiner
