Next morning an early climb to the nearby Poon hill will be done for the majestic view of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Nilgiri and other various famous mountains of that region.

Ghorepani being densely forested with rhododendron and surrounded by mountains provides a breathtaking view of scenic beauty. During spring, it is densely surrounded by the blossoming colorful Rhododendron which gives a majestic panoramic view of the land.
