The tourist traffic has started to increase in Ghorepani and Poon Hill, the tourist places of Myagdi. With the improvement in the weather since last week, the number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting Poon Hill has started to increase.

Hoteliers have become excited after the tourist movement started in Ghorepani and Poon Hill, a tourist spot located in Annapurna rural municipality-6 of Myagdi. Domestic tourists who took advantage of the Dashain and Tihar holidays have started reaching Poon Hill to enjoy the natural beauty.

Now is also a good time for students to go out as schools and colleges are on holiday until Tihar. Hoteliers said that the number of domestic and foreign tourists visiting this area has started to increase with the improvement in the tourist weather, which was halted due to continuous rains.

Viren Pun, Chairman of the Ghorepani Toll Improvement Committee informed that the hoteliers are excited after the increase in the number of tourists in the Ghorepani and Poon Hill area, which is covered by the world-famous circular Annapurna footpath. A beautiful view of the Himalayas and the sunrise can be seen from Poon Hill on the circular Annapurna trail. Poon Hill is located at an altitude of 3,200 meters above sea level. A footpath has been constructed to reach Poon Hill from Ghorepani.

Meena Pun, president of the Ghorepani Hotel Management Committee, said that tourists arrival has increased since the beginning of October. Suren Gurung, a resident of Annapurna Rural Municipality-5, said that tourists come to Poon Hill to observe the snow range that appears in front of their eyes with the sunrise in the morning. Gurung informed that the tourists come back happy with the view of the sunrise rising from the side of the mountain spreading bright rays and seeing the snow peaks that wave from the east to the west.

More than 20 snow peaks in the mountain range of Manaslu, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri mountains, which are more than eight thousand meters high, can be closely observed from Poon Hill. "We have records that up to 350 foreign tourists entered Ghorepani every day with Dasai. Most of the tourists are returning from Ghandruk and Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) or coming from Pokhara to Ghorepani and going to Ghandruk or ABC", said Assistant Inspector of Police Santosh Bhusal.

In Ghorepani, there are 400 beds in 30 small hotels. The hotels and guest houses of Tatopani are packed with the number of domestic tourists who celebrate the Dashaintihar holiday.
