Annapurna 5-day trek to Poon Hill. Day 2: 10.4km, 1400m up. Todays destination is Ghorepani. 10.4km, about 6hrs of which effectively 3,5hrs walking. Probably the 2nd day is the toughest, because you have to climb from 1485m to 2879; over 1400m. Most climbing happens at the start on steep stairs. Uleri is at 2020m altitude, and this is just 550m the first 1.9km. After Uleri the terrain evens out, a bit, while you're still slowly climbing. Towards Ghorepani you find yourself entering the Rhododendron forests.
