Day 2 of Annapurna 5-day trek to Poon Hill. This section's 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.
