Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

2 Reviews

Poon Hill Trek is the right for those who don’t have much time for longer trek, or don’t think you are physically ready for hard and longer trekking? Then Poon Hill Trek is the perfect one for you.  Poon Hill Ghorepani trek offers easy walk in the first day of trek. Only on the day of the trip, you have some long steep uphill stone stair case to Ulleri Village from Hile but after walking about two hours from the beginning you will enter into biggest rhododendron forest. You may see different colors of rhododendron flowers if you are trekking in March to May. Once you reach to Upper Ghorepani Deurali you will observe beautiful matchless panoramic Mountain View. On the second night we stay at Ghorepani, at altitude of 2855 meters. Most trekkers rise before down and hike up to Poon Hill (3210m) for early morning pleasure trek. The spectacular panorama stretches from Dhaulagiri I (8167m), Tukche peak (6920m), Nilgiri (6940m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna I (8091m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Machhapuchhre (6997m) and the Lamjung Himal and Manaslu to Far East. 

The sun rise view from Poon Hill is marvelous which is said to be one of the best view point in Annapurna trekking and easily accessed from Pokhara, reached after days walk, not very hard regarding difficulty of Poon Hill Trek so this trek is well-liked by family trekkers. We start our trek  from Nayapul, 42km drive from Pokhara and the Ghorepani Nayapul trail is pleasurable walk for the first day, meaningful explore of Gurung and Magar culture and tradition and an interaction with the locals are life time and unique experience at Thikhedunga and at Sabeth villages. On the second day we hike up passing Ulleri village which is a bit demanding hike up that said to have 3300 stone stair cases but there are teahouses in every thirty minutes walk so we can stop for rest, taking photos and can even stop for drinks.

On third or fourth day of Poon Hill trek depending on your itinerary, we will stay at Ghandruk which is one the place of interest in this trek. We have walk around the beautiful Gurung village visiting Gurung culture museum, ACAP visitor’s center and enjoy the breath taking of Annapurna from gorgeous village of Ghandruk. Not just this, but also you will love staying in Pokhara too. Pokhara itself is blessed town with natural beauty offering the view of Annapurna Himalayan range even from your hotel rooftop; one can enjoy the reflection of mountain in Phewa Lake while boating. Hiking to the Peace Pagoda is a great experience and see the beautiful Pokhara and Annapurna range in back drop. In over all Staying this trek is outstanding that will make your trip just beautiful and lifetime experience.

We also offer 4 and 5 days short Ghorepanai Poon Hill Trek with transportation. Thank you.

    I have researched and booked the trek online via their website.Once I booked,Pradip contacted and emailed me all the details directly.Everything is arranged well and efficiently.The price is also very reasonable and worthwhile as it includes almost everything such as meals.My guide Garap Sangpo Lama is very nice and helpful. He is very experienced and during the trek I have learned a lot about the Nepal culture and people from him.I highly recommended him to anyone who is interested to do Poonhill or Annapurna Base Camp trek!:)

    I contacted Wilderness Excursion for my trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill before arriving in Nepal and it was Pradip; he prepared the trek I needed. He answered all my questions so quickly and kindly. During the trekking days, Pradip took care of me, choosing good lodges, paying attention to meals, chatting with me and respecting my silents when necessary.Pradip is a great professional and a very kind person. I really enjoyed my trekking and absolutely recomend Pradip’s services.
