HIGHLIGHTS
  • The terraced farmland above Pokhara.
  • Visiting the sanctuary of Annapurna with panoramic views of 10 peaks over 6000m.
  • Views of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna ranges and Kaligandaki from Poonhill.
The Ghorepani Poon-Hill trek is a renowned eco-trekking trail in Nepal for experiencing the Himalayas, People, Nature, Culture, valleys, terraces, forests, floras and faunas. It is perfect for honeymoon couples, families, students, and beginner adventurers with limited time available.

Poonhill (3210m) is one of Nepal's best sunrise viewpoints from where you can admire the great Annapurna Range and Dhaulagiri Range. From Poonhill you will get to see Mt. Dhaulagiri, the 7th Highest mountain in the world at 8167 m and Mt. Annapurna 1, the 10th Highest mountain in the world at 8,091 m. Other great peaks on display are Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fishtail), Annapurna south, Himchuli, Nilgiri, and Tukuche Peak.

As we are not climbing in very high altitudes this trek provides neither too hot nor too cold temperatures and as a result you will be able to complete this physical challenge in rather comfortable surroundings.

According to the different seasons, plants, trees and flowers await you with lush timberland and beautiful horizons. Especially during the spring season the Rhododendron, Nepal's National flower, covers the mountainside different colors and aromas.

We are looking forward to showing you Nepal and Poonhill, for a great small adventure, getting you close to the Himalayan mountain peaks.

“Nous sommes partis en couple la fin du mois d'avril 2017 et avons effectu le circuit Ghorepani-Poonhill. Nous n'avions jamais fait de trek de notre vie et nous avons ador cette premire exprience. Les paysages taient magnifiques, encore mieux que ce que l'on avait imagin.

Au final, nous n'avions pas beaucoup de temps (8 jours) mais nous aimerions revenir au Npal pour faire un trek plus long car le pays, ses habitants et ses montagnes nous sont rests sous la peau. Merci Nepal Eco Adventure, Arun et Lakpa pour cette exprience inoubliable.”

“Where do I start! What a fantastic time we had. Given we had only a week in Nepal, we decided upon on the Poon Hill trek which we customised during the trek. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our guide Arun was absolutely fantastic, a wonderful and kind person who was very knowledgeable on the area and who was very open to adapting the route. Although the trek was reasonably short it was very rewarding with beautiful views at all times and incredible landscapes and on top of that the weather was excellent. The home stays were comfortable and we especially loved the place in Ghorepani. With the customisation we were walking between 15-20km per day which was great for us. We will most definitely be returning to do the ABC circuit next time and without a doubt we will be doing it with Nepal Eco.”

“A lot of steps and climbing the first 2 days, 3rd day is the best and than again 2 days of descent. First day is not that interesting and can be skipped with jeep transport, as well as the last day. Go when rododendrons are blooming! Very beautifull! I did the trek with my 8 year old daughter and she was even more energetic as myself.”

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • How much should my backpack weigh?

    A properly packed backpack (not including your day pack) should ideally not weigh more than 13 kg. It is also important to note that if you are taking a flight to the start of your trek, many smaller aircraft have weight restrictions. For example, if you are flying from Kathmandu to Lukla, you are only allowed 10kg of checked luggage, and 5 kg of hand baggage. Thus, in case of a small flight, you should ideally pack a 10 kg backpack for checked luggage, and then add 5 kg in your hand baggage. You can then re-shuffel the weigt once you start your trek at the trailhead.  

  • Do I need a porter?

    The decision to hire a porter is up to you and usually based on your fitness level and/or budget. One porter can be shared between two people and can carry up to 25 kg. Many trekkers hire a porter to have a more comfortable trek.

  • Do I require a porter for carrying water?

    On most popular treks you can expect plenty of places where you can refill your water bottle, meaning you don’t need to carry a huge water supply with you. Bring an extra bottle of water if you are concerned. If you already have a porter, you can ask him/her to carry water as long as it is within the weight limit. Another option is to carry water purification tablets or LifeStraw, both of which can be found in Kathmandu.

  • When should I arrive in Kathmandu before the tour?

    We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the start day of the trek because the tour operators usually require one working day to arrange trekking permits. Arrive earlier if you want to explore Kathmandu on your own or acclimate to any time differences.
