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.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
