The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is one of the best short treks in Nepal and offers spectacular views of the Himalaya’s Annapurna Range. The eight-day guided tour takes you from the capital of Kathmandu to the Lake City of Pokhara to Poon Hill.

The four-day trek passes through Gurung villages and orchid forests to Poon Hill, the best viewpoint to Machhapuchhre, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. Revel in the glistening snow-capped peaks as the first rays of sunrise hit the Himalayan Range.

Start your trip from Kathmandu and make your way to the picturesque city of Pokhara. Your actual trek begins after a drive to Nayapool as you make your way to Ghorepani through Ulleri. You will pass lush rhododendron forests and swift-flowing waterfalls as you ascend and descend through numerous valleys.

Poon Hill is just an hour uphill from Ghorepani. Before the break of dawn, trek to Poon Hill, an hour uphill from Ghorepani, dor spectacular views. On your way back, pass Ghandruk for a glimpse of the local Gurung culture, capping off a great trip to the Himalayas.

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.
