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.

  • Is quarantine in Nepal in effect for arriving visitors?

    In response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. Please check the government travel pages and advisories of your home country and the official website of the Nepal Tourism board here.

  • What happens if someone gets altitude sickness, does the rest of the group continue on?

    It depends on the situation. Sometimes, altitude sickness can be treated and the trekker may wish to continue. If not, the rest of the group can continue on if they want and the sick person can descend.

  • 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 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.
