HIGHLIGHTS
  • Trek to Poon Hill. Experience amazing scenery

  • Enjoy the beauty of the majestic Himalayas
Embark on the Poon Hill trek, one of the easiest treks in the country and suitable for all ages looking to dive into natural tranquility. Poon Hill, popularly known as the Photographer's Paradise and situated at 3200 meters above sea level, overlooks the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna ranges. This trek is designed for those who are looking for a quick trip and wish to take full advantage of their visit.

The trek starts from Pokhara, a city 200 km West of Kathmandu. On the way to Poon Hill, you will witness perennial rivers, that originate from the mountains themselves and forests that are inhabited by several species of birds and animals. The phenomenal view of sunrise from Poon Hill is one of the main highlights of this trek, with the early morning's sunlight hitting the snowy peaks and creating an amazing photo opportunity.

The trail is also filled with several settlements of indigenous Magar and Gurung communities that will provide you with food and lodging along the way. Get the opportunity to observe the local culture at Ulleri, Ghorepani and Ghanrduk.

Great trek
“This hike was amazing. Is was my first hike ever so the last few days were a bit tough but still not as tough as I thought it would be. We had amazing views which i really enjoyed in the first few days but is was very rainy and cloudy in the last few days due to the monsoon season. I enjoyed passing the villages with kind locals and seeing so many animals anywhere. With good A/B or B shoes and magnesium powder you will be fine. You can buy water anywere but its mostly bottled. Great hike which I would love to do again in another season. I recommend this hike to anyone who only has a few days or for beginners.”

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 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.

     

  • 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.
