HIGHLIGHTS
  • Sunrise from Poon Hill
  • Himalayan views
  • Ghandruk Village
  • Gurung culture and lifestyle
Starting and finishing in Nayapul, we loop around Ghorepani and Ghandruk, staying in local teahouses and climbing to the top of Poon Hill for the most magnificent views of the Annapurna mountain range.

The trek does include some difficult challenges, on the way to Ghorepani, we climb a staircase consisting of 3300 steps and there are many rocky, uphill tracks. All of this is worth the effort when you are able to feast your eyes on beautiful mountains; Annapurna South, Barasikha, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, Machapuchru (also know as Fishtail mountain), Dhaulagiri mountain range and Tukuche Peak are all there for you viewing pleasure. We follow the River Bhurungdi east past low land rice fields and thick jungles where you will see monkeys playing and many species of birds resting in the trees. We then leave the river and ascend to higher ground passing traditional villages giving you the chance to get to know the Nepali people and taste the local delicacies.

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?

    There are no quarantine requirements in Nepal for arriving visitors at the moment.

  • 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.
