HIGHLIGHTS
  • Panoramic View from Poon Hill (3210 meters).
  • Explore Gurung community and village in Ghandruk.
  • Beautiful Dhaulagiri & Annapurna Range View.
The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is a 4 – 5 days hike in the Annapurna mountain range in Nepal. It takes a moderate level of fitness to complete, and the max elevation is 3,210 meters (so there’s no real risk of altitude sickness).

The highlight is reaching Poonhill at 3,210 meters giving you a 360-degree panoramic view of the Annapurna mountain range, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre and other majestic mountains. We will hike up poonhill early morning and see a fantastic sunrise over the Himalayan mountain range.

The itinerary travels many villages and settlements of different ethnic and cultural groups (primarily Gurung, Tamang, Chhetri and Tibetan), offering the possibility of authentic discovery of traditional Nepal. This short trek will therefore not only provide you with a great trekking trail, but also a lot of cultural inputs.

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek can be done al year round, but in the thick of winter, it will be quite cold for the trail. The best seasons are March to May and October to November.

Should you have any doubt to your physical fitness, we recommend you to employ the services of 1 porter who can carry up to 30 kgs. We are looking forward to providing you with a fantastic trip in Nepal.

Great first step into the Anapurna region

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek with Outshine Adventures
“Excellent experience! Very good for the first trek in the Himalayas, I would definitely recommend. Amazing views, local life, lots of stairs... ;) But you don't need to be super fit to do this trek. Everything worked like a charm on behalf of the tour company. Really nice and welcoming staff, both in the office and the guide and porters on the trek. Thank you all!!”

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.
