Commonly known as the short Annapurna Circuit trek, Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is an ideal trek for those who prefer a short trek but aim to embrace the natural beauty and the magnificent views of the Himalayas. Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is also friendly towards families and suitable for all ages. The towering mountains, the high slopes and the colossal scenes bring numerous trekkers to this impeccable trekking region.

Other than the amazing display of the Himalayan mountains like Mount Dhaulagiri (8167m), Annapurna I (8091m), Mount Machhepuchhre (6998m), Nilgiri (7041m), Annapurna South (7219m), Annapurna II (7939m) and Annapurna III (7555m), Poon Hill Trek gives trekkers insight into the nearby villages and cultures in this region.

The trek commences after a short drive from Pokhara, at Nayapul, where you come across a suspension bridge over the Modi Khola River. A short hike along the bank of Modi Khola leads to a small village called Birethanti and as you climb the winding stone-paved trail through villages and adjoining farmland, you get remarkable glimpses of the gigantic Machhapuchhre Mountain. The trek then goes to Ghorepani and ultimately to Poon hill.

The major highlight of this trek is to see the sunrise from Poon Hill at an altitude of 3210 m, an hour's climb from Ghorepani. On this short expedition to Poon Hill, you can observe the entire Annapurna mountain range, covered in red, orange and pink shades of the sun at the sunset and sunrise, giving truly magnificent views.

After an awe-inspiring sunset and sunrise view from Poon Hill, you descend through forests and the trail eases as you reach to Ghandruk, a favorite tourist destination and distinct Gurung village known for its traditional houses, great landscape, and rich culture. This village also offers excellent close-up views of Annapurna South, Machhapuchre and Himachuli.

The final day will be spent in the delightful and lovely villages like Tikhedhunga, Birethane and Nayapul where you get a chance to further interact with the people of this region. Then, return to Pokhara, appreciating the last views of the mountains.

This short yet spectacular trek is sure to make you fall in love with the Nepalese Himalayan Mountains!

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • What is the required budget for a trip to Nepal?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • 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.

     

  • 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 Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.

     

  • 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.
