Unfortunately like all over nepal, there is also a lot of garbage on and next to the trail.”
Great trek, rafting and safari Reviewed Tour: Ghorepani Poon hill Trek 5 days
John Perry From UK At
5 - Excellent
“Excellent trip! My wife and I identified the itinerary that we wanted for our trip to Nepal (Poon Hill trek, rafting and Chitwan safari with New Year´s Eve in Kathmandu) and we searched various travel companies to help make the itinerary work for us. We found Nepal Lion Tours and Treks Pvt Ltd via Bookmundi. The boss, Shiva, responded quickly and arranged the itinerary that we wanted with some extras that we hadn´t considered all for a reasonable price. After a few emails back and forth with Shiva to confirm all the details we were ready, happy and confident that the trip would be great.
After arriving in Kathmandu, everything was arranged for us, and we were assigned Prakash as our guide for the week along with a porter for the trek. Prakash was talkative and funny, and looked after us greatly. He was happy to share many things about his culture and we enjoyed his company. He has been doing many treks in Nepal for the past 7 years, so he knows his stuff and we knew we were in capable hands. Also, he understands a lot of foreign cultures and knows what we are looking for in with our time in Nepal.
The trek was fabulous with beautiful views and we were lucky to have such great weather in December (sunny, 15C in the day and less than 5C at night). The tea houses that you stay in are basic, most had hot water for a shower (but maybe try and be the first or second one in the shower so the hot water doesn´t run out!), and the food was decent. Note that any drinks (including teas and water) are to be paid for yourself, but everything else is included (i.e. accommodation and food). Day 1 lasts around 4 hours hike all uphill, Day 2 is 7 hours hike all uphill, Day 3 is 7 hours hike uphill and downhill, and Day 4 is 4 hours all downhill. The paths are well maintained (some of the steps are quite big!), lots of tea houses to stop off at along the way (usually every hour or so) and they have a lot of supplies.
The rafting on the Trisuli River was fun. It is around 20km which takes around 3 hours and there were 9 of us in the rafting boat. The water is cold, and depending on the company you go with you need to check whether there are showers at the end, or at least how you will get to warm clothing / shower.
The Chitwan safari was good experience. We stayed in a nice lodge (Hermitage) and went on a boat, walk and jeep safari. The vegetation was very high in December making it more difficult to view the animals, but we still hit lucky and saw a lot. You can do elephant riding and there are other ´tricks´ that the elephants can do. We chose not to go with these as we were sceptical about their training.
We used a private car to get from Pokhara to the rafting, then to Chitwan, then back to Kathmandu. For us we felt it was worth doing and Shiva booked it all for us, and Prakash was with us to make sure it all went smoothly. When we were back in Kathmandu, Shiva took us to a lovely local restaurant with dancing to see how the trip went for us. Both Shiva and Prakash really looked after us and made sure everything went to plan. Great trip, thoroughly enjoyed, thank you to both of them!”

“I am a father of 3 sons and the four of us joined the trek on the 23rd of Dec. 2018. After a long 7 hour bus trip from Kathmandu to Pokhara (not very interesting), we met with our guide Raju. The following day he took us from the hotel in Pokhara to the starting point in Nayapool. The first and second day were relatively easy and we enjoyed the scenery. The 3rd day (sunrise at Poonhill) was fantastic, but challenging. Basically we walked (with a few breaks) from 5.30 AM to 5 PM. The views from Poonhill and from other high locations were wonderful. Our guide Raju is a super friendly and caring guide. He motivated my boys (16,15,13 years) and took good care of us. The 4th and 5th day were great as well. The Guest House in Ghandruk (Simon GH) was the only good one during the trek. The other hostels are very very basic, but we understand that we cannot expect much in the mountains of this undeveloped country. After 5 days we said goodbye to Raju and we hope to see him again some day, somewhere.”

Poonhill Trek - Overview

If you want to experience trekking in Nepal, enjoy beautiful scenery, and visit traditional villages, but do not have time for a longer trek, then the Poonhill Trek is just what you might prefer. It is a relatively easy trek ideal for first-time trekkers.

Machapuchare mountain view from atop Poonhill
Trekkers having reached Poonhill
View of the Annapurna range from Ghandruk village
Beautiful view of Annapurna South from Poon hill at 3210 m.

Poonhill lies at an altitude of 3,210 m and promises spectacular panoramic views of Dhaulagiri, the world’s 7th highest mountain at 8,167 m and Annapurna I the world’s 10th highest mountain at 8,091m, together with many other sky-reaching peaks. This relatively small hill in Himalayan terms provides awe-inspiring mountain views, making all the physical efforts worthwhile. The panoramic view of the Annapurna range from atop Poonhill is unmatched.

Enroute to the Poonhill trail you’ll be presented with sparkling streams, oak and rhododendron forests, traditional Nepalese villages, and many local teashops. Ghandruk, an antique and cultural village, is another point of interest where the culture and tradition of the Gurung ethnic group can be explored. You can see the beautiful Mount Machhapuchhre (meaning fishtail) really close from here. This mountain in the Annapurna range looks particularly striking because of its pointed profile that looks like a fish tail, despite only having an altitude of 6,903m.

How our Travel Expert Service Works

  • 2 The travel expert will help you with creating and customising a trip for you. If you have any questions or concerns relating to the trip, the travel expert will also be able to help you with those.
  • 3 When you feel that your trip is exactly per your wish, you'll be able to book the entire trip here on Bookmundi.
The Advantages of Bookmundi
  • Selected Local Travel Experts All our local travel experts have been chosen based on rigorous selection criteria. In fact, we reject 98 out of 100 local travel agencies, and thereby giving you access to the top 1-2% local travel experts.
  • Secure Online Payment Each and every trip is required to go through Bookmundi's secure payment platform, powered by Stripe and supported by SSL, so all payments are carried out in 100% secure manners.
