Do you want to experience trekking in Nepal but do not have enough time for Everest Base Camp or Annapurna Circuit treks? Then Poon Hill trek is a great alternative for you. Join us on this guided, 7-day trip and see the Himalayas up close.

Drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara and start your trek from Nayapul. Reach Ghorepani, one of the biggest villages in the Annapurna region and a famous tourist destination on its own, on the third day of the trip. Hike up to the top of Poon Hill (3210m) on the fourth day of the trip and enjoy beautiful sunrise and mountain views. See the entire Annapurna range and take as many pictures as you want to.

Time to head back to Pokhara. Stop by at Jhinu along the way and take a dip in one of its hot water springs. Hike all the way to Siwai and take a jeep/bus to Pokhara, from where you will drive back to Kathmandu.

Brilliant service. Majority of trails are stairs Not for beginners
Full of stone stairs. We wouldn’t recommend for beginners. Stunning views. Worth visiting especially in Ghandhruk.

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.
