  • Check List
Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is one of the most convenient, easy, and popular trek in Annapurna region. As the name suggests, Poon Hill is quite popular, especially for the panoramic view of Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Lamjung Himal, and Annapurna South. Observe the sun rise over the mountains from Poon Hill, and you might realize what every day sunrise has to offer in this Photographer's Paradise. Beside this, the trek offers you to view a collective pose of nature, with beautiful villages, fields happy with paddy, and terraced slopes.
Ghorepani is an ancient village where traders had found water (In Nepali: Paani) for their mules and horses (In Nepali: Ghora). You will share this trek with other trekkers of Annapurna Base camp, and donkeys and animals. Through dense forest of rhododendron you reach Ghorepani, where there are lots of teahouses and lodges for travelers. You can also view mountains peeking over Ghorepani in a clear bright day. This trek is quite popular, as it is the shortest of all to the Annapurna, and doesn't possess much challenge: anybody with passion in trekking can go for this trek.
Starting from Phedi of Surkhet, Dhampus awaits with views of Mt. Annapurna South and Fishtail. We pass through forests full with rhododendron to Landruk Village, and then to one of the most beautiful village of the world—the Ghandruk village. The terrace fields and guarding mountains shall embrace you in the very first look. Through Tadapani you will be welcomed by Magar inhabitants at Ghorepani. And then finally, when you reach to Poon Hill, the infant rays of sun over the smooth landscape will overwhelmingly arrest you. Carve in your memories, this view will be one of the most mesmerizing moments in your entire life time!

We, the Himalayan Wild Treks offer you the most economic and best offer for Ghorepani Poon Hill trek for nature and travel enthusiasts.

We will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara; and teahouses during the trek. We will stay at Nirvana Hotel in Kathmandu and Snow Hill Lodge in Pokhara. All accommodations are on double-shared basis. Single supplement will be served on request and will cost an additional. Himalayan Wild Treks will arrange rooms with attached bathrooms with 24 hours running cold and hot water however, teahouses in some places only have shared washing and toilet facilities. Also note that single rooms are readily available in Kathmandu, Pokhara and the trekking regions at lower elevation but it might be difficult to find them at higher elevations.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements
This trek being a moderate of sort requires a good health of a person with ability to walk on the trail for at least five to seven hours carrying a light backpack. Walking at higher elevations require more physical stamina than at lower elevations but since this is an average route anyone with good health, willingness to walk and passion for travel can enjoy it. For the warm up, physical orientation needed for this elevation can be gained through various exercises that can be done prior to the commencement of the journey. In addition to the sound condition of heart, lung and entire setting of a body, past hiking experiences will be a plus point. Besides, it is advisable that those with any past health problems have to make sure that are medically able to walk on the trail. It is also advised that you inform Himalayan Wild Treks of any conditions before booking the trek.

 

Meals in Trekking 
Typical Nepalese food is the specialty we will relish on our journey in addition to the international cuisine that is Tibetan, Continental, Italian, Indian and so on. Breakfast and dinner will be provided according to menu that is in the lodge or a guest house. As for the lunch, it will be provided on the way to the next destination. All mealsincluding breakfast, lunch and dinner, will be provided during trekking while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. There will also be welcome and farewell dinners.

 

Best Time to Travel
As for the propitious seasons to carry out the trekking in the Annapurna Region, the suggestable time would be September to November and March to May. During these times, the visit will be showered with the arcane beauty of the nature and the outstanding landscape views. To avoid the traffic, you can choose any of the times from December to February. It is also to be informed that during the winter the temperature here goes down low that poses challenges to the travelers. Except for botanists, the trekking in this region in monsoon or summer that is from June to August can be impacted by the rain.
