You will experience real Nepali life from locals working in the many rice fields, porters carrying their loads to stock mountain shops and buffalo herders.

Ghorepani poon hill trek can be completed in 3 days or extended if you desire.

The weather and therefore the views are at their best from September to December,however this trek can be enjoyed all year round,even during the monsoon where the trails are quiet. On this Ghorepani poon hill trek you will enjoy stunning mountain scenery over snow capped mountain ranges and the view from the top of Poon Hill at sunrise or sunset is one of the best photographic opportunities you will find.

After two days climb you reach Ghorepani beautiful poon magar's village.This is the main junction for trekking in the Annapurna region. From here you can choose to go on the world famous Annapurna Circuit (5416 mtr) or visit Annapurna Base Camp(4160m).After a good night rest we wake early to summit Poon Hill to watch the sunrise over Dhaulagiri (8,167m) the ninth highest mountain in the world.

You then trek through Rhododendron forests with many waterfalls with chances to see many of the native birds of Nepal including the beautiful national bird 'Danfe',which is really nice bird with green and blue colour on.You may also see musk deer,Himalayan Thar (mountain goat),Langoor monkey and black bears.This leads you to Ghandruk(1950m),where you can learn more about the life and history of the Gurung people in the heritage museum.This caste supplies many of the soldiers for the Gorkha Army,famed for it bravery.Again the views here across the Annapurna range are fantastic.From here it is downhill to Pokhara where you can rest and recharge and savor the memories of an amazing journey into the Himalayas.

Essential Infos

Accommodation in the mountain during your trek:

Rooms are based on 2 people generally sharing a twin bed in one room, it is safe and clean but you have to use bathroom services outside of your room.

It is really important that you have to understand that the accommodation during your trekking  will be very basic but clean  and safe.    

Which Months is the best to go to the mountain?

There are two main trekking season Sep. to Dec. and Feb 15 to April is the best because by that time you can easily explore beautiful mountain every day because of clear weather each day in Nepal ,However you can make your trip all year .around Nepal.

Fitness level and altitude:

The altitude of 3210 meter and the trek duration of 7 days make the Ghorepani poon hill classified as a short, sweet and best trekking route in Nepal. The trails generally ascending and descending both but it is safe and beautiful scenic view from each settlement.

So, you will sleep one night at 2850 meters which is Ghorepani therefore you don’t get altitude sickness generally and enough oxygen each day.

As a Himalaya guide we recommend that all trekkers exercise 2 to 3 times a week before you start your trek back home and also it’s better to avout smoking habit if you are in it and drinking habit if you drink too much, so our porters will be carrying your big bags which means you will have your light bag.

The altitude of 4130m and the trekking duration of 12 days make the Annapurna Base Camp Trek classified as strenuous difficulty. The trek ascends very gradually when compared to all of our long treks and you only spend 1 night above 4000m. You are therefore much less likely to suffer from any altitude sickness related symptoms than the Langtang, Everest Base Camp Trek or Annapurna Circuit.
