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 avoid 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.
