Overview

Many guests, when they come to Nepal, they get starstruck by Pokhara’s majestic beauty. Ghorepani Poon Hill, as near Pokhara, has been receiving recent broader recognition in the field of trekking and hiking. Poon Hill Trek is a quick and comparatively comfortable trek into the Annapurna region. This Trek is fit for those who do not have time but still carve to spend with their burning passion for observing the excellence of snow-capped mountains. This Trek offers fascinating mountain vistas of wonderful Mt. Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchare, Himchuli, and many other snowcapped cliffs. It is also considered a mini Annapurna Circuit Trek.

This typical 9 Days Poon Hill Journey commences from the naturally endowed city at Nayapul with a picturesque drive within the hills and a magnificent panorama of the peaks from Pokhara. The trip escorts us through the charming Gurung and Magar villages. It will be accompanying astonishing mountain spectacle and ancient traditions, cultural variations. It will also follow pastoral farms and verdant woods of Rhododendron trees, crossing through the great prospect with rainforest and canyon among the extensive vegetation valley by grasping the significant ancient’s settlements of Bhanthati, Tikhedunga, Uller, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk.

 The escalating beautiful short Trek to Poon Hill from Ghorepani is something that this Trek shouldn’t miss. It is also the notable highlight of the Trek. Poon Hill is a fantastic place as it persists at an elevation of 3210 meters high above sea level, the journey’s highest point. The aurora vibe given by the sunrise view from the peak of Poon Hill is wondrous. Poon Hill is plausibly one of the most excellent viewpoints in the Annapurna region to watch the dawn breaking over the Annapurna Mountains. Ghorepani to Poon Hill is merely about 45 m hikes. When you arrive at Poon Hill, it will give you the entire magnificent Himalaya vistas of Mt. Annapurna, Mt. Dhaulagiri, and Mt. Machhapuchhre. You’ll be star-struck by the majestic beauty portrayed by this very realm of Western Nepal.

FAQ

What is the primary packaging for our journey?

Travelers must be aware of what they are traveling with them. Several items should be included in your package list. Trekking facilities, clothing, drugs, a visa, the appropriate documents, debit cards, and so on must be packed.

Will we require any permits to visit the Annapurna Region?

Yeah, the answer. The ACAP and our good Old Management Information Card from Trekker require the Area of Annapurna Conservation Permit (TIMS card). For a specific walker, this cost $20 apiece. The Nepal Council for Tourism (NTB) in Kathmandu allows hikers both to do this. With you, you are going to require your passport and passport photos.

Is it necessary to get insurance while walking in the Annapurna Region?

Although insurance is not required, it is the safest method to Trek in the Himalayas. If your Annapurna trip is less than five days, you can avoid the insurance; however, insurance is suggested if your Trek is longer than five days.

Is travel possible during the rainy season?

When it comes to travel during the rainy season, we do not recommend it to our tourists. If you go during these months, you will undoubtedly face a range of challenges. It’s not going to be a pleasant day. There’ll be slick roads to contend with, as well as a bevy of additional difficulties.

The Trek to Tea House is what kind of journey it is?

Teahouse hikes imply that you spend your hiking in a modest native lodge or a mountain home each night.

The lodging is simple, with only 5-10 rooms and a communal area. The majority of Nepalese treks are teahouse treks with accommodation maintained by locals.
