Getting accommodation, food, and drink services in the Ghorepani Poon hill trek is easy to access, so you can freely go on the trek. Although, it might be a bit difficult to get space at some pace if you do not book in advance. So, we recommend reserving your seat before you reach your next destination at least one day earlier.

Accommodation on Poon Hill Trekking Route


Lodge in Ghorepani Poon hill trail

Ghorepani Poon hill trekking route covers Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, Banthanti, Ghorepani, Tadapani, and Ghandruk towns. You can get accommodations easily everywhere, but it might be a bit difficult to get a room in Tadapani during the high season. Tadapani is a junction where people come from Chhomrong after the ABC trek, Ghandruk, and Poon hill, and there are limited lodges, so you need to book in advance your space in this place.

There are lots of guesthouses at every stop where you spend the night during the trek. Most lodges have common twin-sharing rooms, but some guesthouses also have attached bathrooms. There are two separate beds in one room for two people with clean shit, soft mattresses, a pillow, and a blanket for each bed. The bed might not be the same as in the hotel in the city, but it is comfortable enough to sleep in.

Food in Ghorepani Trek

You might be worried about food availability during your Ghorepani trek and think that you need to stay always with local food! No, it's not true! You will have a food menu for every place with mixed-up food items western and local.

The cooks are basically trained mainly in most of the places, but some lodges are hiring a professional cook. The taste of the same food item might be slightly different in a different place. One thing that you may feel bored seeing is the same items in every guesthouse because the food menu is managed by the lodge management committee.

The foods that you can see on the menu are spaghetti, macaroni, curry rice, momo, fried noodles, and much more. The foods are delicious and hygienic on the Poon hill trek. They make Dal Bhat (local food) very nice which is organic and healthy. Dal Bhat is a full meal, so you can have this if you are starving. You can get as much as you can eat at a single price. For the breakfast, you get chapatti bread, Gurung bread, oatmeal, regular bread, eggs, etc.

Drinking Water in Poon Hill Trek

You can buy bottled mineral water in lower areas like at the beginning and at the end, but you do not get those after Ulleri until Ghorepani. They do not sell bottled water to control the number of plastic around here. You can buy refilled water from a big jar, so you need to have a water bottle with you. You can also drink regular tap water refilling directly from the tap, but you need to use purification tablets or sterilizers before drinking it.

Toilets and Showers in Ghorepani Poon Hill

After the matter of lodging, food and drink come next about the toilets and showers availabilities on the trek. You will have two different types of toilets during the trek. There are western sitting and squat toilets in most of the guesthouses, so you can use whichever you prefer.

You will get hot showers everywhere on the trek. The lodges have solar and gas to make the water hot for the shower. Some lodges also use fire which runs through the fire heater from the restaurant dining. If there is no sunshine, you need to wait until they make the fire on in the dining and then take a shower. You can get free showers in most places, but you need to pay in Tadapani for the hot shower.

Conclusion

Ghorepani Ghandruk circuit trek is a well-managed trekking region that is managed by a lodge management committee. It is a classic trek, so there are lots of guesthouses to stay during the trek. You will have a food menu for lunch, dinner, and breakfast, so you can have the food from a menu and do not have to stay with local food all the time but, if you would like to try the local items, you will have them. Although, don’t expect the accommodation and food you get in the cities.
