About Poon Hill Trek

One of the short and easy mountain trips in Nepal's Annapurna region is the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. This trail has hundreds of trekkers daily because first-time trekkers, elderlies, and families can do it quickly. The Poon Hill viewpoint is a primary attraction of this trip, from where you can see magnificent views of the Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayan ranges with unblocked sunrise.

Hiking up to Poon Hill early morning to catch the sunrise view over the mighty Himalayas can be pretty tuff for someone. Still, it can be the best memory of the trip, which is why this trip is also known as Poon Hill Sunrise Trek.

The trek goes through traditional Gurung and Magar villages and rhododendron forests. The forests look amazing when the flowers bloom in spring.

Not just for beginners and families with kids, the Ghorepani Poon Hill trekking is a great trip even for experienced trekkers and hikers who are traveling to Nepal with limited time. It is a reputed trekking region with good facilities of lodges to stay and serve food from a food menu every place. It means you do not need a tent to sleep in and carry food for the trip.

Trekking to Poon Hill is an easy mountain activity, but it is not mean it is super flexible. However, you must have some physical training and be fit to walk a few hours on up and downhill trails. You will love the magnificent scenery on this trek. Still, you also will have an excellent opportunity to experience Magar and Gurung culture and lifestyle. The Magar and Gurung people are the local habitants in this region, who are familiar as the brave Gurkha Soldiers in the British and Indian regiments.

The regular itinerary of the Poon Hill trek is for five days, which makes a loop through Ghandruk Village, but it also can do in 2, 3, or 4 days. The trekkers on the Annapurna Base Camp trek also walk through this trail at the beginning for a few days. Also, the Annapurna Circuit trek ends with visiting the Poon Hill.

5-Day Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking Itinerary Overview

The 5-day Ghorepani Poon Hill trekking itinerary is classic and makes a circuit through Ghandruk. However, you can also complete this route in 4 days from Pokhara to Pokhara. If you do not have enough time, You can visit poon Hill and come back to Pokhara, taking 2 or 3 days. Here, you see an overview of a 5-day trekking itinerary of the Poon Hill Circuit trek.

You drive from Pokhara to Nayapul or Birethanti in the morning and start walking through the Bhrungdi River valley on the first day of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. According to the classic trekking itinerary, Tikhedhunga is the first camp. Still, you can hike up to Ulleri on the first passing Tikhedhunga.

After spending the first night in Ulleri, you hike to Ghorepani on the second day. You will walk to Ghorepani inside a deep forest after Banthanti for a few hours. The Ghorepani village is between rhododendron forests with many buildings and colorful roofs. You sleep here and hike to poon Hill early morning to catch an unblocked sunrise and see magnificent mountain views on the third day during the Poon Hill circuit trek. After the Poon Hill visit, you walk back to the lodge, have breakfast, and then trek to Tadapani.

Poon Hill Trip Map


Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek Map with altitude detail

We have made a 10-day Poon Hill Trekking map from your arrival to the final departure home. According to our trip map, our airport representative picks you up from the Kathmandu International Airport on day one and transfers you to the hotel, where you meet a tour manager and talk about the next day's program after check-in at the hotel.

You will have a full-day Kathmandu tour on day two. You visit four UNESCO World Heritage sites during the day tour and trip meet in the evening. On day three, you drive to Pokhara, Nepal's second-biggest city, and stay overnight. After a night stay in Pokhara, you go to Birethanti, where you start walking.

You will be in the mountain from the day four to seven for the four nights and return to Pokhara on the day eight. After spending the second visit night in Pokhara, you drive back to Kathmandu on day nine and fly back home with a sweet memory of the Nepalese Himalayas on day ten to complete the Ghorepani Poon Hill trip.

Pokhara to Poon Hill

You can drive from Pokhara to Banthanti directly in a jeep and walk to Ghorepani in one day and visit Poon Hill the next morning. Still, according to our package, you will spend one night in between. You may return to Pokhara the next day if you have little time. You can also trek through Tadapani and Ghandruk, walk to Tatopani (hot spring), and drive to Pokhara if you have a few more days.

Ghandruk to Poon Hill

Ghandruk to Poon Hill is pretty tuff compared to the clockwise route. It is a long day walk on lots of up and downhill trails. You ascend from Ghandruk towards Tadapani for 3 hours through a dense forest and descend for around 15 minutes. You walk on the steep part for an hour here and will have a flat part until Banthanti for another half an hour. Again, you will climb for another 3-4 hours to Deurali and descend for half an hour for the final part to Ghorepani. So, Ghandruk to Poon Hill is doable but pretty hard for the first-time trekker, so going through the clockwise itinerary is highly recommended.

Best Time or Season to Trek to Poon Hill

You will enjoy a lot and see magnificent views if you are on the trek at the right time. Of course! We suggest you to travel to Poon Hill in autumn and spring. You can also visit in winter, but summer is not a perfect time to trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill. The clouds will cover the mountains most of the time in summer. However, other natural attractions like waterfalls, rivers, forests, and bright landscapes always look magnificent on this trekking route. Check the general information about the best time or season to trek to Poon Hill below:

Autumn Season

September to November is the autumn season in Nepal, which comes right after summer. Heavy rainfall in summer clears haze and makes the weather bright in autumn so that you can see colorful mountains, blue skies, and dark green forests at this time. Autumn is the biggest trekking season in Nepal and Poon Hill, so we recommend trekking if you want to explore the region with the best visibility and tolerable temperature.

Spring Season

The spring is the second biggest trekking season in Nepal and also for the Ghorepani. Many rhododendron trees are around the Ghorepani Poon Hill trail, so blooming flowers make the forest colorful in spring. The spring is a dry season, so there will be deep haze in this season in the lower area, but you can see magnificent views from Poon Hill. There might be some snowfall in the higher altitudes, and hail falls with a strong wind in the evening at this time.

What Makes the Trek Memorable?

There must be some expectation for everyone when they plan to travel, so trekkers also might have a desire to see something which makes their trip memorable and a lifetime experience while planning a trek to Poon Hill. So, what makes this trip unique then? Let's check them below:

Poon Hill Viewpoint

The Poon Hill Station is the major highlight of the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. You will hike to this vantage viewpoint from Ghorepani early in the morning with a flashlight, which takes a maximum of an hour. You will see magnificent views of Mt. Dhaulagiri I -IV, Tukuche Peak, Gurja Himal, and Dampus Peak of Dhaulagiri massif, and Nilgiri South, Baraha Shikhar, Annapurna South, Fishtail, and Annapurna II of the Annapurna massif with unblocked sunrise.

You can also see captivating landscapes, valleys, the zenith of green hills, pristine forests (especially when the rhododendron bloom), and more natural attractions from Poon Hill. There are a couple of hundred visitors every day who will enjoy this hill station's natural beauty.

How long is the Trek?

The Trip can be made in 2 to 5 or 6 days, depending on the starting and finishing routes. If you drive to Banthanti directly from Pokhara, hike to Ghorepani, and trek back the same way the next day after the Poon Hill visit, it is just two days. Starting from Nayapul and ending in the same place can take three days. If you are a fast walker, you can make a loop via Tadapani and Ghandruk in 4 days, and the same route can be done in 5 days. If you want to make it longer, you can also visit Jhinu hot Springs and Trek to Phedi through Landruk, Pothana, and Dhampus, depending on your interest and time.

How challenging is the Ghorepani Trek?

The Ghorepani Trek is an easy and relaxed mountain journey. It means you can walk on your face without any rush. The altitude makes it difficult for mountain journeys. Still, the highest elevation of the Ghorepani Trek is 3210m, so you won’t feel the difficulty of breathing or other elevation effects.

It is a well-established and managed Trekking route, so you have many lodges and food choices during the Trip. These lodges and food facilities make for a more comfortable trip.

How many days does it take to reach Poon Hill from Pokhara?

You can reach Pokhara and Poon Hill in one day if you drive to Banthanti directly and walk for about 3 hours. But the driving road is rough and bumpy after Birethanti for the last few hours. Usually, most trekkers walk from Nayapul and take two days to reach Ghorepani. After spending the night, you will hike to this hill station early in the morning from Ghorepani.

How Do You Go to Poon Hill from Kathmandu?

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal, where Tribhuwan International Airport is located, and all travelers coming to Nepal have landed here until now. You can drive by tourist bus, private, or public transport to Pokhara via the Prithvi Highway for 200km to the west.

You can also fly to Pokhara International Airport if you do not like a long driving journey. After spending a night in Pokhara, drive to Nayapul for about 2 hours and then start walking to Ghorepani Poon Hill through Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, and Banthanti.

What can I see from Poon Hill?

Poon Hill is a hill station with a view tower. You can see Mt.Dhaulagiri I, II, and III, Tukuche Peak, Dhampus Peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna Fang, Annapurna South, Hiuchuli, Fishtail (Machhapuchchhre), Annapurna II, and more high mountains with a beautiful sunrise. You can also see a zenith of green hills, beautiful villages, valleys, traditional villages, and dense forests below.

How cold will it be on Poon Hill?

It depends on when you are visiting Poon Hill. It won’t be freezing in spring and October, but the temperature in Poon Hill will be degrees to minus degrees from November to the end of February. We suggest you bring a jacket, a warm hat, and winter gloves for Poon Hill. You can also buy hot drinks at Poon Hill.

Why is Ghorepani Poon Hill considered an easy Trek?

Usually, the high altitude makes it challenging to trek, so you will not reach a very high elevation during the Ghorepani trek. The Altitude factor, temperature, and short Trekking camps make the Trek easy.

Do I need a permit for the Ghorepani Trek?

Yes, having a Trekking permit for this Trip would be best. You need an entry permit for the Annapurna conservation area, which we manage for you.

It costs 3000 NPR, and you also need a Trekkers Information Management System (TIMS) Card. It costs 2000 NPR and can be taken from the Nepal Tourism Board office.

Do I need a guide for the Trek?

It is compulsory, and hiring a guide and porter for the Trek will be nice. You will get lots of information from the guide and walk easily without carrying heavy Trekking gear if you hire a porter. The guide manages all accommodations during the trek because getting accommodations in some places during the high season is challenging.

How much does it cost to hike Poon Hill?

The exact cost of the Poon Hill hike depends on the services included and excluded. A complete board trip with hotel accommodations in the city and a sightseeing tour costs more than hiring a guide. The Ghorepani Trekking cost also depends on the size of the group. If you are traveling individually, it is more expensive than in a large group. We offer the best price if you are booking in a group.

Which trek is better, Mardi Himal or Ghorepani Poon Hill?

Both of these Treks are short in the Annapurna Region. The views from these two treks are entirely different. However, Ghorepani is slightly more accessible than the Mardi Himal Trek because of its elevation.

Can I see Everest from Poon Hill?

No, It is impossible to see Mt.Everest from Poon Hill. Everest is east of Kathmandu, and the Annapurna is in the west. If you would like to see Mt. Everest at the same time as you are on a trip to Poon Hill, you can take a helicopter tour or scenic mountain flight from Kathmandu.

You can ask anything to us if you have any queries regarding the Ghorepani Trekking at any time.
