Ghorepani Poonhill Ghandruk Trek (Pokhara to Pokhara)
400

Overview

One of the most popular short treks in Nepal is the Ghorepani Poon hill trek. With both easy-to-walk ways and rugged trails, the Poonhil trek takes you through an exhilarating view of the Himalayas with barely any difficulty. Since you only have to reach a height of 3200 meters, there is a minimum chance of you suffering from altitude sickness.

Poonhill is an easy-going trek and yet does not fail to give you the best trekking experience. We highly recommend it to you if you don't want too much pressure while trekking and have limited time in your hands. This trek design for those trekkers who are already in Pokhara or like to arrange travel to Pokhara on their own.

Itinerary

Day 1
Drive from Pokhara to Nayapul and trek to Hile (1430m/ 4691.601ft)

On the first day, we start early and go on a pleasant drive to Nayapul, which takes us through green hills and a fantastic city view. We start our trek from Nayapul.

After trekking on a well-built trail of uphill stairs through hills and small villages for about 3 hours, you will reach Hile. It is a tiny village that has heartwarming hospitality with a beautiful view of the Modi Khola.

Day 2
Trek to Ghorepani (2840m/ 9317.585ft)

We will trek to Ghorepani on this day. We will pass through small but diverse villages like Tijhedhunga, Ulleri, and Banthati. These villages give you a sense of warmth as the Gurung and Magar community living here make you feel very welcome.

Since it is a long trek, we take ample breaks as we slowly walk towards our destination.

You will walk through the oak and rhododendron forest and maybe even witness some wild animals and exotic birds. After a 6-7 hours trek, we will finally reach Ghorepani and stay there overnight.

Day 3
Hike to Poon Hill (3210m/ 10531.5 ft) and Trek to Ghandruk (2012m/ 6601.05ft)

We will start this day very early as we need to catch the breathtaking view of the sunrise over the majestic Himalayas. We will leave our lodge about 2 hours before sunrise and hike up a tiny hill to reach the Poonhill viewpoint.

Surrounded by 32 peaks, you will be blown away by the breathtaking view of sunrise over the Annapurna massif, Gangapurna, Himchuli, Machhapuchhre, and Dhaulagiri.

After spending time at the viewpoint, we will walk back to our lodge. After breakfast, we walk to Ghandruk. We walk for about 7 hours before we reach this culturally rich village.

Ghandruk is a Gurung village that possesses traditionality along with a majestic view of the mountains. It also has local museums, and people perform cultural dances and songs for you to observe.

Day 4
Trek down to Nayapul and drive to Pokhara

What is the best time to trek to Ghorepani?

The best time to travel to Ghorepani is either between March to May or September to November. Any time before and after that maybe troublesome due to monsoon or extreme winter.

Will I suffer from altitude sickness?

There is little chance of anyone suffering from altitude sickness in this trek since the highest point is only 3210 meters.

Will there be electricity and wifi available?

Most guesthouses do have electricity and WiFi available. However, it would be best if you carried a power bank to charge your devices in case of power cuts. Finally, because we will be in remote villages, we may not get electricity back quickly.

What kind of clothes should I carry with me?

If you are traveling between May to March, light clothing with a thick jacket will be enough. However, if you are going between September to November, warmer clothes may be needed. Nonetheless, the weather does get quite windy in Poon Hill. Therefore, make sure you pack accordingly.

How fit should I be to trek to Poonhill?

Since it is an easy trek, you can easily finish the trek if you are healthy and mentally prepared.
