Ghorepani Poonhill is one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal. Ghorepani Poonhill trek is considered as relatively easier trek for beginner trekkers. The original trekking to Ghorepani Poonhill starts from Birethati. Almost 45 minutes drive from Pokhara will take you to Nayapul and from there about 1 hour and 50 minutes drive will take you to Birethati which is the main starting point of the trek. There is a checkpoint they check the permits before starting the trek to Ghorepani Poonhill.This trek leads you to lush valleys, cascading waterfalls, dense forest and colorful villages. The views during the trek are awe-inspiring. During the trek to Poonhill you will encounter the warm hospitality of the Gurung people. Also you can encounter their cultures and traditions as you will visit the largest Gurung settlements of Annapurna Region, Ghorepani and Ghandruk.

One thing that makes Poonhill the most popular trekking destination is the sunrise and sunset views over the mountains. During the sunrise and sunset you will see different amazing colors in the mountains which keep on changing until it becomes sparkling white. Other than the sunrise and sunset over the Annapurna Range you will also cherish the incredible views of the Annapurna range, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m) Fishtail (6997m) Annapurna South, Himchuli, and many more. The fascinating views of the mountains, hills and picturesque villages makes Poonhill  a ‘Photographer’s Paradise’. Ghorepani Poonhill trek is suitable for the people of every age group and can be a best destination for family trek, friends trek, couple trek and solo trek as well. 

Poonhill Trek Difficulty

The elevation of Poonhill is only 3210 meters so there is very less chance of getting altitude sickness even if you are a beginner trekker. Poonhill is considered relatively one of the easiest trekking destinations of Annapurna Region. You will have to climb 3000 steps after crossing a suspension bridge from Hile to Ulleri. The climb up to Ulleri is only the difficulty of this trek. After you complete the steps, the trek starts getting easier and much better. You will then walk through the forests blanketed with Rhododendron trees where enchanting sounds of birds and species will be entertaining you throughout the way.

This trek was an amazing adventure. There were spectacular views of lush green hills and jungles, waterfalls, as well as snow capped mountains. This area of Nepal is remarkably beautiful and alive with wildlife. We saw monkeys in the jungle. Our guide, Mr. Lakpa Sherpa and porters Pasang and Uttam were fantastic. Lakpa was able to anticipate my every need. He was very caring and very careful. He even held my hand on difficult downhill descents. He was also very knowledgeable and was able to p...

“Amazing 5Days 4Nights Poon Hill trekking with Actual Adventure” Actual Adventure is highly recommended for travellers who are going to Nepal!! During the 5Days 4Nights trekking on Poon Hill, they do not only offer a well organised trek but also a safe, fun and nourishing journey for my friend and I to see the beauty of Nepal. Kedar, owner of Actual Adventure, truly understands our requirements and customized itinerary that fully meets our needs. With his flexible arrang... See more ement, we can enjoy trekking, paragliding, and rafting within our limited time during the stay. Sujan, our best mate, is a fun, attentive, and professional manger and guide. With his extensive knowledge and local network in the area, we are able to see the best scenery and enjoy the best accommodation and services on the hill after a long day trek. Most importantly, mindful Sujan keeps us safe from dangers like AMS as well as blood sucking worms. Having Sujan for your trek, you can definitely find happiness and never feel bored. Kumar, the nice porter, who helps to carry our baggages. Without his help, we can hardly complete our trek. From the stories of Kumar, you can surely know more about the habits, languages and culture of Nepalis. After all, Actual Adventure is not only a professional traveling agency but also a good companion that brings you unforgettable memory in Nepal!   Regards          See less...

My adventure began in Kathmandu staying at the Alpine Hotel in the Thamel District. There I met Sujan Neupane owner of Actual Adventure. Sujan gave me great information about this trek and set me up with lodging in Pokhara at the beginning and end of my stay in the Annapurna Conservation Area. I met Sujan the next day at his office to go over the many other adventures his company offers including treks to Everest Base Camp and rafting adventures down some of the wildest rivers in the world.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking “I arrived in Nepal as a lone traveler and with no experience of Nepal or the surrounding areas. Kedar and his team at Actual Adventure took complete care of me from the moment I arrived at the airport, through to the hotel transfers and trek. Overall I found the trip to be an amazing experience, the temples and markets in Thamel were fascinating, as were the scenic views and pretty tea houses in Annapurna. I would like to thank Kedar and Bikram in particular... See more for providing an excellent guide service that was not only great value for money but informative and helpful too. I would highly recommend Actual Adventures as they provided an amazing service, both prior to and during the trip.”     Current :UAE Kelly King London UK See less...
