4 Days Poonhill Trek From Kathmandu or Pokhara

Himalaya Trip offers 4 days Poonhill Trek from Kathmandu or Pokhara. Poonhill Trek is a transformational journey in the foothills of Annapurna massifs. Popularized as one of the best vantage points in western Nepal, the trek to Poonhill is filled with adventure and enigma. Poonhill stands at an elevation of 3210 meters in the Myagdi district of west Nepal. Since the inception of trekking back in the '60s, Poonhill trekking has been a sought-after trek in Nepal.

The northern highlands of the Kaski district behold naturalistic magnificence. Poonhill stands as a popular vantage point near Pokhara city in Nepal. This is one of the short treks in Nepal which can be completed within a week at most. Typically beginning from the serene city of Pokhara, the trek to Poonhill traverses north. 

From the outskirts of Pokhara, your journey takes the Baglung-Pokhara highway and reaches Nayapul. This point of the trek is the starting point. We ascend our way through the Gurung settlements dotted across the to reach Ghorepani. In between Ghorepani and Nayapul lies several villages such as Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, Banthanti, and Nagethanti. From Nayapul, the trail takes on the deciduous monsoon forests of the Annapurna region. 

Poonhill Trek route portrays distinct variations of vegetation all along. The lower elevation areas of Poonhill trekking are full of dense lush green forests. As you ascend beyond Ghorepani on your hike to Poonhill, the area is semi-arid with scattered forests. Poonhill trek elevation gain ranges from a mere 1070 meters at Nayapul to 3210 meters at Poonhill. This elevation range creates a different atmosphere at every stopover you take. The area surrounding the trail is filled with dense Rhododendron forests from the start until reaching Ghandruk village.

The sunrise view from Poonhill and Ghorepani has long been appreciated by trekkers from across the world. The morning view of sunrise from Poon Hill provides mesmerizing scenery of sun rays spreading onto the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri masses.

Prominent Attractions of  Poonhill Trek

Poon Hill Viewpoint:
Stationed amidst the gigantic massif of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountains, Poonhill is astounding. The vista of these two mountains as seen from Poonhill is magnificent. Trekkers prefer to hike to Poonhill from Ghorepani early in the morning, usually at 4 am They make it to Poonhill right before sunrise. The air during the morning here is crisp and invigorating. As the sun unveils from the Annapurna giants, a whole range of mountains are visible before you. Rugged ridges, snow a capped summit create a stunning contrast against the morning sky. It's a mesmerizing watch as the color imprinted on the mountains shifts from soft hues of pink to orange. As the day unfolds, the radiant of the color changes to shades of gold and white.

Ghorepani Village:
Ghorepani village is the highest-altitude village you will be staying in during the Poonhill trek. The name “Ghore Pani” translates to “horse water” in Nepali. Long before, this village used to be a rest stop for traders and travelers to quench the thirst of their horses and mules on the way to Tibet. Ghorepani village creates a tranquil ambiance amidst dense Rhododendron forest. During the Spring months (March-May), Ghorepani is vibrant and vivid with an explosion of colors of Rhododendron. You will gaze at the canvas of red, white, and pink flowers all over. This is the final point of ascent in Ghorepani Poonhill Trek and we begin our final stretch of hike to Poonhill from this village.

Ghandruk Village:
Ghandruk village is encircled by the gigantic massifs of the Annapurna mountains. This village is a typical Gurung village portraying the artistic aura of centuries back. The main entrance of Ghandruk is filled with stone houses adorned with colorful Buddhist prayer flags. Inhabited mostly by Gurung people, this village is the starting point for the Annapurna Base Camp Trek too. It stands at an elevation of 1939 meters and is the most densely located village of Poonhill trekking.

Trishuli rafting, Chitwan Jungle safari package and Ghorepani Poonhill Ghandruk Trek

We book three activities with Himalaya Trip and the experience was amazing. Harka, the team leader was very friendly. He takes care of us at every moment and we feel very confortable. The same happened with the guides we meet in each activity, they were very nice. I highly reccomend to do a trek in Nepal, we didn’t have lot of days, so we choose the Poon Hill Trek. It was very good, the wheather was so clear that the last day we saw the sunrise in Poon Hill, the view of the Annapurnas was fascinating. Through the route you visit many villages, but the last one, Ghandruk, was the best end point we could had. Hope one day we could repeat and do the Annapurna Circuit…

Essential Infos


Transportation To/From

Ground transportation for the Poonhill trek depends upon your group size. If you are in a group 1-3, we will have a car for your trip. If the group size ranges from 4-7 pax, a jeep will be hired for the trip. Private vehicles will be booked for Syauli Bazar to Pokhara and Pokhara to Nayapul section of the trip.


Starting Point of Poonhill Trek

As a general practice, the Poonhill trek is initiated from Nayapul. It is a small highway-side village located 40 kilometers northwest of Pokhara. This is a classic initiating point for the Poonhill trek. However, the road has been paved from Nayapul until Ulleri but is only accessible via Jeep or a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Also, the ending point of the trek is Syauli Bazar itself.


Communication Services in Poonhill Trekking

Unlike 4-5 years back, Poonhill trekking trail has a strong reach of network communication now. There is a good reach of cellular and data services easily accessible in the area. The parts of the trekking trail have 4G access for you to connect with your loved ones. That being said, since the geography is remote and difficult to access, the network gets disrupted most of the time. Your tea houses will have Wi-Fi services for extra cost if needed.


Difficulty of Poonhill Trekking

Trek to Ghorepani- Poonhill is an easygoing adventure. Since the duration of the trek is 3 days at most 1 day being the descent, it is a beginner trek. Novice trekkers can easily complete the trek without much stress on their physique. The trail at first is a bit steeply inclined which might make you breathless. However, as you ascend higher your body adapts to the altitude and it gets easier. Poonhill trek is recommended to novice and beginner trekkers. This trek can be a stepping stone for those looking to embark on high-altitude traverses like Manaslu Circuit Trek, Annapurna Circuit Trek, and Everest 3 Passes Trek.


Poonhill Trek Route/ What is the Trail like to Poonhill?

Poonhill trekking encompasses dense jungles filled with Rhododendrons, birch, juniper, fir, and bamboo. Your trail will traverse these lush forests for the most part. As you ascend above Ghorepani, you will gaze at the pine vegetation of Tropical highlands. The trek as it begins from Nayapul takes the rural villages' foot trails. We then follow the villages of Ulleri to reach Ghorepani. From Ghorepani, our trail first ascends towards Poonhill. Thereafter, we descend towards Ghandruk to Tadapani village. The route to Poonhill is Nayapul-Ulleri-Ghorepani-Poonhill- Tadapani-Ghandruk-Syauli Bazaar. The initial stretch takes on the steep staircases created by piling stones on top of one another. The route is filled with small hamlets of Gurung people mostly. The vegetation shifts from Subtropical to Tropical as you complete the ascend. While there are some switchback ascents during the traverse, this is a beginner trek with a short duration of walking each day.


Best Time for Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking

Best time for Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking Of the 12 months in the year, 3 months boast an amazing weather window for trekking in Nepal. Spring which begins in March and lasts till May is the most favored time for Poonhill trekking. Autumn months are another best time for trekking to Poonhill. Autumn months usually last from the end of September until mid-December. Winter time in Nepal is also favorable for trekking which occurs from December to February.

On that note, the Summer months(June-August) is the monsoon period in Nepal which creates monsoon rain. Occasional rain showers make the trail slippery and obstruct the Himalayan views. That being said, trekking can be done during this time. The best weather for the Poonhill trek is during Autumn(September- December) and Spring(March-May). Also, winter trekking to Poonhill is doable. While the temperature during winter months drops to an extreme level, we can arrange for a trek during those times. Despite the cold and snowy pattern, the weather during these months is excellent. It is advised to carry warm gear and a sleeping bag for the night if you are trekking during the winter.


Food and Beverage in Poonhill Trek

Thea inclusive package of trek to Poonhill includes 3 times meals. These include breakfast before your trek begins at the hotel, lunch at a day stopover, and dinner after you reach your night stopover. Meals during Poonhill trekking can range from a wide variety of cuisines. The most popular dishes available during the trek are Rice, Lentil, Soup, Veg curry, and pickle. This is a Nepali dish popularly called Daal Bhaat.

Additionally, there is a range of Chinese, Indian, Italian, French, and other cuisines available in the teahouses. Noodles, Mashed Potatoes, French Fries, Pies, Pasta, Cutlets, and others are available in most places. Please make sure to inform us of your meal preferences.


Hotels in Poon Hill Trek

Annapurna region is home to the typical hilly communities of Gurungs and Magars. The area surrounding the Poonhill trekking trail is filled with Gurung and Magar villages. Ghorepani Poonhill trek is a teahouse trek with you hopping from one village to another for your stay. The stopovers along the treks like Ulleri, Nagthanti, Banthanti, and Ghorepani have numerous teahouses for your stay.

Accommodation in Poonhill Trek includes staying in such teahouses. Teahouses are similar to mountain lodges in the European Alps. These small wooden structure houses provide basic lodging facilities for trekkers. A typical teahouse will have twin beds with a foamed mattress. You will be provided with a pillow and quilt. These houses are usually kept warm with a Bukhara stove built in the diner of the lodge. There are hot water shower facilities available . Also, these lodges have wifi facilities .


Preparation and Fitness

In comparison with other lengthy treks in Nepal like the Annapurna Circuit Trek and Everest Base Camp Trek , the Poonhill trek is short and easygoing. That being said, a certain level of fitness and preparation is paramount. On average, you will be hiking for at least 6-7 hours each day after Nayapul. Additionally, you will be gaining about 4-500 meters in elevation each day. Cardio exercises and Endurance training can be helpful to comfortably complete the traverse. Cardio exercises provide the stamina required for long hours of trek while endurance training provides muscle strength.

As considered by many, the Difficulty of the Poonhill trek is easy with a short span of duration. The traverse can be completed within a week at most. The most difficult part of the trek is the initial stretch from Nayapul to Ghorepani. It includes hiking via steep staircases and mountain foot trails. As you adjust to the higher elevation, you will feel comfortable walking. We recommend you begin your exercises at least a month before your travel dates.

Both of these permits can be obtained in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Your trekking agent can guide you in obtaining these permits.


Poonhill Trek Itinerary

The famous itinerary for Poonhill includes the classic Nayapul- Ulleri-Ghorepani-Poonhill route. This route is pretty straightforward with steep ascents upon reaching Ulleri.
