Tour Overview

One of the most well-known and convenient treks is the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. Most visitors to Nepal choose this fast and pleasant trip to gain new experiences. The majority of visitors come because the journey offers spectacular mountain vistas. In addition, visitors can learn about Gurung and Magar culture by immersing in their unique customs and way of life.

Visitors can see numerous notable Nepalese mountain views while on the trip, including Dhaulagiri (8167 m), Annapurna south (7119 m), fishtail (6993 m), Nilgiri south, Singa, Annapurna (8091 m), and many others. Walking along the trail from the first day of your adventure until you reach your destination makes you happier.

Your travel will be pleasurable thanks to the Rhododendron forest, the national flower of Nepal. The travel duration is amazing because of the variety of wildlife and rare plant species. In addition, tourists are forced to touch and drink water to relive their challenging journey by a natural waterfall and milky-looking river.

Travellers won’t find any transportation options once they arrive at Ulleri. To get from one place to another, they should utilize their feet. The journey will be challenging and encourage travellers to learn something new. You may experience foot pain and hunger while moving with your feet. Additionally, altitude sickness and issues can affect some visitors.

It’s a rare situation where you suffer from foot swelling. The Nepalese proverb reads, “There is a path where there is a strong will.” Similar to this, travellers with tremendous determination can achieve their aims.

After finally arriving at a vantage point on Poon Hill (3210m), tourists can explore the dawn and forget the discomfort they experienced while travelling. Instead, travellers will be delighted by the heavenly sunrise view over the Himalayas. 

Best time to Trek Ghorepani Poonhill 

Autumn (September to November) and spring (March to May) are the best times of year for the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. This time of the year is bright and pleasant, with breathtaking scenery.

The benefits and drawbacks of trekking in Nepal in the spring are the same as any other springtime activity: lovely blooming flowers, good weather, and the possibility of an early-morning chill.

In Nepal, autumn is the ideal time for hiking and trekking. After the monsoon season has ended, you can almost always expect sunshine and clear sky all day, notwithstanding the possibility of a few chilly afternoons.
