Useful Info

How Difficult is the Trek?

Poonhill trek is an easy trek compared to other higher altitude treks in Nepal. However, you cannot take the steep climb up to the stone staircase (3381 steps in total) from Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani lightly. There is various duration ranging from 4 to 7 days for poon hill trek. This depends on one’s preference and also on one’s physical fitness level. It varies on how much you like to stop to take rest and also to enjoy the views. Generally, a 4 days trek is perfect. But if you do not acclimatize well to the altitude or if you have a physical limitation, taking a longer duration trek is a smarter bet.

What to Carry?

Packing wise has a lot to do in making your trekking experience smooth and comfortable. Since Poonhill 4-day trek is a short trek you do not have to pack a lot. However, make sure you carry a good pair of waterproof hiking shoes for a long hours walk. Do not forget to carry a pair of flip-flops that you can slip into at tea houses. Dress in layers so that you can adjust to the temperature from lower to a higher region. Trekking poles can come in handy for support while climbing and descending. It is wise to carry a sleeping bag with a liner. For monsoon season make sure to carry insect repellent for mosquitoes and leeches that you may encounter on the trails. Also, do not skip on sunscreen. You burn faster at high altitudes. Hence carry a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin.

Itinerary

Today, there will be a mixture of a bus drive and a trek. First, you will head out to Nayapul (1070 meters). This ride is quite pleasant and lasts 2 hours only. Nayapul is also where many trekkers gather to trek. This is the entry point to many other treks like Annapurna Base Camp Trek, Khopra Danda Trek, Mardi Himal trek and plenty others in this region. After that, you will go to Ulleri on a 4-5 hours trek.

You will head out to the place with the largest rhododendron forests today. This place is called Ghorepani. It will take about 6-7 hours for you to reach Ghorepani(2860 meters). The first part of your trek will take you along an uphill ride to Ulleri. The walk up to Ulleri is around 2 hours long and exclusively uphill. From Ulleri, you will walk around 4 hours or so to get to Ghorepani. Ghorepani is set beautifully amidst the mountains of the Annapurna region. It also has close access to Poon Hill, which is an awesome hill station in the Annapurna region.

Today, you will wake up early in the morning, this is because you will head out to Poon Hill before the sun is up. You will trek around 1 hour or so before you reach Poon Hill (3210 meters). The trail to Poon Hill is almost elusively full of stairs. After you reach there, you will get to see glorious views of mountains like Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Manaslu, Machhapuchhre etc. You will also get to see some staggering sunrise views from there.

On your way to Naya Pul from Ghandruk, we get to enjoy the amazing hilly landscape of ACAP region. You will hike along the side of Modi Khola for 4-5 hours before reaching Birethanti. This will be one of the most pleasant walks of the trip. This day’s trek will be mostly flat. After trekking for an hour to 90 minutes from Birethanti, you will get to Nayapul.
