All our Poon Hill trek options

The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is the ideal first time trek in Nepal. Both the length and the altitude of this trek are relatively modest, and can be done in under a week. You'll hike through authentic villages and beautiful forests to one of the most stunning view points in the Nepal Himalayas, Poon Hill. The mountain scape on the top, looking out across the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges makes you long for more!

As a trekking agency, we work with the best trekking companies in Nepal. You’ll be looked after from your arrival in Kathmandu until the moment you finish your journey. Our local team has lots of experience on the Poon Hill trek and they will make sure your trek runs smoothly. Our team leader in Nepal, Chhatra, emphasizes that the Poon Hill trek is the quickest way to experience the grandeur of the Himalayas without using up all your holidays. “You can trek to Poon Hill and experience the local culture as well as seeing some of the highest peaks in the Himalayas”, he says. “It’s also a relatively easy trek. Most treks in Nepal are high altitude. The Poon Hill trek itinerary doesn't exceed 3210 meters, which is the highest point on top of Poon Hill. That makes the trip accessible to most hikers." Note that, despite the low difficulty, it's not allowed to do the trek without guide.

Poon Hill Trek Cost

The Poon Hill trek can be done in 5 days from and back to Kathmandu. The trailhead is close to Pokhara and our two Poon Hill options are attractive in terms of price. At Bookatrekking.com we offer two distinct packages. The 7-day trip is a longer version of our Poon Hill trek itinerary, where you hike a loop in the foothills of the Annapurnas. The 5-day short version is the hike to Poon Hill and you'll hike the same route back. Travel from and back to Kathmandu is in both cases by tourist bus. Before and after the trek you stay in a hotel in beautiful Pokhara. Let’s take a closer look at these options.

An important note to make is that both Ghorepani Poon Hill tours include the salary, food, accommodation and insurance for the guides and porters. This sounds logical but not every company makes these arrangements for their crew on the ground.

Prices of flights to Kathmandu vary, but Tribhuvan International Airport is well-served by some of the Gulf state airlines, such as Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways. You can find a flight from Europe for less than 800 EUR whereas you may find a deal for around 1000 EUR from the east coast of the USA. Nepal is a very affordable country. A good quality accommodation can be found for less than 50 EUR and eating in local restaurants is generally cheap and very tasty.

Poon Hill trek accommodation

In recent times, trekking in Nepal has become increasingly popular, resulting in the establishment of numerous tea houses along the trekking routes in the country. The better-known the route you choose, the higher the quality of the available tea houses. Consequently, the accommodations and lodges along the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek provide excellent value for your money. Expect amenities like modern toilets, hot showers, and, in some cases, even wireless internet at lower elevations. It's important to mention that there might be an extra fee for using these facilities.
