Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a great trip. It is suitable for all types of trekkers, from avid adventure lovers to family trekkers. Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek combines the pristine natural scenery of rhododendron forests with incredible Himalayan views. The mountains can be viewed and the trek becomes smoother through the rhododendron forest. Ghorepani lies in the hilly juncture below Poon Hill. Poon Hill offers a breathtaking sunrise view over the mighty peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges of the Himalayas. One route leads you to Ghandruk village and the other leads you to Jhinu, where you can enjoy the natural hot spring. Then the trek descends to Nayapul, and we drive to Pokhara.

Itenerary

Upon your arrival at Kathmandu International Airport, our representative will meet and welcome you to Nepal, then you will be transferred to the hotel. Once you finish the check-in procedure, you can rest and relax at the hotel. After a short rest, we take you on a brief tour of Thamel, the main tourist hub in Kathmandu, to make you familiar with some good restaurants, ATM's, money changers, supermarket, gear shops, and other things you might need for your trip. After a short exploration, you will be taken to our office for a trip briefing meeting. Overnight in hotel. If your arrival is late today, the tour and trip briefing will be shifted to tomorrow.
Flight Duration: 30 min. Driving Duration: 1.5 Hrs. Walking Duration: 3.5 Hrs. In the early morning, you will take an early breakfast then you will be transferred from the hotel to the Kathmandu domestic terminal to catch the flight to Pokhara. When your flight lands in Pokhara, you will be picked up and driven to the trekking starting place, Nayapul. After getting your gear sorted out for the porters, we start walking towards Tikhedhunga, the destination for today. The trail follows the Modi Khola, a beautiful serene river coming from the Annapurna Valley, and heads towards Tikhedhunga on a dirt road for most of the day today. When we reach Tikhedhunga, we will check-in at the Lodge for our overnight stay. Overnight at local lodge.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. After taking breakfast in the local Lodge, the day's trekking begins. On the first section of the walk, we trek steeply up the stone stairs to Ulleri. It takes about 2 hours to reach the beautiful village of Ulleri. Ulleri brings the first view of the snowy peaks for the day as we continue towards Banthanti, where we will stop for lunch. The walk beyond Banthanti is a forest walk to Ghorepani. Walking through the Nangethanti, we walk to Upper Ghorepani (1.5 hours), which is located at the center of the rhododendron forest, just below Poon Hill. We can enjoy a spectacular view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri peaks once we reach there. Overnight at local lodge.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. In the early morning, we will walk to the top of Poon Hill. The views of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Fishtail, Himchuli, and other peaks can be seen in a long panorama with the beautiful sunrise. To escape freezing weather, we can have tea and coffee at the top. The blooming rhododendron surrounds the landscape in spring. We return back to the Lodge to have breakfast. Then we start the trek to Tadapani with a steep uphill climb, before heading downhill to Deurali through the rhododendron and pine forest. Then the trail goes down further through a narrow path. Banthanti is our lunch point; then we walk up gradually through the forest and down steeply to the stream before making the final, steep uphill walk to Tadapani. Overnight at local lodge.
Walking Duration: 5 Hrs. After breakfast, we start the trek to Jhinu today. We walk down the trail through the forest to a small settlement just above a river. We cross a suspension bridge then trek uphill to the point where the trail goes two separate ways – one to Chhomrong and the other to Jhinu Danda. We trek all the way down to Jhinu Danda, which is the best place to spend overnight. We can enjoy the natural hot spring there, located at the edge of the Modi River that is a 20-minute walk down from the Lodge. Overnight at local lodge.
Walking Duration: 6 Hrs. Driving Duration: 1.5 Hrs. From Jhinu, we follow the ridge of the Modi Khola on its right bank. It is an easy day of walking as the trail doesn't traverse as steeply as the other days. We can see beautiful waterfalls, green farming terraces, and bee hives hanging on a cliff. We pass various tiny villages on our trek before reaching Nayapul. Once we reach Nayapul, we take a drive to Pokhara and enjoy the evening in the lake city. Overnight in hotel.

You drive back to Kathmandu which is 206 km and would take 7 hours or you can take a flight of 25 minutes on the basis of your interest. If you are driving then you will drive through beautiful highway along with mountain bending, landscape, and river basins. Once you reach Kathmandu you will be transferred to your hotel and you will have free time in which you can rest or wander around the place. Overnight at the hotel.

Today we take a walking tour of the local area to experience the historical, cultural, and spiritual riches of Kathmandu. We unveil the social and historical mysteries, see the artistic heritage and traditional crafts, and capture shots of the centuries-old monuments. You will discover some of the city's hidden places on this sightseeing tour. We explore the local market of Ason, glass bead market at Indrachowk, the oldest supermarket at New Road, Kilagal, the Hidden Stupa, etc. Then we walk to Kathmandu Durbar Square. The most unique experience in the square is a visit to the temple of the living goddess “Kumari”. Durbar Square walking tour is a perfect mixture of the culture, history, art, architecture, and traditional values prevalent in the Kathmandu Valley. When we finish sightseeing, you can return to the hotel by walking, or you can hire a rickshaw if you want to experience a ride in the 3-wheeled bicycle famous in Thamel and Kathmandu Durbar Square area. After reaching the hotel, you can rest a while and engage yourself in packing your luggage to get ready for the next day’s final departure. Overnight in hotel.
