Luxury Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek Overview

Greatest pleasing short trekking in Nepal.

Luxury Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek brings trekkers to stunning Annapurna trekking trails of classic Poonhill covered by snowy holy Himalayas in 4 or 5 days.

Luxury Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is the supreme charming trekking in Nepal. No belief? Poon Hill proves Annapurna's legendary reputation as the paradise of the Himalayas.

Those kinds of Adventurers who have not trekked to the snow mountains previously also knew about the Poon Hill Trek.

There are so many causes that backdrop the poon hill trek honored- it is Nepal's historic well-recognized trekking.

Poon hill is located 42  miles northwest of Pokhara. Each Day 180-degree unbroken views of whole Annapurnas, glacial melted rivers, pleasant campsite, and flowering forests. trekkers can observe more than 12 Himalayan peaks, two of them very the tallest Himalayas to traverse.

A series of Hilly areas create an easy-moderate trek extending over 5 days.

that significance has short trekking days with sharp stony uphill and downhill. But it's the beginner trek who has not higher elevated alpine trekking previously.

it's guaranteed that Poonhill trek adventures are very valuable. Every day is exactly like a postcard scenery with the new Himalayas that travelers dreamed of. what makes those Himalayas snow-covered and feed Modi rivers. rarely trekkers can observe animal statues on the white surface of the Himalayas.

Flowers in the Poonhill Trek:

The Ghorepani poon hill trek is reputed for its Rhododendron flowers in the world. Rhododendron flowers bloom normally during pre-monsoon. please a glimpse into the Poonhill trek with the National flower rhododendron.

What trekkers Love about Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek:

1. The forest of flowers:

The Main Cause for trekkers to recall and an intense feeling of the trek is charming Rhododendron flowers. when you reach at the tophill at ghorepani see the multicolor valley at the foot of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Himalayas. Trekkers have witnessed 32 different pinks, white and red colors of flowers.

A shadow trails below the forest of Rhododendron flowers bring you inner beauty. a full day of trekking in the flower forest surprises travelers about the drastic changes in flora and fauna in Annapurnas.

fresh Himalayan air and the smell of rhododendron flowers make trekkers sleep for a while inside those forests.

2. Poonhill Sunrise Hike And Ulleri Trek:

Poonhill is easy trekking but the steep trek to Ulleri village gives you strength for the next level.in 1.25 miles trekkers gain 1312 feet. This hike not only teaches the new trial but also brings travelers the scenic area that trekkers did not dream of previously.

Tourists like to approach the Himalayas zones while sunrise hike along Poonhill. Trekkers nearly view the chopper or bird fly views of Kalaigandaki valley, and Deurali flower forests while hiking Poonhill. Trekkers can observe Ghorepani and the way of Tadapani for their next step.

When few trekkers gently hike along Poonhill, less tree border, hiking lower alpine and they feel a low level of oxygen but they look after the high alpine hiking in the Himalayas.

When trekkers at Poonhill Tower, Himalayas, and rivers, backdrop hills amaze you. The awesome Himalayas make appreciation of your hiking holiday. For many trekkers, it's a short time of peaceful mirroring in their whole lifetime.

3. Encounter the Lifestyle of Gurung and Pun ethnic groups.

Poonhill is not just hiking. The hiking to the hills taught trekkers an unbelievable trip of faith tackled by countryside Nepalese. the childhood to old aged locals wears a typical dress in Ulleri and Ghandruk Villages. it was so incredible to observe the Gurung tradition which cannot see another world.

What trekkers do not love in Poonhilll trek:

1. The truth is you cannot trek in natural trails on the 5th day:

Trekking in natural trails is a unique desire of the awe-inspiring hiking journey for many travelers.

Sad to Say, the poon hill trek does not provide the chance on 1st day to begin part of the trails and 5th day to end part of the trails. Hile and Ghandruk being the big ancient villages people except for tourism like new changes in trails so made rough road trails. So Mission Himalayas ZZtreks make a sensitive trekking routes drive until hile at the beginning time of trek and drive from Syaulibazaar after trek complete not to make bore for our luxury Poonhill trekkers.

2. Lack of Accommodation in Tadapani during High season

Tadapani village is inside the conservation Area property so villagers cannot infrastructure on their own. There are limitations by the ACAP to construct the buildings. Just 5 to 6 hotels there is the capacity also very few as compared to Ghorepani village. So few trekkers cannot find lodges for sleep and need to do long treks until Ghandruk village or chuile. many trekkers complained previously due to lack of lodges after their tiring trekking. So we suggest our Luxury Poonhill trekkers book your trekking holiday at least 3 months before the trip. So that Mission Himalaya is Able to confirm your accommodation in Tadapani for your safe trip.

Lots of trekkers trek from Hile or Tikhedhung to upper Ghorepani on the second day. |Mission Himalaya Treks suggest to our trekkers it's not a good option and not pleasant.

In our luxury Poonhill trek, we divide that inconvenient section so trekkers can have easy on the 2nd day. today lots of trekking routes follow the shadow and attractive wooden forests. That makes the trekking more quiet with the Bhrungdi stream small sound with shadow trails so fealing the natural routes. Most of the trekkers are pleasing section of the trek also today.

Even though it's a long journey but not as difficult as yesterday from Tikhedhunga to Ulleri. That means the hiking route is not sleepily up so trekkers can enjoy nature. No hurry Up? Due to the small portion of the trekking, many trekkers are able to finish the trek before the afternoon meal. So visitors can hang over in Ghorepani.

Honestly, Ghorepani is a stylish modern small village in which teahouses are well developed. Many shops, Bookstore, inside-hot shower rooms, and Pun Museum can visit in the afternoon.

As compared to our two-day trekking today's trek will be long and arduous. Commonly when hikers trekked in Nepal Himalayas, they go to the higher elevation or viewpoints before sunset or sunrise to capture the best scene because normally the weather is fantastic in the morning. Today also get ready around 1 hour before sunrise for a morning hike to Poonhill before breakfast.

Remember that all the hiking routes are well with rocky well organized trails. Winter will be slippery due to cover by snow. after 1 hour of difficult hiking, you reach Poonhill and take around 30 minutes to capture photos. then we can back to the teahouse for breakfast. Note that the exact time of sunrise is different each day so confirm with your guide after dinner in the previous day.

The entrance ticket for the Poonhill trek is prepared by your guide. Please bring some cash with you for a coffee break in Poonhill with the beautiful Himalayas.
The second thing for your exact timing of breakfast in Ghorepani does not to forget to tell your guide during your previous night's dinner time. so that after sunrise in Poonhill and back to hotel you can have suddenly taken breakfast.

Few trekkers trek to Ghandruk instead of Tadapani but we do not suggest you trek Ghandruk at the same day because it's too long. After breakfast in Ghorepani, trekkers need to climb to Deurali almost similar trails to Ghorepani to Poonhill. Until Deurali the trails offer the eyecatching scene on a clear day. It's the best trekking trail in spring for flower lovers as compared to all trails in the Annapurna regions.

After the Deurali passes trekkers need to trek downwards along the Murlung stream. You can observe the small pleasing waterfall in this stream. If trekkers trek in summer this part of the route will more slippery and the waterfall is so big. Honestly, those part of trekking trails is as pretty as a picture so ideal trek for all travelers.

Take lunch in a valley or gorge of Banthanti at the bank of Murlung stream. again trekkers need to trek alongside the rhododendron jungle till Tadapani. the trail will gradually down half-hour and sharp uphill for half an hour. In this trek, Tadapani offers the closest view of Annapurna South and Himchuli. Also, Annapurna 3 and Fishtail can be observed from there.

The trails from Kimche to Syaulibazaar will be steep downhill so slippery in monsoon. we do not trek until Nayapul because of the new dusty roads in the trekking trails to make our treks more valuable.

Poon hill Trek Difficulty:

trekkers commonly believe the Ghorepani trek is an uncomplicated trekking route due to it is just 4 days of hiking. Many trekkers did before so they have misevaluation.

So our Luxury Poonhill trek goal is to reduce the worried regarding complication levels. we can divide the complex part into two days instead to trek Tikhedhunga to Ghorepani in 1 day. So we drive to hile due those part not nice due to new road construction. Trekkers are troubled by vertical up and down trek so Mission Himalaya think about the sherpas to bring a tourist backpack that made a very comfortable trek.
