Trip Highlights

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 Days Tour

 

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek offers Mesmerizing sunrise at Poon Hill.

Stunning views of the Himalayas.

Comparatively shorter and easier trekking is suitable for a family trek, too.

Multiplicity of landscape, biodiversity, culture, and economy within 10 kilometers of displacement.

This Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 days tour is perfect for those who don’t wish to walk for long hours but still enjoy all the wonders a mountain trekking experience has to offer. 

Most trekking on this tour occurs at lower elevations and is thus less demanding. Our expert guides help you at every step and ensure your Nepal adventure is unlike any other.

The highlight of Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 Days is the mesmerizing panoramic mountain views that you will get atop Poonhill of the Dhaulagiri Mountain Range, the Annapurna Mountain Range, Mt. Lamjung Himal, Mt. Manaslu, Nt: Ganesh and several other Himalayan Ranges and peaks. 

Both on the way up and down from Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 Days, you will be surrounded by picturesquely terraced slopes, warm villages, beautiful paddy fields, and the incredible culture and traditions of the ethnic Gurung and Magar people. 

We assure you that you must keep telling people back home about the quality time you’ll spend during this. You’ll enjoy trekking and touring in a short period, which is considered complex.

What makes Poon Hill Trek a great one?

Nepal is a country with diversified land structures. You usually have to spend ample of your busy days to know the root/foundation of the country. Many trekking and tour packages extend up to or even more than 20 days. But worry not! We have already figured out a way to provide our guests with the fullest of Nepal only within five days. 

This leads us to devise a new tour package that includes tours and treks in the Himalayan Region. Now, we have Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 Days as the best option.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 Days in Annapurna Region is one of the shortest trekkings in the area. But it provides you ample reasons to dive deep into trekking. You won’t feel better anyway than loving the moment in this wonderland. 

While provwon’t some fantastic close-up views of the sacred mountain Machhapuchhre(Fishtail) and Annapurna-South, it also gives you a living of Nepali Villagers. A refreshing three days allow an insight into mountain life.

Our destination is the beautiful and ornate village of Ghandruk, home to the Annapurna Conservation Area Project. Here, you can visit the project to discover firsthand the conservation work. Along the way, you will see the beautiful sceneries of the Himalayan ecosystem. 

The mesmerizing beauty of the mountains will enthrall you from the start until the end of the trip. If you are worried about the altitude, you don’t have to. The maximum size of our trek is 3200 meters, but that’s only for a while. Don’t of time; we trek below 2700 meters altitude. This that’s is quite typical for human health.

Best Time to Trek the Ghorepani Poonhill

The Poonhill trek is viable year-round, yet the best periods for Poonhill Trekking are the pre-monsoon season (March to May) and post-monsoon season (September to December).

The weather is favorable during these times, characterized by clear skies and moderate temperatures. Spring (March to May) showcases vibrant rhododendron forests in full bloom, while autumn (September to December) offers exceptional visibility of snow-capped peaks. It’s crucial to be aware that the monsoon season (June to August) brings heavy rainfall, making it less suitable for trekking.
