        Altitude traveled during Ghorepani Poon Hill 3 Days Trek

        Altitude is something that everybody who treks in Nepal is frightened of. What's more, this is justifiable. Trekking in high altitude is unsafe in light of the fact that any individual who treks in high height can be influenced by altitude sickness. But the danger of height ailment in the Poon Hill district is beside zero. This is a direct result of the way that elevation ailment truly begins to incur significant damage after you have crossed the 3000-meter mark. Furthermore, during this 3 days trek, you contact the 3000-meter mark in Poon Hill and you return much lower elevation, the equivalent days. To place things into point of view, the accompanying table will give you a smart thought of the elevation of the spots in the Poon Hill trek:

        • Pokhara: 1400 meters/4593 feet
        • Nayapul: 1070 meters/3510 feet
        • Tikhedhunga: 1480 meters/4855 feet
        • Ulleri: 1960 meters/ 3460 feet
        • Ghorepani: 2874 meters/9429 feet
        • Tadapani: 2630 meters/ 8628 feet
        • Ghandruk: 1939 meters/ 6361 feet

        With places with such low altitude along your treks, is there any reason to think that the altitude will make Poon Hill trek difficult? I don’t think so. Trekking in such heights is not more problematic at all.

        3 Days Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek Best season

        Since this is a short and simple trek, you can trek consistently with not more pressure and physical strain. Be that as it may, from February, March, April, and May to September, October, November, and December are the greatest months to trek to Poon Hill. N these months, the climate and atmospheric condition remain sound and most profound, that you will be able to observe beautiful mountains and other encompassing scenarios with a lesser amount of cloudiness and a lot more of sparkling sunshine. Rainfall rates are also lesser amid these periods of time.
