Travelling is always exciting and is the same for me. I love traveling. I am a travel freak. I have visited 20 different nations all around. This time was for Nepal. I went to Nepal, and yes, I did trekking to the viewpoint, Ghorepani Poon Hill Viewpoint. The experience was amazing. I had booked the trip with Nepal Trek Adventure and Expedition, and I was assigned the guide, named Rajan. Rajan is a funny guy, you know! He made my journey so appealing and he was so different but attractive in nature that he filled my experience with a lot more humor, funny jokes and rather some man-to-man talks. The time just flew away with encounter to those high mountain peaks, hills, cascades, stone ways, taps, hotels, clusters of settlements, and many more. Food was also delicious and lip-smacking. I truly enjoyed the overall journey. And hence, it filled me with the desire to travel to Nepal again and again, and wander around different Himalayan and Hilly magnificence. I loved Nepal and Nepal Trek Adventure. Appreciate it!
Ghorepani, what a beautiful place it is. Nepal is truly a jewel with carved diamonds of nature and artistic beauty. Literally, my words are not enough to explain the beauty that it beholds. I did 3 Days Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek in Nepal. And of course, it was amazing. As the journey headed, we moved to the place called Hile, on the first day, from Pokhara. There we spent the night with typical Nepali food and dance and a lot of enjoyment. The next day, we headed straight to Ghorepani. The initial path up to Ulleri was the most difficult time of the day. Those steep paths, ugh, don’t want to remember too! Though, the experience was of a lifetime! With harsh 8 hours of walk, we reached Ghorepani. We stayed in a hotel named Kamala Hotel. The hotel was amazing; people were amazing, and the food..! Oh my god! Those Himalayan tastes of food just stroke my tongue. I could never forget that taste of meat and unique-styled spinach. Anyways, we spent the night there. The next day, early in the morning, at about 04:00 AM, we started our journey to Poon Hill. We walked straight through vertical ladders and reached the viewpoint. Those ladders were worthy of climbing, for such an incredible from the top. Encompassing mountain ranges of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail Mountain), Hiunchuli, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Gangapurna were so beautiful. Most beautiful was the view when the sun's first light fell in them. Wowwwww! After spending some minutes there on viewpoint, for photos and videos, strolled down to the hotel. We had breakfast and started to move on. Our destination was Pokhara. We walked and walked and walked. And with hours of ups and downs, we reached Ghandruk. It took around 9 hours to reach Ghandruk, from Ghorepani. From there, we caught the jeep, straight to Pokhara. I reached Pokhara and stayed there in a hotel. Here ends my Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek! Everything was awesome. Highly recommended trek and the trekking company, NTA!
I returned back from my Annapurna Base Camp Trek last month. While I was in Pokhara, I had a second thought about exploring adventure activity. I consulted with my guide, and he told me about different adventure activities, and the safest was caving. I wanted to do a safe but interesting experience though. We moved from Pokhara and stopped in Bandipur. It is what they called. Here we were going to do caving activity. We headed on and on for about an hour and reached there. We showed the entrance slip to the doorman and moved on. The cave was dark enough. It was hard enough to see things there, but after some time, we could see. We used torchlight too. The experience we got was amazing. Darkness was so beautiful there. Some steps were slippery but were enjoyable and full of fun. Thank you, Rajan, for organizing this caving practice so immediately and so nicely! Just enjoyed the trip a lot! Every moment spent there, exploring the cave and the elegance was more than my imagination. Highly recommended adventure and of course the Nepal trek Team!
I went on a family vacation with my wife and 2 young kids in Nepal. We decided to explore the adventure of Nepal so choose caving adventure for our destination place. For this adventure activity, Nepal Trek Adventure Team helped us in every possible way. They provided us with every information and great service of food, accommodation, gears, and most importantly, a guide, who could lead us through the way. We loved their service a lot and that friendly environment was just heartwarming. The owner (Binod) and the guide (Krishna) are so active that you yourself will get energized watching their energy and dedication towards their work. If next time we visit Nepal then we will surely get connected with NTA Family only. There is no way, we gonna look for other trekking and tour agencies. Thank you, all the team members from the bottom of heart! Kudos!
Actually, I knew nothing about Ghorepani poon hill trek and went with an empty mind. There was a lot of things to know about the trek and all the curiosity were filled by my guide. I am so happy that I went to this trip. I filled my mind with the beautiful scenarios of Nepal and will never forget the involvement in this journey. The mountains, the forests, the people, the flowers, the sunrise, the guide, everything was best about the trek. Nepal Trek Adventures is very experienced agency fulfilling all the words mentioned in their packages and providing the best deal in reasonable price. I would highly recommend NTA for Ghorepani Poon Hill trek.
When my friend suggested about this trek, there were many doubts in me. After talking to Mr. Binod, all the concepts were clear about the trip. With all the vibrant perceptions, I went for the ghorepani poon hill trek. The trek was so beautiful that all the negativity in me settled down and all the positivity arose in me. I felt so stress-free and calm after going to the trek and NTA managed everything so perfectly that I would recommend NTA to all my closed ones. I’m so glad that I chose NTA over other trekking agencies. Thanks to my friend for suggesting this beautiful journey, and thanks to NTA for making it possible at an ease.
Everything about the trek was fully awesome. The trek gave the best view of Annapurna mountain range. The loveliest thing about the trek was the sunrise. I had never seen such beautiful sunrise in my lifetime. The tour gave a memory for lifetime. The hospitality of Nepal Trek Adventures was also great. Everything was well managed in a professional way. The journey could not be so beautiful without NTA. I got a remembrance and well-mannered friend through this trip. I am grateful for everything I got by means of the journey.
Among all the times spent in Nepal, the best times were spent with NTA team in the Ghorepani poon hill trek. The team created a friendly environment and treated us very well. During the trek, one of my friend got injured and we all were so scared but the guide handled us very well and took full care of our injured friend. Though the friend could not travel for some days, and we had to extend some days in the tour, the guide always made sure we are not very worried and we were comfortable with all our needs. He took care of the injured friend and us as well throughout the journey and made our journey more beautiful. Thank you NTA for this amazing experience of Ghorepani poon hill trek.
I loved the professionalism of NTA. How can a team be so professional and so friendly at a same time? You are beyond expectations NTA and the trek towards Ghorepani Poon Hill was also beyond expectations. Thank you for arranging the tour so gorgeously and in such a perfect way. The trek was so wonderful and the guide was really informative. The guide seemed to me well experienced and very enthusiastic. The rhododendron forests and the mountain views were out of the world and best part was I got to interact with the Magar community peoples in the trek and know the lifestyle and cultures in this area.
After looking at the photos of Ghorepani poon hill treks in social media, I was so excited to go to this trek. And yeah, all my excitements were fulfilled with the beautiful dawn view and the rhododendron forests and local cultures in village area. I got everything beyond my expectations. I would recommend NTA to everyone for making my trip an unforgettable one and providing every service in best way possible.
The beautiful views of mountains, the beauty lying in the village of Nepal and everything given by the trek was worth all the challenges and tiredness I felt during the journey. Nepal is sanctified by nature itself to have such stunning sceneries. After getting the closest views of mountains, I also wanted to get the glance of mount Annapurna and other neighboring mountains from a view point. We waited for the sunrise for some time and it was just worth waiting too. Everything about this tour was wonderful. I had already been with Nepal trek adventures twice before but their service was always the best. Hope NTA agency become more successful in future.
After all the busy schedules in my country, I really needed a relaxing vacation to freshen up my mind. After having a glance at the golden sunset, I seriously forgot all the tough times I ever had to go through and provided an inner satisfaction. Ghorepani poon hill is really a beautiful destination. I was so happy with the time schedules and arrangements of Nepal Trek Adventures for this trek. They fulfilled all the things mentioned in package on time and in the best price possible.
I was not sure about going for any trek in mountain region of Nepal due to my average physical fitness... But this short trek made a dream come true for people like me. I already informed the guide about my health condition and I was quite unsure about going for the trek. But their voice was really encouraging me to go for this trek. At all my demotivated times, he took care of me and convinced me that I could do this... Ghorepani Poon Hill trek gave the stunning experience of travelling to the Annapurna region of Nepal and also brought up the inner strength in me. Thank you NTA for taking special care of me in every difficult situations.
Knowing that Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is a short trek, I didn’t expect much from this trek but oh my god, the Poon hill trek was more than expectation... Getting such a beautiful view of mountains and villages of Nepal and also the rhododendron forests was just amazing… It was much more beautiful due to the guidance of NTA team. I felt like they were my friends as I felt comfortable with them and could get information about everything, I wanted to know about Ghorepani Poonhill trek and Himalayas. This was just a short trek and gave so much fun, how beautiful would the full trek be? I would surely try greater treks like Annapurna circuit trek or Everest Base camp Trek with Nepal Trek Adventures again.

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:
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.
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.
