This Ghorepani Poon Hill 4 Days Trek route is beautiful and the trekking is easier in months when there is no rain or snow. So, the best time would be from September to November (autumn) and March to May (spring). In these months, the climate remains clearer and the temperature remains moderate. Only the morning and evenings are a bit frosty, leaving the days perfectly clear for splendid views of the mountains and surroundings.

The trail gets busier in the spring and autumn time however monsoon and winter is somewhat calmer.

The climatic condition of Poonhill is pleasant throughout the year, but somehow in the winter months, the temperature of Ghorepani drops below zero degrees. The minimum temperature of Poon Hill gets to -4 degrees in January. Poon Hill has quite pleasant and suitable weather. If you want to trek during the monsoon season, make sure you watch the weather forecast. And pack accordingly in order to make your trekking experience smooth and comfortable.

The Altitude of Ghorepani

Trekking to the mountains means there is always one factor at play and i.e. the altitude. Trekking to high altitude can be risky for anyone and can fall a victim to altitude sickness. But do not worry. This risk of altitude sickness in Poon hill is quite low. It is because; you will ascend to the maximum height up to 2,874 meters only.

Furthermore, with such low altitude along the treks, there is a rare chance that the altitude will make your Poonhill trek difficult.
