This is an excellent introduction if you have yet to try Nepalese food, as some of the authentic food items in these accommodations are some of the best cuisines Nepal has to offer. Tea houses and a lodge are standard accommodations on the trek route. Upon your arrival, it's best you request your dinner so the operator has adequate to prepare it for you.

Meanwhile, you can chat with other members of the trek or travelers staying in the accommodation about the expedition. This will allow you to exchange information and prepare yourself for what’s to come. The trek is one of the short expeditions in the Annapurna region of Nepal, which takes you to one of the most famous viewpoints of the region, Poon Hill.

It is one of the best sightseeing destinations, offering sunrise and sunset along with the majestic Annapurna mountain. The rays of morning lights on glistening snow-capped peaks create a heavenly view that will melt your heart. The 7 Days Ghorepani trek encompassing Poon Hill and Ghandruk Region is also among the most traveled treks in the Annapurna region. Additionally, it is a perfect trek for couples, families, club members, students, and friends.

If you are new to trekking, then the Ghorepani trek is a thrilling introduction to the wonders of trekking in the Himalayas of Nepal. It is a more laidback and easy package designed to let you explore the scenery of traditional villages, lush forests, fertile fields, and up-close views of some of the highest peaks on the planet.

The journey begins on day one with a ride to Pokhara on a transport service of your choice. Upon your arrival in Pokhara, you will prepare for the trek ahead, and on day two, you will hop on a ride to Tikhedhunga Via Birethanti. After arriving at Tikhedhunga, on day three, you will go to Ghorepani, a Gurung village on the Annapurna slopes, via verdant hills, forests, and ethnic communities.

As you approach the village, you'll be treated to spectacular views of the Annapurna panorama. A longer hike to Poon Hill will reward you with stunning sunrise views amidst the Annapurna range's towering pinnacles.

On our fourth day, we will wake up early in the morning to watch the glorious sunrise over the mountains from Poon Hill. From this viewpoint, you can enjoy magnificent views of several mountains, such as Khansar Kang, Hiunchuli, Annapurna mountain range, Gangapurna, and Dhaulagiri. So, this will be an immense opportunity for you to enjoy the region's natural beauty and take photos to share your memories with your loved ones. After your trek to Poon Hill is complete, you will make your way to Tadapani, where you will rest and stay for the night.

The fifth day is comparably the easiest part of the trek; on this day, you will slowly descend from Tadapani to Ghandruk. You will pass through several picturesque villages and small settlements on the way. At Ghandruk, you can explore the surrounding region and immerse yourself in the local people's traditions and ways of life.

On the sixth day of our trek expedition, you will enjoy a hearty breakfast at Ghandruk, with majestic views of the Himalayan mountain range. Eventually, you will hike downhill through rice fields and local settlements to Nayapul via Syauli Bazar. Upon your arrival at the destination, we will arrange a ride for you to travel to Pokhara.

The seventh day is the last day of our journey, and we hope you have created countless memories that will last a lifetime. After you enjoy your breakfast in the hotel, we will arrange your travel back to Kathmandu.

A Family Trek Suitable For All Age Groups

Unlike other challenging and lengthy treks in the Annapurna Region, such as Annapurna Base Camp and Annapurna Circuit, the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek provides a pleasurable trekking experience as you don't have to hike steep trails in the rugged Himalayan terrain for hours every day.

Poon Hill, at an altitude of 3210 m, being the highest point of the trek, you and your family won't have to suffer from altitude sickness at all. The comfortable trek route allows you to enjoy the rich vegetation and landscape of the region.

The trek is easy, slow, and comfortable, making it an ideal trekking journey for those traveling with their family, kids, and elderly.

Useful InformationGood to know before you travel

Accommodation, Food, Best Time & Important Information

Lodge & Tea House

During your trek expedition in the Annapurna region of Nepal, you will stay in local teahouses along the route. Simply put, a tea house is a guest house or lodge providing trekkers with authentic meals and service.

Generally, these establishments provide twin rooms or dormitories to share with your partners or fellow travelers. Some rooms have attached bathrooms, but you must have a shared toilet and bathroom in other teahouses.

Besides, they usually have squat-style or western-style toilets, and the bathrooms have cold water. But, you can use hot water to bathe yourself if you pay a specific amount to the operators of the tea houses.

The bedroom consists of comfortable beds and blankets and does not feature any artificial heating. So, It is recommended that you bring your sleeping bags because it gets cold in winter.

However, since tourism has flourished in the region for several decades, facilities in some teahouses might be better than those in remote areas.

Regardless, most establishments will have a stove that warms the dining area. Moreover, the tea houses are powered by solar or electricity. So you will be able to charge your gadgets during your stay.

Meals during 7 Days Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

As you commence the 7 days Ghorepani to Poonhill trek, the route will take you to higher elevations of the Himalayan region. As a result, your body will need nutritious food to help sustain your strength and immunity.

But you must not worry about it because we will arrange your stay in the best accommodation establishments that serve fresh, tasty, hygienic, and nutritious meals.

The menu in the tea houses will consist of Asian, Western, and traditional food items. However, as we gain altitude in the trek, the menu will get shorter as resources are scarce in remote areas of the Himalayas.

So, we highly recommend you consume fresh vegetables and liquids such as lemon, green, garlic, and ginger at high altitudes to boost your immunity and prevent altitude sickness.

On the other hand, we suggest you not consume caffeinated items, dairy items, and alcohol in high amounts.

To provide a comprehensive look at the trek's menu items, we have curated a list to give you an idea of the meals.

7 Days Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek In Different Seasons

Spring (March to May):

The season of spring is ideal for travelers to explore the Annapurna region and cherish the beauty of Ghandruk and Poon Hill. As a result, trekkers worldwide prefer to visit during this time of the year because of the weather conditions. The region experiences low rainfall, and the climate is cool and timid.

The temperature in Poon Hill at this time usually ranges between 5°C to 15 °C, but it's comparatively warmer in the lower regions. The spring season usually starts in March and ends in May, and the trek route at this time is filled with blooming rhododendrons and other exotic flowers.

Summer (June to August):

Your trek will fall in the summer if you plan to commence the expedition between July and August. At this time of the year, the temperature is high in the region with occasional rainfall.

As a result, the trek routes can be slippery and wet. So, it’s best to plan accordingly and bring the necessary equipment to assist you during the hike in tricky terrains. This includes trekking poles, raincoats, waterproof clothing, and reliable hiking boots.

Regardless of minor issues the occasional rain might cause, it also provides the needed refreshment in the region. This leads to increased lush vegetation on the trek route.

Besides, during the summer season, the temperature in the higher altitudes usually ranges from 15°C to 25°C during the daytime. However, it will get colder as the sun sets and the temperature drops between 5°C and 15°C.

Autumn (September to November)

Apart from Spring, Autumn is also regarded to be a favorable time for travelers to commence their journey to Poon Hill. The mild wind, low precipitation, and moderate temperatures make commencing your trip in this season comfortable and pleasurable.

Moreover, the clear and pristine skies give you glorious views of the surrounding mountains. Also, the night sky is clear and cloud-free, offering you beautiful views of the night sky.

As Autumn starts in early September, the temperature is mild and warm, reaching 20°C during the day and around 5 °C at night.

In terms of vegetation, the green vegetation in the region starts fading to a shade of amber and gold, which adds a unique aesthetic to the landscape.

Besides, significant festivals in Nepal, such as Dashain and Tihar, also fall during Autumn. So, it provides an immense opportunity for you to experience the culture and traditions of our country.

Winter (December to February)

Trekking in the winter is less popular than in other seasons of the year, but the weather conditions during this time excite most travelers worldwide.

The coldest time in Nepal falls between December to February. The temperature usually can drop as low as -5 °C at higher altitudes.

Regardless of the cold and unpredictable weather, the views of the snow-capped mountains are the most majestic and glorious. Moreover, the number of tourists could be higher, and the tea house and lodge are least busy in winter.

This might encourage some travelers to commence their journey during this season. However, we recommend you do it with others and suggest a guide or an experienced trekker supervise you.

Physical Condition & Experience

The 7 days Ghorepani to Poonhill trek is one of Nepal's most popular easy-grade treks.

During the expedition, you will walk for 5 to 6 hours daily, with timely breaks to rest and enjoy the majestic views of the surrounding landscape.

The routes are relatively easy as they ascend and descend gently in the terrains of the region. However, hiking at higher elevations can be physically demanding compared to at lower altitudes.

So, you should have average physical fitness and a solid will to motivate yourself to conquer the trails when you start hiking at the higher elevation of the trek.

Besides, if you have a pre-existing medical condition, it is best to inform us before booking the trip so we can assess you and analyze if you are fit for the expedition.

Group/Single Trekking in Nepal

We at Outfitters Nepal organize both private and group treks. Our dedicated staff members can coordinate all group sizes.

A group of 10 or more trekkers will be assigned with a team lead or a guide and multiple porters. It is important to note that each porter can only carry a combined weight of 18kg.

Travel Insurance for Poon Hill Trek

The 7 days Ghorepani to Poon Hill trek does not impose a high risk of altitude sickness. But, due to the possibility of unforeseen events like illness, injury, sudden climate change, and natural disasters, you must get travel insurance.

All travelers who want to commence the expedition must provide us with a copy of their insurance policy certificate to OutFitters Nepal. The insurance will cover most medical and emergency arrangements during the trek. This includes emergency evacuation and helicopter rescue.

So, for a safe and convenient travel experience, please ensure the insurance company covers these medical costs before booking a trip with us.

Tourist Visa in Nepal

Most foreign travelers, except Indian citizens, require a visa when entering Nepal. The visa procedure is quite simple. You can receive a visa on arrival at the Nepal border regional offices or international airports in Nepal.

For instance, citizens of the SAARC countries and Chinese citizens get a free visa. On the other hand, some countries might not be entitled to receive a free visa. This includes countries such as Ghana, Nigeria, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Liberia, and Somalia.

To apply for a visa, all you need is a passport-size photo and a passport that has been valid for at least six months. Besides, it is essential to note that children under ten will receive free visas.

However, check the immigration rules at https://www.immigration.gov.np/ for the latest information, as regulations can change without immediate notice.

Currency Exchange in Nepal | USD to NPR

The local currency of Nepal is the Nepali Rupee, and it is accessible in Nepal to exchange foreign currencies as numerous financial institutions across the country provide the service.

Besides, we highly recommend you bring cash instead of a traveler’s cheque as you won’t face any unnecessary financial hassle during your visit.

Also, you can withdraw cash in Nepal using your debit or credit card from ATMs in major cities such as Kathmandu and Pokhara.

How much luggage will the Potters Carry during the Poon Hill Trek?

During your 7 days Ghorepani to Poon Hill trek, we assign one porter for every two trekkers during the expedition. As previously mentioned, a porter can only carry a combined 18 kg. Therefore, the weight limitation for your luggage for the expedition will be 9 kg.

Besides, we encourage you to bring additional small backpacks that you can carry to contain essential documents and valuables. Moreover, you can leave your non-essential luggage at OutFitters Nepal for free.

Trek Safely

We at OutFitters Nepal highly value our client’s safety and security. So, to ensure your well-being throughout the trek, we have followed strict codes of conduct such as:

  • First aid trained crew and staff members.
  • We check if all the necessary gear and equipment have been brought along.
  • The trek leader has the authority to continue or end the expedition if a trekker falls ills.
  • Our trekking team consists of people who have tremendous endurance and physical strength.
  • We will be hiking in groups for better communication and coordination.

Keeping The Trek Routes Clean

As a responsible company in the Nepali travel scene, we are highly committed to the sustainability of the environment by ensuring the protection of our ecosystem.

As the tourism industry in Nepal has flourished throughout the years, it has also negatively impacted the environment.

At OutFitters Nepal, we try our best to conduct eco-tourism as we leave zero footprints in Nepal. Through years of research and analysis, we organize tours that don't degrade the environment and benefit local communities and travelers.

What to Expect in a Teahouse in 7 Days Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Are There Hot Showers?

Yes, hot shower facilities are available in tea houses throughout the trek, but you must pay a specific charge. It is expensive as you will be charged around $3 to $5 per hot shower.

Gas canisters are brought from cities via potters and pack animals. The price for a hot shower may vary at lodges in higher altitudes.

We recommend you save expenses, conserve energy, and not shower too often with hot water.

Will I suffer from Altitude Sickness?

It is doubtful that you might suffer from altitude sickness during the 7 days Ghorepani to Poon Hill trek.

The highest point on the expedition is Poon Hill at 3,210m, and you will only spend a few hours at the elevation. So, it won’t have any effects on your health.

However, in any case, if you experience some issues, please inform the trek guide so they can assist with your recovery.

Extending your Stay in Nepal

When your trek ends in Pokhara, consider extending your stay in Nepal. In such cases, you can request us to extend your stay or even arrange it alone.

If you wish to continue your journey with us, we recommend the best trips in Nepal that suit your time and budget.

Things to know before your travel

How fit do you need to be for trekking in the Annapurna Region?

The 7 days Ghorepani to Poon Hill trek experience does not involve much physical work because it follows the lower foothills of Nepal's Annapurna region.

Everyone can do this trekking with a modest level of physical fitness, and it is suitable for people of all ages, including children and older people. So, it is regarded as one of the best family treks in Nepal.

How safe is Ghorepani Poon Hill for trekking?

At Outfitter Nepal, we place the highest priority on safety. This is one area where we do not cut corners.

Our trekking guides were chosen for their technical expertise, proven safety performance, impeccable judgment, and ability to deliver practical and professional directions.

They are also entirely professional and have extensively trained in first aid and personal protective equipment.

What is the best way to get in shape for the Ghorepani trek via Poon Hill?

It might be difficult for travelers who have yet to gain prior experience trekking in the Himalayan regions of Nepal. Fortunately, this trek is not a high-altitude trek, nor is it as long as some of the other popular treks of Nepal.

So, it is relatively simple to prepare for the Poon Hill Trek, and we recommend doing some physical training beforehand, such as running, swimming, or climbing. Similarly, you should know what to expect and mentally prepare yourself. Then go ahead and do it for as long as you dare!

Do you need any permits to trek around 7 Days in Ghorepani and Poon Hill?

If you're going to the Poon Hill trekking region, you'll need two trekking permits in particular. The Annapurna Conservation Area Project Card is the first (ACAP card).

The Trekkers Information Management System Card is another permit required for the (TIMS card). If you are a solo Trekker, this card will cost you around US$ 20 (around NRs 2200); if you are a Group Trekker, it will cost you around US$ 10 (roughly NRs 1200). Outfitter Nepal will take care of all your permit needs.

    Well organised Ghorepani Trek

    I did a 10 days Ghorepani poon hill trek includes chitwan jungle safari trip that took in Kathmandu, a five day Poon Hill trek and Chitwan.

    All well put together especially considering the modest cost.

    I do not have any word to recommend this company for your Nepal trip.
