Description

Join us on yet another Poon Hill trek in Nepal. Walk through scenic mountain villages, explore the culture of native people and see one of the most spectacular sunrises from the top of Poon Hill on this 9-day trek.

The journey will take you to the north-western region of Pokhara. You’ll traverse scenic trails and see many beautiful temples and monasteries on the way.

The trail leads through lush valleys at the base of Annapurna and Machhapuchhre mountain ranges. It will take you on verdant hills through rhododendrons, pine, oak and birch trees.

Starting at Kathmandu, we’ll drive to Pokhara to begin our adventure. The initial route leads through terraced fields of rice and mustard. On the way,  you’ll see amazing views though many high peaks like Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. You’ll continue to walk through the lush forest until you reach Ghorepani.

Hiking further, you’ll get to the top of Poon Hill, which is definitely the highlight of the trip. The hill soars to the height of 3210m and rewards with an enchanting sunrise and stunning vistas of many imposing peaks like Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Nilgiri and many more.

Our last part of the trek will take us to the beautiful village of Ghandruk. Here, you’ll see the lifestyle of Gurung people closely and it will be really interesting to learn about their traditional practices and unique culture. You can also visit the Gurung Museum to see the artifacts, dresses and other items used by these people.

Again passing through Pokhara, you’ll finally return to Kathmandu by the eight-day to end this incredible trek.

This easy trek doesn’t require any special skills and it is preferred by both seasoned hikers and beginners alike.

So, send a message to join us on this amazing Poon Hill Trek in Nepal. You’ll have an unforgettable time, we assure you! Also, check out another wonderful Poon Hill sunrise trek in Nepal here.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
