The trail for trekking Poon Hill, Nepal is considered to be very easy, to say optimally is that you can climb the stairs is likely you can go trekking. I am also an office worker, before going I just exercise gently for one month, but still go well. Poon Hill also has moderate altitude with the high peak is 3210m, so the symptoms appear due to the difference in height is not significant. Let discover the details itinerary of your experience of Pokhara — Poon Hill trekking in about 4 to 5 days: Poon Hill trek from Pokhara: Poon Hill trek 4 days.

The scenery is very beautiful and attractive your mind. With the good weather, you can see the highest snow peaks of the Himalayas as well as admire the rich vegetation of the Annapurna ecological region. The ideal time to go trekking in this trail is from September to April. The period from October to March on the peak Poon Hill will have snow so you remember to prepare the appropriate outfit. The period from May to August is the rainy season, so there are slippery roads and have quite a few visitors.

Small note for your trip

Poon Hill
If you are the rush, you can conquer Poon Hill within 3 days but most people go 4 to 5 days. Image by: Poon Hill trek 4 days blog.

If you are the rush, you can conquer Poon Hill within 3 days but most people go 4 to 5 days. With longer schedules, you will save energy and have more time to admire and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Nepalese mountains and forests. Often, the guesthouses accept you to send the luggage to the trek for free, but you need to remember to bring a lock for peace of mind.

Trekking in Nepal is basically transferring from one village to another, and every stop has its own guesthouse, which is also very affordable, with a $ 4 for the double room. Even some motels you can negotiate will have breakfast and dinner at their place, so the owner can free the room.

Eating at the guesthouse from $ 4 to $ 5 a meal. There are also many kinds of food like fried rice, fried noodles, and noodles. Especially the Dal Bhat (a traditional Nepalese food, including rice, lentil soup which supplies the good power). You can ask for food for free again, finish eat but still hungry, then say people give more until you are full. Is it wonderful?

Due to the impact of tourism sometimes the children will ask you for chocolate or money when meeting or after you take pictures of them, you should politely refuse them.

If you choose to travel by yourself without a guide or tour guide, make sure you buy a detailed map of Annapurna (which is pretty much sold in Pokhara) to bring along. If you feel uncertain, ask the people in the street who they will be happy to show you.

Day 1: Pokhara- Nayapul – Tirkedhunga -Ulleri

From the bus station in Pokhara, you buy a ticket to Nayapul (remember to bring your driver down to Nayapul, to be sure to write in the paper to see the driver) car within 1-2 hours, fare 150 Nepalese rupees ($ 1.5). From the bus stop at Nayapul, go straight for 30 minutes you can see the first mountain village of Bileri.

Going through an iron bridge will encounter the first checkpoint, you should remember to stop to show the passport, TIMS card, and Permits card to test offline. From here begins the journey to conquer Poon Hill.

The first destination is Tikhedhunga Village. This road you follow the path which is available. On the road, you will meet a lot of players from all over the world, so if you go alone, you will not afraid of sad or lost.

The first road from Bileri to Tikhedhunga is quite light, mostly straight road, and you need to go about 2 and a half hours. To Tikhedhunga, you can stay overnight if you start in the late morning. But if you have the strength and time allowed, then follow the advice of some experienced players on the road, try to go to Ulleri to stay overnight. The scene in Ulleri much better and you will see an Annapurna South. You also have time to save the energy for the next day.

After about 3 hours of climbing, I reached the beautiful village of Ulleri. After a few days of looking forward, finally I can see the first snow mountain, Annapurna South is seen from the village of Ulleri. It is 6 o’clock in the evening, I have a rest, dinner in Ulleri village and prepare for adventures tomorrow.

After breakfast, about 7 o’clock to say goodbye to Ulleri and continue the journey, along with the way available to go. The road segment today is less steep than yesterday afternoon, giving me the strength to see the scenery more. Luckily the weather is good, the forest scene is beautiful and poetic as in fairy tales.

The beautiful and bluey scene make myself sometimes fall in love that does not want to step away. The senses stretch as if to collect all the wonderful emotions that nature brings. I stopped for lunch in Nangethanti after 4 hours trekking, this point is very close to Ghorepani already. Continue moving, feeling close to the destination that is lightly and no longer rushed.

The flora is extremely rich, I like the way Nepalese people do travel, they are very conscious and know how to preserve nature. The roads are long and so many people that rarely see rubbish.

After a slightly steep slope from Nangethani, I also reached Ghorepani. This time lasts only 3 hours. It is faster than I think much. Here is a checkpoint TIMS and Permits card again. I can find out more snow mountains. With the first time I have seen the snow, this feeling is very excited.

Most people come to Poon Hill to see the sunrise, but a few people know that watching the sunset on Poon Hill is very beautiful. Because of fewer people, you will have more space to take photos. Unfortunately, the weather was not good. There was too much fog that made the snow not clear.

From Ghorepani to Poon Hill peak, I need to climb the mountain about 1 hour. It is still early, although I guess I can not see the sunset, I am so eager to see climb to the peak to see the sunset. Then the fog down pretty much, I returned to take rest, have dinner for the next day. On Ghorepani, if you go from October to March, there will be snow, so pay attention to the costumes. This time in early May, the snow has already melted, but the weather is still very cold about ten degrees which is enough to make a child always in the South as sunny shivering.
