Morning after breakfast we embark on your journey to Pokhara which is about 200 kms and takes around 6 hours to reach. On arrival in Pokhara you will be instantly awed by the Phewa Lake and the laid back atmosphere it has on offer. After having lunch and a brief rest we start our trek . The trek starts from Nayapul which is about one and half hour drive. The first day is relatively easy as you will find yourself just walking uphill on a gravel road. Soon afterwards the road gets transformed to a trail and we cross the Modi Khola (river) and reach Tikledhunga. This will be our final destination for the day as we check into a lodge and have dinner. (Total trekking time for today 5-6 hours) Dinner & overnight stay at hotel/guest house.

Day 3: Tikledhunga to Ghorepani

We wake up early on Day 3 around ( 7am ) have breakfast and start our trek . The days hike is quite challenging as you keep walking straight towards the mountain for about 4 hours which provides a stern test of your stamina. But it is rewarding as well as you catch picturesque views of the white snow capped Annapurna peaks. We stop for lunch in between and after an hours rest we set off for Ghorepani which is about 3 hours of hiking. Ghorepani is divided into a upper and a lower part . We stop at the upper part which has superb panoramic views of the Annapurna range and the surrounding mountains. Overnight at Ghorepani.

Day 4: Ghorepani to Poon Hill – Gandruk

We wake up early at 5 am to head towards the majestic Poon Hill which is about a 45 minutes hike to catch the sunrise. After reaching the top of Poon Hill we welcome the magnificent views of Annapurna (8091M) , Dhaulagiri (8167M) and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail mountain ,6993 M) . This view is the focal point of the Ghorepani-Poonhill Trekking route and you can spend hours just amazed by it. The rugged snowy peaks towering above us covered in splashes of red of the sun is just the thing that brings so many tourists to this route. We return to Ghorepani and after having breakfast and some rest we embark further towards the direction of Ghandruk Village. From here onwards you are continuously splashed with wonderful views of the mountains and it would be hard to stop yourself from stopping every instance and click some photos. You will pass along a parallel ridge and some downhill routes into dense rhododendron forests and waterfalls . We finally reach Ghandruk Village which is inhabited by the Gurung people and is mostly occupied with stone houses. You can also spend time in some sight-seeing which involves a museum, a temple and a monastery. The views are again amazing and you would just want to watch the mountains forever.

Sumit at Snowyoda was very helpful and professional. He and I interacted for months prior to our trip using Whatsapp with either texts or phone calls. Just as he indicated he had everything lined up from the moment he picked me up at the airport. All our guides were top notch. I MISS NEPAL!

Consiglio vivamente di avventurarsi tra le stupende montagne con Snowyoa Expeditions. Molto professionali e preparati per passeggiare tra le montagne con tutta sicurezza. La compagnia offre tanti servizi con prezzi buoni. L’Hotel è molto accogliente e pulito.

We did the Poon Hill trek with Snowyoda with expert guidance from Mr Sumit . He replied to all our emails in a very professional manner and alleviated our doubts and concerns of any kind . When we landed in Nepal we felt a homeliness as the owner himself came to the airport to pick us up . Our guides were top notch and we had an amazing view of the sunrise at Poon Hill. Definitely coming back in the future.

This is one of the most famous trekking areas in Nepal. It starts either from Naya pool or from Phedi after reaching Pokhara. There are rarely a few places in the world with such a splendid variety of natural beauty as that of Annapurna and dhaulagiri region.

We were a group of 5 girls from Bangalore and we wanted a short trek in Nepal . After searching online we found Snowyoda Expeditions , they advised us to go for Poon hill trek and we were surprised by the punctuality and professionalism displayed by them . Our trip was managed perfectly from start to finish and we witnessed raw natural beauty of Nepal passing though Pokhara , Poon Hill . The forests on the way were simply to die for.
