Ghorepani, Poonhill Trek..07 Days

Trip Introduction

Earlier, we have described about many different trekking routes in our trekking section including 3 cols to Simikot – Kailash trekking as well as Everest Base Camp from both part south and north from Tibet. Those trekking routes are challenging to alpine which requires perfect strength and prior high altitude experiences. Among the trekking trails, we have tried our level best to present some of the easy trekking routes for instant Ghorepani and Poonhill. 

Ghorepani Poon hill trekking located in 3195 meters above from sea level lies in Annapurna Conservation Area Project of Annapurna trial in Western Nepal. The Annapurna region is an area in western Nepal where some of the most popular treks are located. The region is generally taken to include areas around the Annapurna Range (Annapurna Himal), the Dhaulagiri Range and the Kaligandaki River valley. Peaks in the Annapurnas include 8,091m Annapurna I, Nilgiri (7,061 m) and Machhapuchchhre (6,993 m). Dhaulagiri I (8,167 m) is just to the west of the Annapurnas, Most of these peaks are visible throughout the region on clear days. The Poonhil is most popular for sunrise and sun set view point from where you can see massif views of Annapurna I, stands at 8,091 m (26,538 ft), Mount Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre& more than 25 small peaks with 360 degrees panoramic views from far west to east just in apprxo.55 KMs in distance. While sun rising, mountain ranges are totally golden due to reflection which is incredible to observe in early morning, thus, we counsel you to trek from Ghorepani to Poonhill earlier then sunrise. 

Starting from Pokhara to Nayapul or Phedi by private vehicle (2 hrs) depending on the traffic situation at the time of travelling, normally we start the trekking from Birethani Village just lies next to Pokhara – Baglung Highway. The entire trip / trekking trail is almost all ascending till Poonhill which can be completed in 3 days walking from Nayapul – Tirkhedhungda, Ullari, Ghorepani&Poonhill. 

There are two section of this trekking as we will commence from Birethanti to Poonhill and then turn left to Tadapani –Ghandruk Village which is the real resident of varieties of flora and fauna form sub tropical to pine and you will grace by the heart touching blossoming rhododendron on your way. The Tadapani area offers the largest rhododendron forest in the world where you can experience hundreds of different of rhododendron. This segment is also the abode to copious wildlife like pika, blue sheep, snow leopards, tigers and Himalayan thar. Multiplicity of birds including multi –colored Impheyan, koklas and blood pheasants, offer you their natural beauty. In this region you will encounter with the Gurungs and Thakali people whose culture and religion is an examplorary of its kind in Nepal. 

Simple trekking gears such as sticks, globes, sunglass, sport shoes, pair of trousers, shocks and water purifying tablets etc can be collected from Pokhara the starting point of the trek. The lodges and their tiny restaurant along the way, has a long experienced room boy and cook to prepare any types of dishes throughout the trekking. So, No camping gears and huge team is required now a days. 

The trial through the thick forest also has to offer many small tea stall offering Masala tea / coffee/ Mineral water etc. The lodges has almost all modern facilities like hot water/ cozy Himalayan view rooms/comfortable beds with foam mattress, clean pillows, private bath ( somewhere), dinning with heating system and apple pie which is unforgettable indeed. 

Hence, we suggest this trekking for beginners those seeking for Himalayan close views being not so far from the cities. At the end of the trekking, one can enjoy the naturally Pokhara situated in the lap of Mt. Fishtail and Phewa Lake. Still, there are many options missing to enjoy i.e, Chitwan National Park, Seti River raft, Kaligandaki Raft, Bandipur Village, Bardia National Park, Lumbini via Palpa City or extension you're trekking to annpurna circuit, Annapuran Base camp from Ghandruk Village, etc. In fact, this is the gateway trekking of Jomsom, Upper Mustang, Tilicho Lake and Hot Spring / Dhaulagiri High pass….

Getting started: Trekking is an activity that you can start with a nominal equipment and knowledge. If you have a agency like Getaway! Himalayan Eco-Trekking Pvt. Ltd. you have the perfect plan to start the venture according to your needs. Most Trekking routes have walking tracks suitable for both beginners and experienced trekkers. It's just a matter of choosing a walk that you're comfortable with and as we would say, just do it! 

Get to know your own ability: You need to read our e-mailed itinerary and complete info well in advance before commencing flight to Nepal. Discuss with your Trekking Guide and Porters as soon as you land in Kathmandu or Pokhara who will give you practical information about the entire trip especially on road condition, standard of lodges/tents, food, rescue etc. Start off with a short walk on a well defined track early in the day especially for the first day. This will give you a chance to gauge your performance. It is tempting for an enthusiastic beginner to go that bit further too late in the day. If the track you have chosen is short and well defined you will have a much better chance of reorienting yourself. Before heading out evaluate the prevailing weather conditions and take the appropriate clothing and water for the conditions. See the checklist if you are in need of equipments, on the bottom of our homepage available for walks in your area.

The best way to experience the incredible combination of natural beauty and cultural riches of Nepal is to walk through them. The objective of trekking is not just reaching the particular destination, but enjoying the journey as well. You can walk at your own pace, observing nature, rural communities, and spectacular mountain panoramas. It is a simple walk, but comprises very special places like - amazing forests, isolated hamlets, and small mountain villages, birds, animals, temples, monasteries and overwhelming landscapes. You will also encounter friendly people of different mountain cultures offering fascinating glimpses of traditional rural life, quite unimaginable in our modern urban life. 

A trekking route will often pass through forests of rhododendron, bamboo, oak, hemlock and visiting one or two villages each day. However, the greatest highlight of any trek is the tantalizing views of snowcapped peaks. Rivers are crossed on log passages or suspension bridges. It’s not unusual to cross snowfields in the morning and bathe in sub-tropical streams in the afternoon. 

For the most part, trekking routes are well traveled by local people, but has remained unmarked without signposts. Trekkers rely on our staff for directions and an introduction to the local people, culture, religion, and lifestyle. Our job is to ensure your comfort and safety as we take you where you want to go, at your own pace. We show you what you have come to see, and help you explore a different world. 

Is trekking for everyone?

Yes, everyone can go for trekking. Some people might hesitate whether I can do it or not. Well, it is alright for any person with a normal health. Generally we walk just for 6-7 hours a day, with lots of breaks in between for breakfast, lunch, tea times and you can stop for a rest whenever you feel like.  One of our staff stays at the back of the group to make sure everyone is okay.

We offer treks to more than 70 destinations in Nepal Himalayas. You can choose one of them according to your interest, time, budget and the trekking grades. You can find this list of trekking routes from the left-side menu & Drop down menu of this section. 

Please also check the trekking regions, types, accommodation styles, health and other related information under ‘Trekking Info’ on the left-side menu of this section.

Types of Trekking

 

  1. Tea House ( Lodge ) Trekking
  2. Tented Camp ( Using own Tents)
  3. Hiring Guide or Porter on self arranged lodge or Tent.

 

Trekking can be done in a number of ways; Teahouse Trekking (Lodge to Lodge) & Tented Camp. In teahouse trekking, you eat and sleep on hotels and teahouse in Nepal where one can get a hot cup of tea, coffee found locally in the trekking regions.

 

Teahouse trekking is the most popular of all as you can easily find a place to eat and sleep in the areas you are familiar with. Few routes such as Annapurna Circuit, Base Camp, Jomsom and Muktinath, Everest B.C, Gokyo Lake, Langtang & its surroundings have tourist level lodge and small hotels to accommodate trekkers in twin – single or triple bed sharing basis. However, Everest High pass after Gokyo Lake in between the Everest Base Camp have no lodge shelter for trekkers.  Annapurna circuit especially on Thorung–La (5416 meters) also is quite busy during High season. Now days, Upper Mustang and Kanchenjunga area trekking also offers small lodges cum houses for trekkers to stay with family and enjoy the tradition indeed. This is possible for only small size group of people who can adjust with families.

 

Camping trekking is popular in areas where one would tent, cook individually or in groups other then in Lodge trekking routes as mentioned above. Usually you make your backpack lighter by carrying limited foods and clothes required during the trekking period. You can give the entire responsibility to arrange the Porters, food and accommodation to Getaway! Himalayan Eco-Trekking Pvt. Ltd. and enjoy the trek.

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

Some people are more susceptible to altitude sickness than others. If you suffer from a case of altitude sickness it does not mean that you can never go to high altitudes again. However, it does means in the future, you should pay attention. Awareness of altitude sickness has caused some trekkers to be unnecessarily anxious as they trek. The progression of symptoms is usually gradual, and you will have plenty of time to react appropriately. Design your itineraries to allow plenty of time for acclimatization so that you will be able to adjust to the increasing altitude. Human bodies have the ability to adjust to higher altitudes when given enough time. If a person travels up to high altitudes more rapidly than his or her body is able to adjust the developed AMS symptoms.

The treatments of AMS are first and foremost not to ascend with symptoms as symptoms are likely to descend. In rare cases where descend is difficult or impossible a portable pressure chamber is effective. Three medications have also been proven useful for treating and preventing AMS namely Acetazolamide (Diamox), Dexamethasone (Decadron), Nifedipine. Your physician and local Public Health Service are the best sources for further information.

 

WATER

Obviously, some urban water may be extremely contaminated and some mountain water may be almost pure you are advised not to drink tap or stream water for your safety. Stick to purified water or soft drinks. Boiling makes water  safe to drink and a good way to ensure safe drinking water is  to consume lots of tea or a hot drink (hot lemon or hot water) which is available almost everywhere. Another way to ensure safe drinking water is to treat it with iodine or chlorine preparations.

 

CLOTHING EQUIPMENT

The things that you need to have in your backpack during the tour are important things to be taken into an account. Your backpack should be lighter as you need to carry them and should be stuffed with essentials. Above 3,000 m the days are cooler and a set of interchangeable warm and windproof layers is best. During the night you should put on dry thermals and the thickest down jacket available. Above 4,000 m it is cool year-round so you can dress up accordingly.
