And, at the end of the trek, you have to give some tips to your trekking crew. For this, you have to allocate some dollars or Nepali currency. 

Typical Day

The typical trip day begins with a good breakfast. You will have breakfast at around 7-8 am and begin the day after it. Then, you will have to work/walk for 3-4 hours after breakfast and you will stop for lunch. The lunchtime will be around an hour. You will order your lunch item and the restaurant/hotel/teahouse will cook for you. Sometimes, you may have to wait for some time if the restaurant or hotel is crowded. You can find the item you want in the menu prepared by the local lodge/restaurant/hotel. If you are vegetarian, no worries, you can still find the ways. 

After lunch, you will resume your work/trek/trip again and end it in the after like around 3-4 pm. After that, you will check in the hotel/guesthouse/teahouse and get refreshed. Take rest, change clothing and go for dinner at around 6-7 pm. Your leader will help you to order the meals you like. At the dinner, your leader will share the important information for the next day’s trip and you can raise the question regarding it. The leader will orient you on what to wear, how to walk, what to carry and where to eat. Follow the instructions from the guide/leader very well.

    You have two options to go to Poonhill/Punhill. The one is by land and other  is by air. The land transportation is possible by private jeep/car and tourist bus and even possible by local bus. But, we do not recommend you to go with local bus.

     The tourist bus ride takes 6-7 hours, private jeep or car takes 4-5 hours to get Pokhara from Kathmandu. But, if you choose to fly to Pokhara from Kathmandu, it takes only 35 minutes. After getting to Pokhara, you can instantly begin your Punhill Trek.

So, again, after you reach the Poonhil, you walk directly back to Pokhara along the same trail or can go with other trail via Tadapani and Ghandruk villages. If you walk down along the same trail, you will again take another jeep ride back to Pokhara or if you go to toher side like Tadapani and Ghandruk, you will take a jeep or local bus ride from Ghandruk to Pokhara and do the same as you did before for returning Kathmandu. 

    Poonhill Trek is a 4-5 days trekking trip in Nepal located in popular Annapurna region. This duration is from Kathmandu to Kathmandu. But if you are already in Pokhara, you can just allocate 3 days for our Punhill Trek. The 3 days will be enough for it to witness marvelous mountain panoramas including Dhaulagiri, Annapurnas, Machhapuchhre, Manaslu and Ganesh Himal from the top of Poonhill.

    The Poonhill Trek commences from Nayapool/Birethanti. Or optionally, you can go up to Ulleri or Bantahnti by sharing jeep ride and can begin the trek formally from either Ulleri or Bantahnti. You will ascend up to 3210m which is Poonhill, the highest elevation this trek within 2 days. If you want to return back following the same trail, you can walk back to Pokhara on the same day and if you don’t want this, you can trek to Tadapani and then to Ghandruk village and you will finally return back to Pokhara.

    If you combine your Poon Hill Trek with Chitwan activities, this idea will be a rewarding as you can relax and rest there in Chitwan after Poonhill Trek with exciting Chitwan activities including jungle safari.
