Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek Difficulty

When you came to think about the difficulty of the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek then you might think of many things. So to blow all your confusion here we have listed many more things that make the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek difficulty. The major aspect that makes the trek difficulty include the distance that you have to trek, the temperature of the places during the trek, the weight of the gears, equipment and other things that you need to carry and many more.

Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is the trek that lasts for the 9-10 days depending n the place that you want to visit and the time and days you are willing to spend to your trek. if you are looking for spending the quality of time at Pokhara and other beautiful Gurung village-like Ghandruk, Ulleri to get the feel as well, then the length of your trek might increases.

As this short Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is the short and quite easy trek that anyone can easily complete. If you have the Ghorepani Pooh Hill trekking map or one professional guide while you trek, then you will have less difficulty in completing the trek. but the map and guide will help you very well, the map will show all the locating places along the way and also discussing possible places that you can visit, whereas trekking with the professional guide will help you to be more familiar with the locals, give all the description about the place they know.

Length of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

The Ghorepani Poon Hill trek can last for various days, or depend on the time you want to spend visiting the places. If you are an international tourist and came here to enjoy your vacation then you may don't want to miss to explore the places you will trek and reach. You may want to spend one to two days at the Kathmandu City visiting the Temples and monasteries that are listed in the UNESCO world heritage sites.

From Kathmandu, you will take the first tourist bus to Pokhara, which is around 5-6 hours a drive but if you plan to take the public bus then the time can vary from 6-7 or more too. The varying length in the Time taken by the public bus is the varying traffics on the roads and also have to stop at every related bus stop.

If you want to avoid these things then you can also hire a private car to travel Pokhara. the next morning, you will drive to Nayapul, which is around one hour drive from Pokhara.

Or before moving to the Naypul you can also choose to stay in Pokhara For a day to explore them and enjoy the majestic lakes, visit the adventure Mahendra and Bat Cave, see the thrilling Davis falls. Enjoy the morning view of the Pokhara city and gorgeous snow-capped mountains from the Sarangkot Danda, boating in the Fewa Lake and many more. Then From Pokhara, you will travel and trek to various places like Nayapul. Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, Ghandruk, Ghorepani and to Poon Hill. During the trek, you will spend one night at the Ulleri and Ghorepani.

In the day at Ghorepani, you will wake up early in the morning and start the walk from the Ghorepani, to reach the Poon Hill to experience the beautiful sunrise views over the beautiful snow-capped mountains, which is very attractive, after enjoying the beautiful breathtaking views you will get back to Ghorepani for the breakfast. From Ghorepani, you will descend back to Ghandruk village and spend the night at Ghandruk.

Then the next day finally you will be at Pokhara. it means you will spend a night at Tikhedunga, A night at Ghorepani, a night at Tadapani, a night at Ghandruk and the final night at Pokhara makes around6-7 day trek

If you want to extend your trekking days you can spend one-to-two days in the charming villages, to experience many more things about that, to enjoy the local culture and tradition and if you want to reduce the number of the trekking days you can direct descend down form the Poon Hill and get back to Pokhara on the same day. This helps to reduce your trekking das.

So a very short 4-5 or 6-7 days trek is not that difficulty you think, is it?

Numbers of trekking hours

The Number of the trekking hours is also one of the pressing questions and plays an important role in making the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek difficult. You may have a question like How many hours on the average I have to walk every day for the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek?

Here we have listed it all. On the first day from Nayapul, you will walk around 4-5 hours to reach Tikhedhunga, Ulleri, the path is very steep, From Tikhedunga you have to walk around three thousand stairs to get to Ulleri. Thus your trekking hours will only be 4-5 hours longs. Like other treks, you shouldn't expect too much pressure on your body as well as a trek.

From Ulleri, you will walk around 5 hours to reach Ulleri. The walk is not as steep as that from Tikhedunga to Ulleri. Then the next days' walk is from Ghorepani to Poon Hill and then to Ghandruk will be one of the longest of all the trek. On this day you will hike to poon hill-your final destination and also you will descend back to reach in your initial position so you may have to walk around 6 to 7 hours.

On the final day, you will move ahead through Ghanduk to reach Pokhara and this will be the shortest walk of all along the trek. from Ghandruk you will walk around 2 hours to reach Kimche, or walk to the Nayapul and then from here you will take a tour hour ride to Pokhara or if you take a vehicle from Nayapul it will take and an hour to reach the Pokhara valley.

So the total number of adventure trekking hours will only be 14-15 hours over a period. Which is roughly 5 hours a day. So while measuring the dignity of the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek from this aspect of the number of trekking hours then the trek seems very easy.

Altitude

Altitude is the main aspect that everyone who treks high in Nepal scared of. And it is quite understandable. Trekking in the High altitude is quite risky because anyone who treks in the high altitude can be affected by altitude sickness.

The risks of high altitude sickness are high while you are trekking in the High altitude like Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Circuit Trek, Annapurna Base Camp trek, Everest Three passes trek and so on. But the risk of the altitude sickness in the Poon Hill is zero. This is because of the altitude sickness can be seen after you crossed the altitude of 3000 meters. And during the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek, you will touch the 3000 meters mark in the Poon Hill and return to the low altitude on the same day.

To give you the detail about the altitude, the following table will give you a good idea about the altitude of Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek.

  • Kathmandu-1320 meters
  • Pokhara-1400meters
  • Nayapul-1070 meters
  • Tikhedhunga-1480 meters
  • Ulleri-1960 meters
  • Ghorepani-2874 meters
  • Tadapani-2630 meters
  • Ghandruk-1939 meters

In these places with such a low altitude along the trek, is there any reason to think that the altitude will make Ghorepani Poon Hill trek Difficulty? I don't think so.

The weather of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Another important factor that plays a vital role in determining the weather the Poon Hill Trek whether will be smooth or rough is the weather of the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek. To know which time and places will be perfect for you to Trek, you need to look at detail about the weather of Poon Hill.

The weather and climatic conditions of the Poon Hill are very pleasant all around the year. Just only for a couple of the month in the winter season, the temperature of the Ghorepani is below zero. The minimum temperature in the Ghorepani Poon hill in January is around -4 degrees Celsius. But if you trek Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp you will experience the temperature below then -15 degrees Celsius but poon Hill is quite pleasant and warm compared to these.

Rather then trekking in another season if you plan to trek during the months of November, December or January then simply good packing of the necessary gear and equipment and pleasant tea houses along your Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek means it will help to keep the cold away. But trekking in the summer, the trekking days is really warm so during this time trekking in the t-shirt is also possible.

Note that you have to watch the weather forecast for the monsoon season though. While trekking in the monsoon season pack the waterproof jackets and trousers to keep the rain away from the monsoon if you plan to trek in the monsoon season in Ghorepani Poon Hill trek.

Hiring a professional guide

Another thing that comes while you are judging the Difficulty of the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is whether the trek can be completed solo or not. And the answer can be "yes" as well as "No".

Any adventure high altitude trekking can be completed alone if you have the prior trekking experience. but if you are the beginner trekkers, then you must trek with a guide because you may not have any more idea about the landscapes, topography and many more things which can make your trek more challenging and difficult. Hiring a guide, he will constantly direct you to sight as well as the safest trail by ensuring your safety.

Besides, hiring a professional guide in this short Ghorepani Poon Hill trek is not very difficult as the guide can be hired in the cheap amount. If you are planning to trek in the off-season like Monsoon and winter season, then hiring a guide is must important as they will help you along the trail, make you more familiar with the locals and helps you come through every difficulty and the challenges.

Besides hiring a guide if you are planning to do Ghorepani Poon Hill trek solo, then you will always have the option of carrying a map to Ghorepani Poon Hill trek which will direct you all the time. The map is quite good, they are fun as well as interactive and can be stored in your pocket. So trekking to the Ghorepani Poon Hill with a guide or all by yourself is not that difficult if you are both physically and mentally fit and are not beginner trekkers.

Accommodation

When is the best time to trek Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek?

Now if you have decided to go on the Ghorepani Pon Hill trek, then you may want to know when is the best time and you may have much confusion over it. heer we have listed the best season to trek.

Ghorepani Pooon Hill Trek is a four-season trek, it means you can trek this trek in any season and also the teahouse is opened even in the winter months.

Here we have also mentioned some benefits and the disadvantages of each season and you have to think about how to balance the weather and vegetation against the number of the visitor on the route.

Spring season

The months of March, April, and May fall in this Season. As the Ghorepani poon Hill trek is at the low altitude, the days during these months very warm and sunny too. So all you need while trekking in this season is to wear a t-shirt but remember to carry some warm clothes for early morning and evening and the temperature during this time dropdown.

You will see the vegetation is in full blooms. Crossing through the dense green forest of bamboo, pine, and oak seeing beautiful Nepal's national flower, the rhododendrons, which is a highlight of the radiant color. Those who have trekked during the spring season in Nepal refer to the beautiful blooms rhododendrons when they reminisce about their adventure trek.

During this period of the year, the temperature will ranges below 10 to 24 degrees Celsius, the temperature on the Poon Hill itself dropping to the freezing points. In the beautiful viewpoint, Poon Hill, you will be served the tea and coffee during the cold and sunrise vigil.

There is no rainfall during this time, the skies are pretty clear, the weather is also quite warm and no snow-fall as well as during the months of March.

Monsoon season

Monsoon season is something wonderful that we all loved about. The vegetation is washed and clean, the snow-capped mountains are very beautiful in the morning after a night of the heavy rain and also there will be the time when the mountains will hide under the rain clouds. But that just makes us more curious and special by thinking when they will again appear.

Teahouses along the trekking trails are open during this time and you will see fewer trekkers around so food and accommodation is not a problem while trekking in this season. The months of June, July, and August fall in monsoon season. The temperature is not so different from those of the spring season, but a bit less cold at the higher point of the trek. while trekking in these months you can expect the temperature to be around 9 to 24 degrees Celsius and drop when it rains.

You may have the question like How much does it rain during the monsoon season? then Monsoon season does not mean downpour 24 hours 7 weeks. If you are lucky then you may also have no rain during your trek at all. But most common you will see some rains for short periods of time every day.

The main challenges and disadvantages of trekking in the monsoon season are the leeches, mosquitoes, and bugs (they do not pass the diseases but can cause infection if you scratch the bite site) and also the trail will be more slippery.

The main advantage of the trekking in the monsoon season is then you will see very few numbers of trekkers along the trekking trails and carrying the lotion to avoid the leeches as you can also carry salt to remove them. Drinking the hot tea or coffee inside the teahouses watching the rain falling outside will be just amazing, magical experience as gazing at the snow-capped mountains.

A good pair of walking shoes, trekking poles will help you to avoid the slippery part of the trial.

Autumn season

Autumn season is the best time to trek in the high altitude of Himalayan. As a result, the trail will be much busier and crowded. Due to the warm and pleasant weather and the beauty of the surrounding, there will be more trekkers around so that the accommodation facilities are at a premium.

This season is the main festival season in Nepal- the biggest festival Dashain and Tihar also fall in this season, so if you are planning to trek with a porter and with a guide then make sure to book them in advance.

Due to the peak season, there will be very fewer accommodation facilities as result you may not get the room or may have to share the room you get with your friends or wit the stranger too, so to avoid these problems make sure to make the advance booking of the room.

Being the peak trekking season and also the festival season falling at the same time, the trekking staff for the trekking trail is stretched to the limits. They are only for 2-3 days however the things will be affected such ass less rad transport during the main festival times so you may have to bear such things so be planned for your trekking.

Besides these, you can enjoy the festival atmosphere in Kathmandu as well as along the way in the Pokhara.

The temperature during the trek is much similar to the spring, it will get cooler as the season gets later. So you can expect the temperature ranges of 10 to 24 degrees Celsius.

Winter season

As the Ghorepani poon Hill trek is a low altitude trek compared to the other Himalayan trekking, so the trekking trail is open during the winter season too. The months of December, January, and February fall in this season. to trek in these months, warm clothes are must need as the temperature will drop to the freezing in the morning and evening.

At the lower altitude, you can expect the day time temperature around the 15 degree Celsius, which is very comfortable for hiking and also in these time of the year it rarely rain. But there may be some light of the snow.

Being the cold time of the year there will be the very fewer trekkers on the trail, it means you don't have to face the problems of accommodation at the teahouse. All the teahouse have the warm fire to sit around and talk about the trek with some cup of something hot.

During these times the views will be very beautiful in the frosty air. So those who don't mind a little cold and want to avoid the crowds then this is a great time to trek Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek.
