The trekker says- “I booked the trip the day before my departure and everything ran very smoothly during the trek. My guide Bishnu and the porter “Pikas” (pardon me if I get the name wrong) were both very responsible and heart-warming. They wouldn’t hesitate to offer help when it’s needed and let you trek in your own pace. I have lots of questions about the trek and Nepal during the journey and Bishnu got answers to most of them! The man behind them – Shiva was also a great organizer who was always making sure everything is fine. The airport pick-up service and farewell dinner were a bonus. They also provide sleeping bags and down jacket so that you don’t have to worry about the cold temperature up in the mountains. The experience was amazing overall and I’d recommend you to do trekking in Nepal with Nepal Lion!“

On the first day of the trek, second day of our trip, its a 2 Hours drive in a local bus/taxi from Hotel to Nayapul (1050m). From Nayapul we start our Poonhill panorama trek covering many picturesque views of the northern hilly region of Western Nepal. We ascend through the various alpine forest, bamboo forests, and grass and shrub-lands covering major destinations like Birethati and Tikhedhunga.
Tonight, we stay over-night at Ulleri, a very beautiful and serene town with a folk culture that will provide you a life experience along with its very refined hospitality.
Early in the morning(at around 4 or 4:30), we head up to Poon-Hill, to a viewpoint to have a panoramic view of sunrise. You will be able to see mesmerizing sunrise from this place. After an hour up-hill walk in a cold breeze, sipping coffee/tea sold by a guy out there, looking at the Sun rising on Dhaulagiri Mountain Range, Annapurna Mountain Range, Lamjung Himal, Manaslu, Ganesh and several other Himalayan Ranges seems nothing less than magnificent, that with people at the number of 200 or more .
After this, we trek back down to Ghorepani and have breakfast. After breakfast, we continue our journey back to Tadhapani, a place towards Pokhara. With such a bewildering view and nostalgia of craving to stay some more day in Ghorepani we head ahead placing the whole Annapurna Range on the right and some steep hills at our back.
And we are here at Tahdapani, you might want to get some rest and then time for dinner.

Wake up, early, sunrise isn’t any less spectacular here than you see at Poon-Hill, with less crowd and cold breeze. After we enjoy a picturesque morning with a lovely breakfast at Tadhapani we now head towards our last destination but not any less, Ghandruk, before Pokhara.
Ghandruk is much a cultural hub mingled with a picturesque scenery in its background. You can enjoy several things like inside-home cultural museums, tiled roofs, people and their hospitality along with your lunch.
Now it’s an only 3-hour ride in a local bus from Ghandruk to Pokhara leaving several beautiful landscapes and clear-water rivers.
We recommend packing light as you will have to carry everything you bring on your back,
that is unless you hire a porter to carry all of your stuff.
The days are warm and climbing all the stairs you will get hot, we recommend wearing athletic pants
and a t-shirt during the day. Bring tons of layers for the evenings, nights, and early mornings including
You will need minimal gear but we do recommend having a good backpack meant for backpacking as
these are usually built for comfort. You will also want to bring a refillable water bottle as you will not be able to purchase water bottles on the mountain, instead, you will have to purchase filtered water. If you’re prone to getting hungry be sure to pack some snacks for trekking Poon Hill. You will be able to purchase some on the mountain but they will most likely be candy bars.
We also recommend bringing a head torch or flashlight for the sunrise Poon Hill trek since it’s dark
when you start and it can be a bit dangerous if you can’t see.
Poon Hill TrekYou will need to get from Kathmandu to Pokhara to start this short trek in Nepal. You can either take a painfully long bus ride or you can opt for about a 30-minute flight for. We recommend staying the night in Pokhara and getting an early start the next day. If you hire a local guide they will arrange your ride, if not you will have to hire a driver in Pokhara to drop you off.
We recommend doing this trek with a local guide, even though you can do the Poon Hill trek on your own but having a local who is an expert with the mountains and route is a total relief. They reassure to make you well prepared before and during the trek.
If you plan on going without a guide during high season you will have a more difficult time finding accommodation in the tea houses in the villages.
During peak season the tea houses fill up since the local guides know the different tea house owners they assure you will have a place to sleep before trekking. If you show up and do the trek on your own and the guest houses are full you may have to trek a few more hours to another village to find a place to sleep.
