    • Day02

      Day 2: Hike up to Poon Hill, then descend to Nayapul.

      As we know, this trek is only two days, making the second the last day of the walk. So on the second day, the first thing that we do is trek to the top of Poon Hill. We start your hike early morning to catch the sunrise from the Poon Hill viewpoint. It will take around 1 hour to reach the viewpoint from Ghorepani.

      We will spend some time there to experience the majestic view of several peaks of the Annapurna region. Moreover, trekkers also enjoy photoshoots and try collecting as many memories as possible. After that, we start to descend to Ulleri and we will again drive back to Pokhara, which officially ends our Poon Hill 2 Days Trek.

      During these two days, you will experience the fun and adventure of even the tiny hill of Nepal. Though this trek will be easier and more adventurous than any circuit trek, you can take it as training if you want to go for any circuit trek or expeditions in the future. Even though Poon Hill is less altitude than any other circuit trek, you may experience snowfall here. The routes are also worth walking. So if you are ever to visit Pokhara and love to trek, but are not prepared for high-altitude trekking, try Poon Hill Trek and enjoy the beauty of nature.

    Essential Information

    Best time to go for the Poon Hill 2 Days Trek

    Almost all the trekking circuits of Nepal are best if done in the spring or autumn seasons. The same goes with the Poon Hill 2 Days trek. As a trekking agency, we suggest all visitors go for this trek in October to till May. Since Jeep you will take you directly to Ulleri, it is not possible in the rainy season. Poon Hill trek can be completed in 2 Days only during the dry season.

    During these months, you will observe the best experience that Poon Hill can ever give you. The main reason why we suggest the trekkers visit Poon Hill this month is because of the weather. Suppose you have read about any other travel blogs and articles about trekking in Nepal. In that case, you might be well-known of the fact that the temperature of the Nepalese Himalayas is warm and relatively dry during the spring and autumn seasons. Therefore, you can enjoy the trek instead of hurrying to get back to your lodges because of cloudy skies and heavy rainfall or even snowfall in many cases.

    Also, we have mentioned in the highlights that Poon Hill is best known for the fantastic sunrise view that you can see in the early morning. If you go in the winter or rainy season, you might miss this majestic view because of excessive clouds or rainfall. Besides, these seasons are also best for experiencing the beautiful nature surrounding the Poon Hill trial.

    Permits and Passes

    In the previous days, trekkers could go for the trek on their own, by which we mean without any professional guide. To do so, they had to obtain two permits: Annapurna Conservation Area Permit (ACAP) and TIMS Trekkers Permit. However, as per the latest rule passed by the government of Nepal, trekkers can only visit the trek with a professional guide. Therefore, there is no need for a TIMS card from April 1, 2023, which means that the trekkers would only have to get an ACAP which will cost them NPR 3,000.

    One major thing to remember about the ACAP permit card is that the trekkers must renew it every time they leave and want to return to the conservational area. Suppose you need any help regarding the ACAP permit or professional guides. In that case, you can contact our office as we are here to help our foreign guests anytime they want.

    Fooding and Accommodation

    One of the essential factors to check before the trek is the fooding and accommodation options. However, you do not have to worry about these while trekking on Poon Hill for two days. The route of this trek is full of several tea houses and lodges that provide the trekkers with cozy and comfortable rooms and a hot shower facility. Therefore, you can comfortably spend the night and become fresh throughout the trek.

    Now talking about the fooding services, you will get to enjoy a lot of varieties on the menu even at that altitude. However, one thing to remember is that the price of everything on the menu is slightly higher than they are in Pokhara. The locals face difficulty taking everything at such a high altitude. Also, the transport fees will be increased because of the narrow and not-so-good roads. Therefore, paying a high nominal rate for such delicacies at such altitude is not a big deal for enthusiastic trekkers.

    Packing List for Poon Hill 2 Days trek

    As this is just a two days trek, you can do a little packing. Remember to pack the most important things, like warm clothes, sunscreens, sunglasses, boots, a trekking rod, and plenty of water or other liquids. Also, as you will be heading to see the sunrise from the peak of Poon Hill, the trek will begin very early in the morning, meaning it will still be dark when you start the tour. As a result, remember to carry a headlamp with you.

    While packing your backpack, carry the essentials and only a few extra things that make your load heavy for no reason. You will not have to worry about food, blankets, sleeping bags, etc., as fooding and accommodation will be in a local teahouse or guesthouse on the way.

    One thing that you should remember while packing for this trek is that you should think of this as an easy trek and not like any circuit trek, where you need to carry a lot of necessary equipment.

    Cultural Experience

    Nepal is best known for its cultural, ethnic, and linguistic diversions. On top of that, if you go to the rural part of the country or the upper regions, you will experience the best Nepali culture. Poon Hill trek also comprises different cultures and ethnicity, which you might not get to see anywhere in the world.

    Besides, the trekking trials made of stones, the houses and lodges made of rocks, and the hospitality offered by the people show how well the history of Nepal and its beauty were carved. Furthermore, you will also see the hard work and determination of the people inhabiting such a high altitude and trying to serve the tourists almost everything they want to eat and everything they wish for refreshment or rest.

    You will only see a few in the city or urban areas because life is hectic here. However, people still follow the old tradition in remote areas and live happy and beautiful life. Furthermore, these regions are the best if you want to get the actual taste of Nepali festivals, like Dashain, Tihar, Holi, and many more.

    Therefore, if you have come to Nepal and want to study its cultural and ethnic diversions, the Poon Hill trek might be one of your best choices.
