Faqs

This 5 days Poonhill / Ghorepani trek is a small circuit trek giving you ample opportunity to witness the majestic Annapurna range, the spectacular landscape and to understand the culture of the western people popularly known as GURUNGS. It's one of the highlight of the Annapurna region that in reality connects the great Annapurna Circuit Trek. This five days trekking is indeed the easiest and anyone with reasonable fitness can join the trek. Besides, being different to 1000s trekking agencies existing in Nepal, Mountain Monarch does anti clockwise making it more remarkable and trouble-free.

Since Poonhill trek happens to be the easiest trekking destination it is within reach for anyone with reasonable level of fitness. If truth be told Poonhill trek is quite fashionable among the family, Christmas groups or for people with tight schedule but want to see the most of Nepal. Not much of preparation is needed other than few miles walk prior to your visit and tolerate early wake up calls for the sunrise views.

There is zero chance of any high altitude sickness problem in Poonhill trek as it is a low altitude trekking. There might be chances of food poisoning or stomach problem if much care isn’t taken with a new diet. However, your leader will always be there to assist you with the choice of food. There is a beautiful saying for Poonhill trek –"Leave behind your altitude medication and drink beer'.

The charging privilege for any of your electronic devices is all the way around Poonhill treks, there might be charges levied in some tea houses. As for the hot showers some are run by solar, fire chimney or liquid petroleum gas and for solar showers days are need to be with perfect sun however, hot showers are available in every tea house with minimum charges.

Usually not more than 4 to 6 hours excluding lunch. However, it also depends on your pace though we allow you enough time to set up your own pace to make everyday more entertaining. We usually start early so that you could reach the destination on time leaving you enough time to explore and enjoy the serenity of the place.

Ghorepani Poonhill which is one among the best of Annapurna destination with outstanding beauty is doable even in winter. Since ages Mountain Monarch has been effectively organizing Poonhill trip for Christmas group that has always offered crystal clear weather and a great time in the Lake city of Pokhara. Morning and evening might be unpleasantly cold but days are unbelievably alluring.

Mountain Monarch provides you with very warm sleeping bag and feather duvet jackets which people have used it even while climbing a peak which is the mother of all warm clothing's. We also provide you with duffle bag to fit all your gears in and very warm fleece liner that goes into your sleeping bag to keep you warm and cozy during night chill.

Yes , this Annapurna Panorama poonhill trek can be customize asper your time duration and requirements. Simply let us know your tentative time of your visit to Nepal.

We oppose the use of plastic mineral water bottles for environmental concern. Instead our staff will supply you with appropriately boiled water every morning and evening. We suggest you to bring 1 metal or plastic Nalgene bottles so that you can have enough to last the duration of the day

Tea houses in 5 days Poonhill trek are basic with twin bed sharing room and common toilets. But basic here doesn’t mean you are sleeping in a dormitory rooms, privacy is well maintained. These tea houses are more of an extension of their own local houses which evidently means very cultural and traditional environment setting. Travelers have always appreciated the quality and quantity of food in Poonhill trek that has multiple choices including traditional local food variety.

We cover around 50 km - 31 miles starting from Nayapul –Ghorepani – Hille – Nayapul.
