Ghorepani- Poon Hill Trekking  |  5 Days

Ghorepani Poonhill trekking is a short and lively walk on foothills in the Annapurna region. It is a popular trekking in Nepal, suitable for every type of trekkers, who love to explore the Himalayan panoramas, green hills, ethnic settlements and their culture. Heading through the lush forests of rhododendron and oak, the trip leads to the beautiful settlement of Gurung and Magars, offers the Annapurna Himalayan panoramas, waterfalls, terraced rice fields and incredible hospitality of the local people.

Poon hill and Ghandruk are the significant places in the Ghorepani, Poon Hill and Ghandruk trekking package. Poon Hill is located at 3210m above the sea level. It is a superb viewpoint of Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Annapurna (8,091m) Fishtail (6,997m) Annapurna South, Himchuli and other neighboring peaks. It is an awesome view of sunrise over the Himalayan range. The green hills, gorges and lush forests are seen from this viewpoint. Gradually, when the trip leads to the Ghangruk village, trekkers feel its a part of heaven. It is the habitation of Gurung, who are known as Gurkhas. Gurkhas have glorious history they created in the Second World War. It is surrounded by terraced farm lands. The ethnic groups have distinct language, costumes, rituals and lifestyles. Their folk traditions are popular even in the national level. The mountain views are again breath taking from this village. Several streams on the trekking trail entice the trekkers frequently in Annapurna trekking holidays.

Ghorepani Poon Hill trekking begins from Nayapul after a one and half hour drive from nature covered city Pokhara. Heading by the Bhurungdi Khola, it passes through the terraced rice fields, steep climb up at Ulleri, panoramic journey through the rhododendron forest, sunrise view from Poon Hill, ethnic culture at Ghandruk and finally returns to Pokhara. The trail is also rich in fauna in the Annapurna Conservation area. Please, contact us for Ghorepani Poon Hill trek information.

    I met Kisan at airport and he arranged Poonhill trekking. I met a wonderful young porter, Saroj. He is just 23 year old however he is smart & sweet and speaking English well. During my journey, he was not a porter but a guide. He talked about mountains, cultures as well as he arranged every thing and took care of me very well. Good Vibe Advendure team is pretty young and they know what tourists want. I see a bright future of Nepal and Nepal people. If I go back to Nepal, I will contact Kisan and get his advice

    We are a couple and didn't have many days off for trekking in Nepal. After seeing a good review for GoodVibe, I contacted with Kisan for arranging a short trek to Poon Hill. He was very friendly and helpful, he arranged the flight tickets Pokhara - Kath for us just 2 days before the trips in the high trekking season in Nepal. And we met our guide Ram, who was also friendly and helpfully, he gave us a good advice to trek back the same way when our speed was slow and in other to catch up the flight back Kath on time. He also helped the teahouse cook to make mo-mo and Korean noodle for us. We're very appreciated.  Because of good service and good price of Good Vibe, we'll meet again if we're back Nepal for another trekking trips.

    Good Vibe Adventure like the name offered us great trekking vibe which made us think about coming back Nepal for the Upper Mustang trip on the nearly last day of the trek:) After researching and contacting with other agency we decided to go with GoodVibe Adventure as they were very responsive since the first day we made inquiry and pricing was very reasonable for us. They event applied TIM cards for us before we arrived to pay them. We took 5 days PoonHill trek and had Ramkrishna as the guide and Chandra as porter to support. They were friendly helpful along the trip, ensured we had room with great view and well-served meals . We were first time trekkers in this kind of 5’days trek and i’m not the gym person so Ram was patiently waiting for me to catch up and ensure we were able to cope wit the trek. Along the way we accumulated knowledge about Nepal culture and lifestyle with him too. That last five days trip we didn’t need to worry anything from transportation , accommodation to meals. Kisan picked us right at the airport at the late night to our hotel, we took private car to Pokhara starting the trek from Nayapul. On the way back to Kathmandu they arranged us very comfortable tourist bus with free breaki and lunch.Also upon departing in the tourist bus,my friend realized that she left her favorite tumble in our private car we hired in pokkara and Ramkrisna has gone beyond his call of duty to search and returned it to my friend.therefore we would like to highlight and thank Ram for it. They also arranged the car to pick us at the bus station and drove up to Nagarkot and city tours after that. We would highly recommended this agency for their dedication service, friendliness and great support for tourist .  We think that we are very lucky to have such fantastic memory on our 1st trip to Nepal,mostly with the thoughtful and dedicated service of Kisan,Ram andChandra.So thank you and hope to see you again soon,for upper Mustang! -from Anh and Thanh

Then, i must say i am really glad to make it here.not only My 1st trekking trip abroad for 4 days(the longest ever made),but the reward is priceless.not just for the view but the feeling of overcoming fears and doubts . All of this can not be made possible without the arrangement and help from good vibe adventure.not only the price is very reasonable (we did our research quite well and can confidently say so) but the service provides is way beyond the call of duty.thanks a lot to Kisan,Ram and Chandra.

    Shortly after arriving at Kathmandu airport and by pure chance I met Kisan Thapa of Good Vibe Adventure and we became fast friends. He immediately ordered a taxi and recommended that I stay at the lovely Hotel Sweet Town in Kathmandu followed by a meeting at his office. Kisan organised everything for me including fantastic 5 day Himalaya trekking with private guide, transfers, return flight, mountain passes etc. etc. at a great price. Kisan is a very honest, articulate and caring young man with great tenacity. Thank you so much for making my stay in Kathmandu very special and memorable. I very highly recommend this company and I speak as someone who has many years travelling experience.

    My friends and I booked a 5-day Poon Hill trek from Kisan at Good Vibe. Communication was prompt and Kisan helped to arrange a guide, porter, domestic flights, accommodation and meals for our trek. Even a city day tour of Kathmandu when we had a free day. When our domestic flight from Pokhara to Kathmandu was cancelled, Kisan quickly arranged for a car to bring us to Kathmandu airport, and even followed us to the airport to ensure that we caught our connecting flight back to Singapore. Top notch hospitality.

    When I decided to finally visit Nepal, I researched some agencies over the internet and I found several agencies. I emailed 3 of them, and Good Vibe Adventure was one of them. The reply that I received got my attention, since the owner (Keshab) took the time to write me a detailed itinerary with all the attractions required with the best cost I found among the 2 others agencies. He even gave me sincere advises about places.This is when I decided to book with them and I was not disappointed. The services that were promised were delivered and even more it was one of the best services I have got in my travels. The staff and the guides are so friendly and have the required experience and the know-how. It was my first trip to Nepal and I was spoiled. The driver Indra was one of the nicest and most polite person I have ever met, The guide in Kathmandu Ary can tell you each and every single thing you need to know about any temple, stupa or any building, this guy has a lot of info,speaks 4 languages and extremely funny. The Trekking guide Sudeep is the real deal in the mountains, he is calm, polite and can be really funny. I have met Keshab's brother as well and he is a nice guy as well. I was even invited to their house. Good Vibe made my trip an unforgettable experience and provided us with extremely good services better than I even expected, very good hotels, lodges and staff. These guys are professional,they didn't make us need anything, everything was ready, planned and perfect. I even enjoyed the road trips from Kathmandu to Pokhara with them. I am going back hopefully in December and I will definitely use their services. Thank you Keshab, Thank you Good Vibe

    This is the first time trekking for me and my husband. (We trekked Ghorepani-Ghandruk route) It was quite new for us to travel like this. Before traveling we had a few information about trekking in Nepal and chose Good Vibe from our friend recommended. It’s very right! to choose them. They took care us very well through the trip. Our porter is professional. He know well about the route and can provide nice hotels for us. Especially the owner (Kisan and Keshab) they’re so friendly and no hard sell. Over all it’s so amazing trip. Now we hope Nepal will become all right soon. We intent to trek at ABC route for the next time.

    Friends of ours recommended Good Vibe so we planned and booked a great part of our Nepal trip with them. We had a good communication via email before we came to Nepal and discussed and "fine-tuned" the itinerary in advance so we could start right on our 2nd day in Nepal.  We had 9 days with the Good Vibe Team including Rafting on the Trisuli River (great fun, great guide, felt safer than going on by tourist bus), safaris in Chitwan (also great guides, saw a lot of incredible anbimals) and the Poon Hill Trek. Special thanks to our guide Sundip, you're the best! He took care of everything, explained a lot, answered all our questions and saved our day by lending Tim his hiking pole and carrying our huge backpack on the last day.  What might also be of interest for other travellers: it might seem a little slow & chaotic when you plan & confirm the trip with them in their office (lots of paper work, lot of double-checking, lot of phone calls) but everything was well organised and we were always picked up, got all our connections and ended up in the right places. And it's no problem to change the itinerary or bring in your own ideas. If you don't like s.th. you can tell them and they will find a solution. The price was also reasonable and they told us before the trip whom we don't have to tip because they are fully payed by the company and whom we should tip if we were happy with their services (these goes for the part-time /free-lance-guides).  They only thing we could complain about is the weather on the first day of trekking, the rain was really not necessary! ;-)  Thank you Keshab and Sundip for this great adventure in your beautiful country!

    I had many adventures in Nepal but the best ones were thanks to Good Vibe Adventure!  I was lucky to find this travel agency because they are really professionals and good people.  I went first to Chitwan National Park, the hotel I stayed was really confortable and the staff really nice, I saw crocodriles, rhinos , deers and monitor lizards was not able to spot tigers just a fresh footprint!  Then after going to this trip i decide to went to trekking to Poon hill to se Anapurnas. It was awesome! I allways remember this, the landscapes were impresive as well as the food!  In my last night Keshab the owner of good vibe took me to a nice dinner at a local restaurant, I feel at home fare away home in Nepal.  Thanks Keshab for my once on a life travel!  Alex from Mexico

The view is sooooooo beautiful and this is my first time that walking through the real forest. Also our guide Sudip is very nice. He is the one that who not only take good care to me also talk to me to let my not be too nervous and make me believe that all people in Nepal is kind and full with passion. He gives me the courage to start talking with local people. Also the sunrise is beautiful. Thank to everyting.
