    Our Kathmandu journey starts amidst the city's colorful way of life, traveling to historical sites like Pashupatinath Temple and Boudhanath Stupa. Visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, famous for Nepal's rich history, putting the stage for the approaching tranquility of the Poon Hill own family trek.

Passing through vibrant rhododendron forests and quaint Gurung villages, we're embraced by the warmth of local hospitality. Ulleri, with its iconic stone steps, unveils the rich traditions of the Magar community, inviting us into their world. We will pass by Banthanti and Ghorepani on our journey.

    Sunrise at Poon Hill ignites the Himalayas in a brilliant display, forever etching the majestic peaks onto our souls.  Our trek descends to Ghandruk, a village cradled by the Gurung people, where a deep sense of accomplishment and connection to the Himalayas takes root. Subsequently, you'll trek to Kimche before returning to Pokhara for a final night in the city.  When we return to Pokhara, we carry an aura of adventure and the eternal charm of Nepal's mountains alongside us.

    You can connect with NHT for a more personalized family trek, according to your preference, and create memories that last a lifetime.

    When To Book The Poon Hill Family Trek?

    Before you step away for an extraordinary Family Ghorepani Poon Hill trek, let's uncover the perfect season for this unforgettable adventure. The refreshing mountain air, clean skies framing majestic snow-capped peaks, and gentle trails make spring and autumn the ideal seasons for the whole family to enjoy.

    Spring and autumn offer comfortable temperatures, making the adventure a joy for the family. No sweltering warmth, no bone-chilling cold – just the proper balance for conquering the one's trails and reveling in the fresh mountain air. The paths are like ribbons unfurling via the panorama, free from the mud that monsoons can bring, making your trek a smoother and more exciting experience.

    Winter, while offering its unique charm, demands extra layers and preparation. Monsoon, though tempting with its lush greenery, can make the trails challenging.

    So, if you want to experience the beauty of the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek at its finest, plan your trip in Spring or Autumn.

    How Challenging Is The Journey?

    While it's true that the trek involves some uphill and downhill climbs, don't let that discourage you - this is an easy to moderate-trek that's suitable for most people with average physical fitness levels. The trail is also well-established. And there are plenty of opportunities to take breaks and rest along the way. As long as you can walk for 4-6 hours per day, you should be able to complete the trek without any issues. 

    Now, you may ask, is there any chance of getting altitude sickness? Well, the answer is no! You don’t need to worry about that. As the trek takes you to a high altitude of 3,210 m, there’s little to no chance of getting altitude sickness at this height. Thus, it would be the perfect holiday for your family.

    Are There Any Alternative Adventures?

    The answer is yes! There are several alternative adventures that you can look into if you don’t like this one.

    The Mardi Himal Trek is the first one that you can look into. This trek is an excellent alternative for those looking for a less crowded trekking route. The trail takes you through traditional Nepalese villages and lush forests before ascending to high alpine terrain. The trek presents you with stunning views of Machhapuchhre and the Annapurna range.

    Second up, we have the Annapurna Base Camp Short Trek. This trek takes you to the base of one of the highest peaks in the world, Annapurna I. Along the way, you'll pass through picturesque villages, terraced fields, and dense rhododendron forests, all while enjoying panoramic views of the Annapurna range.
