    Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

    Rating:

    Ghore Pani Poon Hill Trek upon our arrival, we were warming welcomed by the company. Reasonable Treks and Tour owner Mr. Anil Dhungana We never stressed about late arrivals or transportation. Everyone was found punctual about time (and early in most cases). All guides and drivers were courteous, knowledgeable and professional the day trekking we had was the perfect combination of fun, educational, and relaxing. We felt we had the perfect amount of time in each place. Along the way, our travel agent was checking up with the guides to make sure everything was going well. We even met up with him towards the end of the trip so he could make sure everything went well. It was such a nice gesture and not something everyone would do. He really cares for his clients, and I hope we get to travel to Nepal or its surroundings again With Reasonable Treks and Tour so we can use his services again. Thank you so Much Mr. Anil DHungana And his Team we will Return Back next Time

  • Proper clothing: Strong durable warm jackets, sweat-absorbent clothes for trekking, inner layers, undergarments, trousers, and socks.
  • Gears: hats, beanies, buff/balaclava, gloves, and Hiking/trekking shoes.

Guides & Porters on Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 

It is completely up to you to hire guides and porters. But it surely is highly recommended that you do so. Not only will the guide help you in the trek by leading you to your destination, but he will also be your Nepali companion for the trek.  He will help with dealings to be made in lodges, communicate in Nepalese in the villages and other necessities during the trek. The number of guides and porters vary depending on the number of guests and the amount of luggage. This may not be fixed precisely in advance due to unpredictable conditions in the mountains.

Electricity/ Recharge & Internet on Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 

Wi-Fi is now widely available in most of the teahouses and lodges in the trekking area, albeit the speeds are lower, but as you trek to higher altitudes the speed may be far slower than what you may be used to.  The connection may also be disrupted by weather conditions. The lodges generally sell Wifi card for NRs. 350 or NRs. 500. As you climb further in altitude, the standard lodges there are very cheap, and one of the factors is they don’t provide electricity for luxuries like charging your electronics. You need to pay hourly up to 2-4 USD for that, it is advised to take a fully charged power bank so you have something to rely on when you climb higher.

Medical Facility on Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 

We recommend that you bring some medications that you would normally use for a headache, flu, stomach problems, and other common sicknesses along with you. In addition to this, your trekking guide will also most likely be traveling with a first aid kit. Most guides are also well versed in first aid procedure and basic medical and life aid, which they have garnered through training and experience. There are small medical stations around the villages, which can help with primary treatment.  The prominent hospitals are down in Pokhara, which you can get to through helicopter rescues if things go very uncharacteristically awry.

Altitude Sickness on Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 

Altitude sickness can happen to anyone. At high altitudes, you have to maintain a slow and steady pace giving your body the least amount of work to do. Once you ascend an altitude of 3200 meters, you have to take a step further in being careful. The worst part here is that altitude sickness cannot be cured or removed in an instant. It can lead to other problems such as high altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE)! As soon as you see the symptoms (shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia, headache, nausea, etc.) of it, it is best to descend right away. Medications such as Diamox can help you to minimize the effects of the altitude sickness. It is better to stay hydrated, get adequate rest and acclimatize to the location to avoid this sickness.

Best Season to travel on Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek  

One of the most important things you must know before going off a trek is to know the best time to go on the trek. It isn't as easy as going off whenever you want to. The climate and the unpredictable weather during particular seasons can make a big difference in your experience of the trek. It is best to avoid the monsoon and peak winter season for treks in the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek The ideal time to trek is considered to be around October to early December and late February to April. There is a lower risk of heavy snowfall and dangerous slippery trails.
