COMPLIMENTARY HALF DAY TOUR 

Pokhara Shanti Stupa, Standing on top of the Anadu Hill, Shanti Stupa adds beauty to the Pokhara Valley. It is a perfect holiday place providing a clear view of the Himalayan range, Fewa Lake and Pokhara city. The hilltop provides a splendid view of sunrise and sunset. Trip Advisor has ranked Shanti Stupa as the second top attraction in Pokhara. The Peace Pagoda shrine was built as a symbol of peace. Situated at the height of 1100 meters on the Anadu Hill, Nichidatsu Fujii laid the foundation stone along with relics of the Buddha on 12 September 1973; Nepal has two of the eighty peace pagodas in the world: Shanti Stupa in Lumbini, the birthplace of the Buddha and Shanti Stupa in Pokhara. Shanti Stupa in Pokhara has also become a tourist attraction. It provides a panoramic view of the Annapurna range, Pokhara city, and Fewa Lake.

Davi`s Falls is a small waterfall situated in Pokhara, Nepal’s Kaski district. There’s nothing else enchanting or even appealing about the waterfall at first glance, besides some splashes here and there. To completely experience its splendor, it must be visited at the monsoon season. During that time, water bursts through the rocky slopes and falls into a tunnel. The rapids’ crashing noise drowns human sound, and water spilling requires either a raincoat or an umbrella. The high waters don’t deter visitors from walking near the water. Davi`s Falls is famous among both Nepali and foreign tourists.   Visit this spectacular place at its best to see nature’s unblemished beauty.

Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave (known in local language as Bhalu Dulo) is regarded as one of Nepal’s longest caves over 2,000 meters long. The cave sits across Davi’s dropping, and one can hear the thundering sound of water inside the cave. According to local beliefs, the 16th-century cave was said to be discovered. During those days, there were no modern-day decorations you see today. The cave’s main entrance was only installed in 1991 AD.

Weather

Spring (Best Season): Starting from March to May, the spring season has a slightly warmer temperature ranging from 17 °C to 20 °C. But it is still the best time to trek after autumn as the forests come to life with blooming flowers and green trees. The air is filled with the fragrance of the flowers and the clear sky gives an uninterrupted view of mountains.

Summer/Monsoon (Low Season): Starting from June to August, the summer season is also known as the rainy season with daily temperature from 18 °C to 25 °C. It is also known as ‘off-season’ as the rain leads to landslides in the lower region and avalanches in the higher reason making it a very less preferable season. Though you can still trek in the season if you would have prepared accordingly having muddy and slippery routes with unclear sky you will find a lesser crowd.

Autumn (Best Season): September to November is the best season to plan a trek. The temperature starts from 15 °C to 17 °C with rain or snowfall. As the sky will be clear, sunrise and sunsets could be seen perfectly. Though you will find the trail very crowded but the trek is worth doing.

Winter (Low Season): Starting from December and lasting till February, winter days have temperature from 9 °C to 12 °C, whereas the temperature at night could fall down till -15 °C to -20 °C with foggy morning and unclear sky. Although lower regions are dry but upper regions are covered with a thick layer of snow which requires crampons to hike upon and winter clothes are a must.

The Trekking Group Size

For the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, there will be one leader, assistant chief (6 trekkers:1 assistant guide), and luggage carrier (2 trekkers:1 porters) This arrangement means that if someone in the group gets sick, the trip will proceed as scheduled. For groups of any size, we can run the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek, but usually, it’s a maximum of 10 members as we found this to be the key phrase for a wonderful trip. If you would like to book this trip for a large group, even so, this can also be arranged.

Important Notice

Climate conditions, a member’s wellbeing, unforeseen natural disasters, etc., may all lead to changes in the itinerary.

FAQ

Can you provide more information about your trekking guides?

Most of the guides in our adventure company come from mountainous areas. They are carefully selected on the basis of their experience, leadership skills, and personal aptitude. We provide guides that are experienced and fluent in English. With the objective of sustaining local communities, we employ guides from different ethnic backgrounds who have adequate knowledge about the culture, ecosystem, flora and fauna, geography, and history of Nepal.

Our guides have the required government license to guide tourists. They have all gone through intensive training programs like wilderness first aid, trekking guide training which are certified and approved by the government of Nepal.

Do I need to bring additional medicine for trekking?

We carry a first-aid box with us while trekking. But if you want you can carry along some essential medicines like ibuprofen, codeine, paracetamol, lozenges, anti-diarrhea tablets, and Diamox for AMS.

How do you avoid altitude sickness?

Please do note, all our trekking itineraries incorporate an adequate number of acclimatization days. You will get an extra day’s rest at a lower elevation to prepare your body for a walk-up in the higher reaches.

AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness usually occurs due to the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere in high altitudes. Our body is not used to walking in high altitude and it requires a lot of time to adapt to thin air in the mountains. Technically there is no way of stopping AMS but you can surely prevent it by following the given tips:

  • Keep your body hydrated. Drink at least 4 liters of water daily.
  • Give up smoking, alcohol, and caffeine, the major causes of dehydration and headache.
  • Go slow- it’s not a race. Take plenty of time to acclimatize to the increase in altitude.
  • Don’t skip the acclimatization day. Take Diamox, an over-the-counter pill used to prevent and reduce the symptoms of altitude sickness.

What happens if I need to leave the trekking beforehand?

If you have to leave the trekking due to ill-health or injury, an emergency air rescue will be arranged whereby an air ambulance/helicopter will fly you out of the mountains to Kathmandu for medical attention. Make sure your insurance covers high altitude mountain rescue. If you are able to walk down, one of the assistant guides will guide you down to a lower elevation where you can wait for the rest of the team or fly out to Kathmandu ahead of the group. Whether for health or personal reasons, please do keep in mind that refunds for the unused days of your trip will not be given. Even if you leave the trekking beforehand, we are committed to paying the porters, and guides for the duration of the trip for which they are hired. 

When is the best time for this trek ? Is it possible in winter also?

Post-monsoon and pre-monsoon are the best time in Nepal, i.e. March to May in spring and September to November in the autumn before the harsh winter is the perfect time to walk to Ghorepani Poonhill Trek when the view of the 10th highest peak in the world and its neighboring mountain is at its finest.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is possible even in winter (December to February). Though winter provides great weather, chances of temperature falling below the freezing point are probable. To catch Annapurna’s stunning beauty in winter, one should be well-equipped with winter equipment and mentally well prepared to face the worst chill weather situation.
