Overview

Poon Hill Trek 3 days 2 nights is easily the best short trek from Pokhara.

We shortened the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek 5 days 4 nights into Poon Hill Trek 3 days 2 nights by using a 4×4 wheel Jeep that brings you all the way from Pokhara to Ulleri (2070m). Within the first day, you will arrive at Ulleri (2070m) at about 11am. You will then walk to Banthanti (2300m) for lunch, and then continue the trek after lunch for about 3.5 hours. You will reach Ghorepani (2860m) before sunset, where Poon Hill (3193m) is a mere 1 hour trek from where you will be staying on Day 1.

There will be a guide and porter following you the entire trek. This is a short and easy trek from Pokhara.

We have a blog here – Poonhill Trek itinerary – How long does Poon Hill trek take? 3, 4 or 5 days?

This Poon Hill Trek 3 days is highly recommended!
