Ghorepani- Poonhill Trek Information

Travel Insurance

If you are planning your next trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal, then it is highly recommended that you get a travel insurance that covers all the additional and unforeseen expenses that might occur as a result of different injuries or accidents (together with ambulance, helicopter, rescue and other treatment cost) and various other health related issues. Moreover, the policy should also fund the entire activities that you are planning to take on throughout your stay in Nepal. In addition, the policy should also finance misplaced luggage, theft and liability, cancellations, medical treatment (including hospital charges, cost of the medicine and doctor’s fees), death and repatriation cost as well. This trek requires walking above the altitude of 4,000, therefore, it is kindly requested to ensure that your insurance policy covers trek that goes over 4000m. In short, all unforeseen expenses during the entire trek are trekkers’ sole responsibility.

Health, fitness and experience requirements:

Trekking along the trail of Annapurna region is identified as one of the long distance trekking in the world. Therefore, the trek demands good stamina, excellent health condition and the highest level of mental determination. Some sections of the trek take you to the altitude of over 4000m and some days require 7-8 hours of walking. Therefore, it is well recommended to plan your trek when you are at your best health condition.

The trek is considerably moderate and attainable. Yet, it is highly recommended that you seek advice, medication, and permission from your doctor before scheduling your trek. You can also take the help of the local General Practitioner in order to consult the necessary guide walks before planning the trek. (Running, cycling, or a few hours of uphill walking are considered as some of the best ways to practice for your next trek. This also helps in minimizing the potential effect of Altitude Mountain Sickness.) In the absence of GP, various travel clinics can also assist you with the needed guidance. However, this trek can be easily attained even without any technical knowledge, but prior hiking, trekking and camping experience will definitely make the walk easier. 

Note:

We kindly request you to submit your medical fitness certificate (which must include your present health condition, medical situation, preceding illness, and the medications you are taking) before booking the packages. We also request you to be honest so that we can get prepared and take quick action in case of any emergencies.

Meals and Accommodation:

In order to ensure a comfortable stay and relaxed ambiance, we do the booking in one of the best tourist standard hotels before and after your trek. The rooms offered by these hotels are normally twin share, which requires you to share your room with another member of your group. However, this totally depends upon the size of your group and the availability of rooms in the hotel. Triple share is also available on request and a single supplement room is also available at an additional cost.

During the trek, your stay is arranged in local guesthouses or lodges (with shared amenities) en route. You can enjoy a hot shower in most of these lodges, however, in the absence of hot shower few buckets of hot water will also be arranged by the lodge itself. A full board meal (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and tea & coffee) will be served from the teahouse menu. For breakfast usually western food like porridge, oatmeal, local bread, and toast are offered. The food served for lunch and dinner can be chosen from the teahouse menu.
