Although trekking is possible throughout the year each season has different advantages and attractions and advantages offer for trekking in the Annapurna region. The temperature in the mountains also depends according to the altitude range – higher the altitude, lower the temperature. March-May Trekking season begins after March. Trekking in the spring between mid-March and mid-April means that you will get to see the incredible displays of Rhododendrons that flower in the forests around Ghorepani. Temperature starts rising from mid-March up to mid-May. Weather is cool at this time. The sky is very clear and you can enjoy the clearest views of the mountains. June-August It usually rains during this season. Monsoon generally begins around the end of June and continues up to the second week of August. The temperature during the days usually ranges from 10°C to 23? and gets relatively colder at night ( 5°C to 10?) mornings are usually clear with clouds building up during the afternoon and disappearing again at night. Because of the rainfall Rhododendron forests around Ghorepani will be rife with leeches. However, the northern sections around the Mustang Region don’t get as affected by the monsoon as it lies within a rainshadow area Though the rain may cause some problems. Various plants bloom during this season, the valleys will be a green and totally different view than during other seasons. Please note that rain clouds may back views and mudslides are common around the entire circuit. September-October This is a favorite among tourists with the most favorable weather and perfect climate condition. The sun shines brightly the skies are clear you get a superb view of mountains and the temperature is perfect for a daytime trek. you can enjoy spectacular starry skies since the sky is clear at night. The monsoons will be over by early September and the weather ranges from mild to warm days. Daytime temperatures can reach up to 20c in high altitudes, the nights are cold, temperatures may go down around 5c.the greens that grew during monsoon fade to golden/amber proving a spectacular contrast against the crystal blue skies, grains are ripening in the enclave. The environment is clean and lowlands are lush. The biggest festivals of Nepal like Dashain, Tihar also fall during this season.this is the busiest period on the Annapurna Circuit and lodges book up quickly, we recommend booking with Discovery world Trekking as soon as possible for this season. November November is a busy season, the clearest month, with a crisp and sparkling sky. The daytime temperatures at this month are usually the most stable, from mild to cool conditions, the humidity is also pretty dry with very cold nights. December-February The coldest time is from December through early February, after late February, climate gradually gets warmer Temperatures to get extremely cold dropping to -5 degree C at high altitudes. daytime is pleasantly and relatively warm with sunshine. At over 5,000 meters, Thorung La Pass is often deluged with snow and will close for days on end when this happens. Despite being cold the skies are usually very clear, mountain views are at their best. with snowy caps, it might snow and the ground will be snow the trails are the least busy at this time.it may not be the best season for beginners but experienced trekkers will have no problem. Do keep in mind that late February- early March is also the period in the Annapurna Region when avalanches are most common. Please Note: Weather in the Himalaya can be unpredictable and change quickly; temperature can vary vastly from day to night.

All foreigners except Indian nationals must have a valid visa to enter into Nepal. Visa is available on arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport upon entry in Kathmandu, Nepal and at Nepal borders of India and Tibet. Visa can be easily extended at the central immigration office. www.immigration.gov.np; Visa application requires a passport with at least 6 months until expiration and one passport -size photo. The current cost of the visa for 30 days is US$40(to be paid in cash) for 30 days that is required to make in cash. Other currencies are also accepted although rates may differ. Other nationalities should check entry requirements. visitors are requested to specify return flight tickets, time intended stay in Nepal. We recommended you schedule at least 1-2 day extra at the end of the trip just in case there is a delay. If no delay occurs we can arrange an additional activity for your time in Nepal. To help calculate the exact dates of these crossings we have found the website www.timeanddate.com to be very useful. The children under the age of 10 will get the free visa. Please be advised to check the current regulation. Visa regulation can change without prior notice. Citizens of China, as well as citizens of South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Pakistan and Sri Lanka), get the free visa. countries not entitled to get a visa upon arrival are Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan If you are a citizen of one of these countries, please contact your local Nepalese embassy.

Nepali Rupees (NPR/Rs) is the local currency. (1 USD = ~ Rs.100 NPR). We can exchange most of the foreign currencies through local banks and legitimate money exchanges in Kathmandu and all over Thamel. Small amounts of cash can also be exchanged at the hotel. The ongoing rate of exchange is visibly displayed. The government of Nepal has banned the import, export, and use of 500 and 1000 Indian Rupee note in Nepal. You should ensure that you are not carrying these notes on arrival in Nepal as they will be confiscated and you may also be fined. Despite having security advantage of traveler’s cheque, we prefer cash exchange to avoid hassles like a lengthy process and high rate of commission at the banks. You can withdraw cash (in Rupees only) from one of the many ATMs in Kathmandu and Thamel itself. There are quite several ATMs that are open around the clock. The maximum withdrawal amount is 35,000 Rupees for a 500 Rupees processing fee if you are using your foreign card. If you use the money exchange facility at banks and financial institutions the service fee charge imposed is about four percent or more depending upon the bank. Please note that most of the established banks in Asia will not accept foreign currency notes that are old, torn or faded. Please ensure that you have new, clean notes.

The most importantly, tipping is at travelers discretion and should be relied on good service that does not form the part of wages for your Guides, porters, and crew although they are very much appreciated. In Nepalese culture, a tip is the accepted and honored way of saying thank you (Dhanyabada) for good service. Normally the tips are offered at the end of the trek and this is best done as a group. Most groups will give the trips in farewell dinner on the last evening or last day of the trek, to mark the end of the trip. The amount of the trip is entirely a personal preference that may be more or less depending upon your perception of service quality, length of trip, budget, and appreciation of their work. It is important to Discovery World Trekking crews who professionally take care of you all the time during the trekking, inspire excellent service and offer enriching journey- the trip of once in a lifetime experience. We ensure that all of our crews including guides and porters are paid well and treated fairly with respect.

One Review to “Poon Hill Ghandruk Trek”

    • marilinepinto

    I was recommended to contact Mohan by some friends who had done a few treks with North Nepal agency and I’m really happy I did so because from the first time I contacted him, he has been attentive, kind and demonstrated a high sense of customer care, accommodating my needs and adjusting the plans even with short notice!
    I’m also very very happy and satisfied with the guide assigned to us! Niraj was this incredible young boy full of energy and always willing to explain the local traditions, clarify all the questions and solve any requests we might have. He has been an incredible company during the time we spent in Pokhara and in the 3-day PoonHill trek!
    Would definitely recommend these guys to everyone looking to spend some hassle free time in Nepal!!!
    Namaste!!
