The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a stunning, brief, and captivating journey that can be undertaken throughout the year. However, if you desire clear mountain vistas accompanied by vibrant rhododendron blooms, it is recommended to visit during the spring months of March to May. For the most favorable weather conditions, the autumn season from September to November is ideal. During the peak seasons of autumn and spring, the trekking routes tend to be crowded with visitors. If you prefer to avoid the crowds, winter and summer are viable options. Although these seasons are not as popular for trekking in Nepal, the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek can still be considered during this time. If the weather permits, you will be rewarded with breathtaking mountain views even during the winter and rainy seasons. If you plan to trek during these seasons, it is essential to bring appropriate gear to combat the cold and rain.

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is located within the Annapurna Conservation Areas, making it necessary to obtain two specific permits: the Annapurna Conservation Area permit (ACAP) and the Trekkers Information Management System card (TIMS). In order to acquire these permits, you will need to provide a copy of your passport and passport-sized photos. The cost of the permits, which is USD50 per person, is already included in the package.
