Poonhill hot spring trek is one of the most popular
short treks in Nepal situated in Annapurna region. This trek is suitable for
the guest who has not much time in Nepal and wants to enjoy the nature of Nepal.
10 Days Poonhill hotspring trek offers you to observe the best view
of fully nature of landscape, high hills, rhododendron forest, water fall on
the way and the best view of high white snow peaks. We get chance to see the
sunrise form poonhill (3210m) with the closer view of Annapurna I (8091m), Dhaulagiri (8171m), Machhapuchhre
(6997m), Annapurna South (7219m) and many
peaks with its full range. And, visitor after their trekking they go to hot spring
for shower on the bank of Gandaki River. The water comes from inside of the
rock so it is warm. There was saying if we bath at the hot spring it will cure
our body pain and feel body relief. So, most of the trekker shower at the hot spring
in the end of their trek.
10 Days trekking start driving form Pokhara to Nayapul. Then,
we walk to ulleri via birathati (first check in point of the trekking). On the second
of trekking we walk to Ghorepani an, amazing Gurung community village. On another
day we walk uphill to poonhill for sunrise. After the sunrise and breakfast at
tea house we walk to tadapand by the Rhododendron forest. We walk downhill to
Jhinu and Hot spring. We relax at hot spring for some hour and get relief for
our leg pain. The warm water on the hot spring comes direct from inside the stone.

Autumn (Sept. to Nov.) and spring (March to May) are the best seasons
for the Jhinu hot spring via Poonhill Trekking. The weather is sunny and warm
with outstanding views. If you wish to avoid crowds and enjoy some alone time
with nature then taking this trip during winter (Dec., Jan. and Feb.) could
also be an option. However, the temperature during winter could be harsh for
most guests. Trekking in the Summer or Monsoon seasons (June to Aug.) will be
affected by rain but the Summer trek could be a boon for a keen botanist.
