Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking- 9 Days

Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking is a unique combination of Panoramic views in the Annapurna region. Within moderate altitude this terrific trip offers a chance to experience the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri ranges from different perspective. This trip is an interesting and rewarding addition to our classic Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking.

Our trekking itinerary starts at Nayapul, following the village of Hile, Tikhedhunga, Banthanti and Ghorepani. Next morning we start before breakfast for the amazing scenery from Poon Hill. We then descend back to Ghorepani for breakfast and continue to Dobato. Next morning similar hike as Poon Hill to Muldai View Point; we are rewarded with spectacular mountain views. Muldai View Point is a great addition to our existing Poon Hill itinerary. Standing at an altitude of 3640m, it’s absolutely delightful to encounter astonishing panoramic views of Mount Annapurna, Dhaulagiri range, Lamjung Himal, Mt. Fishtail, Gangapurna and variety of landscapes of enclosed lowlands.

After the amazing sunrise view, we descend to Dobato for breakfast and continue our trek to the beautiful Gurung capital of Ghandruk. This trek gives us a glimpse at Nepalese culture as the trail integrates traditions and rituals of local Gurung, Magar, Pun and other ethnic groups of Nepal. The changing vegetation, well maintained trekking trails, beautiful Tea Houses, mountain view and welcoming hospitality makes this trek a lifetime hiking and trekking experience in the Himalaya of Nepal.

This amazing trek can be done throughout the year. Graded as a moderate hiking, this trek is suitable for friends, families, small groups or private trips. Special offers for Christmas and New Year 2021. Get in touch : info@annapurnafoothills.com

Difficulty Rating of Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking

Any avid walker who is able to hike approximately 5-6 hours a day carrying a lightweight backpack will be fit enough to do this trek. We recommend you bring walking poles, as you will find them helpful especially in the long descents when your legs may feel shaky, and the stone steps are uneven. The altitude is only 3637m, so there is no altitude related risk.

 

Safe Drinking Water on Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking

We suggest that you drink boiled water or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. There is a small fee charged for the boiled water. Several guesthouses have Euro-guard filters. Although mineral water is available in most places, there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, so we encourage the guests to do what they can to protect the environment.

 

Re-charging Batteries of Electronic Items on the Trekking

You can recharge your digital camera, iPod, batteries etc. with electricity or solar power sources. You may need to buy an adaptor in Kathmandu before the trip since the plugs in Nepal might be different. The lodges charge a small fee per hour for recharging facilities.

Nepal uses 220-240 volts to power your appliances. The sockets fit both round and flat plugs.

 

Extra Advice for Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking

During the trekking, keep your valuable goods safe. Lock your door when you leave your guesthouse room. You are also advised not to leave your laundry hanging outside at night.

Don’t throw anything into the fire in any house, Buddhist or Hindu. In most cultures the household gods live in Kitchen.

 

Spending Money per Day

Although it depends on your spending habits, you should allocate US$ 10 - 12 per meal in Kathamndu. On the trek, US$9 - 12 a day should be enough to buy chocolates, Coca Cola and a beer.

 

Travel Insurance for Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking

It is strongly recommended to be sufficiently protected when you go into remote areas. You need specialized travel insurance that covers emergency evacuation, injury, lost baggage, liability and medical treatment. Make sure the insurance covers all the activities that you will be undertaking during your stay in Nepal. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition Pvt. Ltd. can organize the appropriate medical response based on your policy.

 

Washing and Toilet facilities for Poon Hill and Muldai Trekking:

Most lodges offer hot showers, though sometimes a hot shower means a bucket of hot water. You can ask your trekking guide about the availability. For ecological reasons please try and limit your use of hot water unless the water is solar-heated. Please note that at higher altitude and in colder seasons there is very little chance to have enough hot water for all the trekkers. If the water is frozen then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water. Every lodge will have some kind of hand washing facility but it is good idea to carry a bar of soap with you.

Toilets are usually Asian squat style and vary in how clean they are. Normally toilets are outside the lodge but now some lodges have attached or indoor toilets. The rubbish bin in the toilet is kept for your used toilet paper.

 

Tea Houses

On the popular trekking routes villagers have built tea house lodges with plenty of character and good food. The simple rooms usually have two narrow beds. When you stay in the tea houses you will have close contact with the Nepalese people and are directly contributing to the local economy.
