After about 5 hours with the lunch break, you reach Tikhedhunga, a small but beautiful place on the foothills, to spend the night today.
  • Day 5Tikhedhunga – Ghorepani 3,210m – B.L.DThe very first half of the trekking today is a steep uphill walk for about 2 hours on nicely paved stone steps up to the village of Ulleri. The snow-capped Himalayan peak peeking from between green mountains will make your early morning uphill trekking effort worthy. After a short but deserved break, start trekking further up towards Ghorepani. Walk through a forested area mostly of the rhododendron trees and head towards the destination of the day. Reach Ghorepani to be welcomed by fresh breeze blowing from the high Himalayas and stunning view of the Himalaya on a clear day.

The first part of the trek takes you uphill almost to the height of Poonhill on the other mountain just opposite to it and then the trek descends for the lunch break of the day. After lunch walk further down just to go for another short step walking uphill to Tadapani.

    女儿成年礼全家选择来尼泊尔走poonhill,在这家旅行社预订了包车和徒步套餐。这是两兄弟开设的旅行社,哥哥负责加都业务,弟弟夫妇负责博卡拉业务。弟弟的太太是中国人,随时在线解答问题,很方便。老板兄弟都非常热情,亲自去加都机场接机,安排的背夫也很热情,服务周到。他家在博卡拉有一家酒店,全新开业,设施齐全,位置闹中取静,价格也很适中。回国那天还免费安排送机,真让我有点儿不好意思了。兄弟两人认真打拼事业的态度很值得敬佩。
