In these seasons, temperate is moderate. Mother nature starts blooming in its full colors. The mountain views are unobstructed and clearer. You can enjoy spectacular sceneries all around with serene weather conditions. 

Food & Accommodation

Poon Hill Trek has relatively advanced routes so you don’t have to worry about food & accommodation much. Your accommodation will be in a comforting teahouse. The rooms might be smaller in size with twin sharing beds but will be clean and comfortable. 

You will have your breakfast and dinner in the teahouse you stayed. Dal and Bhat is the most preferable food. You can also have noodles, soup, momos, pizzas, eggs, and even non-veg items. For water, you can ask for boiled filter water in teahouses. 

Is Poon Hill Trek Difficult? 

The total Poon Hill Trek distance is 32 miles (51 KM) that will be covered in 4 days. With the maximum elevation of 3210 meters, you will be walking about 5-6 hours on average. That is why this trek is suitable for amateurs. There are rare chances of getting Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). 

But on the way to Poon Hill early morning, you might face some difficulties. Thus, it is recommendable to drink hot water beforehand. Whilst on the trek, you have to take care of everything. Drink enough water and don’t stress your body much. Take enough rest and follow a healthy diet.
