Need partner(s) for the Gorepani (Poon Hill)-Ghandruk Loop Trek

Hello,

I’m looking for a partner or small group for the 6-day Gorepani-Ghandruk Loop trek. My plans are quite flexible but ideally I’d like to set out on November 12 or within a couple of days after that. I’d like to hire a guide and porter since it’s my first trek but I’m open to other ideas, nothing is arranged at the moment.

Budget: max US$50 per day (including accomodation, food, guide/porter fees, etc.)

Let me know if anyone is interested!

-Kate

  1. Hi Kate,
    I’m a 27 year female also planning on doing Ghorepani-Poon hill trek for 5 days. I am planning to leave Nov 18. Perhaps our goals may align if you would like to tell me a little about yourself? About me: I’m originally from Nepal but working in Australia in healthcare and I grew up in NZ. I’ve hiked a fair bit in NZ but haven’t done a long trek in a while so my fitness is not that great. I’m just going for cultural experience/views/meeting people and taking it easy.

  2. Hi Kate and Shrestha (??),
    would be very interested in doing this short trek with you both and your budget sounds great Kate-happy to get a porter and guide and share this cost. I’m currently organising a short trek 5 days to Manang (starting either 6th or 7th Nov) which would mean I will arrive in Pokhara either 12/13th Nov so would be happy to start 13/14th Nov. My problem is I need to be back in Kathmandu by 21st Nov for my flight to India so probably have to start latest 14th Nov…you can email me at eva.riddell@gmail.com if you’d like to discuss further or I’ll be in Kathmandu from this Monday 4th-6th if by chance either of you are around and would like to meet up.

    Brief background: I’m 27, from NZ and have been travelling Europe and Asia for the last 3 months (have one month of travel left!). Have trekked a lot in NZ, Asia and recently in Europe but am keen for an easy-going trek given I’m not currently as fit as previously.

    Hope to chat soon,
    Eva

  3.

    i can be contacted at moonbeam29@hotmail.co.uk

  4. Yea I’m definitely still looking for partners! Eva, I emailed you at the address you provided a few days ago and I’ll do the same for you (globetrekkerme’s name 🙂 ). I’ll be arriving on the 10th and I’d like to start the trek on the 11 or (preferably) 12th. Nothing is arranged or anything yet and all companies I’ve contacted so far ended up being out of budget so it’s probably better to just arrange everything there. You can reach me at kanderson985@gmail.com.

    Keep in touch!

  5. oops sorry its Santhi here! im online right now if you are up for a quick chat!

  6. Hello everyone!
    I’m Franziska (27) from Germany and am also searching for some trekking partners to do the Ghorepani-PoonHill-Trek with, preferably starting on November 12th. SO, would it be possible to join you guys? And what would be the exact date of the trek?

    And I would also recommend the following website to you: trekbooking.com . I’ve found different offers (guide, accommodation, food) by different agencies that would meet your budget plans, I think. Just check that out.

    Hope to hear from you (my email is: fancily@gmx.de)

    Franziska

  7. I’ve also emailed you, Franziska.

    Just wanted to mention that if anyone has found any offers that sound good and meet my aforementioned budget (US$50 per day max!), I’ll more than likely be down for it. As it looks now I’ll be getting into Pokhara from Bandipur on the 11th so I can’t start then, but the 12th-14th is still golden. 🙂

  8. Hi 🙂 are you still Looking for partners? I will arrive in pokhara tomorrow (13.nov) and if you still need some people to travel with and not have started the trek before I am very intetested to join 🙂 I am 22 years old, from norway , easygoing love to chat and laugh. I have some expirience with trekking in norway but not in Nepal ! If it is possible for me to join you please email me on anettechristensen@live.no.
