The Poon Hill Trek is one of our favourite treks and we’d be delighted to help you explore this impressive region in Nepal.

Enjoy the beauties of the Annapurna region on this short but worthwhile trek. With a lower altitude profile, trekkers require less time to acclimatise and the trek is less strenuous. Nevertheless, it offers a great taster of the region with impressive views and culturally interesting villages. The entire trail is well developed and cosy tea houses offer a welcoming atmosphere and good quality food and accommodation. The trek starts in Naya Pul after short drive from Pokahara – the traditional gateway to the Annapurna region.

Poon Hill itself is a very popular view point with fantastic views of Dhaulagiri (8,167m), famous Annapurna I (8,091m), Machapuchare (6993m) – also known as Mt. Fishtail due to its characteristic shape, Tukuche (6920m), Nilgiri (6940m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Annapurna South (7219m), Lamjung Himal (6931m) and many others. The trip includes a visit to Ghandruk, the second largest Gurung settlement.
