The top of Poon Hill is one of the best places to gaze at the Himalayas in Nepal. Trek to the summit and see how beautiful the big wall in the north looks from here.
Poon Hill is a mountain of its own accord but is dwarfed in the presence of the Himalayan range. From the top of the hill, at an elevation of more than 10,000 feet, you can see the Annapurna massif together with adjacent peaks. So this trip combines both mountaineering and sightseeing. The beautiful villages and the pristine forests we walk through during the trip add to the experience.
- Moderate and the most popular short trek of Nepal.
- Ghandruk village and the stunning views of Annapurna and Machapuchre.
- Enjoy the view of beautiful Nepali villages, forests and of-course the majestic views of Himalayas.
- Poon Hill offers you the striking panorama of huge Himalayas including Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, III, and IV, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, and Manaslu ranges among few others.
