The Poonhill Trek is a great trek for the ones who only have 7 days available for trekking; who do not want a very hard trek, but yet is looking for a great and real trekking experience.

The Poonhill trek takes you through the beautiful Modi khola valley to finally reach atop Poonhill, a peak which gives paranomic views of the entire Annapurna range. At an altitude of 3210 meters the Poonhill peak lies at the centre of all the Annapurna peaks, Mt. Dhaulagiri in the North, Machhapuchhr and a valley to the South. The valley is inhabited by the ethnic groups of the Magars and Gurungs.

While heading down to Pokhara, we pass through the old village of the Gurungs - Ghandruk, a village which will give a lot of cultural inputs.

All in all, the Poonhill trek is a great little trek and has remained popular because of its relative ease, great trails and cultural inputs!

Breathtaking Trek Around Poonhill
Tristan Anthony Cox From Vietnam At
5 - Excellent
“I went to Nepal with my girlfriend this September. We didn't know about a lot of things as neither of us had been to Nepal before and we hadn't been properly hiking either and it was very difficult to know what to choose and plan. So we were very lucky to find Unique Adventure International! Right from the start Khum, the director, was very friendly, informative, quick to reply and made everything so easy. He gave us a detailed itinerary, responded to numerous questions with all the information we needed and changed the itinerary according to our specific needs. He arranged everything we needed such as travel to and from the airport, an internal flight, meeting our guide before and discussing everything with us, as well as helping us with various other smaller things.

About the trek itself... We decided to do the Poonhill Trek as we read that this is relatively one of the easiest treks and not too long so we could comfortably fit it into our holiday, but still with a lot to see and do. It was absolutely amazing with some of the most breathtaking scenery I've ever seen! Everything on the itinerary was really well thought out, the accommodation and food was really nice, and we enjoyed every moment. I'd really like to say a special thanks to Venn Dong our guide, who I'd highly recommend to anyone travelling to Nepal and Darma, our porter. They both did an excellent job and were always friendly and helpful throughout the trip, as well as teaching us about Nepal and different things we were curious about.

Now that I've had my first experience of Nepal I'm planning to go back a lot in the future and I'll definitely be using Unique Adventure International and Venn's services again!”
Great Poonhill trekking

“Me and my boyfriend had a really nice trip in Nepal this September and Unique Adventure International arranged our trek very well. We stayed at nice teahouses, had nice food and saw lots of beautiful places. Venn, our tour guide, and Darma, our porter, did a really great job. They have got really good experience and always helped us throughout the trip. I really highly recommend them if you are going on a trip to Nepal!”

“I´m a 35 year old man with some experience in travelling in Africa, Asia and South America.
The opportunity for me and my girlfriend was unique and outstanding.
The trekking was unbelievably beautiful (only problem was the bottles, covers of chocolats and trash that you could find somewhere), the people, we met and stayed with, were warm and open hearted, and the nature was pure and overwhelming. Great tour, will recommend!”
