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!

4.5 - Excellent Based on 24 reviews
Very smooth trek, like a walk in the park

“Thanks to our leader Chris Chetri, we had a beautiful trek through the basis of the Annapurna mountains. We were a small group, none of us were experienced trekkers, so we really didn't know what to expect. I'm a slow walker and I like to marvel at all the different sites and the little details of nature. Chris was always amazingly patient and somehow always managed to get us to each lodge at the end of the day in perfect timing. Every detail was perfectly arranged, just like magic. The porters who travelled with us were also very professional and we made friends with them. I enjoyed this trip tremendously, as what I take from it is the calm, the serenity, the amazing Annapurna sights, and the feeling of freedom, with no pressure transferred on to us despite there being a schedule to maintain. I would travel with them again anytime. I miss Nepal a lot and that has much to do with the experience Chris Chetri and his team blessed us with. Namaste. :) _/\_”
Overall we had a great experience

“The monsoons impacted on the trek immensely. Almost all of the views could not be enjoyed. Their was no disclaimer or discouragement about going during monsoon season. The monsoons made it more dangerous and the leeches were a real nuisance.”
Excellent Ghorepani and Chitwan Tour

5 - Excellent
“Great trek round Ghorepani, 5 days with a lot of mountain steps, it was rainy season so not the best for visibility, that said we did get some clear time and stunning views. Our guide Raju was excellent. we all felt a real sense of achievement to have done the trek. We then went to Chitwan which was also great”
Hard work

4 - Very Good
“It was a really hard five days walking with lots of steps and climbing but I just the end a really good experience and really happy I completed it. Great for first time treckers”
