highlights
  • Best Sunrise and Mountain View Point of Nepal.
  • Natural Hot Water Bath.
  • Beautiful villages inhabited by Gurung and Magar Indigenous groups.
  • Gateway to the classic Annapurna Base Camp Trek.
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!

Please see the Itinerary for a detailed day-by-day itinerary.

“this is the best word use to describe the ABC experience i gain thue this expedition, before the trip i was hesitate not done any multiple days trekking before, after couple connect with the Unique Adventure director Khum Subedi with the supportive assurance, than i was confident to take this challenge myself. I m glad i sign up the Annapurna Base Camp instead of the Poon Hill.”

“Myself and a friend arrange a bespoke Poon Hill 5 day trek and a Chitwan 3 day safari with transportation arranged between the two and also from and back to Kathmandu. We arranged everything by email and received responses to everyone and we did seriously pester this company.

On arrival in Kathmandu we were collected from the airport by a driver who had waited 2 hours while we cleared immigration, we then travelled to our hotel before being collected and taken to their offices. There we were given detailed information about our trip and asked if we had any questions about the itinerary.

From the following morning where we were taken to the bus station to the moment we arrived back in Kathmandu everything went totally as planned, even back at Kathmandu where we were again very later the driver had waited for us.

Our Poon Hill guide was Raju and our porter was Ram and they were superb, Raju even stayed on the following day and escorted us around Pokhara sorting out travel for us and didn't want anything from us although we bought him lunch. Raju was also responsible for choosing our restaurants and tea houses on route and again he picked some really good places for us. He had good knowledge of the mountains, wildlife, village life, the politics of Nepal and many other things.

All in all then totally impressed with this company and I have very high standards, really would recommend anyone travelling through Nepal to consider this company.”
