HIGHLIGHTS
  • Enjoy views of alpine lakes, fields, and mountains including Annapurna South
  • One of Nepal's most famous short treks—and for good reason
  • Hike 3,210m to be rewarded by panoramic views of Dhaulagiri
  • Trek to the sunrise viewpoint, Poon Hill
Here is a trek that will leave you breathless – and not due to physical exertion either! The jaw-dropping views from Poon Hill (3210m) will take your breath away. This trek is famous for its spectacular panoramic views of many soaring snow-capped peaks, such as Annapurna South (7219m), Machapuchare (6993m), Hiunchuli, Annapurna III, Dhampus peak, and many others.

The second feature of this trek is a firsthand experience of Gurung and Magar village life and their adherence to Tibetan Buddhism that influences their architecture and everyday activities. Feel the genuine warmth while passing through the villages of Ulleri, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk.

Follow a trail through lush rhododendron forests that will make you reach for your camera. The trail takes you through the Modi Khola Valley and then on to Tikhedhunga. Shortly after crossing the suspension bridge over the Modi Khola (river) we begin the climb of 3300 steps up Ulleri hill and then through a rhododendron forest before reaching the Magar Village of Ghorepani (2855m). The best views from Poon Hill are at sunrise or sunset, so an early rise is essential on the day we head to Poon Hill. The sun rising over the Annapurna Ranges is stunning as the light reflects off the white peaks. This is a magic moment as you hastily snap photos through the phases of changing light. On the way back to Pokhara we come to the Gurung village of Ghandruk with its traditional style of houses and their stone roofs with a magical mountain backdrop.

This all-season trek is considered by many as the best trek in the Annapurna region. This trek is ideal for families with children and will allow you to experience the Annapurna region in a short space of time. All meals and accommodation are included.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • Is a visa on arrival available?

    Typically, yes. However, in response to the current Covid situation, rules for arriving visitors may change frequently and sometimes without notice. It may be necessary to obtain a tourist visa in your own country before travel. For updated information on visas, please check the Nepal Tourism Board and the Government of Nepal Immigration websites.

     

  • How much will a trip to Nepal cost?

    How much you spend in Nepal is largely decided by things you want to do in the country. A 5-day trekking trip in Nepal can start from as little at USD 400 per person. A weekend-long safari in Chitwan National Park is available at less than USD 200.

    On average, seven days in Nepal with accommodation and some or all meals included costs anywhere between USD 700 to USD 1500 per person. Good rooms at hotels in Nepal range from USD 25 to over USD 150 per person, per night, while around USD 1.5 a day can buy you three meals in decent restaurants. 

  • How does it work with a porter?

    Generally, the porter will pick up the baggage in the morning and drop it at the hotel in the evening. You will not always be walking with your porter or have access to your bag during the day, while trekking. 

  • How much money do I need to bring with me?

    Your personal budget obviously depends on your spending habits and what is included in your trip cost. If accommodation is included, but meals are not, we would suggest that you bring around 30 USD per day per person for meals. Having a hot shower or charging your device sometimes costs extra. There are also sometimes small crafts/souvenirs to buy along the trekking route which you may want to bring extra money for. Also, consider whether you would be staying in Kathmandu or Pokhara before or after your trek.

  • Is Asia open for tourists?

    Despite the initial fears of the Covid-19 pandemic, most Asian countries have managed to mitigate its effects. As such, many popular destinations throughout the continent are currently open for travelers with precautionary measures like mandatory vaccinations. A few countries, however, require newly arrived travelers to spend a couple of days in quarantine.

    As of February 2022, countries like Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia are officially open for vaccinated tourists without the need for quarantine. Meanwhile, India and Indonesia are two of the countries that may require you to quarantine for up to a week on arrival. However, Japan, Vietnam, and Myanmar are yet to open their doors to visitors.
