“The trek proper was fantastic - I was paired with a great female guide and porter who made me feel safe at every step. It was an incredible itinerary as well, being able to see Poon Hill, Ghandruk and the Jhinu Hot Springs. I highly recommend this company and won't be travelling with anyone else when I return.”

“I travelled alone in the 2nd week of October. Weather was pretty good (only showers in the evening) and sunrises in Poon Hill and Tadapani just amazing. It wasn't as cold as expected and could do without a sleeping bag.
The trek is great to get a taste of Nepal beyond the cities, offers lots of opportunities for protography, and can be done even by people with no head for heights (you don't have to be "schwindelfrei"). Deepak -my guide- was incredibly helpful, adjusting to my pace while keeping the tempo, helping all the time and even looking for "Shiva trees" to shoot. Thank you very much!

Ghorepani Poonhilll sunrise trek Reviewed Tour: Ghorepani Poon Hill Sunrise Trek
4 - Very Good
  • Ilango Gnanadhandapani
  • From Switzerland
  • At 21 Oct 2019
“A very popular trekking trail, with good facilities all through the route. Trek on the day of sunrise at Poonhilll is extra long and can be exhaustive because you have to start the trek early morning 4.30am and climb up to 3200m level, climb down to Ghorepani. Then again climb up few times high before rapid climb down.”

Poonhill Trek - Overview

If you want to experience trekking in Nepal, enjoy beautiful scenery, and visit traditional villages, but do not have time for a longer trek, then the Poonhill Trek is just what you might prefer. It is a relatively easy trek ideal for first-time trekkers.

Beautiful view of Annapurna South from Poon hill at 3210 m.

Poonhill lies at an altitude of 3,210 m and promises spectacular panoramic views of Dhaulagiri, the world’s 7th highest mountain at 8,167 m and Annapurna I the world’s 10th highest mountain at 8,091m, together with many other sky-reaching peaks. This relatively small hill in Himalayan terms provides awe-inspiring mountain views, making all the physical efforts worthwhile. The panoramic view of the Annapurna range from atop Poonhill is unmatched.

Enroute to the Poonhill trail you’ll be presented with sparkling streams, oak and rhododendron forests, traditional Nepalese villages, and many local teashops. Ghandruk, an antique and cultural village, is another point of interest where the culture and tradition of the Gurung ethnic group can be explored. You can see the beautiful Mount Machhapuchhre (meaning fishtail) really close from here. This mountain in the Annapurna range looks particularly striking because of its pointed profile that looks like a fish tail, despite only having an altitude of 6,903m.

Poonhill - Safety Considerations

Safety is a primary concern here at BookMundi and we put great emphasis on the following:

  • All trekking agencies available at Bookmundi.com are carefully chosen and are assessed on their safety standards after every trek, via trekkers’ feedback.
  • The trekking agencies will go through safety procedures with you during your pre-trek meeting about the Poonhill trek.
  • Please make sure you dress appropriately for the Poonhill trek based on the time of the year.
