“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.”

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.

Machapuchare mountain view from atop Poonhill
Trekkers having reached Poonhill
View of the Annapurna range from Ghandruk village
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.
