“I just want to let you know that I had an amazing holiday at Nepal with the Poon Hill Trek. M and I are stunned by the views of the Himalayas and we are so touched and delighted with the quality ofservice of your staff in Nepal.Hats off to your staff - they are very accommodating and they always ensure that we are enjoying every second of our holiday. Roy is such a wonderful person and a very experienced trekker who looks after each and everyone of us trekkers and also his staff. He has lots of information to tell us about the trek, about Nepal and he is such a great leader and guide. Great service indeed.I would also like to mention Krishna - someone who always smile and makes everyone happy. Such a cheerful person who gives extra effort with the never ending service from dawn till night. Mingma is such a nice person and cares for everyone and has lots of information and stories to tell about the trek. Ram cooks very delicious, I am really amazed and full every meal. There are lots of surprises and I love the tea and the dessert.The kitchen staff and porters are amazing. I could not believe that you have picked the best stafffor that trek and I really do appreciate the fantastic service they gave us. More power to World Expeditions and I would definitely recommend this to my friends.”

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

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.
