What a wonderful Trek to Poon Hill Reviewed Tour: Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek: Five Days
5 - Excellent
  • Lee
  • From Iceland
“We had first ever to Poon Hill. Which was fantastic. Alpine club of Himalaya wa s the best organiser. This trek offers spectacular mountain scenery along a route that takes us past charming villages inhabited particularly by the Gurungs and Magars. We also travel through dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys below the Annapurna range during this trip. But the most important highlight of this trip is Poon Hill, where a ribbon of glistening mountains surrounds you at sunrise. I highly recommend this trekking to everyone.”

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.

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.
