Encounter the essence of Nepal's Himalayan mountain mystical peaks. A must for the bucket list and arguably the best trekking destination on the planet. Thousands of people flock to this small, landlocked Asian nation every year to head deep into the Himalayan region.
While famous hikes such as Everest Base Camp and the Annapurna Circuit bring in the majority of adventure seekers and mountaineers looking fo long challenging treks and elevations, many shorter hikes are just as breathtaking whilst not being so physically demanding Poon Hill trek is one of those hikes. Our tours take place in springtime when the days are longer and warmer. At this time the Annapurna Conservation Areas are fertile, lush, beautiful and boast abundant rhododendrons which are in full bloom. Waterfalls cascade and mountains glisten with snow and ice and you may see the occasional wild yak. This experience will be sure to take your breath away. The Poon Hill Trek is just stunning and you don't need to be a mountaineer to experience its beauty. Elevations of 3210m make the hike reasonably easy for anyone with a modest fitness level. The mystical Himalayan mountains provide nature's natural high and elevated state of being. Now add yoga and meditation and you will literally be feeling on top of the world.
