About this trip

 

Poon Hill Trek is a short and relatively easy trek into the Annapurna region. Also known as Ghorepani, this trek is suitable for those who do not have much time  but would like to experience all that Nepal offers. This classic trek packs everything in, with paths through rhododendron forests and rice paddies, finishing with spectacular views of beautiful snow-capped Himalayan mountains. 

The sunrise from Poon Hill on the 3rd day of trekking is considered one of the best views in the Himalayas.
