About this trip

14-24 October, 2024 


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.

A massive thank you to Andrew and Lewis for organising the Coast to Coast UK walk and safely guiding us throughout the amazing and memorable journey. We walked with a fantastic, fun and inspirational group of people. The route was spectacular with the scenery breathtaking and constantly changing. The whole Coast to Coast trek experience was brilliant. We highly recommend Trekking with Purpose.
