The 3 days Poon hill trek is the shortest trek in the Annapurna region. This trek is relatively easy and yet, filled with the adventurous thrill and its suitable for those who are reasonably fit. We begin the 3 days Poon hill trek after a two-hour drive through knobby roads to Nayapul from Pokhara. We begin walking to Ulleri via Tikhedhunga village. The very next day from Ulleri, we continue trekking through the rhododendron forests to Ghorepani village, which is the highlight of our trip as we get there after walking through pretty tough uphill and downhill trails, via streams, jungles, and farming lands. Ghorepani is a beautiful and a prepossessing village with nice and homely lodges, friendly people and the view of the great range of Annapurna looming about throughout the year.

The 3 days poon hill trek provides a beautiful and a spectacular sunrise view from Poon Hill (3210 m) as well as the superb Himalayan views including Annapurna range, Mount Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Mount Fishtail and many more white snowcapped mountains. Discover amazing views with every hike and an early morning hike to Poon Hill to see the grand views of the spectacular Himalayan range with the sunrise view which will surely be the highlight of the trip. Poon Hill is truly one of the best view points in the Annapurna region and also one of the best viewpoints in the world.

Travel Insurances

Travelling is an investment and we believe that an insurance makes your investment secure.  It is a condition of joining any of our adventure trips that be protected against comprehensive expenses potential to incur due to medial issues or accidents (to include helicopter rescue, air ambulance, and treatment costs). Please be noted that we do not arrange or sell insurance.

A relaxed trip is not possible without good travel insurance. In the event of any sickness or injury, the cost of emergency treatment and evacuation is shocking. Therefore, travel insurance is strongly recommended for everyone who signs up with us. We strongly recommend that you be careful while choosing a policy as some makes special exceptions for adventure travel. Before buying your insurance make sure your insurer is aware of our adventure itinerary that you are going to undertake and is agreeable to cover all activities being undertaken in the trip. Such as if you are planning trekking or climbing/expedition in Himalayas your insurance must cover emergency air ambulance/helicopter rescue including medical expenses. For a group tours in urban areas, your insurance coverage of ambulance or helicopter rescue is not mandatory, however better to have with them too. Again, in Tibet trips there is no possibility of helicopter rescue, so no need to buy the air ambulance coverage in Tibet trips. Also, check your insurance policy firmly to even include trip cancellation, as all deposits paid are non-refundable.

Please kindly provide us your copy of insurance policy (e.g. your insurance certificate) or carry it with you while you come on the trip.


Acclimatization

Alpine Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms
