3 Days Poon Hill Trek

Duration: 3 Days   |   Based on 15 Reviews

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 (3,250 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.

Note: Please bring a Torch Light for Poon Hill hike. On the second day we will hike early in morning around 4:30 AM from Ghorepani village to Poon Hill view point to see the grand sunrise and breathtaking Himalayas.
