4 Days Poon Hill Trekking

Duration: 4 Days   |   Based on 1 Review

4 days Poon Hill trekking, with one of the best viewpoints in the world, is truly a trekker’s paradise. One cannot rave enough about the views from Poon hill. 4 days Poon Hill trek is marvelous for the amateur trekkers and for those trekkers who would not want to go to a high altitude and learn the unique culture and lifestyle of Himalayan people.

During the comfortable and 4 days Poon Hill trek, the guest houses that you will be staying at will be relatively decent but with homely owners. As we walk through the trails, light winds blow across our faces through the terrace farming villages, walking through thick mossy forests and cooling off yourselves at beautiful icy waterfalls are only a few of the things that you can enjoy during the Poon Hill trek.

The 4 days Poon Hill trek surely will not disappoint you as it is filled with amazing views of the high mountains and dramatic landscapes along with the magical green hills. Talking about the main highlight of the trip, it is the sunrise from the Poonhill. All that we can say is, that it is incredible.
