Annapurna panorama view trekking is one of the most popular and comfortable treks in Nepal which is famous for its stunning views from Poon Hill. Annapurna panorama view trekking is also known as the Annapurna panorama, a pleasant and serene trek in the foothills of the Annapurna region. With so much to offer such as the magical blend of diverse culture, nature and ancient villages with breathtaking views of Annapurna ranges and sunrise at Poon Hill, Annapurna panorama view trekking is a perfect pick. Since the trek is an altitude free, short and relatively easy trek at a warm and pleasant trail which can be the perfect choice for those seeking a trek that isn’t hard on the knees. Particularly designed for those adventure and nature lovers who have a bucket list to explore the views of the spectacular snow-covered Himalayan peaks with a touch of unique culture and traditions.

As per your wish, we undertake the Annapurna panorama view trekking with a scenic drive or mountain flight from Kathmandu to the ever vivacious city of Pokhara. If you prefer a tourist bus drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, it takes about 6 hours attended by terrific and scenic views. Whereas, if you happen to opt for a mountain flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, it takes about 35 minutes which flies you through the captivating northern Himalayas. Pokhara, a major tourist hub is the perfect definition of a beautiful city with crystal clear lakes and magic caves. Annapurna panorama view trekking starts from here, Pokhara city is a popular commencing point for treks in the Annapurna region. With a scenic and tranquil two hours drive to a new bridge (Nayapul), our trek really begins from this point on.

Getting to Poon Hill viewpoint from where the views are marvelous is not an easy task but it sure is worth it. It requires hiking for a couple of days on a pleasant and tranquil trail where we make the decent mountain lodges home for a day or two. As we get ahead with our trek, we get to Tadapani, which is another great viewpoint for beautiful mountain peaks including Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Fishtail. As we move to Pothana, Dhampus, we make a pit stop at the Gurung settlement of Ghandruk, which is one of the most beautiful villages and which is perfect to get to know the unique Nepalese culture, religions, people and their lifestyle.
