Poon Hill Trek is a short and exciting trek route in the Annapurna region in Nepal. The trek is easy and not so lengthy thus, it is suitable for those who don’t have enough time. The trek fulfills the burning desire to observe and explore the beauty of snow-capped peaks like Mt. Everest (8,848 m), Langtang, Ganesh, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and Annapurna (8,091 m). You can see the stunning view of sunrise and glorious Himalayas ’ views which will be never forgotten moments of your life. You will cross some beautiful mountain rivers on your way to Poon Hill.

Our adventurous route passes some beautiful villages of Ulleri, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk. We will pass dense Rhododendron forests full of beautiful birds and valleys on the way. You will be warmly welcomed by locals with their smiley face and great hospitality. The trek will be a great choice for them who love to vanish for a while within the depth of nature.

 

What are the trek difficulties during Poon Hill Trek?

 

The Poon Hill trek takes you to the maximum altitude of 3,210 meters at Poon Hill. Thus, first of all, you must prepare yourself to be protected from altitude sickness. The trek is considered moderate in difficulty level. Although, you have to climb up and down through rocky steps and pass through some risky and narrow sloppy way. The trekker needs to hike four to five hours per day. But do not worry if you are inexperienced.  Without any prior experience to mountain climbing or hill trekking, you are capable and strong enough to accept challenges.  We have an experienced team to lead you and help whenever you need it.

When is the best season for Poon Hill Trek?

The best season for Poon Hill Trek is spring and autumn. During these seasons temperature remains moderate both in days and nights. Although, the Poon Hill Trekking route remains busy in every season. We suggest you pack very lightly as you will be carrying your own baggage all day.

Well Organized

5.0 rating
February 24, 2020

The trek was perfectly organized and together with our guide (Lakpa) we had an amazing experience. Even after coming back Blue Lake Travels arranged our car transport back to Kathmandu for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to do the Poon Hill trek, very friendly staff, and a very well organized trek!
