The Poon Hill Trek is a beautiful adventure for the beginners in the marvelous Annapurna region of Nepal. As the trip is filled with finest teahouses and easy trails, it is doable by all age groups. Additionally, the trails on the trek are one of the most-frequented ones in the entire country. The Annapurna region itself is home to the majestic Annapurna Himalayan Range, as well as the Annapurna Conservation Area- a Himalayan oasis of immensely unique and beautiful biodiversity and wildlife. It is a trekking journey that the travelers can enjoy the trip and it presents the best Himalayan, cultural and natural features of the Annapurna.   

For the trek that offers cultural exchange, beautiful scenery, and a front row seat to some of the largest mountains on earth, Poon Hill Trek is a perfect choice for short holiday in Nepal. It is short, less challenging and organized effortlessly for all trekkers. The Poon Hill Trek is famous for the sunrise view of the rugged Annapurna range. Other mighty peaks seen on this trek are Dhaulagiri (8167m,) Manaslu (8163m,) Annapurna I (8091m), Gangapurna (7455m), Lamjung Himal (6931m), Baraha Shikhar (7847m), Nilgiri (7061m), Tukuche Peak (6920m), and Hiunchuli (6441m). Poon Hill Trekking is also one of the most famous and classical treks in the Annapurna. The Gurung and Magar are two of the ethnic groups that inhabit this area. The warm hospitality is easily experienced by the local villager who only adds to this incredible trail. One can get the chance to visit some of the major Gurung and Magar villages like Ghandruk, Ulleri, Birethanti, Hile, Tikhedhunga, Ghorepani, and Tadapani on the way. This trek is also partly in the Annapurna Conservation Area, which is abundant with a wide variety of flora and fauna. Our trek starts by taking a scenic flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, a place famous as the gateway to the Annapurna region. Pokhara is a small town also known as the City of Lakes.
