Poon Hill Treking

The Poon Hill Trek is one of best short trek in the Annapurna region of Nepal that provides a wonderful panorama of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Range. The view point of Poon Hill (3210 meters) is probably one of the most spectacular viewpoints in the country. I like the view of the first rays of sun in the morning, touching the snow-capped mountains from Poon Hill. This is the highlight of the trek. It is a beautyful landscapes of nature,the Poon Hill Trek also excels in displaying the diverse flora of the region as well. If you stay the month of March and April you will see the amazing blooming of rhododendrons flowers especially. Varying landscapes, vegetation and culture are also the highlights of the trip. The trek passes through the settlements of different indigenous groups of Nepal like the Brahmin, Magar and Gurung. The Gurung has a long history, they are famous for their exploits in warfare and renowned as Gurkhas and are one of the two ethnic groups from Nepal famous in the world. ‘The sherpas’ are the other famous ethnic group from the country. The Poon Hill Trek is a perfect trek for someone with a short vacation, wanting short and easy trek but not missing the panoramic views of the world’s highest mountains. Especially an easy walking of 4 to 6 hours a day, with comfortable lodges and guesthouses with mountains views, makes the Poon Hill Trek one of the perfect short trekking with family as well.
