Poon Hill Trekking
5Days into the Essence of the Annapurna Mountains
Is your time short for your Nepal holiday? You want to see the snowcapped peaks of the Himalayas but don’t have a lot of time? Then the Poon Hill Trek is the perfect one for you. It features just five days of trekking into some of the most spectacular scenery in the Himalayas.
The Poon Hill Trek is a very popular excursion because of its awesome beauty. The highlight for everyone is standing atop of Poon Hill and watching the most spectacular sunrise on the planet! Each morning, the sun makes its awesome appearance over the world as it majestically rises above the mountains, turning the snowcapped peaks from grey to pink and finally a brilliant white as the sun rises higher and higher in the dark blue Himalayan skies.
The Poon Hill Trek is only five days of actual trekking, but what an incredible five days it is! All along the way, you see some of the most incredible peaks in the world, including Mt. Dhaulagiri (elev. 8,167 m) and Annapurna I (8,091 m), which are the 7th and 10th highest mountains in the world, respectively. There are also views of other snowcapped peaks, which includes Mt. Nilgiri (elev. 7040 m); Mt. Annapurna II (elev. 7,937 m), Mt. Annapurna III (elev. 7,555 m), Dhampus Peak (elev. 6,012 m), Machhapuchhre (a/k/a Fishtail Mountain, elev. 6,998 m) and Mt. Lamjung Himal (elev. 6,986 m) plus many more. There is probably no greater collection of snowcapped peaks anywhere in the world as there is in the Annapurna Region.
The Poon Hill Trek takes you through impressive villages that belong to the Gurung people who have farmed this difficult land for centuries. There are many other ethnic groups that you will encounter, each with their own culture, language and traditions. But what they all have in common is their friendly hospitality and the way they will make you feel welcomed as you enter their traditional homes and villages.
The Pooh Hill Trek is a moderately easy trek with a maximum elevation of 3.220 meters at Pooh Hill for your outstanding sunrise experience. It will give you a true taste of the mountains of Nepal.
