Gorepani Poon hill trek

Overview

Poon Hill trek is arguably the most beautiful of the short treks in the Annapurna conservation area. It offers reasonably straight forward hiking, splendid scenery and unrivaled close up views of the Annapurna mountain range. The 6 day trek takes you through the varying ethnic communities of the Magar and Gurung people, giving the chance to experience their everyday life and adding a fascinating cultural element to the trek. Beginning with an hour’s drive from the lakeside city of Pokhara, the walking trail sets off from Naya Pool. The route gently climbs through lush countryside passing through a number of small Magar villages. As the trail continues further up, trekkers are welcomed with ever changing views of the snowy peaks of the Annapurna range. In Spring, there is the added bonus that much of the trail winds it’s way through magnificent rhododendron forest in bloom. At Poon Hill itself 3210m, we have the opportunity to observe sunset and sunrise over the breathtaking Annapurna mountains. This trek is ‘family friendly’! It is suitable for first time trekkers, and for those with lower levels of fitness. It is also ideal for a school trip looking for a cultural experience and some low altitude trekking. The nature of the topography in the region, however, mean that this trek can still offer some spectacular Himalayan views , despite its relatively low altitude.

As with all our treks, we can be flexible with the itinerary and can adjust many details according to your time, availability and special interests.
