Poon Hill Trek

This week-long Annapurna Villages trek to the view point on Poon Hill offers all the best of trekking in Nepal including accommodation in comfortable family run trekkers' lodges along the way. Enjoy trekking in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabitated by the Gurungs, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the picturesque fluted peak of Machapuchare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline. At the climax of this trek you will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountains caps on Earth. As the sun touches the snowcapped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,788ft.) and Annapurna (8,091m/26,538ft.) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. This trek can be enjoyed by lovers of nature and beautiful landscapes.
