A must visit place while you to trek in the Himalayas of Nepal, Poon Hill offers great panoramic views to watch the sunrise from Annapurna range to Manaslu Ranges.

Considered to be relatively easy trek compared to other routes in the area due to its lower altitudes and shorter amount of days, Ghorepani Poon Hill trek offers amazing mountain vistas and a peek into traditional Nepali lifestyle.

On the way to Ghorepani, we climb a staircase consisting of 3300 steps and there are many rocky, uphill tracks. All of this is worth the effort when you are able to feast your eyes on beautiful mountains; Annapurna South, Barasikha, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchhre (also know as Fishtail mountain), Dhaulagiri mountain range and Tukuche Peak are all there for you viewing pleasure.

There is completely no risk of altitude sickness. Ghorepani Poon Hill trek can be done all through the year. Everyone who enjoys the trekking adventure will love Poon Hill trek.
