TRIP INTRODUCTION

Poon Hill Trek is ideal for individuals with limited time. It provides an opportunity to view most mountain peaks in Western Nepal from close proximity. This trek is shorter than the Ghorepani-Poon Hill Trek but you will not have to compromise on the experience.

The trek starts from Nayapul and ends in Nayapul. We will first climb to Ghorepani from Nayapul. Poon Hill lies within a small hike from GhorepaniPoon Hill is a mountain watcher's paradise. It provides an end to end view of some of the tallest mountain peaks in the world. We will return to Nayapul via Tadapani, a typical Gurung village.

The accommodation on the route are either small tea house or homestays. Climbing to Ulleri village via 3,200 stone steps is another high point of the tour. The climb is grueling but this section provides stunning view of Annapurna, Himchuli and Machhapuchhre (fish tail) mountains. The landscape is mostly subtropical and is characterized by deep forests of rhododendron, pine and oak.
