Description

Would you like to discover the amazing landscapes and mountain culture of the Himalayas? Then this 12-day Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill Trek in Nepal is just for you.

Located at an altitude of 3,210 m (10,530 ft), Poon Hill is a great viewpoint of the Himalaya mountains. It is also on the way to Annapurna Sanctuary, which is why we have combined it with the classic Annapurna Base Camp trek, ensuring you the best possible Nepal adventure.

This 12-day program is ideal for those who wish to discover the Himalayas but don’t have the time or the skill for a longer and more arduous trek to the top of some of the higher Himalayan peaks. You will have the chance to experience the amazing landscapes and culture of the local people, as well as admire the wildlife of Nepal. We will set off from Kathmandu, and from there we will begin an unforgettable adventure. A full itinerary is detailed below.

Keep in mind that this program is open to participants of many levels. However, you will need to be physically well prepared. We will, of course, be there to help you with the trekking and logistics.

So, are you ready for an unforgettable mountaineering adventure in Nepal? Then book your place now and join this amazing Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill Trek.

Or, if you prefer, you can join us for a shorter 8-day Annapurna Base Camp Trek!
