Panchase Peak boasts an altitude of 2,500 m (8,202 ft.) and is located in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It is a beautiful low altitude option in the region to discover rural villages and to enjoy awe-inspiring views of the Himalayas. Poon Hill is a hill station on the way to Annapurna Sanctuary at an altitude of 3,210 m (10,530 ft) and is another unique vantage point in Nepal.

Furthermore, it is a top trek for photography in Nepal.
