Description

Join us on yet another Poon Hill trek in Nepal. Walk through scenic mountain villages, explore the culture of native people and see one of the most spectacular sunrises from the top of Poon Hill on this 9-day trek.

The journey will take you to the north-western region of Pokhara. You’ll traverse scenic trails and see many beautiful temples and monasteries on the way.

The trail leads through lush valleys at the base of Annapurna and Machhapuchhre mountain ranges. It will take you on verdant hills through rhododendrons, pine, oak and birch trees.

Starting at Kathmandu, we’ll drive to Pokhara to begin our adventure. The initial route leads through terraced fields of rice and mustard. On the way,  you’ll see amazing views though many high peaks like Manaslu and Ganesh Himal. You’ll continue to walk through the lush forest until you reach Ghorepani.

Hiking further, you’ll get to the top of Poon Hill, which is definitely the highlight of the trip. The hill soars to the height of 3210m and rewards with an enchanting sunrise and stunning vistas of many imposing peaks like Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Nilgiri and many more.

Our last part of the trek will take us to the beautiful village of Ghandruk. Here, you’ll see the lifestyle of Gurung people closely and it will be really interesting to learn about their traditional practices and unique culture. You can also visit the Gurung Museum to see the artifacts, dresses and other items used by these people.

Again passing through Pokhara, you’ll finally return to Kathmandu by the eight-day to end this incredible trek.

This easy trek doesn’t require any special skills and it is preferred by both seasoned hikers and beginners alike.

So, send a message to join us on this amazing Poon Hill Trek in Nepal. You’ll have an unforgettable time, we assure you! Also, check out another wonderful Poon Hill sunrise trek in Nepal here.
