Classic Poon Hill Trekking

The Poon Hill trek, or Ghorepani Poon hill trekking, is a classic short trek for those who would like to have a real taste of trekking but do not have too much time to spare. The trek passes via typical mountain terrain and Sherpa villages, allowing you to see, and perhaps even experience, a bit of village life. In the five days on trail, you will get a good feel of what trekking in the Himalayas is like, enjoy typical Nepali hospitality, and glorious mountain views at Poon Hill.

Classic Trek

I wanted to have the real taste of trekking but was a bit constrained by time. My friend, Richard, came up with an ideal suggestion of the classic Poon hill trek. Passing by the lush valleys, misty rhododendron forests and colorful villages, was an experience of a lifetime. We reached to Poon hill, from where I had an eyeful view of the entire vistas of the soaring Himalayan peaks. I would have stayed longer if I had time.

Adventure Travel at its Best

Walking in one of the most beautiful region of Nepal with towering Annapurna in the backdrop was an overwhelming experience. Even as an amateur trekker, I easily made it up to mountains because of cordial behavior of Sherpa guide and porters. Stay at Ghorepani gave me a brilliant chance to watch the magnificent dawn break on the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu range. It was a fantastic trip.
