Poon Hill Trek is renowned as the best trekking destination in the Himalayan range, which offers panoramic views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. The highest point of the Poon Hill Trek is the viewpoint of Poon Hill, which stands at an altitude of 3,210 meters (10,532 feet). It’s an ideal starting point for those seeking to gradually acclimate to the high altitudes and challenges of longer and more adventurous treks like the Annapurna Base Camp trek and Annapurna Circuit Trek. This moderate-level trek is well-suited for trekkers of all ages, with only a few challenging uphill sections along the way. The well-marked trails and comfortable lodges make this journey an accessible and enjoyable experience.

This trek takes you through a diverse tapestry of landscapes, from enchanting rhododendron forests to terraced slopes and lush paddy fields. As you traverse this scenic wonderland, the warm hospitality of local Gurung and Magar villages will leave an indelible mark on your heart. Ghorepani, a picturesque village at an elevation of approximately 2874 meters, lies within the Annapurna Conservation Area, enriching your trek with its cultural heritage and natural splendor.
