This trek in the Annapurna foothills to the view point on Poon Hill offers all the best of trekking in Nepal. Enjoy trekking in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs, Magars, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurnas with the picturesque peaks of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline.
You will climb Poon Hill (vantage point) at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular views of the Himalayan Peaks. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8167 m.) and Annapurna (8091 m.) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before your eyes. This is a rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature and beautiful landscape.Views of the ‘fishtail’ peak Machhapuchhare and Annapurna South dominate the skyline as we trek via Shyauli Bazaar to Ghandruk, before we return to Pokhara to relax by beautiful Phewa Lake.
