Overview

The Poonhill trek is one of the short, light and comfortable treks in the Annapurna region. The trek offers us the chance to have up close views of mountainous and hilly vistas along the way. We will mostly be doing uphill climbing until reaching Poonhill. The trail takes us through hills, fields, valleys and Magar and Gurung villages. The beauty of streams, rivers and waterfalls along the way help to give cool and soothing sensation during the arduous walk. The colourful rhododendron forests and green fields add beauty to the trek. 
During the trek, we will stop by at restaurants along the way where they serve traditional Nepali food- Daal, Bhat, curry and Achar. You will have a chance to taste the traditional and authentic Nepali cuisine. The warm hospitality you receive at the hotels is really appreciative. We will be spending our nights in the hotels at our stopping places. 
The major highlight of the trek is morning sunrise view from the Poohill that gives a majestic view of a mountain range when the sun shines upon the peaks. The mountain peaks like Annapurna I( a tenth highest mountain in the world), Annapurna south, Himchuli, Mt Fishtail(Machhapuchre), Nilgiri south, Tukuche peak, Mt Dhaulagiri I ( a seventh highest mountain in the world)and others can be viewed close from there. We will also be stopping and taking rest at different places during the trek to enjoy and admire the natural beauty. Sometimes the trail can be slippery during the rainfall and snowfall and we have to be extra careful during that time. The trails are mostly stone stepped and some are also in the rocky areas. Throughout the trek, the breathtaking view of snowy peaks contrasted with the green landscapes will keep you rejuvenated and make you feel exhilarated.  Once you try out this trek we are sure you would want to tread this trail many times in the future as well.
