The Poonhill Trek 5N 6D is one the most preferred and the talk-of-the-town trips in the whole wide world. Poon Hill is a plateau at an altitude of 3210m towards the northwest of Pokhara in the Annapurna Conservation Area. The hill can be reached with a couple of night halts and comfort 5-6 hours walk a day with layovers. The reason that Poon Hill Trip is so much in one’s favorite list is due to what this place has to offer to the travelers. The 360 views atop the hill, stunning sunrise and even sunset views, a breathtaking vista of over 30 mountains pinnacles, the weather and the place itself which has been courteously welcoming the travelers perpetually.

This Poon Hill trip starts from Kathmandu, Nepal with a drive to Pokhara on the first day. The actual trek begins from Nayapul where we reach on the second day in our vehicle. The trek trail passes through the beautiful jungles, villages, tiny settlements, etc. where one can hardly escape from the view of mountains through the trail. Our first reach for a night halt is Ulleri, after climbing the stone paved steps uphill from Tikhedhunga. On the third day, we continue our steps towards Ghorepani, the gateway to Poonhill. We settle for the night here. Our 1-hour walk in the early morning on the fourth day towards northwest will take us to the ultimate vantage point- The Poon Hill, at 3210m. Enjoy the 360 views from atop and the sunrise view from the east gushing the vibrant rays over the awaited icy mountains changing to the gold. From Poonhill, we retrace our trail back to Ghorepani and continue towards Tadapani, a village below the Mt. Fishtail. On the fifth day, we will trek to Ghandruk, the large settlements of Gurung. We will explore this village for a while. After half an hour more walk downhill from Ghandruk-we will reach Kimchi, where we get ourselves boarded onto our anticipated vehicle and hit the bumpy road back to Pokhara for night stay. Our journey to Poonhill concludes on the sixth day after a return drive from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

Note: Flying from Kathmandu to Pokhara and back can be an option over traveling overland to expedite and shorten the trip duration. You can always ask us to customize the trip and choose the mode of transport for this trip. However, the trek is mandatory from Nayapul to reach Poonhill, Ghorepani, Tadapani and Ghandruk.
