Destination

The top of Poon Hill is one of the best places to gaze at the Himalayas in Nepal. Trek to the summit and see how beautiful the big wall in the north looks from here. Enjoy our Annapurna Poonhill trek.

Poon Hill is a mountain of its own accord but is dwarfed in the presence of the Himalayan range. From the top of the hill, at an elevation of more than 10,000 feet, you can see the Annapurna massif together with adjacent peaks. So this trip combines both mountaineering and sightseeing. The beautiful villages and the pristine forests we walk through during the trip add to the experience.

  • Please make sure you take a travel insurance at home before arriving here. It is mandatory and you cannot take it in Nepal. Your insurance agent will know which insurance plan suits your travel.
  • It is advisable that you free up a few days before and after your trip schedule. For reasons beyond our control like flight delays, accidents and natural hazards, the itinerary may have to be altered.
  • Please inform us and our guides if you have any medical condition that might affect your trip. Please consult your doctor beforehand for any precautions you need to take and always carry medicines if you need them. However, our guides and local support staff have been trained in basic medical intervention and your travel insurance covers any emergency rescue or evacuation.
  • You may decide to alter your itinerary to some degree as long as there are no time constraints and everyone consents, if you are travelling in a group. Talk to us before embarking on the trip or you may also talk to our guides to see if we can arrange something. One thing we have learned from mountaineering all these years is however good you plan your journey, there are bound to be some improvisations to make our experience richer.
  • There are four days of intense trekking in this trip. You will have to walk for five to six hours each day so you need to be fit. Light endurance training or previous hiking experience is recommended before embarking on this trip.
