This trek from the Annapurna foothills to the view point on Poon Hill offers some of the best views in the region. The trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests and past ice-cold waterfalls where you can stop to cool your face. Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which will be revealed to you as you reach the high points of your trek. This is a comparatively easy trek 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 Peak of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline.
At the climax of this trek you will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain escapes on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits of the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m) along with a maze of other peaks, which slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. This a rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature and beautiful landscapes.
If you want to get the most mountain views in the least amount of time, this trek up from Naya Pul to Ghorapani and then over to Ghandruk should satiate your desire for Himalayan vistas. From the sunrise above Ghorepani to the in-your-face view of Machhapuchhare and Annapurna South from Chomrong, this trek does not disappoint.
Please note that this trek is not recommended in the summer because of monsoon rains.
