Poon Hill, Pokhara

(1,000 reviews on the web)
Mountain
Poon Hill offers panoramic vistas of the Annapurna Massif, blooming rhododendron forests, and picturesque Gurung villages. The trail that begins and ends in Pokhara--Nepal's second-largest city--is short but steep and features numerous stone steps. Family-run teahouses along the way provide overnight stays and meals. Dress appropriately, as it can get quite cold at the top--especially if you visit before sunrise. To visit Poon Hill on your holiday in Pokhara, and find out what else Pokhara has to offer, use our Pokhara vacation planner.

  • I got up at 4am to trek up to Poon Hill and catch the magnificent sunrise over the mountains. One of the greatest experiences of my life. If you go to Ghodepani, you must go the extra distance and go to o Poon Hill.
  • I could not make it to the peak. I could reach only the half way through. But the little that I have experienced from that part during sunrise was amazing. The long walk on the slippery and steeping stairs was quite challenging.
  • How can you not love this place. This is great place for the people who want to get away from there busy life.
  • Awesome place to trek and result is stunning view. Easy trekking root
  • Easy & relaxing trekking trail. Beautiful mountain view
