Poon Hill, Pokhara
(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • התחלנו לטפס בשעות הבוקר המוקדמות עוד כאשר היה חושך בחוץ , קור לא נורמלי , כל הדרך עליה ומדרגות ללא סוף , בפסגה היה קר ובקבוקי המים שלנו קפאו תוך דקות ספורות בתוך התיקים, הנוף הנשקף משם מהמם. 
  • It was an amazing trek to Poonhill. It was bit crowded when we went there but nevertheless we knew why it was crowded. The view was just heaven. 
  • Is the most popular trekking & view spot of the Annapurna range. We on the way to the A.B.C. I think it is usually going to be process of 2-3 nights. It is not always attracts a lot of tourists, so get lost along the way too. Lodges in gorepani, about 1 hour. In General see the climbing Sun dark dawn, it's surprisingly time is available. place over 3000 m, but exceeding 6000 to 8000 m in Nepal say the mountain is a hill deal. Have visited the 11-cold and had a stove is required down the lodge. By the time be enough cold.

  • Must go see the Himalaya ranges from here. An hour trek from Gorephani, there are stone stairs to get up and an easy walk.
  • It would have been nice if the weather was good and clear when you're up here. But if the weather is bad, foggy, cloudy, this place has nothing else to offer and nothing else to do. If the weather is bad, you won't see anything here that you couldn't see elsewhere along your trek. There's plenty of sitting area but it's in the open, no cover from rain or wind. The one tea / snacks shop that's up there is very expensive. It's one of those love it or hate it place (although it's really the weather's fault if you hate it.)
  • Great sunrise views of the Anapurna Mountain ranges
  • A short, fun and very popular trek route in Nepal, the Ghorepani-Poonhill-Trek takes you to this exquisite location from where you can have an uninterrupted view of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna (2 of the top 10 tallest mountains in the world), the iconic Fishtail Mountain (Machhapuchhre) and other peaks as well.
  • Ghorepani Poonhill Trek is very popular and short trek in Nepal. We will climb upto 3210m and will have beautiful sunrise and stunning views of Himalayas. Most loved trail in Nepal.
