Poon Hill, Pokhara

4.7
#3 of 42 in Nature in Nepal
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. Plan a Pokhara trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

    While poon hill is definitely a good view point, if you are planning to go ABC, while going from ghorepani to tadapani, you may catch a exact mountain view. The only different is the sun rise. It’s de...  more »

    If you can physically get there (hard going), just go. The world is big, and we are very, very small.  more »

    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.

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
