Poon Hill, Pokhara

4.7
#3 of 53 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.

  • Must visit place of Nepal for those who are seeking for trekking and naturally Nepal.
  • Great place, If you reach before 4 and the weather is in you favour. Annapurna Range was more mesmerizing than I could've imagined.
  • This place lies above 3500 meters . Very Cold place. Best place for hiking in Nepal.
  • Poonhill is one of the finest place for sunrise. It can be reached with a easy trekking of 2 days from pokhara. Situated on an altitude of 3200 meters, this place is the most popular view station. Peaks seen from here are, Dhaulagiri I, Dhaulagiri II, Nilgiri, Tukuche peak, Dhampus peak, Baraha sikhar, Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Hiuchuli and Machhapuchhre (Fishtail). The best time to visit this place is throughout the year bht less recommend on monsoon(june/july). There's a good facility of teahouses and some good hotels on the way. The route followed is, Pokhara-Nayapul-Tikhedhunga-Ulleri-Ghorepani-POONHILL- Tadapani. this trail can join the Annapurna bace camp trek in Chhomrong village.
  • Really stunning place I ever been. Before sunrise, all the stars shined in the dark!
