Poon Hill, Pokhara

(4.6/5 based on 900+ 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.

  • 5am walk to catch the sunrise was cold but totally worth it. I also loved the night when the guests were circling around the heater and tell each other's life stories  more »

  • 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.
  • Amazing experience got to experience the sunrise and it was awesome would recommend any one who wishes to do a hiking holiday get yourself out to Nepal not to challenging a walk but worth all the energy you put in.
  • A very beautiful place in Nepal. The view of sunrise and himalayas surrounding the area is incredible. A must visit place in Nepal.
  • Amazing place to see nearby Himalayas. You can have experience to watch Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri Machhapuchhre, Annapurna West, Annapurna South Himalayas very closer look
  • Beautiful place. You must visit this area once. Will give you sense of adventure while you trek here
