Create an itinerary including Poon Hill
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.

  • We walked up Poon Hill before dawn whilst staying at Hill Top Lodge en route for Annapurna Sanctuary. Lovely spot to watch the sun rise over the Annapurnas.

  • A must visit place while trekking in the region, located about 2 hours’ uphill walk from Ghorepani; sunrise view was wonderful. Entire Dhaulagiri range & Annapurna Massif including Machhapuchhre were on sight. It was really marvelous to watch the entire range from one place. One must wake up early in the morning not to miss the sun rise, sun rise time of particular day can be found in google, as the walk is uphill & many people need frequent rest hence give at least 2 hours for the walk, it is really going to be a life time memorable experience.
  • Amazing place .You get access to panoramic views of Nepal’s most famous peaks from here like Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Annapurna I and Annapurna South , Manchhapuchhre and others.Trek is short and moderate suitable for beginners . Can view great sunrise from here . This place is good for all four seasons ; December/February - snowfall , March/May - blossoming of rhododendron , June /August - moonsoon and clear weather , September/November - best time for Poohill trekking with festive vibes and great weather.
  • Love to see this sunrise and feel the cold weather
  • At this point you have a nice few to of Annapurna South and Machapuchare. There are more mountains to see but these two are the most beautiful. To get the best view you have to wake up early so you can see the sunrise at the top. It’s a bit of a hard walk because you wil increase about 300 meter of Dhawalagiri. The stairway is also very steep and it’s possible that it have snow.
  • Good view of mountains from Annapurna I and Annapurna South to Machapuchre. Best place for short hike. Trails are moderate and managed to reach there, so people of most age can go there and enjoy the scenic view
