Poon Hill, Pokhara

4.6
#3 of 41 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.

  • A great place to enjoy a wonderful view. Although ABC prefers more as a beautiful place. Take the time to watch and it was enough to want to come there.

  • A once in a lifetime experience. We climbed Poon Hill early in the morning and were fortunate enough to be able to get panoramic views of the Himalayas in the Annapurna region as it was a clear day. The climb from Ghorepani takes about an hour but it's worth it to catch the sunrise, bring a hat!
  • The heaven on earth. Lovely place to watch Annapurna range and Dhawlagiri range. Breathtaking views of mountains just before you.
  • Pretty nice view but not worth walking so much. Better skip this and go to ABC
  • Long hike to get up to the small town nearby, where you will stay the night. After a 45 min hike before sunset, you get to the top of the hill for an impressive view of the Annapurna mountains. This is one of the things that made our trip worth the hard work!
  • Views here are just unreal, well worth the 4am hike to the top. Watching the sunset hit the peaks was once in a lifetime stuff.

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.
