Annapurna Panorama (Poon Hill) Trekking

Nepal is one of the few places in the world that can offer awe-inspiring mountain vistas and incredible trekking. This trek, at low altitude, has been arranged to allow you to enjoy some of the highest Himalayan peaks as you walk through the foothills of the Annapurna Range, as well as experiencing the world heritage sites of Kathmandu City.

From the terraced rice-fields above Pokhara, we walk along good trails through picturesque Gurung villages and one of Nepal’s biggest rhododendron forests which, in spring, bursts with many different hues, as we make our way to Poon Hill at 3,210m. The dawn view of Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Machhapuchhre (6,997m) and Annapurna South (7,219m), from the world famous Poon Hill, is the highlight of this trek. Short and fairly easy, this trek is a perfect introduction to Nepal’s mountain treasures. It is a good starter trek for those not sure of their walking ability, or simply for those who wish to make the most of only a few days. The trek finishes at the magnificent lake town of Pokhara, where you can relax and enjoy the tranquility of the lake and its backdrop of snow-capped mountains.
