Trip Overview

The Poon Hill Trek is a 6 day trek starting in Pokhara. The scenery on the trek is comprised of  rolling hills and amazing mountains, and beautiful forests. You can expect a range of whether conditions from semi-tropical to alpine conditions.

One amazing feature of the Poon Hill trek is it is part of an old trade route used to trade salt and other materials from southern Asia to central Asia. Like all major trade routes of its time villages grew around key points on the trail. Friendly communities of Gurung and Magar now provide visitors with supplies and places to sleep while on their journey.

At an elevation of just over 3,200 meters (10,500 feet), the trek reaches its high point at the top of Poon Hill. The view of the sunrise from the top of Poon Hill is exquisite. The sunrise reminds me of an orange grove just after a light rain or a book with a beautifully written mountain landscape that appears to invite the sun to rest on its pages.

After seeing the sun rise we begin our trek back to Pokhara. The trail on this leg of the journey takes us through a phenomenal old growth rhododendron forest and into Ghandruk Village. From here we travel a little ways further to Pokhara, which offers many services and amenities.

The Poon Hill trek is an excellent trek for all experience levels. It is primarily situated in the mid-mountain level at elevations not likely to cause elevation sickness. The trek is gradual with increases and decreases in elevation with plenty of resting opportunities on the trail. There are plenty of accommodating lodges that offer goods and services to keep trekkers happy.
