Annapurna Base Camp Poon Hill Trekking

Annapurna Base Camp Trek

Annapurna Base Camp Poon Hill Trekking we at Skyline Treks and Expedition have packaged two exotic treks of the Annapurna region into one great package to ensure you have an experience of a lifetime in a relatively short span of time. The package consist Annapurna Base Camp and Poon Hill Trekking both of which are equally renowned for interesting scenic and cultural attributes. Starting out the trek from Pokhara through picturesque terraced villages, the trail passes through Landruk village until we finally climb to Annapurna Base Camp at (4130m).

We get plenty of opportunities to stare at the spectacular peaks of Machhapucchre (Fishtail), Himchuli which also guards the entrance to the sanctuary. This trek starts to get pretty interesting as it moves from Kande (1770m) to Annapurna base camp (4130m) and move downhill to Poon hill (3210m).

Since, Ghorepani Poon hill trekking lies on a major trail linking several other villages as well as the Annapurna Base Camp. It’s an interesting site to stop by while returning from this route of Annapurna base camp. Poon hill specially bestows you with the view of mesmerizing sunrise above the Annapurna peaks- as the sun rises above the Annapurna vistas; it changes its color to shiny golden like its blushing at a touch of rays of sun. We bid goodbye to this fun and exciting mix-bag trek at Nayapul and return to Pokhara with all the exciting memories to treasure a life-time.
