Crystal clear Himalayan panoramic view, blooming rhododendron forest (during Spring), easy walking trails, unique culture of local people, the trek to Poon Hill might be your bucket-list trekking holiday. Actually, this is not trekking which makes an adventurous journey; it is normal walking holiday trip in the foothills of the Annapurnas with an alluring Himalayan views. The views you can see from Poon Hill is surely one of the best Himalayan views in the world that's why people called it Annapurna sunrise view hiking for 5 days – and remember, this trek can be done for whole year. This is a panoramic hiking holidays for beginner to experienced trekkers.

The trekking to Poon hill is a short trekking to the Annapurna which is popular for immense views for Mt. Dhaulagiri range. The trip starts from beautiful lake city Pokhara – Nayapul (Trek starting point) and in a couple of days you will be at the destination of the trip (Poon Hill).  Throughout the trail you will cross Thikhedhunga (1,540m), Ghorepani (2,870 m.) and beautiful Machhapuchhre and Annapurna Himalaya Range. After viewing the Annapurna panorama from Poon hill we will trek back to the Tadapani (2,600m) and Ghandruk (2,012m) villages. This hiking will finish at Birethanti. Beside the Annapurna Himalayas panorama, the trek offers to observe typical Gurung culture as we will cross few Gurung villages on the trail and beautiful rhododendron forests.  Normally the trip is organized for 10 days for your luxury trekking because it originally starts from Kathmandu. But if you want to finish it within 7 days, it is also possible.

After the trip some people want to enjoy their holiday in Chitwan National park which is famous for wildlife tour and tourism in Nepal.  It is about a 5 hour drive to get Chitwan from Pokhara. Couple of day’s trip to Chitwan will be appropriate for you.
