This lodge-based trek in the Annapurna Foothills to the view point on Poon Hill offers some of the best scenery in Nepal with accommodation in comfortable family run trekkers' lodges along the way. Enjoy trekking amongst the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurung people of Nepal, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurna range with the picturesque fluted peak of Machapuchare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline. The highlight of this trek is the climb up Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain scapes on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits of the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m/26,788ft) and Annapurna (8,091m/26,538ft) a maze of other peaks slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. This is a scenic trek that will be enjoyed by lovers of nature and beautiful landscapes. We have planned this trek to allow you to enjoy the beauty of this area at lower altitudes and warmer weather. The trek starts in Pokhara and includes all meals, road transport and English speaking guide with porters to carry your luggage. You are only required to carry a day-pack. It is an easy to moderate trek graduating from 900m (3,000ft) to 2,075m (9,760ft). We walk each day at an easy pace. Duration 9 nights/10 days. Maximum altitude reached is 3,150m (10,500ft) at Poon Hill.

We would be pleased to have you on the journey and to introduce you to our country and way of life while your travel as part of our extended family.
