Overview

The Poon Hill ABC Trekking is one of the most favored treks across the Annapurna region. The trail of the trek goes through the redoubtable bamboo forests and local settlements.  Poon Hill Annapurna Base Camp Trekking is said to be more distinct than other treks due to the routes through ethnic villages that are rich in their culture, beautiful landscape, and natural scenery. You can observe different beautiful overviews of the Himalayan Ranges of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna Range with Machhapuchhre and eastwards to Manaslu in the way towards Poon Hill. There are two different peaks situated that are above the height of 8,000 m.

Our journey towards Poon Hill ABC Trekking starts from Kathmandu. We drive towards Pokhara which is known as the city of adventurous tourism. The Poon Hill Annapurna Base Camp Trekking route goes through Ulleri and then towards Ghorepani and then to Poon Hill. The trail goes through a much steeper and flat landscape. The higher you climb, you’ll notice different flora in the dense forests with beautiful flowers everywhere.

We trek to Chhomrong via Tadapani and reach Himalaya Hotel which is the best place to observe the Annapurna Mountain Ranges and its neighboring mountains. After reaching Annapurna Base Camp, we capture each and every moment with our loved ones in an enjoyable environment. After that, we trek back to Pokhara via Sinuwa and Shewmi and walk through the entire city for refreshment. Our Poon Hill ABC Trekking ends back in Kathmandu.
