Poon hill alternative trekking route

Poon hill alternative trekking route is the best optional Trekking Route. It  is designed for those who have short holiday and have dream to be at Poon hill to see most magnificent Mountain View on the earth with stunning sun rise.  This route will take you reverse to Ghorepani via Beni and Hot spring avoiding steep climb of Ulleri. We organize this trip starting and ending at Pokhara to give you free time on your own in Pokhara and Kathmandu but we are always happy to customize on your request. We have planned this new alternative trekking route concept for short holiday. 

This trip is located in the Annapurna region of Western Nepal, known for some of the best trekking in Nepal. It is a short venture rich in nature’s diversity. This trek offers  amazing mountain scenery and charming villages inhabited particularly by the Indigenous people of Gurung and Magar.You will pass through dense rhododendron forests,  sub-tropical valleys, mossy forests and  icy water falls where you can stop to cool your face. Around every corner are exciting glimpses of  high mountains, whole horizons  revealed to you as you reach the high point of your trek- all around the Annapurnas with the pictorial peak of Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) dominating the skyline.

When sun rises at poon hill , it touches the snow-capped summits of the Himalayan giant, Dhaulagiri (8,167m./26951 ft.) and Annapurna (8,091m./26700ft.) along with a web of other peaks, that gradually appear like magic in front of your eyes—a sight hard to believe.

During the journey, you will see a wide variety of wildlife, natural beauty, local people's life style, typical homes, and breathtaking views with each & every footstep.

TREKKING GRADE

It's important to match your fitness level. Find what you think will suit you best in the tables below:

Easy

Easy trekking by Himalayan standards is generally up to 2800m. There are plenty of ups and downs on well-maintained trails. This type of trip is best suited for those who lead a reasonably active life. The trek takes about 3 to 7 days, walking about 4 to 5 hours a day.

Moderate

this involves longer treks (eight to fifteen days) on maintained trails. This type of trek includes day excursions to higher elevations, for which it's advisable to have some previous hill- walking experience. On these treks, we generally achieve an altitude between 1100 m to 3200 m.

Strenuous

these treks must be fully supported. We climb to altitudes between 3200 and 5000m. and there are overnight stays at altitudes above 4000m. For this trek, trekkers should be fit and enthusiastic hill walkers prepared to tackle difficult terrain in remote areas.

Very strenuous

this trek is best described as Alpine, and suitable is suitable for those in excellent health, capable of carrying a backpack, when required. The trek covers very remote areas, traveling over snow-covered passes at altitudes of up to 6500m. You will need to axes and crampons. No strenuous trek should be undertaken without medical clearance.
