“Experience a laid-back trekking journey with our Poonhill Trekking on your visit to Nepal this year!”

Poonhill Trekking is an oddly comfortable and easygoing trek for travelers who want a short yet scenic trekking in Nepal. Travelers walk up through the foothills of Annapurna range while enjoying the scenic sunrise views over the Himalayan giants. This trek demands relatively less effort yet presents one of the most diverse short trekking routes to travel in. Furthermore, it is suitable for trekkers who wish to bring their friends and family with them during their holiday vacation.

Our journey begins with a sightseeing tour around the cultural sites of inside Kathmandu Valley. We visit the iconic Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath temple and Buddhist shrines of Swayambhunath stupa & Boudhanath stupa. Besides that, we also explore the ancient Nepalese architecture of Patan Durbar Square. We start our trek with a drive to Nayapool through the scenic lake city of Pokhara. Then, we head onward to our next destination which is charming village called Tikhedhunga. Travelers pass through the villages of Ulleri and Ghodepani while relishing the breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna and Mt. Dhaulagiri. We will witness beautiful valleys with layered crop fields, blooming rhododendron forests and dispersed village settlements along this trail.

The highlight of the trip is the sunrise view from Poonhill (3,210m). Therefore, we hike up to the top of Poonhill early in the morning from Ghorepani. Upon reaching there, we can observe the illumination of majestic Himalayas by the rising sun. You can see Mt. Annapurna South, Mt. Annapurna I, II, III and IV along with Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt. Lamjung Himal, Mt. Manaslu and Mt. Machapuchare. Moreover, this is even thought to be one of the best sunrise view in the whole world. And as we move past the waterfalls and cultural villages, our short trek gets more enriched and memorable. Now, we descend back down to Nayapool and then a drive to Pokhara will mark the end of our trek.

In addition to that, we recommend Spring and Autumn seasons as the best time to go for this trek! Also, you don’t need to worry about acclimatization issues during your trek. Because the trek doesn’t go much higher than 3,210m.

Poon Hill trekking

Me and a mate of mine were doing the trek to Poon Hill when we met Keshab. What an amazing guy!! He was being a tour guide and he was friendly enough to invited us to join him. He was an excellent guide and he has become a friend, I definitely encourage people to get in contact with him if they want to do some sort of trek in Nepal. Thanks again Keshab!

Excellent Guides 'We were very well looked after''

I heard about Keshab through my uncle who had gone trekking with him before. Myself and friend (both Irish) had 10 days to travel around Nepal. Keshab helped us write up a detailed travel plan for those 10 days, and booked everything for us.We went to Pokhara, then trekked for four days, and then stayed briefly in Lumbini. Keshab organised all the transport, and all the accommodation quickly and simply, and all for an extremely reasonable price.While trekking our guide was Keshab's brother Rajendra, who was extremely helpful. He took care of all the necessary documentation we needed to trek in the Annapurna conservation area and he knew the trails very well. We had a really great time.If you are trekking or travelling with this company, you honestly will not need to worry about a thing when you are on your trip. I constantly felt that if I had any questions at all, I could call Keshab and this feeling of security is invaluable when you don't speak the native language, and aren't sure of how to get from one region to another.For example, due to unforeseen circumstances we had to leave Lumbini a day earlier than expected and return to central Kathmandu. We notified Keshab of this and he was instantly able to give practical advice as to the best way to go about getting back, as well as cancelling our final night in the guesthouse in which we were staying.I highly recommend travelling with this company.

Great few days

We did Poon Hill trekking for three days with this company which was awesome. Keshab has a lot of information about Nepal and ranges around you. He is very friendly, helpful guide. After this we had unforgotable experince. His friend took us to his friend's family and also to Keshab parents. That was another five days. I have nothing to say. Just THANK YOU very much Keshab. And hope to see you again.
