Nepal Poon Hill Trek

October 13 - October 26

This trek encompasses all the highlights you would expect from a trek in the Annapurna range. Beginning in the foothills we trek through delightful villages and rural landscapes where we take in the local way of life.

Making our way to Poon Hill we are rewarded with the stunning panorama of the Annapurnas at sunrise. From here we depart the main trail to complete a more remote traverse above the Annapurna Circuit, all the while accompanied by stunning mountain views as we make our way to Nayapul and the end of a very memorable trek in the Himalaya.
