(Category - Moderate)

This week-long trek in the Annapurna foothills to the top of Poon Hill is one of the most pleasant trekking areas. Easy to Moderate trekking from an altitude of 900m to a maximum 3,000m, this trek offers spectacular mountain scenery, charming settlements of Gurungs and their slate-roofed houses, incredible rhododendron forests ablaze with ivory, rose, apricot and crimson bouquets and deep sub-tropical valleys all set below the Annapurna and Dhualagiri range. The sunrise over Machhapuchhre or Fishtail (6,993m) from Poonhill is simply breath taking as the sun changes its color from pink to gold to silver – a rewarding experience.
