One of the important highlights of this Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is to make a climb to Poon Hill for watching the magical sunrise on the Annapurna Range. When the sunrises, it touches the snow-covered peaks, Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna (8,091m), Machhapuchhre(Fishtail) along with other peaks.

Poon Hill trekking is a fairly easy trek and a very famous trek in the Annapurna region. This trek is considered as easy and recommended for first-timers trekkers. It is sometimes referred to as the short mini Annapurna circuit trek. Even for experienced trekkers, this is a great introduction to the Himalayas, especially if time is short. Accommodation along this established route is very comfortable and the menus are not disappointing. And of course, the mountains never disappoint either in their fully photogenic beauty.
