Poon Hill Trek

Sunrise on Poon Hill Trek

Poon Hill Trek is perfect for anyone who has got limited time or for people who want a short trek in Nepal but don’t want to miss out on the views. The Himalayan vistas on Poon Hill Trek certainly pack a punch, especially when you climb Poon Hill as the sun rises over these beautiful mountains. The route starts and finishes in Nayapul, looping around Ghorepani and Ghandruk trek offering the crisp serenity of this high alpine area and a peek into traditional Nepali lifestyle.

We stay in friendly teahouses, tackle a challenging climb of 3300 steps up to Ulleri and follow the River Bhurungdi east past low land rice fields and thick jungles where you will see monkeys playing and many species of birds resting in the trees.

Annapurna South, Barasikha, Nilgiri, Hiunchuli, Machhapuchru (also know as Fishtail mountain), the Dhaulagiri mountain range and Tukuche Peak are all on show on this short trek to Poon Hill into this beautiful region, along with the chance to get to know the Nepali people and taste the local delicacies.

The experiences on this route will provide you with happy memories and stories to tell for years to come, a truly unforgettable trek into the heart of the Annapurnas.

Mosaic is the best company to travel with!! My mom and I traveled to Nepal in Nov 2013 and doing a trek was a must. I contacted Mosaic tours after reading the great reviews and from the minute my communication with them began, I knew I was in great hands. Madhav was wondereful to work with and helped me arrange the best tour for my mom and I's needs. He always responded quickly to my emails and was patient as I worked my way thru deciding what trek was the best option. My first impression of Madhav and the company was one of professionalism and experience, and that impression was only further solidified during our trip. I booked a 21-day trip, including a trek, and a week in Tibet, and Mosaic's services and customer relations continually exceeded my expectations! They were helpful every step of the way, making sure we had the best experience and ensuring we always felt safe and well-prepared for our journey(s). Our trek guide, Pralhad, was awesome and made our trek so much fun! He had the best attitude and while also being extremely professional, was friendly and welcoming. Our overall experience in Nepal and on our trek would not have been the same without him, and I can't imagine having done this trip with a better company. They were excellent on every level and I highly, highly recommend them- no doubt they will help you arrange the trip of a lifetime!!

My wife, mother, friend and I went to Nepal for 10 days in early October 11, for 2 days city tour in Katmandu/Pokara and the Poon Hill Trek (4-5 days). It was our first trip to Nepal in an planning for the trip we had a lot of questions - are tour companies reliable? Is there insurance not only for us but for guides and porters? Are internal flights safe? After the trip, I can some up my experiences in the fullowing bullet points: -Trekking in Nepal was the best walking experience ever and I have been to NZ, Aust, Europe and the US/Canada -You pay for what you get. There are many tour companies, making it hard to differentiate quality from a distance. Mosaic was absolutely fantastic in every area. Details were clear. Everyone was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Out group were and are friends. Accomodations were top class, better than other people I talked to on the trails. Finally,they treat their staff right - all porters and guide had comprehensive insurance and strict carry-weight limits. FYI - there have been instances where porter-related accidents on the trails revealed that no insurance had been taken out for them - meaning the whole cost would fall on the guests hiring them. In addition, it is a real shame to see porters on the trails staggering under 35+kg of luggage becuase cost cutting tour agences hired 2 guides when guests paid for 3 pocketing the cash difference. -Email communication was top-notch and professional. Comprehensive answers were given less than 24 hours after sending. Prices were fair - in the lower to middle range of the companies available, with service throughout absolutely in the higest range. I hope that this review was useful. I will be back next year in the spring for the Langtang trek, and will use Mosaic again for sure. Jed

Had a great Poon Hill trek, although 5 days was too short!!! Will definitely come back and next times brave the Annapurna circuit trek. I would like to especially thank our brilliant guide, Thakur Sapkota & Mosaic Adventure Treks & Expedition, without whom the trek would not have been the same. I would especially request his services on our return.
