A must visit site in a life time. Superb sunrise on Dhaulagiri Himalayan range and sunset on the west face of Annapurna range... Impressive red forest of Rhododendron trees with red and pink flowers in early spring...

It's a must destination of trekking in Annapurna trail. When the sky is clear, you can see the breathtaking view of many peaks of Mount Annapurna. The sunrise (around 6am) is crowded, but it worths to go up for it. Bring a warm cloth as it gets cold and windy up there. In brief, you shouldn't miss it!!

When I was here it was so busy that I was in someone's photo no matter where I stood. So I walked a little down through some plants so I could experience the sunrise in peace (I'm not counting that as Poon Hill). If you want a really great experience, there are some hills at the beginning of the trail... More

Bearing in mind this was quite a trek to get here, Poon Hill had to deliver... And it so did. Sunrise is one of the best memories I have and up here it was spectacular . You get to see the Annapura Mountains in all their glory and there is enough room at the top for everyone. Recommend this a... More

If you only go as far as Poon Hill or Ghorepani, then this is the best view that you can get. Just 30min of the trek from Ghorepani to Tadapani, you can witness another breathtaking view of the same scene. This time for free. Compared to the view at around Annapurna Base Camp, this one can be considered as an... More

It's everything you would expect and more. You may get discouraged by the 1 hr steep uphill hike in the dark to make it for sunrise....but it is worth every step. Pictures can't begin to convey the feeling of standing in front of those massive peaks as the sun begins to light the sky. The highlight of my trek

This was by far the best views we got of the mountain ranges. We went up for sunrise & it was absolutely breath taking!

Trekking up there in ice & snow, whilst made it a bit more difficult, was a bit special. The absolutely awesome views made getting up at 4am in freezing cold well worth it. Couldn't believe they actually sell HIT cuppa tea at the top, so glad of it.

Oh Poon Hill how 4:30 AM came so early and the climb was not the best part from Ghorepani however, once at the top of course it made it all worth the climb. What an amazing view of the Annapurna region. The trek to Poon Hill is great for beginners who are looking for a little taste of what trekking... More
