Great views for sunrise. If you don't have time for the Annapurna Circuit or Thorong La this is not a bad alternative.

Was our first trip trekking. I thought it is considered as a easy track, it is definitely not an easy one :). Early weak (around 4AM), struggling with cold weather. Struggling with steep steps to reach Poon Hill. But I can guarantee, it was worth the effort!

When I went there, it was cloudy and we did not see the sunrise, but it was still memorable. Please be advised that you need to climb 500 meters of stairs (circa 3500 steps). It is a hard trip, but worth it.

Woke up at 4 AM for the usual sunrise hike. The view of the sun climbing over the Annapurnas was stunning, but with that comes the price of many, many freezing and loud tourists trying to get a photograph without random people blocking them. If there was an off-season for Annapurna trekking, I'd definitely come back here, but alas there... More

That was top point of our trekking to see Annapurna and we almost missed it as our guide at 3:30am said that the top is cloudy and we won't see anything, but 20min later he knock our door - we go! I will never forget that rush to be there and see sun lighting tops of mountains... Just go go... More
