The view from Poo Hill is just fantastic. It is definitely worth the effort to climb up the mountain so early in the morning.

I have to insist everyone to take the poon hill trek once in Nepal. I organized the trek for my family and I have to say it was worth it. You will get to know the true beauty of Earth.

Amazing view at sunrise ( & I believe at sunset too). Well worth setting off 1 hour before sunrise, dressed up for the cold weather, to see the sunrise at Poon Hill. In December it was fairly quiet.

Hi Olga, if you just want to get there for record, it’s possible but to enjoy the nature and hike I think it’s impossible. It’s possible that you make this trip without a guide for sure.

7 day trek, Mardi Himal or Poon Hill? (4 Replies)
Hi After lots of good advice on the forum we have selected two good options for a 7 day trek. Now we're trying to pick between them and wonder if anyone can advise us the pro's and con's we feel that Poon Hill might be a little short and possibly busy, whereas Mardi Himal maybe a little more challenging but is the scenery as spectacular? Any advice would be very welcome. Thanks

Hello, I suggest PunHill Trekking Because This Is Comfortable Trek in Nepal . Mardi is Camping Trek Area, You need to Prepare All Camping .
Advice for first time trekker on Poon Hill trek. (3 Replies)
Hi, I would be doing the Poon Hill trek in 1st week of June. I would be a first time treker, I have never trekked before. 1. Any special precautions I should take regarding health etc during this time of monsoon ? Specific or general advice regarding this trek, Dos and Donts would be much appreciated. Thanks, Sudarshan

Response fromAli0211|
I posted a recent gear list recently and there are medical supply and other suggestions. June is monsoon rain so take medium size collapsible umbrella as using only raincoat is too sweaty. There may be mosquitoes at lower altitude in the wet period. Consult your doctor for any vaccinations needed and check online for recommendations.
