We climbed to see the sunrise and it was a slight disappointment. Huge crowd of people and quite restless atmosphere. But the trek there was amazing! We walked from Nayapool via Ulleri (first night we stayed in a very special non-touristy village called Sabet! There is a very cute old couple who have a small guesthouse) and after Ghorepani we...

I did not hire a porter or a guide. Just going solo throughout my trek. And it was tough but totally doable. I know I trek slow, that's also another reason I chose to go solo as well. But that allows me to take time to enjoy the beauty of the Annapurna National Park and Poon Hill is the first... More

Great hike and really cool if you time it when the rhododendron trees are in bloom. That said perhaps more chance of clouds at that time but we got great views as it varied with clouds moving in and out. Be prepared as its a zoo up there with several hundred people making the predawn hike up for sunrise. Fun... More

Ghorepani-Poon hill trekking is one of the exciting trekking trails in Nepal. Throughout the trek, you get to experience nature at its best. The uphill trek trail is surely going to get your sweats off, but at the end of the day, it is something that is worth remembering. The sunrise view from Poon Hill is jaw dropping; just make...

My partner and I went to see the sunrise at Poon Hill and it was amazing. We went on a four day trek to get there. It was worth every step! I will be recommending it to my friends and family 😄

Was worth the 4.30am wake up, especially after trekking for 8 hours the previous day. However Be warned, the walk up to Poon Hill from Ghorepani is not easy, it is worth leaving a little bit earlier in the morning to allow yourself more time to comfortable make it to the top. The pain will be forgotten one you summit... More

We did the 4 night trek to Poon Hill and it was great. The second day is the hardest with about 5 hours of mostly stairs. Getting up at 4:30 and walking to poon Hill to watch the sunrise was the highlight. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great trek in Nepal

Such a great experience! Do it! We went with 'Adventure Magic Treks' (esp. Guide Ganesh - legend!) where he really went out of his way to ensure we had an epic time!!

Even tough it is a little crowded, the hiking there is beautiful, great views. Just be careful with big groups, sometimes there is not place in the guesthouses because of that annoyance. The place will be full of people at sunrise so go there early to catch a nice spot.
