If you are able to walk in the hills, the trekking is a must when visiting Nepal. Of course one can observe the Himalayas from the distance, but nothing compares with the views you see when on trail. We have visited Poon Hill early morning to catch sunrise up there. In order to get there one time we started at... More

its about a five day hike from Pokhara. Not super technical, but good fun and at an altitude of 3000M you will need some thermal gear for the evenings.

Poonhill at 3200meters is one of the best points to get amazing view of Himalayas. Small town of Ghorepani takes care of accommodation and other needs.

The place itself is great, with an amazing panorama view of the whole Annapurna range. They charge foreigners about 100 rupees to enter the viewpoint area. Downside is that the place can get extremely crowded: in high season there will be some hundreds of tourists who climb up in the early morning, every day. That doesn't feel good to me.... More

A pleasant walk but the altitude might catch you out as it's a steep ascent. The view is pretty amazing but there's always lots of other tourists so it can be hard to get a good picture without lots of other strangers in it!

If you are crunched with time while you are in Nepal this is a trail to be as you can complete this trek in 3 days ( 2 days up and 1 day down) still you can get away with a good view of the Annapurna Range and also a good view of Dhaulagiri. It's going to be a 30... More
