My friend and I did a 9 day trek which included the trek to Annapurna Base Camp and then another loop out to Poon Hill. While walking there, we would occasionally meet trekkers who promised us a heaven on earth... but we did not fully believe this description until we arrived at the foot of the 10th highest mountain in the world and experienced its beauty and serenity. We took Diamox (the altitude sickness medication) and I still experienced some minor altitude sickness in the final 2 hours before arrival, but it got better when I took the treatment dose of Diamox so I was able to continue. The landscape of the final two hours is dramatic, and gives a taste of the Base Camp. We noticed that many trekkers arrived and left right away, but my friend and I stayed around 3 hours enjoying the beautiful scenery. Walking a bit beyond the area of the tea houses, we wandered around the area of the glacier and appreciated the prayer flags set against the stark snowy background. Truly spectacular and unforgettable.
