Annapurna Base Camp with Poonhill

Poonhill trek is a very accessible to everyone. You reach Poonhill 3210 meters where you can enjoy the first rays of sunlight shining on the peaks of the Annapurna area. Despite the shorter period, you pass forests, dense jungle, rice fields, the authentic villages where the Magar and Gurung live, called Ullari and you hear the water splashing from the falls. When the weather is clear you get 600 kilometers of views of the Himalayas and are able to see Machhapuchhare, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna III, Hiunchuli and Gangapurna.

Annapurna Region is considered one of the most popular trekking destinations in Nepal, if not the entire world. This won't come as a surprise because of the area's fantastic landscapes and scenaries, abundance of flora and fauna, and the mesmerizing culture and traditions very apparent in the area up to this day. It also has a wide range of trekking route options with varying degrees of difficulty and fitness requirement that would cater to every trekker no matter their skill level and experience.

Most of the treks in the Annapurna region start and end in Pokhara, a bustling metropolis located at the very foot of the Himlayas. It is a city reminiscent of Thamel in Kathmandu with its numerous outdoor shops, restaurants and hotels. Pokhara boasts of a majestic view of the entire Annapurna range, a 140-km stretch housing some of the world's most beautiful and challenging peaks. The main highlight of this view is the Annapurna I (8,091 masl), the tenth highest mountain inthe world, along with Machhapuchhre's fish tail peak.
