From Pokhara, we walk along picturesque villages and one of Nepal’s biggest rhododendron forests, which, in spring, bursting with many different hues. The trail to this tremendous scene ascends the Annapurna foothills through forested hillsides, where we are given a taste of Nepal’s magical and majestic vistas with a spectacular sunrise over the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges.

This journey of excitement and adventure takes us deep inside the Annapurna Conservation Area. At an altitude of 3210 m, Poonhill is one of the best sunrise viewpoints in the Annapurna region. The path to legendary Poon Hill climbs up the famous Ulleri ko Ukalo (Annapurna Conservation Area. At an altitude of 3210 m, Poonhill is one of the best sunrise viewpoints in the Annapurna region. The path to legendary Poon Hill climbs up the famous Ulleri ko Ukalo (uphill), which if walked steadily takes 2-3 hours to reach the top, but if you take it easy, it takes a whole day to climb up to reach the day's destination: Ghorepani.

After an evening at Ghorepani, the pinnacle of the trip is the next day when you will be on top of Poon Hill, also known as the "Wender of Asia," where you will get a chance to see the best sunrise view in the garden of the Himalayas. Mt Fishtail 6997M, Mt Annapurna South 7219M, Mt Annapurna I 8091M, Mt Nilgiri 7061M, Mt Gangapura 7455M, Mt Dhaulagiri 8172M, Mt Dhaulagiri I 7751M, Mt Dhaulagiri II 7715 M, Mt Dhaulagiri IV 7661M, Mt.On Poon Hill, you will enjoy the glowing colors of nature from one side to another, the rising sun, and its reflection on the mountain before you actually see the sun. From the top of the hill, you can see the Tibetan plateau, the city behind the mountains, the world's deepest gorge, the world's seventh-highest Dhaulagiri range, and many more.

Early in the morning, a determined traveler climbs up to reach the top of the hill to capture the beauty, both in his heart and soul and for his beloved camera. Here at the top, you become an artist, critic, and environmentalist, and you become a happy soul to be able to see one of the beautiful creations of nature.

At Poon Hill, joy and love are tender and bless each soul with passion and a sign of victory. The differences in topography and climatic conditions amaze you with the variety in vegetation on each step and at each corner. After spending one beautiful morning on top of the hill with other happy travelers, you know you'll return someday.

From Poonhill, we trek to the hidden stronghold of Annapurna Base Camp (also known as Annapurna Sanctuary or ABC), just another one of Nepal’s scenic and adventurous trekking routes. It is a deep glacier, which gives the effect of an amphitheater surrounded by a ring of high peaks, including Hun Chuli, Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Gangapurna, Annapurna III, and Machhapuchhre. The Range of Annapurna holds huge glaciers on its slopes. Mt. Annapurna I is the main peak of this chain of mountains, which includes four other peaks that share its name: Annapurna II (7937 m), Annapurna III (7555 m), Annapurna IV (7525 m), Annapurna South (7219 m).

Mt. Annapurna, the 10th highest mountain in the world, is at an altitude of 8,091 m (26,545 ft). Annapurna is a Sanskrit name that means "Full of Grains" and is normally translated as "Goddess of the Harvests" or more simply "The Provider." In Hinduism, Annapurna is regarded as "the universal and timeless kitchen goddess, the mother who feeds." It is located east of a great gorge cut through the Himalayas by the Kali Gandaki River, which separates it from the Dhaulagiri massif.
