Panorama Trek, also famously known as Poon
Hill Trek, is a relatively easy walk meandering through villages and
rhododendron forests. This invigorating trek reveals some of the best views of
the Himalayas especially from the Poon Hill which is considered as
the best viewpoint in the Annapurna region and in the earth.
Reaching a maximum altitude of 3210m, anyone with a normal level of fitness
would easily undertake this trek comfortably. We can test our stamina at the
Ulleri Hill with more than 3,000 stone steps, one of the world's largest
numbers of stone steps on a hill of this kind. We just imagine the magnificence
of the sunrise over the snow-capped Himalayas that
we will witness during this trek, illuminating the peaks of the entire range
and leaving us spellbound!
The trek begins
with a guided sightseeing program in Kathmandu. After we take a flight to reach
the serene lakeside city of Pokhara, the real walking begins from
Nayapul. While trekking along to Ulleri and Ghorepani, we marvel at colorful
orchids and clear views of the splendid high mountains including the two
eight-thousanders - Mt. Annapurna (8091m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m).
Upon reaching the final destination, Poon Hill (3210m)
is a reward in itself, perhaps one of the most beautiful viewpoints on earth.
The added presence of rice terraces completes the picture making it a
photographer's paradise. Then, we trek to the beautiful Gurung village of
Ghandruk and enjoy the ethnic hospitality along with the cultural magnificence
of Gurung Museum. Trekking through the Rhododendron forest that bloom with
red flowers during the springtime, descending down to Birethanti, passing by
waterfalls and few small villages and settlements heightens our thrilling
experiences. We further walk to Naya Pul and then drive to Pokhara which
announces the end of this marvelous trek.
The 9-day Trek itinerary is
designed for the trekkers who want a less demanding but short and beautiful
trek, especially with their family and kids in the rural mountainside with
up-close Himalayan views. Trekkers who want a longer trek in Annapurna region
to Machhapuchhre and
Annapurna Base camp, Annapurna Sanctuary trek - 14 Days is the best option. If
we are looking for a more demanding trek with whole Annapurna circuit
to cover in about two week's time, Everest Trek, Annapurna Cuircuite Trek
- 17 Days would be fine for us. For a longer and more demanding trek in
Annapurna circuit, please visit Annapurna Circuit Trek - 21 Days.
Autumn (mid-Sept to
mid-Dec) and Spring (March to May) are the best seasons for the Annapurna sunrise
Trek. The weather is sunny and warm, with outstanding views. Winter (Dec, Jan,
Feb) is also good for this Trek, only colder (obviously). The trekking routes
are crowded during Spring and Autumn but during winter the routes are not
packed and we could enjoy rather best of nature.
Explore Kathmandu and
views of the Himalayas from Poon Hill
Ghandruk village with
its Gurung inhabitants and their unique cultures
Colorful trails with

Health and Experience Requirements
Annapurna Panorama Trekking is a easy Trek not so much difficult trip suitable for passionate adventurers who have ability to walk at least 6-7 hours a day with a light day pack. In some days we might even need to walk more hours. Walking in higher altitude is physically demanding than walking in the lower altitudes; however, those in excellent physical condition with above average fitness and some hiking experience can do this trek. Positive attitude, self-confidence and strong determination are things that aid to accomplish trip successfully. Exercising and jogging regularly for some weeks prior of the trip are good idea to enhance strength and stability.
It is a condition upon trips that all clients be insured for comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and treatment costs). Please note that we don't arrange or sell insurance.
Annapurna Panorama Trekking itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to result in death. The higher the altitude, the less oxygen will be in the air. For example, at an altitude above of 5000m, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, our body needs many days to adapt to an environment with less oxygen. Itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So, for a safe trek, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are symptoms of AMS.
