Trip Overview

From the beautiful Annapurna Mountains to the rich ethnic Rai and Limbu culture, the Mardi Himal Trek via Poon Hill is the best short trek of the Annapurna region.

Best Features of the Mardi Himal Poon Hill trek

This hike takes a different approach to the regular trekking journey. Correspondingly, it takes trekkers to the famous vantage point of Poon Hill. The panoramic views of the majestic mountains from Poon Hill are simply magnificent. Similarly, another major highlight of the trek is the ethnic village of Ghorepani. As such, Poon Hill has earned its fame as one of the best vantage points in the country because it presents panoramic views of the entire Annapurna massif. Moreover, the view of the rising sun from Poon Hill amidst the mountains is a phenomenon indescribable in words. It is something that should not be missed!

Similarly, along with the pristine natural beauty, this adventure also presents a myriad of villages occupied by the ethnic Rai, Magar, and Limbu people. It is a great way to experience the diverse culture of the Himalayan people. Mani stone walls, chortens, and colorful prayer flags line the trekking path. Furthermore, mountain peaks like the Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, and the Annapurna range contrast the natural beauty of the Himalayan foothills and green hemlocks.

Additionally, the Poon Hill Mardi Himala trek begins from the country’s tourist hub- Pokhara city. In the city, trekkers can also enjoy a leisurely boat ride on the beautiful Phewa Lake.
