Ghalegaun to Poon Hill Trek

The Poon Hill trek in the Annapurna Conservation Area offers spectacular mountain views all along the trail, with close-ups of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. This stretch is mostly inhabited by the Gurung people who will welcome you warmly to their homestays. Although the Annapurna Area is the most popular trekking region in Nepal most of the lower altitude trails don’t see very many tourists (yet) and you will find yourself having the beautiful forests and trails all to yourself in many sections.
