Poon Hill

Poon Hill

Poon Hill, is a famous viewpoint in the Himalayas, and one of the only places on the Annapurna Circuit where Annapurna I (8091m – 10th highest mountain in the world) may be seen, as well as Dhaulagiri.

A modest entry fee to the Poon Hill, a 50 minute uphill walk from Ghorepan, is requested in early morning. In usual Nepali style a teashop may be found at the top.

This post is part of the series on the Annapurna Circuit walked in October 2015, though I visited Poon Hill in connection with walking up to the Annapurna Base Camp in 2014.
