This moderate trek is a wonderful portion of the Annapurna Circuit that encompasses the stunning rhododendron and magnolia forests and includes the highlight of the Poon Hill sunrise, possibly the most memorable part of the whole Annapurna circuit. This trek is ideal for people with less time who still want to experience the full glory of trekking in the Himalayas.

Good To Know

Asian Trekking is a Nepali expedition operating company established 36 years ago. According to Paragraph 26 of the Tourism Act (2035), no foreign expedition teams or companies are allowed to provide expedition services in Nepal directly and any foreign company must work through a Nepali company licensed by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Government of Nepal. As such, Nepali companies are the ones that provide all the legal, administrative, logistical, guiding and support services in Nepal, while also being legally responsible for the safe and responsible conduct of the expeditions. Booking through foreign expedition companies naturally makes the cost to the customer higher due to the extra layer of administration and profit margins, without necessarily adding any extra value.
