At the climax of this trek, you will climb Poonhill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountainscapes on Earth.

Poon hill  was colorful , Hong Kong

I just finished Poon Hill trek 3 days with my son. The trek was amazing. we started trek on end of the March 2017. The jungle was so colorful in this region, the different Rhododendron species really jungle make colorful, so you may see tall trees boasting large white flowers, purple-flowered shrubs, or tiny plants creeping along the ground with large red flowers.

Our trek guide Ramesh has a great knowledge of the Rhododendron species. They are rhododendron arboreum, rhododendron campanulatum, rhododendron campylocarpum, rhododendron falconeri, rhododendron grande, rhododendron forrestii, and many more. Rhododendron arboreum, the national flower of Nepal.

Poon hill Nepal 2017 , USA

In 2017 winter we have plan Poon hill trek 3 days. It was the trip of a lifetime! My husband and I enjoyed our Annapurna trek with Himalayan Smile Treks in January 2017. We appreciated the knowledge, care, and attention of our guide Pramod Pageni.

The walking was hard at times but the scenery was out of imagination. The first days last two hours the trail continuous uphill stone stairs up to Ulleri Magar village. The food was generally very good and we didn’t suffer any stomach upsets at all. Chandra our porter was such a fantastic help and always waited along the way throughout the days. The spectacular view of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain view from Poon Hill.

We loved the trip and look forward to another trek someday soon. I’ll be extremely happy to use the same trekking company and hopefully guide as well.

Amazing Dhaulagiri view from Poon hill , Singapore

Our Poon hill trek 3 days is wonderful, we cannot express our feeling how grateful of the Himalayan Smile Treks. The whole trek has been cast in fond memories It is hassle free shall cherish throughout and because of the trek. We found the Himalayan Smile Treks has a professional team of guides and support staff.

The guide Dharma guide was very knowledgeable, patient and kind. This was important because we saw several groups that did not seem as well taken care of. We were able to just enjoy the walk and that made all the difference.

I do look forward to many more treks with them …and congratulate the entire team on the exceptional work they all put in.
