Annapurna Poon Hill Trek Nepal | Part 1

Part 1 of a 3 part video series.

We had been travelling for just over a year and had crossed the border from India to Nepal, with plans to do some trekking in the Himalaya region. ¬†In previous years, we had already trekked Everest Base Camp, so this time we wanted to try other areas. Elise’s Dad, Michael has been teasing us over Skype, that he really wanted to come over to visit us somewhere in the world. I thought Nepal would be a perfect opportunity for him to see us and experience something he loves doing in a landscape so far removed from ours back in Australia.

I mentioned it to Elise and we invited him. Before we knew it, 2 weeks later we embraced him at the airport and began our preparations for our 5 day Poon Hill Trek throughout the Annapurna Region.

3000 steps on the Poon Hill Trek

We began our trip with a thrilling ride in a mini van along a twisted, cascading road all the way from Pokhara to Ghorepani which would be the beginning of our gruelling trek up the mountainside. The video below will show you the spectacular view and the some 3000 steps we needed to climb to get arrive at our first tea house!

  1. Looks like an awesome trek! We are starting our trip in Japan in September and will eventually make our way over to Nepal where we want to do both the Everest Base Camp trek and the Annapurna one!

      Everest Base Camp is nice trek, however I would have to say that the Annapurna Region is must more beautiful and less crowded on the trail. I know that most people have in there mind that Everest is the one to do. But really consider trying to do both while you are there. You won’t be disappointed.

  2. I thought I lucked out with the weather when I was in the area, but that looks like an absolutely perfect day. Apart from all the steps.

      We were extremely lucky with the weather and it only snowed for one day. Great conditions for trekking, but there were so many bloody steps!
