As you proceed slowly along the trek upward, the varied characteristics of nature and those of the cultures and customs of different ethnic groups are noticed. From a starting altitude of 1300m you will climb to 3210m at Poon Hill, where you will enjoy not only a superb panorama of both Annapurna and Dhaulagiri but also a splendid and magnificent view of sunrise. Poonhill is one of the most interesting features of this trekking tour.
The downward return trek becomes different from that of upward. It flows through one of the biggest forests of rhododendron found in the world. If the month is right, the complete forest becomes a mixture of white and red blossoms of rhododendron.
The trek provides a challenging and rewarding way of seeing some of the large Himalayan peaks up close, as well as viewing the culture of villages in central Nepal.
