Annapurna View Trekking

Annapurna panorama view short trekking is one of the most popular and comfortable treks in Nepal which is famous for its stunning views from Poon Hill. Short Annapurna panorama view trekking is also known as the Annapurna panorama, a pleasant and serene trek in the foothills of the Annapurna region. With so much to offer such as the magical blend of diverse culture, nature, and ancient villages with breathtaking views of Annapurna ranges and sunrise at Poon Hill, Annapurna panorama view trekking is a perfect pick. Since the trek is an altitude-free, short and relatively easy trek on a warm and pleasant trail it can be the perfect choice for those seeking a trek that isn’t hard on the knees. Particularly designed for those adventure and nature lovers who have a bucket list to explore the views of the spectacular snow-covered Himalayan peaks with a touch of unique culture and traditions.

As per your wish, we undertake the Annapurna panorama view short trek with a scenic drive or mountain flight from Kathmandu to the ever-vivacious city of Pokhara. If you prefer a tourist bus drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara, it takes about 6 hours attended by terrific and scenic views. Whereas, if you happen to opt for a mountain flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, it takes about 35 minutes which flies you through the captivating northern Himalayas. Pokhara, a major tourist hub is the perfect definition of a beautiful city with crystal-clear lakes and magic caves. Annapurna panorama view short tour starts from here, Pokhara city is a popular commencing point for treks in the Annapurna region. With a scenic and tranquil two hours drive to a new bridge (Nayapul), our trek really begins from this point on.

Getting to Poon Hill viewpoint from where the views are marvelous is not an easy task but it sure is worth it. It requires hiking for a couple of days on a pleasant and tranquil trail where we make the decent mountain lodges home for a day or two. As we get ahead with our trek, we get to Tadapani, which is another great viewpoint for beautiful mountain peaks including Annapurna South, Hiunchuli, and Fishtail. As we move to Pothana, Dhampus, we make a pit stop at the Gurung settlement of Ghandruk, which is one of the most beautiful villages and which is perfect to get to know the unique Nepalese culture, religions, people, and lifestyle.

Wonderful Annapurna Panorama View Hike

Doing the Annapurna Panorama View Trek with Alpine Eco Trek was a fantastic experience. I booked this trek at a reasonable price over the Alpine Eco Trek website in advance and got a lot of information and tips from Ram. Everything was well organized. My group was supposed to consist of 2 to 5 trekkers with their guide and porters but even though no one else joined the Alpine Eco Trek insisted on letting me go for the trek. The service they provided me was above my expectations, not only from Alpine Eco Trek but also from my guide Ashok. He was fluent in English and knew everything about the trek, the natural surroundings, the flora and fauna and culture and lifestyle of locals. We shared a lot of interesting conversations and the balance between talking and just enjoying the beautiful nature was great. The pace of walking was always adjusted to my liking. Ashok got me the nicest accommodations with the best views at the lodges and helped me with anything I needed. I am very happy to recommend Alpine Eco Trek and Ashok to anyone planning to go for a trek in Nepalese beautiful mountains. Thank you, Ram, for your excellent arrangements.
