7 -days Poon hill Annapurna trek Overview

       Poon Hill trekking is a family trekking package in Annapurna Trekking Region in Nepal. You will be exploring the great view of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri from the top-hills of Poon Hill. A beautiful sunrise is a major attraction of this place and the panoramic view during sunrise is beyond your imagination. As you can have lots of panoramic views from the top this route also known as Annapurna Panorama Trek. 

             Gurung and Magar are the main castes who live in this area. Some of the local Buddhists have made beautiful monasteries on our route to reach Poonhill and Ghorepani. Short trekking of 4-5 days from Kathmandu will give you this much experience, adventure, and panoramic view. The green hills around our route are also awesome to stare at. Pine, Oak and bamboo forest looks even more beautiful when snowfall occurs in the month of November-February. Those Rhododendron forests covered with snow will take your breath away. 

7 -days Poon hill Annapurna trek Itinerary

  Arrival in Kathmandu international airport, our company representative we will pick up to the airport and by private vehicle drop in your hotel. 

On our second day, we will start preparing for your trek. One of Our representative will remind you to get all the permits necessary for this trek. You will be reminded to check your trek  insurance policy and provide us a copy of it. You will  meet your Team leader and other support professionals who will check your trekking gears to make sure they meet the requirements. After a brief introduction with the crew, one of our tour operator will take you to a city tour. You will be visiting 4 heritage sites, that hold historical, religious and cultural significances.A

1. Boudhhanath:

Boudhanath, also called as Jharung Khasor, is situated 8 km to the east from the city center . It is one of the seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites located in Kathmandu. It can be viewed from the premises of TIA as you are about to land from your flight. The great Boudhanatha Stupa was built in 5th century which makes it one of the ancient and magnificent Stupa in the world. It is also the largest Stupa in the world. Considered the most holy pilgrimage for Buddhists all around the world, it is believed that the power and blessings of The Great Stupa  are far beyond the understandings of human beings. It is widely believed that whoever prays and worship with a pure heart at Boudhanath creates good karma therefore the way to hell and dark realms are closed to them, fulfilling their wishes.

An early morning or late evening visit to The Great Stupa gives you a vibe of Tibetian culture . The smoke from butter candlelights and incandescents fill the aura with pleasing smell, offering peace to your mind and soul. You can stroll around the area for buying souvenirs, metal handicrafts, Thangkas etc. or just catch a good breakfast or dinner with an aerial view of Boudhanath from the rooftop cafés and restaurants. 

2. Patan Durbar Square:

Patan , also called Lalitpur, is considered to be the oldest city among the three cities of Kathmandu valley. It is a home to the city's, better to say Nepal's finest craftsmen who have been able to preserve the ancient Newari culture and ancient technique of metal handicrafts. The city inherits one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Patan Durbar Square. Patan Durbar Square is an old palace of the Malla kings who ruled the city during Malla regime. The artistic handicrafts and metal crafts seen everywhere makes this place a living historical museum. Another place to see inside the Durbar square area is the Patan Museum. The museum lies inside the palace and has a collection of fine historical metal craft, wood carvings and historical Malla throne of the Malla regime. The Krishna Temple in the west premises of Durbar Square is another fine example of this artistic heritage. The temple was built by King Siddhi Narsingh Malla in 1637. Another must see place is the Mahabouddha , a magnificent terracotta temple built with Sikhara style containing 1000 images of Buddha. Filled with historical crafts and monuments that can be traced back to the 16th century, the Square is a home to 136 bushels (courtyards) and 55 temples. It is one of the major sacred sites for both Buddhists and Hindus. Beyond the temples, lie a lot of restaurants and cafés with rooftops, who serve different continental foods along with Newari traditional food. 

3. Pashupatinath :

Considered to be one of the four most important religious heritage for Hindus around the world, specially for the devotees of Lord Shiva, it is another UNESCO World Heritage Site worth a visit when you are at Kathmandu. Located 3 km north-west from the city, Pashupatinath is a home to 492 temples, 15 Shivalayas (shrines of Lord Shiva) and 12 Jyotirlinga (phallic shrines) which carry significant religious values. It is considered that the place has been existed there long before the millennia after the appearance of Shiva Linga. But the temple was built in 5th century by King Prachanda Dev of Lichhavi Dynasty and later renovated by the Malla kings of the Malla Dynasty. The temple is a common sacred site to Hindus and Buddhists. The main temple is fortified within the walls guarded by Nepal Police and Nepal Army and is denied entry to non-Hindus. Another new experience for the non-Hindu visitors is to watch the cremation ceremony. Though it is not recommended to faint-hearted people. 

4. Swoyambhu Mahachaitya :

Situated on a hilltop from a distance of 3 km from the main city, Swoyambhu Mahachaitya (Swoyambhunath) is one of the holiest Buddhist site in Nepal. The stupa has  been a paradigm of faith and harmony for centuries with Hindu temples and deities carved within  this  holy Buddhist site. It is believed that the glory and prosperity of Kathmandu valley was started from this point of time. Apart from being a sacred place, the hilltop also act as an overlook from where one can enjoy the panoramic view of the extensive valley.  Swoyambhu "self-existent one" was built by King Manadeva of Lichhavi Dynasty in 460 A.D. By the 13th century, it had become an important centre of Buddhism. Since then a lot of Hindus and Buddhists of whole world visit this place every year for prayers. The largest image of the Sakyamuni Buddha in Nepal rests on a high pedestal on the western side of Swoyambhunath. A temple dedicated to Saraswati (often called ManjuShree by Buddhists), goddess of learning is built behind the hilltop. The stupa premises is filled with Buddhist shrines, and statues of Hindu deities. The prayer wheels, the vibrant prayer flags, chanting of Buddhist Monks, the monkeys chattering, gives this place a combination of natural and religious vibe. One can feel the inner pace and tranquillity after visiting this Sacred place.
