Poonhill is not simply a destination, it’s an emotion. With the beautiful panoramic view of the western Himalayas at our disposal, one doesn’t simply leave without taking a well-deserved picture. Combine that with the natural hot spring that provides maximum relaxation and here you have a perfect short trek.
This is a relatively easy trek. As we walk around the local villages and thick forests with the beautiful mountains at the distance, we reach Poon hill (3,210m). From there we get to witness the absolute best the mountains flaunt at us. Mt. Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Mt. Hiuchuli (6,441m), and many of the Annapurna range as well as Mt. Macchapuchre (6,993m) can be seen reflecting sunlight with their pristine surface. The natural hot spring in Jhinu Danda is one of the major attraction in this trek. As we move down towards the hot spring through the forests, the joy is immense and even more so when you actually get to jump in one. The bath at the hot spring is the biggest pain reliever one can experience. All the stress from the trek is completely alleviated here and trekkers get out as fresh as ever.
The drive back to Pokhara leaves with many memories from the Poon hill Hotspring trek full of exquisite nature and diverse cultures that they have witnessed.
