Annapurna Panorama Trek

Annapurna Panorama Trek

Annapurna Panorama Trek is part of Annapurna trek and is one of the shortest routes in the Annapurna region. The trek is relatively easy to do as compared to other trekking routes of Annapurna and appropriate for trekkers of all age groups and physical limits. 

 

Annapurna Panorama Trek offers a fulfilling journey to experience the pristine nature and wildlife and local culture and hospitality as well as exclusive views of Himalayas including Dhaulagiri (8,167m.) and Annapurna (8,091m.), Nilgiri (7061m.), Gangapurna (7455m.), Machapuchre (6993m), Lamjung Himal (6983m.), Manaslu (8156m.) and many other named and unnamed snow-capped peaks. You will walk through forests, terraced fields, typical Nepali villages and interact with local communities along the way. The highest point of the trek is Poon Hill (3210m) one of the best vantage point to watch the spectacular views of the snow-capped Himalayas. 
 

Due to its low elevation reach and accessibility, the Annapurna Panorama Trek can be done in all seasons. Especially in Spring season you will be able to enjoy colorful rhododendron flowers all over the hills as forests come alive with greenery and wildlife.

    MALAYSIA BOLEH !!!

    To Nava, Raj and Donna, Thank you for a good time in Nepal. All your assistance, friendliness and admire is appreciated. We trekked from Nayapul, on to PoonHill then Annapurna Base Camp (ABC) and back. Since we had only 8 days to spend, it was a tiring hike. Nevertheless, it was a good trip with plenty of stunning views. The accommodation provided along the trek was good and we are very satisfied with the overall package. 
     
    Thanks also to our porters; Gopal and Ram. They both were friendly, helpful and courteous. 
     
    Many thanks again and we will be back for more activities of Nepal!
