Nepal is arguably one of the best trekking destination on the planet. Every year thousands of people visit Nepal to have a glimpse or experience the beauty of the Himalayas.

While most famous treks such as Everest Base Camp and Annapurna Base Camp bring in the majority of adventurers looking for extended forays into the mountains, there are also some shorter hikes that are just as magnificent.

Poon Hill trek makes it to the top as it is a short and relatively easy trek into the Annapurna region. The trek is perfect for those who do not have much time to offer, but still have that burning desire to observe the beauty of snow-capped mountains.
