Poon Hill
save place
Face to face with the giants
It takes a couple of days to get there. But getting yourself out of bed at 4 a.m. to hike uphill through the cold and dark himalayan night is even more demanding. But the views are 100% worth every effort... When you reach the summit of Poon Hill (3210m) at sunrise you'll witness the giants Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Machapuchare ("Fish Tail") performing in the fresh sunlight like actors on a big stage. It's simply amazing to be there - even if you have to share this moment with some fellow trekkers... On the picture you can see Dhaulagiri - with 8190m the #7 on the list of the highest summits of the world. ---
