Nepal Photos: Poon Hill

Pictures from the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek and sunrise over the Annapurna Range.

I’m not going to try and name the peaks because I know I’ll just mangle them. Take the trek yourself; it’s much better in person anyways.

The photos are in reverse chronological order, but I’m too lazy to fix them. If it bothers you THAT MUCH, just go to the bottom of the post and scroll up.

Enjoy!

Fishtail Peak. The only unclimbed peak in Nepal. The Nepali consider it sacred.

How Crowded is Poon Hill Trek

Maybe a third of the crowd… taken from a big tower on the hill.

If you enjoy the photos, and would like to learn more about the experience of trekking in Nepal, I’ve been writing a book about it! Check out the published chapters here. Best!
