It is very suitable for those willing to observe the splendid landscape of Nepal both by foot and by the birds-eye view. Therefore, it surely increases the thrill. The journey of the Poon Hill Heli Trek follows the regular itinerary of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. Trekkers start their walking journey from either Tikhedhunga or Hille. Generally, the journey from Hille is comparatively comfortable than from Tikhedhunga. Trekkers have to walk more uphill from the latter and on the comfortable flat from the former. 

Once trekkers are in Hille or Tikhedhunga, after the jeep drive from Pokhara; the walking starts. The first stop is at Ulleri. The place is very vibrant and is on the sloping hill. There are numerous teahouses as well as villages. Therefore, one can interact with the fellow trekkers as well as with locals. The journey from Ulleri to Ghorepani is very enticing. It has everything an ideal walking trail needs. Green lush forests, cool clean running stream and chirping sound of birds are regulars of the trail. As trekkers walk continuously uphill the body tires but the mind keeps on the amazing thrill spirit. The fresh air is definitely a bonus for the city dwellers.

At the Ghorepani, the astounding panoramic view of mountains relaxes the tired body of trekkers. The place is the vantage point for the splendid landscape viewing of the Annapurna region of Nepal. The next morning is the most momentous. It is the day of Poon Hill Sunrise View. Early in the morning trekkers will have to walk for about 45 minutes to reach the Poon Hilltop (3210 m). The morning sun rays coming out of the casement of snowcapped mountains are a joy to behold. Annapurna range, Machhapuchhre, Dhaulagiri, Himchuli, Gangapurna are the mountains to see from the top. The morning sun kissing the horizon and lighting the surrounding hills is definitely an art of nature.
