We pass mostly by the Gurungs villages climbing up the famous Poon Hill, 3210 m, passing by the rhododendron, bamboo & pine forests to reach at our destination – Annapurna Base Camp. We start early in the morning to reach the Annapurna Base camp as the cloud in the noon makes the trail hard to find.
