Poon Hill

These 3 shots were taken on a walk from Ghorepani up to Poon Hill, 3210m above sea level. The potentially life-threatening Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) will start to develop above 3000m, so many people trek up Poon Hill to help acclimatise to the altitude. Poon Hill also has some of the best views of the Annapurna’s on offer, and it was unfortunate that the summit was covered with cloud when we went up there. Happy New Year!
