Poon Hill

Probably a good view point of the Himalayas in the Annapurna region. You can be seen the three 8000 meters peak Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu if the weather is good. Also you can find the deepest george in the world between Dhaulagiri (8,167m) and Annapurna I (8,091m). This poon hill tower was easablish by the British soldier Capt Tek bahadur Poon who was retired from his job and made a view tower to observe the Himalayas on the memory of his mother. Which is now become a part of the trek in the Annapurna regions trekking.
