CLEO (Singapore) - - LIFESTYLIS­T -

From the stepped ter­races of wheat fields to the snow-capped peaks of the Hi­malayan moun­tains, the Poon Hill trek of­fers myr­iad views that are a feast for the eyes. You’ll cut through quaint vil­lages and ver­dant forests where pretty rhodo­den­dron flow­ers bloom in abun­dance dur­ing spring.

While you take a break to catch your breath, watch as the pass­ing clouds cast a shadow play on the world be­low you. Get a glimpse of life in the moun­tains as cheeky chil­dren ped­dle drinks to pass­ing trekkers, or make way for car­a­vans of mules as they trans­port sup­plies on their backs. From the vil­lage of Ghorepani, make a fi­nal burst up to Poon Hill and watch the sun rise from be­hind the Hi­malayas. It’s be­yond mag­i­cal.
