We should know how to define the name of Poon Hill. Poon is the ethnic group. There are so many ethnic groups in Nepal. Magar or (Poon) people are also one of them. The hill means little mountain. So Poon and Hill both are co-related each other. The Poon people or the Magar ethnic groups are inhabited on that bottom of the hill. So the big village of Magar (Poon) people live in the bottom of the hill that’s why it becomes Poon Hill. This is the best view point. The main thing is to go to Poon Hill early in the morning to enjoy the mountain and the sun rise. The mountains are pretty close from the Poon hill. The beautiful scenery and sun light on the mountains are amazing. After enjoying the mountain views and sunrise we have to back down to the hotel ,have breakfast then continue the trek.
