Poon Hill Conqueror by Ryszard Wierzbicki

The Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek is a circuit in the lower part of the Annapurna Range. The highlight is reaching the summit viewpoint of Poon Hill itself at sunrise and seeing the panoramic views of the famous Annapurna region including Annapurna South, Annapurna I, Annapurna II, III, and IV, Dhaulagiri, Lamjung Himal, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhare, and Manaslu. We took this trek together with my friends from Poland, Germany, and Thailand. I was giving the engagement ring to my ex-girlfriend on the top of Poon Hill. Kuba, from Germany, was the first one who reached the 3210 m viewpoint and had seen the sunrise.
