Annapurna 5-day trek to Poon Hill. Day 3: 10.8km, 330m up & 640m down. Todays destination is first Poon Hill, early morning Sunrise, and after breakfast to Tadapani, 10.7km, about a 6 hour day hike. The climb to Poonhill is a few hundred meters up, in the dark (at 5-5:30am); so bring a flashlight. Then you arrive in time to see the sunrise light up the main Annapurna & Dhaulagiri mountain range. That is, if you're lucky to have a clear day. After breakfast back in Ghorepani, the rest of the day begins with a gradual climb over a ridge -back to Poon hill height- after which you descend sometimes with steep stairs. The final stretch to Tadapani is down a valley and up another 130m climb in less then 1km. Tadapani offers a great view on Annapurna South and Fishtail mountain; you get a second chance next morning if you've missed the view at Poon Hill.

Most of the uphill is in the first third of this trail. Absolutely stunning scenery.
