The fifth day will be for the walk to Ghandruk Village and the sixth for retunring to Pokhara and the final or 7th day will be for returning Kathmandu. This is the way you spend all 7 days or a week long days for your Poonhill Trek.

     However, some people try to do Poon Hill Trek even in 3-4 days which will be very rush, but still can do. You can use the domestic flight to go to Pokhara from Kathmandu and then begin the trek on the same day. The next day, you will get to Ulleri and then to Poonhill and you can come back along the same trail back to Pokhara on the third or 4th day. This way also is possible if you relay want to do Poon Hill Trek. And fly back to Kathmandu on the same day and catch your international flight at night to homewards.

Along with Annapurna I, you can see Annapurna south, Annapurna II, Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchhre, Manaslu  and even Ganesh Himal. You can see only Machhapuchhre from Mardi Himal Base Camp and only Annapurna South from  Annapurna Base Camp but you can see entire Annapurna Himalayan range from Poon Hill so that Poon Hill Trek is considered better than Mardi Himal Trek and Annapurna Base Camp Trek. 

    Actually, it is not but if you want to end your trek via Poon Hill, you can do it. For this you have to make a prior request to include Poon Hill at end of the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

You can walk from Tatopani to Poon Hill and then end the trek at Birethanti or Nayapool.

    However, you don’t need to include Poon Hill as a part of Annapurna Circuit Trek. The Annapurna Circuit Trek begins from Besisahar and ends at Jomsom/Muktinath. But, some people love trekking to Poon Hill from Muktinath and  end the trek at Nayapool.
