This was our first trip with Nepal Wilderness Trekking, and we had a great time on this three-day Poon Hill trek! From the initial inquiry via email to the meetings with Mr Himal in Kathmandu, and the professional guidance provided by DB Basnet, we were met with good-natured hospitality and expertise. The team at Nepal Wilderness Trekking is also extremely helpful in coordinating arrangements surrounding the trek, in our case coordinating with the airlines to ensure timely arrival and departure from Pokhara, as well as helping us coordinate with hotel operators for the days following the trek.
The trek itself was a wonderful experience. It is possible to expect to see a variety of different environments and each one is enriching in its own way. As you trek through the countryside, jungle, and the Nepalese hills along the way, you will have amazing views of the Annapurna Mountain Range along the way. On the trek up to Poon Hill, our Guide DB had many friends and nearby prime locations for us to rest and recuperate and we always found comfort and hospitality wherever we stopped. Also, DB added a lot of value to the trek in terms of good conversation, where we learned a lot about the area, Nepal’s history and culture, and a general sense of humour that made every chat easier and fun.
As a result of this short trek, we are already thinking about plans for our next one and will definitely be contacting Nepal Wildnerness Trekking and DB Basnet when we are ready to embark on our next adventure!
