The price includes: All meals (breakfast/lunch/dinner with tea/coffee), accommodation in teahouses, a guide, porter, sleeping bag, down jackets, transportation by car or jeep, entry permits, Trekking Permit, air tickets Pokhara-Kathmandu return, necessities for our guide and porter (their meals, accommodation in tea houses, equipment, insurance etc)

Your peace and wellbeing are of the highest importance. All our trips are led by a trained guide. We ensure your comfort and safety as we take you where you want to go. Prior to your trek, we send you information relevant to your health, the locale, climate, food, and what to bring. Relax - you will trek to high altitudes with guides trained in mountain safety and first aid. We design our treks to ensure that you acclimatize, and we arrange alternative itineraries for those at risk.

We make every effort to follow this itinerary, but as this is an adventure in a remote mountain region, we cannot guarantee it. Weather conditions, river conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns and the health of group members can contribute to changes. We try to ensure that each trip runs according to plan; and your easygoing attitude is our greatest asset!

Ghorepani - Poon Hill 7-day Trek

Ghorepani - Poon Hill Trek is a wonderful trek into the Annapurna region. Your trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests and past icy waterfalls. You get many tantalizing views of the high Himalaya mountains, and find whole horizons open to you on the trek's high points.

The Annapurna region and Poon Hill offer some of the best trekking in Nepal. Enjoy walking through spectacular mountain scenery - through charming Nepalese villages, dense rhododendron forests full of birds and sub-tropical valleys, below the Annapurna mountains where picturesque Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominates the skyline. (The reality of Poon Hill is overwhelming - better than any picture). This trek can be made all year, even in winter when higher treks are impossible.

We climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain-scapes on Earth.

Peak Experience: As the rising sun touches the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Annapurna (8,091m) and other mountains slowly manifest out of the dark, like magic before your eyes. Don't miss this.

If you enjoy nature, mountains and beautiful landscapes, you will enjoy this rewarding
and relatively easy trek. We can arrange longer and more demanding treks to your taste.
