Traveler Reviews

    The Annupurna Poon Hill Trip is a lovely trek through the lower elevations of the Annupurna range of the Himalayas. Starting from Pokhara, a 90 minute drive in a taxi drops us off at the beginning of the trek and then goes up from there. My guide, Raj, was absolutely awesome and provided a lot of great information about the area during our trek over the several days that this trek takes place. The second day of the climb takes us to the small town of Ghorepani, and then an early climb the next morning to Poon Hill. I went on this trip in the 2nd year of the virus. According to my guide, the number of travelers was still way down from pre-pandemic years. So, in one way, it is a great time to travel since you will have most of the trails to yourself. The tea houses are also pretty empty. The negative side to this is that there are limited menu items and several places didn't have WiFi. There are a few recommendations I would make about this trip. The first is the ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara. I took the bus and regretted it about halfway there. While the distance is only 200 km, it took about 8 hours on the bus. If I were to do this again, I would have opted for a 30 minute flight. It costs more, but is so worth it. Second, make sure you bring toilet paper with you on the trek. The tea houses I stayed in during my trek didn't have any. So, bringing a roll of your own is a huge help. And speaking of bathrooms, most of the toilets along the route are not the western style sit-down toilets. Rather they are the hole in the grounds. So, make sure to use the bathroom before leaving the tea house since the next western-style toilet isn't until the next guest house, which could be a half day hike away. Finally, if you have time after the trek, spend an extra day in Pokhara. It is much more interesting than Kathmandu. Otherwise, the trek was wonderful and the folks at Himalayan Recreation did a great job in staying in touch, picking me up at the airport when I arrived in Nepal, and provided excellent service all the way through.

    We booked a tour on the Poon Hill Trek. The tour takes four days to walk, plus one day to get to Pokhara and one day to get back to Kathmandu. The transfers to Pokhara and back are included. We had an awesome guide (Santosh), who was always in a good mood, helpful and overall a great companion. We also had good luck and did the tour with only two persons, and the company manager told us that they always aim at keeping the groups quite small. I can only recommend doing the Poon Hill Trek with this company as they are very reliable and friendly. The Poon Hill Trek is perfect to get a first impression of trekking in Nepal as it offers nice views (especially on the third morning) and a beautiful path through nature. (Note however that it includes some stairs.) Overall a great experience!

    If you feel the need for a guide for your trekking experience in Nepal, make sure to go with this company. Due to a lack of time, a friend and I decided to go for the shortest circuit in the Annapurna region: the Poon Hill Trek. Our guide Santosh, an ever happy and supportive mountaineer, met with us a day prior to the trek and we got to know each other over a cup of tea. All questions and concerns were cleared out and we started the trek euphorically. The four days will remain in best memory not only due to the astonishing views on Poon Hill but to a large extent to the experienced guiding by Santosh, the comfortable accommodations in Pokhara, Ulleri, Ghorepani and Ghandruk and a flawless organization. Summing up, I can 100% recommend Himalayan Recreation!

    The Team were so attentive, thoughtful and personal in all manners of the trek from organization, physical trekking and yoga down time. Everything was made clear from the start and daily. I couldn’t have asked for a better trek!

    Me and my girlfriend was amazed by the nature of Nepal! Even though the city centre is quiet dusty, but trekking amount the Himalayan and woke up with a mountain view everyday is something we will never forget. We were with a guide called "Ashok", what a fantastic guide he is. He came in to check a day before we actual met, just to see our condition rather if we need a trekking stick and others gears to save us from buying one, the tea house he took us was good, good food there too, each night he managed to bargain us the best room in the tea house, so we can sleep in the ocean of stars and woke up amount the snow mountains with the view right at our window!!! On the way, other than the nature, he explained and shown us many traditions of the villagers too. We became good friends after, and it happened to be the Diwali festival, he even took us around for dinner and experienced the festival in his OWN TIME!!! We had a great time and never thanks enough for the experience! Nepal is a place to go once in a life time, at least!! Thanks a lot!!!

Bishnu thankyou for answering our many emails and organising our tour. We highly recommend travelling with Himalayan Recreation Treks and Expeditions.

    My friend and I just finished this tour with our wonderful tour guide Ashok. This was a great experience for us as we had limited time in the country and specific dates which we wanted to do this tour. Bishnu and Ashok organised this tour and adjusted this to our needs. On completion of this tour the company also organised a rafting trip to complete our adventures on Nepal. The tour itself was enthralling to see the stunning views and the countryside ( you can’t capture that beauty through the lense of a camera!), and our tour guide Ashok also guided us to the history of the different areas to give us a better understanding of what we were seeing. Ashok also encouraged our group to try the local delicacies... we were very unsure initially, but after being coaxed into it - we didn’t look back - food was fabulous!! Masala tea, fresh cucumber with chilli and salt, mo mo’s and the classic Dal baht - if you head to Nepal make sure you try all of these - from a little local restaurant as well! Thank you so much Bishnu, Ashok and the team who helped make our trip so easy and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who has limited time but loves outdoors and trekking 😊
