    Fly or drive is your choice. If you choose to drive then the first leg of this adventure is a 6 to 8 hour bus ride from Kathmandu to P8-hour, where you’ll spend the night before starting the trek the following morning. Pokhara is a scenic town at the base of the Annapurna Range and you should catch your first views in the evening.

    The next morning, after an early breakfast, we drive towards Nayapul village the starting point of our trek. It will take about 45 minutes by private car to reach Nayapul and the Mt Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) will always look down on us. After you reach in Nayapul, then we can officially begin our trek towards Ulleri. Heading through beautiful scenic surroundings, forest trails and ascending stone steps that lead us next to Mani walls and vegetation. Around 4 hours trek lets you witness the small Gurung settlements and beautiful forests of rhododendrons and finally, we reach in Ulleri village where we stay for the night.

      Poon hill - Sunrise

      “I recently completed the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek with Mountain Treks Nepal and Milan as my guide. Mountain Treks Nepal did a fantastic job of organizing the entire trip. Everything was well-coordinated, from airport transfers to comfortable accommodation in the teahouses. Milan was an exceptional guide. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the region and always happy to answer our questions. His friendly personality and encouraging spirit made the trek even more enjoyable. The sunrise from Poon Hill was truly breathtaking, and the entire experience was unforgettable. I would highly recommend Mountain Treks Nepal and Milan to anyone considering the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek.”

      great Company

      We had the best excursion with mountain treks Nepal and our guide Deepak . Great at English and great at perusing his costumers and their needs!

      We had a multi day trek around Poon Hill, Ghorepani and Tadapani. Excellent perspectives around the Himalaya Mountains.

      This is the second time we utilize this organization and indeed we had such a decent time and I would pick this organization for our next outing in Nepal.

      Homely and Awesome Trekking

      In 2014 winter, with the great support of a gentle guide man, Mr. Bharat
      I could spend a fabulous 5 days.

      My venture was mainly Pokhara city and Annapurna Trekking.

      In Pokhara, we walked and floated around a big lake (What’s a breathtaking view !!)
      and he took me to the some nice Nepalese dining. All of them was homely and really touched in my heart (not spicy)…
      For example, “Pokhara Kitchen” was awesome ! I will never forget that feeling.

      In Annapurna Trekking, I climbed up till 3,000km level (not so much hard),
      Trekked around at the High ground, stayed at the nice cottage over 2night.
      Pure Blue Sky, Mountains covered with sunrise Red, brilliant White stars in the night sky,
      warm Yellow yelling of Buffalo and Chicken met on the way, fresh Green of grass and trees…
      all these things made me so excited during my venture.

      All thanks to Mr. Bharat’s effort, I experienced entirely these excitement and deep emotion in my solo trip.
      He has excellent English Skill and knows well some Japanese and Chinese Joke also.
      and he has Hospitality mind. “your feet OK ?”, “you need rest somewhere ?” he always took care of me.
      Someday, I would really like to trekk with him again.

      So, if you feel like to trekking in Nepal, why don’t you head to “Mountain Treck Nepal” ?
