6 Days Trekking of Poon Hill

6 Days Trekking of Poon Hill, My friends and I had such a good time trekking with these guys (our guide Salman and two porters Dev and Simrin) and the Trekking company Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. They are attentive, cheerful and very helpful. Salman suggested a change of route when we told him. So, we needed to change the itinerary since one of us had fallen sick and the change of route suited us better. And I couldn’t complain about the view, it was so breathtakingly amazing. I’m so happy we change the route to Ghandruk, and no regret at all not going to Jhinu.

Overall I’m happy with their service and would recommend to others, and Mr. Chandra is very quick at replying to an email.

A  journey through Poon Hill

A journey through to Poon Hill. This was my second time through Nepal with Chandra and his team at Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd. For this trip, Chandra curated an amazing tour of Nepal before I headed on my 6-day solo trek to Poon Hill.

The trip was completely organized from the accommodation to the travel arrangements, for a very reasonable price (By Nepal standards). He knew all the places to take my father, partner, and myself for a complete cultural tour of Nepal (Namo Buddha, Dhulikhel, Nagarkot, Chitwan, Pokhara, and Sarangkot). The guides (Dinesh and Ramesh) were very knowledgeable and also great company.

Due to a lack of time, I opted for the 6-day Poon Hill trek. Luckily it was the start of May so the Rhododendron flowers were still present making it a pleasant hike. Overall, the tea houses were as comfortable as could possibly be. And I never felt that I had to modify my pace on the hike to fit the guide’s needs.

I am very happy with Chandra, his team, and his friendship. We have developed through my visits and highly recommend his services.

Poon Hill – Chitwan – Bhutan

Poon Hill Chitwan Bhutan, Our original intention was the Manaslu circuit trek but due to surgery on the knee, it was necessary to reduce our plans. Mr. Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd.) offered us 8 days of trekking via Poon Hill and Chitwan jungle safari and 8 days trip to Tibet. After our arrival in Kathmandu, we have learned that Tibet is closed for the whole of October, so we promptly have reorganized a 5 days trip to Bhutan. With Chandra´s (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt. Ltd.) support we have had beautiful holidays. We trust that we will come to Nepal once more in order to undertake some mountain trek.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek

We had gone 6 Days Ghorepani Poonhill Trek in 2014 March. Because we had a really good trip, very well managed. Because hotels and restaurants were always good to address, good choices and people very friendly.

We loved the trek; the daily walk was adapted and a good choice of guest houses (with a view). So, we appreciated your care and attention; fruits, Choco Pie, etc. So, Teaching the Nepali Language along the Trek.

Thank you for your help in getting back my bag.

We can only recommend Himalaya Guide Nepal for your holidays in Himalayas Nepal.
Thanks, Chandra!

Manaslu Circuit & Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek

Manaslu And Poon Hill Trek, October 16 to 02. November 2017 Chandra (Himalaya Guide Nepal Pvt.Ltd.) has organized us Manaslu Circuit and the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek incl. Guide and porter. Everything worked smoothly. Because Chandra already arrived at the airport to pick me up in Kathmandu. In the evening there was a Nepalese “Welcome Dinner” with Chandra in the traditional dances. So, we found this very great! In our hotel, a preliminary took place, in which we again Chandra told all the necessary information for our trek. And our guide presented to us. All transfers by taxi, bus, and jeep were organized by Chandra and functioned smoothly.

During the trek, our guide and our porter took care of everything. They were very friendly and competent. The accommodations were always booked by our guide in advance. So, we could always equal the day’s destination in our “room”. There were in addition to three meals snacks, such as cookies or candy bars every night fresh fruit. We really enjoyed the trek and it was a fantastic experience. For us, the Manaslu Trek was the right choice because we were able to experience one of the least touristy developed areas with Tibetan influence. We highly recommend Chandra and his team; they do a very good job!
