We decided Poon hill trek in November which offer the amazing beauty of nature. This is peak season and trekking trail became overcrowded. However, we enjoy the walk with many more beautiful friend from all over the world. We choose short and easy trekking trail and Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks recommends us Poon Hill trek, which was a really amazing journey with beautiful friends.
Our Guide and porter are very helpful and cooperative. They provide more information about trekking trail and Nepal. We had an opportunity to experience different ethnic culture and lifestyle. The guide was very funny and makes our journey comedy and full of laughter. So, we recommend Poon hill 5 days trek in autumn season in Nepal more adventurous and exciting.

The trip was well planned while starting a journey from Kathmandu to the end of our trip to Nepal. Mr. Thakur helps us to organize all the accommodation in Kathmandu and Pokhara.

I was extremely happy to organize a trip with Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks. The company executive director Ramhari was very much responsible, flexible and professional. He is picked up from the airport/drop to the hotel and manages city tour guide as well as a trekking guide and necessary permit for the trip.

Bikash is our guide, he was very much funny and well experience about Nepali culture, lifestyle of people and mountain region. Poon Hill 5 days trek was a fantastic trip for us by the help of our guide as well as our porter kindness.
All the days of our trek, the weather was really supper and 360 Mountain View from Poonhill, it was spectacular. We had to pass through the pleasant blooming Rhododendron forest. I felt we are in paradise because of the blending the beauty of nature and crystal clear mountains. On the way, we face some of the difficulty but it doesn’t matter for us because of the astonishing view of nature. We get some knowledge from the typical Nepali tradition village and their culture. It was a great chance for us. So I would like to share an amazing trip (Poon Hill Trek - 5 Days) with whom who are really interested to do adventure in Nepal. Adventure Alpine Gorkha treks will be the best trekking company in Nepal. Thanks for your great support to us!!!

I and my wife booked Poon hill trek 5 days package with Adventure Alpine Gorkha treks, it was a great time in Nepal.
For beginners like us, the trek will be perfect because of the short and easy trekking trail. But our guide Mr. Ram takes care of us very carefully and to encourage the trip to complete comfortably and adventurously. Our guide is experienced and professional, he always informs our day to day plan. He provides all the information about the Himalayan region in Nepal. We are able to enjoy the trip with the full support of our trekking guide and porter along the whole trip. I walk slowly but my guide would not leave behind and walk together. He was so funny and always makes some fun while on a trip. We had an amazing time exploring the beauty of nature and the Himalayan range. During the trek, we had panoramic views of Mt Annapurna and Dhaulagiri range with many more mountains from the Poon hill. The guide arranges lovely accommodation and food along the trek.
All these memories make me want to trek in Nepal next time and have an enjoyable trip with Ram. So I defiantly recommend Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks if you want to travel in Nepal.

Adventure Alpine Gorkha Treks offers such an amazing trip start to at the end of our trekking and tour in Nepal. The company provides a lot of question-answer clearly and promptly. They provide experienced guides and helpful porter service. Binaya was a very kind and funny trekking guide. He has more knowledge about the Himalayan region in Nepal. We had an amazing opportunity to experience the local culture and lifestyle along the trek. However, it was a fantastic trip with Mr. Ramhari's trekking team was highly recommended.

In October 2019, our friend's team went poon hill trek with Adventure Alpine Gorkha treks. It was my first adventure in Nepal with them Mr. Ramhari was leading our Poon hill trip. He is more knowledgeable and experienced trekking guide provide the best experience in Nepal. Poon hill is the perfect excursion for those who are looking short and easy trekking trail in Nepal. You will never forget to walk through Rhododendron's pleasant forest; we enjoy the stunning views of Annapurna mountain range surrounding the trek. We had fantastic sunrise views of the Himalayan range from a different vantage point along the trek. If you are thinking about Nepal's trek, do it but well-prepared trekking gears and equipment as per trekking season and duration. However, Mr. Ramhari will help us to prepare a trekking trip with all the necessary information. So highly recommend this trekking company in Nepal, they are kind, helpful and professional trekking team.
