Hung Wei , California, USA

I did the Ghorepani Poon Hill Trek with my friend in Nepal and our adventure of trekking was the most thrilling experience! I and my friend had wanted to come on this holiday for the longest of time and we had decided to go ahead with the trek with Nepal Hiking Team and it was most inspiring! The Annapurna Region is a wonderful place in Nepal for trekking and the views of the mountains from Poon Hill and from Ghorepani were sublime! It was the most relaxing trekking journey and we utterly enjoyed it to the fullest. The accommodations at the trek with the guesthouses and the lodges were comfortable, and I think for us, the absolutely best part of the whole trek was watching the sunrise and the sunset from vantage point at Poon Hill. Our guide had said that the scene of the sun rising and sun setting from behind the mountain was the one not to be missed and it proved to be the best scenes of our entire lives. Watching the sun’s rays slowly spread across the snow of the mountains, it was divine! I am so glad that I have the image of that beautiful scene in my mind now, and to experience it firsthand from the vantage point, that was the most beautiful and angelic sights I had ever witnessed. The trek was wonderful; the people from Nepal Hiking Team who helped us along our trekking journey and made everything easy were very helpful and friendly. Both I and my friend who did the trek with me are very happy with how everything turned out and I recommend Nepal Hiking Team definitely!
