Unexpectedly wonderful trekking Poonhill

Hillary Wong | Hong kong China

Rating: 5

My 1st time to trek in Nepal and I'm glad that we were going with Birendra and Sam. We planned to do ABC but not until we arrived Pohkara did we learned that ABC was closed because of heavy snow. After discussing with Birendra we decided to go for Poonhill, which turned out to be a great Experience.
We are two ladies, my friend is a full-marathon runner, and I didn't work out much for 4 months before setting off for trekking. But I'm glad that Birendra (our guide) and Sam (we call him Sam Sam, he's our porter who's also very experienced and kind) took care of both of us quite well. I highly recommended this company  because:
1, well prepared and well-experienced. We walked through a very snowy trail on the 2nd/ 3rd day to Poonhill, and he prepared crampons so we could walk on very slippery snow and ice.
2, flexible. We changed the route at the last minute he still managed very well.
3/, well organized. Every day he would brief us what we were doing, how long we would walk so that we had an idea.
4, Both of them took care of us quite well. Birendra tried to arrange rooms that fitted our needs, all the food and accommodation, WiFi, and he's a good photographer too. Sam is very kind and he would always wait for me and let me walk before him, so he could have an eye on me.
It's enjoyable to trek with them and we had a great time. Thank you both of them.

Greatest experience to trekking overseas

YUK TING LO | Hong kong China

Rating: 5

We visited Nepal for the Poonhill Trek and this was absolutely one of my greatest experiences for trekking overseas. I knew about Birendra, our trekking guide, from my friend as she highly recommended him for us, and Birendra never disappointed us on the whole trip! When planning for our trip, Birendra gave us a lot of suggestions regarding the duration and choice of places we could visit in Nepal. I was also really worried about the rainstorm in Nepal, but Birendra gave us confidence with his rich experience in trekking in Nepal, and I felt really safe throughout the days with him! Not to mention, he treated and respected the young porter really well, and even helped to carry some of my backpacks when I had difficulty during the treks. His knowledge about the mountains and Nepal history amazed us too, every night we would gather and learned about the routes for the next day. Birendra really impressed us as we did not the only trek but had an insightful trip!!! Superb!!

Our 5-day trek to Poonhill and Ghorepani was the trip of a lifetime. We fell in love with Nepal and will definitely back to trek Everest soon. Our guide Sambhu was fantastic and had a smile on his face all the time. We also had some fantastic Porter Sujan who I hope one day will become good guides. We couldn’t have done this trek without porters who helped carry our luggage all the way up to Nayapul. The highlight of the trip was the stunning Poonhill with Annapurna Dhaulagiri Snow-capped mountains. Thank you Mission Himalaya.

Without the internet, living is too difficult day by day. face to face connected with friends and family is the wish of adventure seekers. sharing the moments of trekking with your close friend or family is most important. here are some ways to get WiFi and the internet in Everest base camp trekking.
Wifi: 

No matter where you are in the Annapurna region the wifi of Tea houses always keeps you connected. All the major areas of the Annapurna region WIFI is available. Some places it will be free but some of the guest houses charge you $1 to $5 for one day 24 hour internet. But the internet not very fast enough. 

Mobile internet:

The Nepal Telecom and Ncell Mobile data can be work some part of Annapurna Region Trekking like Ulleri, Ghorepani, Tadapani, Ghandruk, and Chhomrong. But make sure that all parts of the Annapurna region cannot be the signal or poor signal mobile call and internet.

6, Best trekking and Visiting time in Nepal
 Nepal Trekking can be undertaken for the whole of the year. Mostly there are four seasons in Nepal. Each season has its different attraction to offer the tourist. Nepal trekking season is as follows:
Autumn season is defined as the best time for trekking in Nepal, which offers excellent weather and Clears Mountain views with blue sky. Moderate temperatures, clear sky with panoramic views, making it the best time to do any of Nepal trek. Occasional short storms may happen and snow at high altitudes.
Varieties of flowers, especially Rhododendrons make the hillside a paradise during this season. It is a mildly warm season at lower elevations and at the higher elevation, the mountain views are an excellent and similar season like autumn. Hence, this is the best time to visit Nepal.

7, Accommodation and shower
Poonhill is one of the popular trekking destinations of Nepal. For the accommodation of this trek in the city you can have budget or luxury hotels. but in trekking time most likely you can get either 2 soft twin bedroom. the toilet is outside sharing. some of the tea houses like Ulleri, Ghorepani, and Ghandruk you can get the room inside the toilet and hot shower. this hot shower sometime can be out of control because of solar and gas. But the toilet you can use. You can consult with your guide for your best accommodation. someplace you need to pay for a shower some tea houses are free. Most likely the shower is solar or from Gas.

8, Can I trek alone?

Conservation Area and national park you can trek solo but the restricted area are not allowed to trek solo. You must have a group by yourself or you can join with another group of the company. With our 2 people, it’s forbidden.

Many tourists around the world they trekking in Nepal solo for their benefit and flexibility. Nepal is the best place for alone trekking. But some of the remote parts please you have to care more. We suggest you to trek at least a guide or a porter even you can trek solo.  

9, Any risk in trekking?

AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness is the dead risk associated with trekking. even the trekking is sporty sport there are several kind of risk in it. Like heavy rainfall, heavy snowfall, Avalanche, earthquake, injury, vital flue and some other natural calamities. The main AMS means when you get the high altitude your body fails to adjust to change the pressure associated with altitude and this can be fatal.

11, Local Currency:

When you trekking Nepal many parts of trekking will accept US$ but Mission Himalaya treks and expeditions suggest you change Local currency. This currency can change either in the airport of Nepal Kathmandu or some money exchange of city. The exchange rate is lower in high altitude and sometimes they ignore to change too. so we suggest you to change in Kathmandu for your convenience and best exchange rates.

Normally the guide has first aid training. For normal sickness and treatment, he can help you. like Diarrhea, Vomiting, fever, headache, bleeding and some more. But in all the cases they are not doctors so they cannot help. but they can support you to bring the health post or hospital nearby. like Ghandruk, Lower Ghorepani and Ulleri there are Health post. In case if you need extra medical facilities you can go their office for your treatment.
