    I highly recommend the Ghorepani poon hill 4 days trek. In such a less time we went to one of the top destinations of Nepal and had the glance of most wonderful golden Himalayas from the viewpoint. The difficulty level of Ghorepani poon hill is very less than any other treks in this region. I, being a person with normal physical fitness could easily accomplish this trek. I will try greater treks in the future as this trek has built up the confidence level in me. All was possible due to Nepal Trek Adventure team. I thought the trek would be difficult but they convinced me and encouraged that I can easily fulfill the trek. They also took care of me throughout the journey and made sure I was comfortable. I highly appreciate your effort in this trip.

    Nepal is blessed to have such unique beauty. After going for the Annapurna base camp trek, having the closest view of mountains, I also wanted to get the best distant view as well. Both the views were equally mesmerizing and eye-catching. Nepal left us speechless by its natural mountainous beauty. Ghorepani poon hill trek is a short and easy trek but still gives the perfect satisfaction to the travelers. I can recommend this trek for every nature and mountain-loving people.

    NTA is a very professional agency managing everything very fast and smoothly. I could not believe that within a day they managed everything related to the trek and provided a well-experienced guide to make the trek beautiful and informative as well. All the 4 days I spent on this was amazing. The local villages, the waterfalls, the suspension bridges and terrace farming on the way to Ghorepani were awesome and then the most gorgeous part of the trip was the golden sunshine. It released all my stress and relaxed me with positive energy inside me. The hospitality of NTA was very good which made an excellent trek.

    Due to lack of time, I could not go for a deep exploration of Annapurna but Ghorepani Poonhill 4 days trek was also not less adventurous. In 4 days I could go for a trek to the Annapurna region and view the beautiful panoramic landscapes and Himalayas. The views were great from the poon hill viewpoint. Early morning, we could get the sight of most beautiful shades of Himalayas. It seemed like the mountains were giving a warm welcoming smile that just melted our heart. The trip was very successful. Though I could not go for deep exploration, I will make it next time with Nepal Trek Adventures. I will surely contact NTA again and again. The hospitality of NTA was more than awesome. Their enthusiasm and encouraging behavior would attract any traveler.

The trail gets busier in the spring and autumn time however monsoon and winter is somewhat calmer.
