Poon Hill Trek
One of the most popular and shorter treks in the Annapurna region is called Poonhill Trek. It is a great introduction to trekking because of diffrent land scape, mixed culture and suitable for experts to beginners and varied ages, from young to mature. Along the way, one can enjoy the scenic grandeur of the mountains, the terraced hillsides stepping down to valleys rib bones with flowing streams and cascading waterfalls.
The Poon Hill Trek will take one through several villages where you can enjoy experiencing the rich culture of the Gurungs and Magars people. Traveling through the magnificent ancient rhododendron trees with red and pink blossoms will make one believe they are journeying into an enchanted forest. The ultimate thrill will be reaching your destination of Poon Hill, especially at sunrise when one can see the sun come up over the towering peaks of Dhaulagiri (8167m world’s 7th highest mt.) and Annapurna 1 (8091m 10th highest mt.). The spectacle from Poon Hill is both breathtaking and inspiring.

Upper Mustang 4WD Jeep Adventure
Upper Mustang Trek is in an area that is restricted to only a small amount of tourists each year. It was closed to foreigners until 1992 to protect the local traditions and it still has certain restrictions in place today. This makes it the perfect place for those wanting to get off the beaten path and explore a mysterious and ancient land, where very few have been before. Upper Mustang trek is one of the popular trekking destination in the Annapurna region.
This city is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Nepal, but has a language and a people more engrained in Tibetan traditions. Along the route we will have the chance to explore the local villages and to begin to understand the ancient traditions of the Mustang region. In this Jeep Adventure, we will also see the unique beauty of the region, quite different to other areas of Nepal, with its high, desert like plains.
