Narayan Baniya (nature pathfinder) and Sumir Gyawali (yoga teacher) guide me in
this adventure. Actually they manage perfectly my short time and all the noisy
burocratic thinks like documents or Covid control. They makes me feel safely and
had care of me since the moment I reserved .. now I’m at home and still feel the
power of their experience, friendship and good nature. They makes me “enter” in
the Nepali lifestyle, from metropolitan Kathmandu until the top of the mountain
were the vibes are soo deep. Their good vibes are compatible with all, Sumir had a
clinical yogi eye and Narayan the calm you need to arrive over the clouds.. it was
like a day dreaming and I never forget this experience out of time. Thank you
A great & well organised experience. I highly recommend Himalayan
recreation to anyone planning to trek to the Annapurna Basecamp. Everything from
start to finish was all taken care of, taking away all of the stress of
organisation so that I could focus on enjoying the trek.
Ashok was very responsive on whatsapp at all times and was able to adapt the tour
when circumstances changed. For example, when my flight to Pokhara was cancelled,
Ashok arranged for a friendly driver to take me all the way there by private car
instead (I did have to wait 1.5 hours for the driver, but traffic in Kathmandu is
difficult). My guide Santosh and porter Bal were very friendly and accommodating
and were good company during the trek. They have the English skills required to
answer the majority of questions, particularly relating to the trek. Overall, a
very good experience.
The trek itself is very beautiful. It has everything, including rural villages
with rice terraces, bamboo forests, and epic mountains. The accommodation is basic
but everything you need for a trek (much better than camping). The weather
forecast is inaccurate - I enjoyed decent weather despite the forecast being
constant rain/thunder. I found the difficulty to be much easier than others state,
and could have completed the trek in 5-6 days. Almost anyone with a decent level
of fitness would be able to complete this trek (adjusting the duration to
The Annupurna Poon Hill Trip is a lovely trek through the lower elevations of the
Annupurna range of the Himalayas. Starting from Pokhara, a 90 minute drive in a
taxi drops us off at the beginning of the trek and then goes up from there. My
guide, Raj, was absolutely awesome and provided a lot of great information about
the area during our trek over the several days that this trek takes place. The
second day of the climb takes us to the small town of Ghorepani, and then an early
climb the next morning to Poon Hill.
I went on this trip in the 2nd year of the virus. According to my guide, the
number of travelers was still way down from pre-pandemic years. So, in one way, it
is a great time to travel since you will have most of the trails to yourself. The
tea houses are also pretty empty. The negative side to this is that there are
limited menu items and several places didn't have WiFi.
There are a few recommendations I would make about this trip. The first is the
ride from Kathmandu to Pokhara. I took the bus and regretted it about halfway
there. While the distance is only 200 km, it took about 8 hours on the bus. If I
were to do this again, I would have opted for a 30 minute flight. It costs more,
but is so worth it.
Second, make sure you bring toilet paper with you on the trek. The tea houses I
stayed in during my trek didn't have any. So, bringing a roll of your own is a
huge help. And speaking of bathrooms, most of the toilets along the route are not
the western style sit-down toilets. Rather they are the hole in the grounds. So,
make sure to use the bathroom before leaving the tea house since the next
western-style toilet isn't until the next guest house, which could be a half day
Finally, if you have time after the trek, spend an extra day in Pokhara. It is
much more interesting than Kathmandu.
Otherwise, the trek was wonderful and the folks at Himalayan Recreation did a
great job in staying in touch, picking me up at the airport when I arrived in
Nepal, and provided excellent service all the way through.
This trip was the first we took with those guys. It was very nice, guide was
interesting and gave us a lot information about Bhaktapur and Nepal itself.
After they arranged few more trips for us. First was Chitwan national park and
jeep safari. After Pokhara and paragliding. And then return to Kathmandu. It was
very helpful to have someone local there who can arrange flights, pick ups, all
the activities and return wherever needed.
We didn't have more time, but all the time we had, they managed to organize for
us, without stressing or worrying.
I truly recommend them, because they are very responsible and helpful for any
situation. I firstly met them in Kathmandu for our first trip and they helped us
with all the others.
