Means of Transport

Tourist bus or private vehicle and walking. All the cost is already included unless otherwise noted.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is a must when you travel abroad. Therefore before you come to Nepal, please make sure you have your insurance documents with you since our insurance companies cannot insure foreign nationals. Because of the reason that they cover all the expenses if you face some unfortunate happenings and you have to be rescued or medically assisted during the trip or if your belongings are lost or stolen.

Solo Travellers

We have arranged for a single traveler to pay for a single trip only. He has to share the accommodation with other people of the same gender though while he can also join the other groups.

Foods and Accommodations

All meals are provided during the trek while only breakfast will be available in Kathmandu and Pokhara. Generally, traditional Nepalese(daal, Bhat, curry, and pickle), Tibetan, Continental, Indian and other cuisines are available in the local lodges/teahouses. There will also be a welcome and farewell dinner for guests in Kathmandu. In Kathmandu, you'll be staying in the best quality standard hotel, on a twin-sharing basis. On trekking, accommodations are simple yet comfortable on-mountain lodges. Toilets and bathrooms need to be shared in some teahouses.
Note: Single room is always available but only on special requests and spending extra bucks.

Health and Fitness Required

No previous experience is required since it's a moderate trek. But you being a healthy person, physically and mentally is very important. It is better if we prepare ourselves a few days/weeks prior to the start of the trek by jogging and running regularly since will be walking a lot of ups and downs in the hills, ridges, villages, and mountains. Participants with pre-existing medical conditions should inform us beforehand.

First Aid Kit/High Altitude Sickness

Nepal Adventure Team strongly suggests that you have your own personal first aid or medical kit. This trip takes you to some high altitudes though not much but the slow walks and regular stops between the walks will help you acclimatize to high altitude saving you from the high altitude sickness called AMS(acute mountain sickness). Gaining altitude without proper consideration of AMS is fatal.

Your Guide and Porter

Since mountain trekking takes you to remote places over high altitudes, the leader should have a piece of significant knowledge in the field so that he can wonderfully and safely lead you there clearing any obstacles on the way. We, Nepal Adventure Team can proudly say that our guides are highly qualified for the role. They are fully trained, experienced, and licensed. They have undergone a whole lot of training to make themselves useful in various situations and to make your journey a smooth and pleasant one.
Our porters are always fully equipped with the gears they need and as per the company policy, they are always insured and completely looked after. They are our backbone. We allow a maximum weight of 25kg to be carried by one porter. We make sure that they are well-paid and well-treated.

Best Time to Travel

The best time for trekking the 10 days Poon hill trek is Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November) because the weather is warm and moderate while the view and visibility are the best. The winter is also somehow fine but the monsoon is the less frequented time because of the occasional heavy rain and when the roads might be troublesome.

Precautionary Note:

Trekking has been long established in Nepal, so the itineraries are modified and moderated in such a way that you can take it easy and slow. DO NOT RUSH AND ENJOY. There is plenty of time and the guide will keep track of you all the time. It might be a bit harder or a bit colder but you will get used to it.

Additional Money

Every traveler is different and they spend their own way. Some spend on food and drinks while others on souvenirs. Either way, consider your own spending habits and also tipping, emergency fund ($200), etc before you pack up and leave.

Trip Specific Safety

Your guide is always there for your safety concerns and looking after your valuables. But you have to be equally careful. Carry some sort of wallet or belt for your important documents and money. The hotels have a safety deposit box where the lock is recommended before passing the luggage.

A Couple of Rules

Possession or use of any illegal drugs is totally intolerable. It is because of the law that respects the local people and their culture. The group will be expelled in such a case.

Responsible Tourism

Nepal Adventure Team strongly believes that we all are equally responsible to act in favor of the local people and the surrounding environment. Our clients too have an important role to

  • Respect the local laws, customs, and beliefs
  • Always ask for permission before doing something locally or consult the leader
  • Keep the area the same as you found it, wherever you go, and dispose of rubbish
  • Support local skills to encourage positive sides of tourism.

Feedback and Reviews

This is very very important for us. After your travel, we want your feedback whether it is good or bad since that's the way we can thrive further. To motivate you to finish the review or feedback online, we are going to give you an 8% discount on your next trip with us. Outstanding, ain't it?

    Wow Spectacular mountain View and Rhododendron Flowers

    My past experience of traveling to Chitwan with my previous travel agency was not very good, so this time I was very choosy in picking my travel agency. After searching the net, I came across Nepal Adventure Team. This was one of the best decisions I made. The Ghorepani Poon hill trek was one of the most beautiful trails I have walked on. The trek seemed even better with the service of the Nepal Adventure Team. My friends and I got to stay at a hotel in Ghorepani which was adjacent to the Annapurna Range. This was the most beautiful thing ever! The hike to Poon hill got us close to the clouds! It is one of the most beautiful things one can ever see. Thank you Nepal Adventure Team for making our Ghorepani Poon hill hike so memorable and fun.

    Trek from Nayapul to Poon Hill

    Several years ago, in April I traveled by myself to Nepal. During my visit, I hired Jeevan to be my guide on a short 5-day trek from Nayapul to Poon Hill and return over Deurali Pass, Tadapani and Ghandruk. This trek and my visit to Nepal stands as one of the best travel experiences I've ever had. My wife has never been to Nepal and I've always wanted to take her there. We are both now in our 60s and the Poon Hill trek seems perfect for us. Since I've maintained a Facebook friendship with my guide, I was able to ask Jeevan if he would be my guide again. He said yes. I can highly recommend Nepal Adventure Team for your Nepal adventure.
