Our 5 days Poon Hill Trek is suitable for anyone of reasonable fitness, including children. The highest point on Poon Hill is just 3,210m/10,532ft and so there is no little chance of being affected by altitude sickness.

This Annapurna short trek begins with the 25 min short Himalayan flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara and a 1½ hr drive to Nayapul (trail foot). This Poon Hill Trekking circular route, through farmland and rhododendron forest takes two days to reach Poon Hill. You will be greeted by local culture, tradition, custom and warm welcome. 

A pre-dawn walk up Poon Hill is rewarded with magnificent sunrise views of the huge Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges to the north and lowland hills to the south. Our trail then leads eastwards, following ridges to Tadapani with plenty of snow-peak views including the iconic Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail, 6,997m/22,957ft). Encounter unique local cultures and customs along the way. The down-trail to Ghandruk, a large stone roofed settlement offer perfect Lunch spot and another an hour short walk brings you to trail head (Ghandruk Phedi). About 2 ½ hrs off road drive following  Modi Khola (Modi River) that rises from the glaciers in the Annapurna Sanctuary, brings back you Lake city Pokhara by the afternoon.

Annapurna Circuit Trek, October/November 2013

We, Kari and Dag Kavlie from Norway, are now back from a fantastic trek of the Annapurna Circuit. We are both retired persons that love trekking and this is our first visit to Nepal.

We spent 17 days for the trek and walked all the way. Badri panta was our guide and Ram our porter. They did a wonderful job to make the trek an excellent experience. This also includes finding nice overnight accommodation and good food. We experienced a very good contact with the local people with help from Badri. The nature was just fantastic. Dolakh Thapa key person and adventure consultant of Mountain Mart Trek gave us good program adaption to the altitude so we experienced no problems with height even at the Thorong La pass at 5416 meter. We will strongly recommend Mountain Mart Trek and Badri as a guide.

They gave us very good service both with good information before and during our stay in Nepal and solved any questions that came up during the trek.

Manaslu Tsum valley Trek 2013

What a beautiful trekking, again! This was the third time we did a trekking with Dolakh’s agency (Mountain Mart Treks) and it was again a great experience. The Manaslu route is highly recommended for wild nature, animal life (lots of monkeys, longurs!) remote areas and impressive mountain views. In Lho and Samagaon you can get a clear view of Manaslu and also on the Larkya La you have an astonishing view on the surrounding mountains, and the pass isn’t that difficult. There are plenty of villages along the route, so you can make the days as short or long as you like.

You really should go to Tsum Valley if you go to Manaslu. In Tsum Valley you can get a good impression of the everyday life of the Tibetan villagers via homestay. The people are very friendly and western civilization hasn’t spoiled the area yet. You can experience the real Buddhist culture in the many gompa’s on the way. We saw very few tourists, what we think of as something positive.

Mountain Mart is a reliable agency, which provides real good service. Dolakh and Prem are friendly and trustworthy and we always have lots of fun with them and the porters on the way. And, not quite unimportant if you go on a camping trekking, the food is always delicious!
