Poonhill Trek: a mesmerizing journey.

Posted Dec 23rd, 2012 under Trekking & Hiking, Trip Report,



Trial in the Dense Tropical Forest.

Ms. Johanne Kristen Andersen and Mr. Henrik Neils Zimmermann increased the visitors list from Denmark with our exclusive country partner Kipling Travel. The Boeing with Kristen and Henrik landed on the Nepalese Airfield on July 21. They toured around the prehistoric metropolitan Kathmandu on the arrival day and the following day. Their keenness in acknowledging the ancient culture and the civilization of the ancestors of the city was fulfilled to the mark.


Kaal Bhairav- Kathmandu.

The ancient inventive arts in the Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Lalitpur and Bhaktapur and spiritually valued temples and Monasteries like Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, Swayambhunath and Changunarayan provided them the sensation of picking the perfect holiday location. On 23rd they took the flight to Pokhara. Pokhara is a small tourist town 200km west to Kathmandu.

On July 25, they drove to Nayapul and instantly started their trek to Ulleri 2020m, a first view of Annapurna south. On July 26, the hike continued towards Ghorepani. Ghorepani 2874m, is a village within the Annapurna Conservation Area and it is the major trial linking to Annapurna Base Camp.
