Trekking Poon Hill in August (Monsoon Season)
I will be in Nepal towards the beginning of August with a couple of friends. We're planning to trek Poon Hill, since we're only there for a week. I'm guessing it will be raining a lot, and I have never hiked in the rain before, so I'm a little concerned. I have a few questions that can hopefully be answered.
1. Is it safe to trek Poon Hill in the monsoon season?
2. Does anyone have any tips or recommendations for clothes or hiking gear?
3. Can we rent sleeping bags or should we bring our own?
4. Are there a lot of insects (ie. leeches) on the trek?
Any sort of help or advice would be really helpful! Thank you!
