“Our guide for this trek, Manish, was very friendly, personable, and knowledgeable about trekking. He offered us an alternative route - to see Mohare Dansa - which would've been more eco-tourism focused, with homestays, villages, and a less populated trail. But because my friend and I didn't know much about it, we opted for the original Poon Hill trek, which was still great. (Next time, I would consider the other option, though). Despite being the easiest trek, it was still quite intense with a lot of stairs, up and down. (Day 2 is mostly just upstairs!!) But the good thing is there are lots of tea houses along the way for you to take breaks.

We went in March and the climates vary a lot: 70's and strong sun at lower altitudes to 0 Celsius at the top of Poon Hill. The company allows you to rent a puffer jacket and sleeping bag, and for everything else (backpack, towel, gloves, etc.) you can buy in Kathmandu. For lodging, we stayed in some nice lodges with cots and blankets; you can purchase wifi for 100 rupees (about 1 USD) and fill up water (1L bottles usually 100 rupees).

Some highlights were the walk down from Poon Hill (Day 3) after sunrise and Gandhruk - we stayed in a cute lodge called Hotel Asish Aama with the cutest host and best homecooked dal bhat. Some things I'd recommend packing: synthetic or wool clothes, thick/wool socks, quick-dry towel, cap/hat for the sun, hand warmers, and joint care pills (like omega-3).”
Amazing experience for beginner trekker
