“That was back in 2011 and my first trekking experience. Together with my friends and our dear guide Chris Chhetri we reached Poon Hill (3 210 m). Since it was my first time in mountains, it was great to face challenges with the guide who knows every step of the trek and motivates you to see more here. Our reward - amazing beauty of Himalayas!
