What people are saying about Pokhara

I gave 5-stars to support our guide who was amazing and extremely accommodating. That being said, I do not feel that this tour was listed accurately as a beginner tour with the expectation of climbing up multiple mountains and over three hours of ascent. That being said there were Nepali elderly and children on our trek so I understand why there might have been confusion. This tour, coming from someone who is newer to hiking and lives at sea-level, was advanced and as such, we had to end our trip a full day early as we physically could not proceed further in a reasonably safe manner. Our guide was extremely helpful in helping us return to Pokhara due to these limitations a day ahead of schedule.

Great experience! Mohor was our guide and he really took care of us the entire trip. The hike was achievable for beginner hikers. Amazing view at Poon hill, great food along the way and great hike. Recommend for anyone who just wants a short hike and has limited time.

Padam was my guide during this trip. He was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about any questions I had. The accomodation is lovely and Poon Hill is definitely an amazing short trek to see whilst in Pokhara! Worth the experience :)

Very kind guide who was helping us with everything, beautiful place to hike
