Trekking to Poonhill

(5/5)

I went trekking to poonhill for 2 nights and 3 days.

It was first time for me to visit Nepal and to go trekking in foreign country.I worried about if I can walk among 3 days.

But there were many places where we could take a break. And also my guide Sanjay Chapagain was very kind to me. He has a wonderful hospitality.


He carried my big baggage. Thanks to him, I got a pleasant journey. I'd like to ask him for a guide next time.

I think I should reduce my baggage and have stock. Especially around Ghorepani and Poonhill,there is snow. In some places the road was frozen and it was dangerous.

Above all, It was a wonderful experience that I was able to actually see the mountains of Himalaya.
