This area, north of Pokhara, Ghorepani offers some of the most dramatic close-up views of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world. The abrupt variation in altitude found here is astonishing. From the Pokhara airstrip (850m) the summit of Machhapuchre (6,997m) is less than 20 miles away, with no obstructing ranges to spoil the view. In fact the views in the whole area are fabulous. Poon Hill, from where we can have a wonderful glance of the mid-western lined mountains has incredible latitudinal range, unusual geography and a pleasant climate making trekking in this area a real naturalist’s dream. The return trail follows one of the most important trading routes between India and Tibet. This is also a major pilgrimage route. We meet traders and both Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims during the trek. The Magars and Gurungs (backbone of the famous Gurkha regiments) are the main inhabitants of this region.

The incredible latitudinal range, unusual geographical and climatic mix makes the trekking in this area a real naturalist’s dream. In less than a week we move from the sub-tropical areas around Pokhara to high Tundra and the glaciers of the sanctuary.

The lower area of the range is inhabited by Gurungs and Magars, the sturdy Gurkhas by legend. Here, the home turf of these friendly smiling people that became the famous Gorkha regiments of the British and Indian armies can be experienced. Pokhara is the main trade center for the whole of this region where Gurungs and Newars live. The return trail follows one of the historical and most important trading routes between India and Tibet. This journey also forms a major pilgrimage route between India and Tibet.

Pokhara- Poon Hill- Jomsom- Muktinath, A fantastic Journey with Surya and Dream Discovery Treks

After exchanging a few e-mails with Surya from Switzerland, he arranged a perfect program for the 3 of us. Our friends in Switzerland were quite sceptic about the idea of trekking with 4 years old,” No problem!” was Surya’s attitude and he proved to be more than right.

Not only did he arrange perfect accommodation for us in Thamel before our arrival, but he also arranged trekking permit, bus and taxi transportation etc. when we were here and knew the best restaurants where food is safe.

Once we were in Pokhara, he knew some easy hikes to get adjust to the climate, Perfect also to experience Nepali ways of life off the beaten tourist trade.

His friendly and open way to communicate with people not only made way to make the best deals en route but he also opened our shy girl’s heart- which in turn meant for us that she was carried on his back rather than ours only. When Nicole twisted her ankle really badly, he not only gave her the necessary physical and emotional support, but also managed to arrange a pony ride down the valley. Not an easy task with only pony available in the village and its owner being ( drunk?) at the sports festival. Instead of the basic lodges, I had envisaged from home, we stayed at clean mountain hotels, often in the best room with a large bed and private bathroom. Surya never missed to point out special sights on the way and was able to explain about Hindu and Buddhist religion, local culture, customs and traditions but also about the current situation in Nepal in fluent English and accurate vocabulary
