Involves trekking up to 6 hours a day upt 5400 meters for the duration of 9 -18 days . Any reasonably active person should be able to manage these trips.
Visit the beautiful hills over Pokhara and look at the beautiful massifs of western Himalayas. The villages we stop at during the trek are equally beautiful and rich in culture.
Poon Hill is a mountain of its own accord but is dwarfed in the presence of the Himalayan range. From the top of the hill, at an elevation of more than 10,000 feet, you can see the Annapurna massif together with adjacent peaks. The trekking circuit is dotted with traditional villages with ever-smiling locals and in between villages you have to walk past forests, gorges, and rivers.
We will be there to receive you at the airport as you land into Kathmandu (4,600 feet) and take you to your hotel.
We ride to the famous tourist town of Pokhara in a tourist bus. It is a seven hour trip through serpentine roads carved into the hills with stops for lunch and snacks in villages along the way. At Pokhara, the lakeside area offers an amazing nightlife to relax you ahead of your trekking trip.
It takes less than 45 minutes in a car to reach Nayapool village. The trekking routes around Mount Annapurna begins here. We will start by a hiking up to Ulleri. It takes about five hours to get here and we have to pass through several villages and streams.
It again takes five to six hours to trek to Ghorepani village. We make our way uphill through forests and you will surely be in a lot of pain after this day. Poon Hill lies in the village and we trek its summit. The view of the Himalayas will be there to comfort you.
The Himalayas will accompany you (from a distance) throughout the way to Tadhapani as we pass through forests and streams. It takes five hours to get here but the clear view of the majestic mountains from Tadhapani makes the tough trek worth the effort.
Five hours of walking downhill brings us to Syauli Bazaar. Our long and exhausting trek ends here. Villagers here say that the local homemade wine can cure your exhaustion.
We drive to Pokhara and go for sightseeing. Pokhara is the most beautiful city in Nepal and that is why tourists from all around the world come here.
We will leave for Kathmandu in the morning passing through the same towns and villages that greeted us when we had first arrived a week ago.There is a complimentary farewell dinner in the evening to officially end your trip.
We will drop you to the airport. Return home amusing yourself with memories of beautiful Himalayas and the Himalayan villages.

As one of the core guiding principles for Mountain Kick, we always give back to the mountain community in any way we can as a means of gratitude. The people who live in the Himalayas and share their homes with us deserve to have all their little problems fixed which seem very basic for outsiders but are commonplace in rural Nepal. The people lack proper access to healthcare, sanitation and education but a little effort from travellers goes on a long way to solve these issues. Mountain Kick has made it its corporate social responsibility to help improve the living standards of the local community. We make donations to their cause, organize social campaigns and programs and also have a few trips designed to mix a little volunteer work in your holiday.READ MORE ABOUT CSR
