Majestic beauty of Ghorepani Poon Hill

I heard a lot about the beauty of Nepal from many of my friends. Luckily, last October, I got to experience heaven with my two friends. One of my friends has already come to Nepal and has trekked through Boundless Adventure, and we also chose the same company for our journey. We planned an extended vacation but had to leave as soon as possible due to some issues. Mr.Dambar helped us a lot while selecting our package. After lots of discussions and going through information about each trekking destination, we chose to go for the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek. The Ghorepani Poon Hill is the best for people like us with limited time. The trek was a perfect mixture of little adventure and nature’s beauty. The early sunrise view and its ray on the summit of the mountain still satisfy my mind—a most recommended trekking destination and trekking agency, Boundless Adventure.

Never to be-forgotten experience in the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek

Memories I have created during the trek to Ghorepani Poon Hill are the best of all I have made in my entire life. It was a mesmerizing experience and will always be in my heart forever. Every step on the journey was incredible, from the beautiful traditional valleys to towering mountain peaks. Diverse landscapes, including forests and meadows, were eye-pleasing. The reason for our smooth journey is that the Boundless Adventure team was with us. Boundless Adventure managed our logistics, from accommodations, food, permits, and everything necessary during our trek. Each part of the trek is memorable and commendable. However, the view from Poon Hill top was exceptional. I highly recommend the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek to anyone looking for a pleasant trek in the Annapurna region. Also, we are planning for the Annapurna Base Camp trek in the coming peak season, and we are sure to Choose Boundless Adventure as we are delighted by their service during our Ghorepani Poon Hill.
