“My EverestTrip Nepal Private Day Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Jennifer (from Sweden)
Being a great fan of Nepal, I travelled with Puru on Mount Everest Basecamp trek a while back in 2009. It was thoroughly well organized and Puru was exceptional in his service and always made sure that we were safe, comfortable and well motivated (which is sometimes needed!). What I very much appreciated was his style in guiding. I was travelling with my partner and he respected that we needed our space but was always close by should we need anything. I can highly recommend Puru for anybody going on a trek in Nepal. Just book your flights to Kathmandu and he will make sure to arrange the rest. Regards, Jennifer (from Sweden)

“Annapurna Circuit - I Nearly Didn't Come Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

21 days of walking the Annapurna Circuit by ignoring all the advice about walking in the monsoon. We had the place to ourselves, including crossing Thorung La where we spent a delightful hour in our own company. In the peak season trekkers start arriving at 0400 and there can be as many as 300-400 people up there. And of course it meant we had each village community to ourselves as we went. Did we get wet? On the first few days, sure. But thereafter the rain was a non issue. Well, it really wasn't an issue for us in the early days of the trek. The weather is warm and the rain just added to the sense of adventure. Favourite stop was Kagbeni, a medieval village to which I could be tempted to retire! I sure as heck am planning on going back there. Soon.
Get fit before you go. Be mentally tough. it's not difficult but nor is it east. Don't take it for granted or you won't enjoy it. Above all apply good altitude acclimatisation discipline and you will have a blast.
And despite the critics and naysayers, we got spectacular views each day before the monsoon weather drifted in.

“ABC Poon Hill Trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

We had an unforgettable five-day trek to Poon Hill and back around the Annapurna region, rigorous enough to be exciting and filled with absolutely breathtaking views, without being too challenging for beginners like we were. Puru's an excellent guide -- professional, extremely knowledgeable and dependable. Highly recommend the Poon Hill trek for beginners looking for a bit of steep climbing, rain forestry and of course views, and of course even more advanced trekkers who'd like a shorter four or five day jaunt. It's a well-trodden path and at night times you sleep in little village guesthouses along the way, cheap places with identical menus (but prices the rise the higher you climb) and clean beds. Don't forget to wake up early for the Poon Hill sunrise. I won't forget it.

“ABC base camp trek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

Highly recommend this trek. You need a medium amount of fitness and plan to walk up to elevation of 4100 meters ( from about 1000 m start point). You will cover about 80 km ( plan to walk about 4-6 hours / most days) over 9-10 days and plan on walking up & down thousands of well constructed stone steps and some trails. The accommodation is lodges/ tea houses ( very inexpensive, delightful/ friendly/ basic but comfortable. Food is "set tourist menu" is identical at all lodges in the conservation park area, includes pizza, pasta, eggs of every style, cost is inexpensive and served with friendly smile. Best route/ faster route is probably more direct naya pul - ghandruk to chhomrong options on way up/ down. Other versions are longer hours and harder work for the unprepared!! Enjoy its brilliant.

“Ghorepani Poon Hill Trekking with RajNepal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Ghorepani Poon-hill trek is a colorful and challenging short adventure into the Annapurna region. Which is one of the famous short trekking In Nepal.The trail winds through patchwork valleys, dense mossy forests and past icy waterfalls where you can stop to cool your face? Around every corner is a tantalizing glimpse of the high mountains, whole horizons of which will be revealed to you as you reach the high points of your trek. This trek in the Annapurna foothills to the astounding viewpoint on Poon Hill offers all the best of trekking in Nepal. Enjoy trekking in the spectacular mountain scenery through charming villages inhabited by the Gurungs, Magars dense rhododendron forests full of birds and deep sub-tropical valleys, all set below the Annapurna with the picturesque peak of Machhapuchhare (Fish Tail Peak) dominating the skyline. At the climax of this trek you will climb Poon Hill at dawn to enjoy one of the most spectacular mountain views on Earth. As the sun touches the snow-capped summits the Himalayan giants, Dhaulagiri (8167m) and Annapurna (8091m) along with a maze of other peaks, slowly begin to appear, like magic, before our eyes. A rewarding trek that can be enjoyed by every lover of nature and beautiful landscape.
