Will be in Kathmandu for a short period of time in April and would like to do a short 5 or 6 days trek. I have seen videos of Poon Hill trek and just love the scenery. However, it is much further from Kathmandu than the Helambu Trek thus requiring bus ride/plane to the starting point.
We are in great physical condition so altitude and difficulty of the trail would not be a factor.
Are both treks very similar in culture, scenery and difficulties?
Which would you recommend?
Will a guide be necessary or are the trails clearly marked?
