This is a great choice for time-limited people who want to see a lot of Nepal in a short time. Very easy to do extra or change things (we opted out of riding on elephants in Chitwan due to environmental concerns, and very easily swapped onto a jeep safari and canoe ride instead), canyoning is included but you can add a bungee jump (it's very cheap compared to aussie prices!) and although the itinerary takes you to Poon Hill for sunrise, you can also climb up the night before for sunset if you're feeling really energetic and want to see the view twice!
Sujan our guide was friendly and patient, highly recommend.
This is an easy trek for experienced hikers but there is not much flat terrain - it is up and down most of the 6 day trek, but totally doable for people of average fitness.
We went just before the start of 'peak season' so most of our hotels were quiet, and they were great. Ram (the trek coordinator i think?) was careful to remind us that the hotels on the trek were not the same standard as in the cities, but we had no problem with any of them. Clean and private, and most of them had private bathrooms too!
Highly recommend buying toilet paper or tissues before the trek and carry it everywhere! Always keep some tissues in your pocket just in case - no bathrooms will supply them.
One other thing I will mention is that tipping is accepted and expected. As Australians we don't have much experience with this, but be aware before you go somewhere so you can keep some money on you for guides and porters.
Food was delicious everywhere but you will find it difficult to get an authentic Nepalese meal! Most dishes will come out without any chilli (even the curries!) so ask for spice if you want it (especially on your trek!) Dahl Bhat is available everywhere and you should definitely try it a few times. It will usually be the provided meal if your itinerary says "meal included".

My experience with Imperial Nepal was just excellent.
The people were extremely helpful in every way possible - from organising the tour to assisting with buying/renting the right trekking gear. My trip couldn't have been better.
If you book with Imperial Nepal make sure you'll ask for Harri as your guide - he's the best. Harri makes sure you're alright all the time and he makes sure you've got the best time. He's choosing great teahouses with the best rooms within for you, he gives tipps for what better not to eat, makes sure you're healthy.
What I really enjoyed was Harri teaching me some words of the Nepali language.
He taught us the Nepali game and we taught him how to play UNO - you've never seen a guy as happy as him while playing cards.

To make a long story short; he's the best guide and as a trip depends a lot on you're guide as well it's the best decision to choose Harri.
Thanks Imperial Nepal for this unforgettable trip!

We had a private 4-day Poonhill trek with Imperial Nepal Treks. The trek is not really hard for an experienced hiker. The lodges were good with private bathrooms, the local Nepalese people who run the lodges are really nice and the food is good.

Our trip in Poonhill and the hotel in Kathmandu was organized well by Paras! We changed our trip at the last minute this was no problem for Paras.

My friend Robert and I traveled through Nepal for one month. Right after arriving at our hotel in Kathmandu we arranged our two-week during trek to Everest Base Camp and Kala Patthar, organized by Imperial Nepal Treks. After having checked our backpacks we flew to Lukla airport where our guide, Hari, awaited us. I would definitely ask for Hari since he really enriched our trekking experience: he finds the best places for food/accommodation and takes really good care of you! He and the tour operator were also very flexible when we wanted to change something in the itinerary during our trek. In other words, it was a great experience!

We had the best time on our visit to Annapurna. Sujan our guide became our friend over the 4 days. He was endlessly patient (particularly when I was very slow at some of the up hill sections!) and very knowledgable about the area. He looked after us and made sure our experience was the best it could be. We would very much recommend Imperial Nepal Treks to anyone wishing to experience the Annapurna region

Many thanks again
