“Out of the world experience”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

My group of friends decided to explore Nepal during one of our long summer breaks. It definitely turned out to be an experience which i'll remember for life. We embarked for the Poonhill Trek with having previously received recommendation from friends. The entire team of thirdpole treks assisted us with the preparation for the trek. All it took were some emails and they provided us with the itinerary, cost breakdown and packing lists.

Our guide- Mr. Aneel and porters-Bharat Karki and Adarsha, gave us great company throughout the 9 days we spent in Nepal. They gave us insights into all sorts of information regarding Nepal and took excellent care of us. They were also very flexible with the itinerary. On one of the days we were told about a Hot Spring facility near one of the villages(Jhinu). it was not part of our itinerary to visit that location, however, Aneel reassured us that if we were able to trek fast, we could possibly reach Jhinu and enjoy the Hot Spring. I'm glad that we were informed about this and we definitely had a great time there.

Both the porters and guide were much older than us but never for a second did we feel the difference in the age gap. They were great company for all of us throughout the trek.

Adventure Thirdpole Trek, is a small company which has been running for 20 years now and i believe due to its small size, the guides and porters really take good care of you. Even the owner himself, Mr. Deepak made sure that we were well taken care of, making sure that all the arrangements made were comfortable and easy.

If you are looking for a good time in Nepal, i'd definitely recommend Adventure Thirdpole Treks for you.

“Amazing trek with highly experienced and friendly guides”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

We did the Ghorepani/Poon Hill trek with Thirdpole in May 2014 and was highly impressed by their professionalism and energy throughout our entire trip. Both our guides, Jaya and Aneel, had extensive trekking and guiding experiences under their belts; and took great efforts to attend to our needs, answer questions and motivate us throughout our week long trek. Traveling with us were also a team of 6 porters who were extremely friendly and helped to make us as comfortable as reasonably possible. Needless to say the trail and views of the Himalayas were amazing; its beauty is raw and rustic. Naturally being urbanites there were many moments during the trek when we felt fatigued but the team's positivity and hospitality kept our spirits up.

If Nepal is on your travel list I highly recommend Adventure Thirdpole Treks for their professionalism, hospitality and flexibility in itineraries. Our group are already considering where and when our next trek in Nepal will be!

“Awesome trip ”
Reviewed May 31, 2014 via mobile

I travelled with Thirdpole treks on the Poon hill route this May. As a trekking beginner (and pretty much unfit) the guides and porters were very patient with our progress, always looking out for our safety.

In addition our team (Jaya and Aneel and the team of porters) were an entertaining bunch and kept our spirits high throughout the trek.

They also accompanied us up Poon Hill twice (sunset and sun rise) and patiently guided us through the altitude.

The trek was well organized with good tea house choices and flexibility in the itinerary to cater for different trekking abilities.

Would highly recommend this trekking company for its professionalism.

Regards

“It's more than just the views at Poon Hill”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The sunrise at Poon Hill is definitely breathtaking but what matters more, was the amazing guides and friendly porters provided by Advenure Thirdpole. These people are so encouraging, professional and caring. I was down with fever during the trek and they constantly asked if I was feeling alright to continue. They (including the porters) are always ready to answer our questions and sometimes silly frequent questions like "How long more do we have to trek?". Geez.. And the answer to that silly question is always accurate.

What surprised me more was the impromptu birthday bash organised by them in one of the lodge during the trek. They even managed to get a decent birthday cake!! How cool is that!

I will definitely go back to Adventure Thirdpole if I am going back to Nepal for trekking again. I would recommend Adventure Thirdpole to anyone who is interested to trek Nepal.

“Amazing trek with outstanding guides !”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

I made my poor wife do this trek with me. We trained for this trek but as 1st timers trekking nepal, we were the slowest among our group of friends. Our guide, Jaya and Aneed really took care of us most of the way, reassuring us that we are doing fine. That really helped us a lot and we are very very grateful to them.

They also found out that one of the team member's birthday happen to be on the last day of the trek. The third pole team prepared balloons and a birthday cake for her! At 2100m.... Can u imagine that!

Highly recommended.
