Morning sun rise and wonderful mountain view from poon hill

2022

Dp, Guide, and his team were very helpful in our Ghorepani poon hill trek last April. The trekking team made our trip mesmerizing, memorable, and full of utilization and had a great time. I had some problems with health and rainfall but DP and his team quickly made my health condition good and motivate me to complete the trek over the poon hill trek. Due to very good hospitality, affordable price and friendly behavior. I would highly recommend it to anyone for Nepal’s dream path treks or trekking around all of Nepal.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trek in Janauary 2019

2019

At the beginning of 2019, we took 7 days hike in the Annapurna mountain range in Nepal i.e. the Ghorepani Poonhill Trek. This is an easy trek so we didn’t prepare a lot and we were a success to complete this trek.  I have a small pain while going downstairs from Khandruk to Nayapul. Luckily Nepal Dream Path Treks Guide has got first aid box for the home treatment. overall we love this trek and highly recommend Nepal Dream Path to my friends.
