  • Ghorepani Poon Hill Mardi Himal Trek highly recommended

    - Ji Hyeon (Jane) Yun, Korea, Republic of

    My Name is Jane, I wanna share with you my experience so far with Rugged Trails Nepal. I started off at Ulleri taking the ghorepani trek all the way to moving into second trek called Mardi Himal. I have to say from the very begging of the trek, Nirajan have been super super accommodating giving all the information  for the traveling and I meet my Guide Shrawan who is been super super helpful not just interns of guiding but also he picks up on your personal sort of treat character. He actually help me to tailor the trip as I only supposed to do the Mardi Himal. He thought I will also enjoy the Ghorepani Poon Hill trek which was amazing. All I can say is the view, the scenes every corner you turn you got experience something that, I don’t know you if you have seen before for me I have never seen anything like these before. All I just can say in one sentence is that Money can’t buy these. It is an out of the world experience, it has been such a interesting but also such a rewarding experience for me. If you are considering the annapurna region, Nepal the Ghorepani Poon Hill Mardi Himal Trek or anywhere else ABC or any of the other annapurna treks highly recommended. If you into the lush, the forest, the greens and all that definitely the place to be. I think I have really cleans my lung being here, I am a person that I was Korean but lives in Dubai. If you are anywhere desert or Middle Eastern region definitely something that you come and enjoy and get a life time experience that you can talk about to your families, to your next generation so on. Yeah, if you are into it and or if you are looking into it take a leave.
