Mardi Himal and Poon Hill Trek
We had a great time with the trek team, who both looked after us well. Our guide Ram was very good at adjusting our schedule on trek, making best use of the sometimes bad weather, and taking account of our abilities.
The tea houses were better than we expected and were generally well organized too. The hotels organized in Thamel, Pokhara, and Bhaktapur were all perfect for us. The trek up through the forest to the final mountain ridge was very enjoyable, and we did get some fine views between the rain, hail, and snow.
