Jomsom Muktinath Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking. 14 Nov 2016.
Comments: “Adventure Treks Nepal Jomson Poon Hill Trek".
We have just returned from our Third trek with Gyanendra and Adventure Treks Nepal.
Our First trek was to the Annapurna Sanctuary in October 2010, we took our 3 sons and Gyanendra was our guide, we had an wonderful family experience and the boys loved the trek and Gyanendra.
The Second Trek was to Everest Base Camp via Gokyo Lakes and Chola Pass.
Our recent third Trek in Nov 2016 was to Jomson and Muktinath and then to Poon Hill.
Of Course we used Adventure Treks Nepal (ATN) again, and they did not let us down, they were brilliant! We keep coming back because ATN provide a wonderful experience.
All 3 treks trek were organised to perfection, but when adjustments needed to be made they were immediately reorganising to maximise our experience.
Some examples of this expertise,
When we arrived in Kathmandu for our 2nd trip to Everest, flights to Lukla had been stopped for several days, and we had planned to spend 2 days in Kathmandu before starting our trek. After consulting with us ATN were able to get us on limited flights the next day and reschedule our itinerary. Flight's stopped again the next day and we would have been stuck but instead we were already away on our amazing trek. Gyan Karki, the manager of ATN was tremendous ,his attention to detail was without fault, everything was as promised and superbly arranged and well executed.
On our recent trip the flight to Jomson couldn't leave due to strong winds that the Twin Otter aircraft couldn't handle. So Gyan Karki back at the office in Kathmandu, organized a helicopter to take us up to Jomson, but even better he negotiated a cheep price for us because the helicopter was already going up to Jomson to bring back people who missed their flight.
We were very impressed and had an amazing bonus flight in the helicopter!!!
Our guide Gyanendra is amazing, he is more than a guide has become a wonderful friend. His passion for the mountains, the history and life in Nepal is exceptional. Our well being and satisfaction was always Gyanendra's number one priority.
During the treks he plans the days to suit us, he is flexible and books tea houses in advance that are alway the pick of what is available. He told us the best and safest meals to choose and was always monitoring our acclimatisation, on day 5 of our trek to Everest he kept us in Macchermo an extra day when we needed time to acclimatise then rearranged our itinerary for us with ease, and neither of us had any altitude sickness.
I can without hesitation recommend ATN to anyone who wants to go trekking in Nepal. Good honest operators are hard to find, and these guys are the best at what they do. We have many more trips to Nepal to come, and will always use ATN, Thank You Gyan and Gyanendra for another unforgettable holiday, we still have "very big smiles".
