Mardi Himal Trek

Poon Hill is an astounding goal for individuals who are searching for a short and simple trek in the Annapurna locale. This spot is exceptionally near the delightful lake city of Pokhara. The Poonhill climate and temperature are entirely positive which make trekking at this spot a wonderful encounter. In addition, it has a generally low height beneath 3500 m which make it safe to go for anybody stressed over elevation disorder. Subsequently there is no age obstruction and anybody can without much of a stretch do this trek. This trek offers perspectives on probably the most elevated mountains on the planet, for example, Annapurna South, Macchapucchre, Himalchuli and so forth. Likewise, the trail experiences wonderful towns with well disposed local people and excellent common landscapes. All things considered, Poon slope is a perfect goal for individuals of all ages gathering and with normal wellness.
