    5 days trekking To Poon Hill

      |   ANTON0722, Spain

    We are a couple of 63 and 59 years old and booked a trekking with Top of the world . It has been a wonderful experience. All the details to make a 5 day’s trekking were perfect. The guest house booked each day were as they told us ( you have all the necessities covered . This was our first trekking in Nepal and “Top of the world “ help us to choose the best one for our possibilities, Apart of all this we have to talk about our guide SOM TAMANG, What a great guide they gave us.Thanx to him we could reach the top of Poon Hill (3300m). From the beginning he marked the rhythm that we had to take in order not to exhaust ourselves by the altitude. He was looking out for us and we felt very comfortable where we were going. He is a very nice and kind person We feel very happy with this fantastic trip

    Makes your life easier when travelling to Nepal. Great guides!

      |   Smanac, Greece

    First time traveled to Nepal. Wαnted to do some sightseeing in Kathmandu and of course an easy trekking tour (you' re in Nepal!!). I was lucky cause this agency was less than 1 minute walking from my hotel. Janardan, the owner, arranged for me a temple tour around Kathmandu the next day. Being satisfied then I decided to plan the rest of my journey with him. I didn't have many days, so I booked the short Annapurna trek (4-days), which is actually tiring with many steps and uphill routes (I recommend doing the longer trek which is easier and more things to see) and then spend 3 days in Chitwan National Park. Transportation, food, overnights at hotels and lodges, tours, guides and park entry fees were included. Price was fair! Kathmandu temples are must see sights and very spiritual. I thinκ 1 day is enough. Annapurna trek was the highlight of my trip with breathtaking views of the Himalayas at Poonhill but also during our trek. My guide, Bibek, was really nice and very helpful. Thank you and sorry for many stops during trekking :) Chitwan park was ok, with some wildlife to watch, safari tour and canoeing at the river. Going from snowy mountain to a tropical forest in 1 day is always interesting. In general Top of the World Adventure is a great agency in which you can buy a variety of tours and activities or you can custom your own trip. Staff were really friendly and flexible in everything you may need. If ever return to Nepal I will definitely trust this agency again !

    Great experience hiking Poon Hill in 3 days.

      |   Camden B, United Kingdom

    We had an excellent time hiking to Poon Hill. We had talked to several other agencies about doing a 3-day trek, and they had all said no. We happened upon Top of the World by accident, and they made it happen! Our guide, Raju was friendly, helpful and professional. He took care of everything and made sure that we had clean rooms and warm food in a timely manner. We were very happy that we found them, and would recommend them to anyone hoping to do a trek in the Annapurna National Park.
