    Very nice place and great views

    This holiday I didn't want to go anywhere else but just stay at a nice hotel in Pokhara and relax with my husband. But, my husband is a restless guy, he wouldn't just end this trip without doing a trek. I found the best deal after contacting Ram. So we decided to go to Poon Hill, it wasn't our first time in Nepal or even to Poon Hill. But, it surprises you every time. It was our middle ground, I wanted a laid back holiday, he couldn't stay and relax at a place. So, in short, it was yet another fun time with Sublime Trails.

    Views to make you really happy

    I''m not a kind of person who can walk a lot. But, Im proud to say that I completed my 3 days Poonhill trek. It wasn't easy for someone like me, If someone takes an hour to walk a distance I will take 3 hours for me to walk the same. Our guide was absolutely humble, caring and encouraging so he took care of us. When we reached Poon Hill, I forgot everything for few minutes. It was just brilliant how beautiful the mountains looked from there.
