Raj and the team made our Poon Hill trip very special. His local knowledge made such a difference and we learnt so much about Nepal. Poon Hill is a perfect excursion for the more "mature" traveller who wants a do-able but challenging and totally rewarding adventure or for someone with limited time in the country. I'll never forget the spectacular rhododendron forests, the spontaneous round of applause as we watched the sunrise over Annapurna ... or all those stone steps!! If you're thinking about a trip to Nepal .... Do it .. but be prepared to be blown away by the madness or Kathmandu, the beauty of the countryside and the kindness of the people.
