Their unique culture and hospitality are quite fascinating. The landscape view of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna from the Poon Hill viewpoint is quite extraordinary. The height of Poon Hill viewpoint is 3,210 meters. Also, the sunrise and sunset view from there is superb.

This short trek gives you an opportunity to view the magnificent mountains that are above 8,000m — mountains like Dhaulagiri 8,167m and Annapurna 8,091m among others. The variation in geography makes this trekking quite interesting. Moreover, a dense forest of rhododendron, verdant green hills and numerous species of birds make this trek more incredible.

    I was recommended to contact Mohan by some friends who had done a few treks with North Nepal agency and I’m really happy I did so because from the first time I contacted him, he has been attentive, kind and demonstrated a high sense of customer care, accommodating my needs and adjusting the plans even with short notice!
    I’m also very very happy and satisfied with the guide assigned to us! Niraj was this incredible young boy full of energy and always willing to explain the local traditions, clarify all the questions and solve any requests we might have. He has been an incredible company during the time we spent in Pokhara and in the 3-day PoonHill trek!
    Would definitely recommend these guys to everyone looking to spend some hassle free time in Nepal!!!
    Namaste!!

    Very professional company
    This team is awesome! from the first e-mails with the boss Mohan, i knew i was in good hands for my trek! I did the Poon hill one and it was truly awesome!
    My guide Bipin was really friendly, knowledgable, and made sure I had everything I needed, at all times.
    The accomodations were good and the food as well!

    After this trek, because of their great service, I booked a Safari to Chitwan with the agency! it was a lot of fun too!

    So, thanks Mohan and the team, I highly recommend!!

    Amazing experience with an excellent guide
    We had a wonderful trip in poonhill this week togther, two daughters in our 20’s and our mother in her 50’s. Baharat was very patient, proffessional, and fun! He organized our trip thoughtfully with flexibility and fit each day to our specific needs and desires. We knew that we could rely on him with anything, and trust his judegement, decision making and consideration in planning. His tremendous knowledge of the area was very helpful and he took the time to answer any questions we had. He is a good person, interesting to talk to, comfortable to be around and fun to laugh with. We even had a small and cozy dance party with him and our hosts in one of the guest houses during the trek. We contacted him from Israel before our arrival which made it very convinient for us to be able to have someone for consulting in advance. Baharat was a very important part of our amazing but challanging trip and we highly reccomend him for anyone in Nepal.

    Fantastic 4 Night / 5 Day Trek to Poon Hill and Muldae Peak
    My friend and I walked around Pokhara and spoke to a number of trekking companies. Mohan at North Nepal was not only competitive on price and the most attentive, but he clearly cared about providing a great service for his customers.

    We were looking for the 4 Night / 5 Day trek to Poon Hill, and were recommended the Muldae Hill Viewpoint, which meant a little extra walking but was ultimately quieter and worth every moment of trekking for its extraordinary views.

    Our guide Ananda was courteous and kind, going out of his way to source extra amenities such as blankets when we were cold and boot crampons for the snow. He was patient and supportive while trekking and sorted solid accommodation along the way. Our porter Khim, though speaking little English, was a lifesaver and we would not have been able to complete the trek without him.

    All in all, very happy with the price and service provided.

    Dipak was a great guide!
    I randomly chose the agency and I guess I got lucky. I came in asking for a helper/porter for my five day Poon Hill circuit trek and was recommended to take Dipak. He was amazing. He put my mind at ease as he not only guided the way, but arranged for all the accommodations and even carried my backpack (I’m glad it wasn’t too heavy but it did help). Dipak is a very pleasant young man and his company was much appreciated. He’s not intrusive and always sensitive to your needs. If you use this agency I highly recommend you ask for Dipak specifically.
