Hello! I enjoyed the trekking a lot. It was long enough to enjoy the jungle, and not too long to get bored. Akke was a great companion offering many stops and lunch brakes during the trek. Sunrise at the Poon Hill was very rewarding the view steps you have to take in the morning. Trip is quite pricey, but you don't get it cheaper. People with back problems should take a jeep or if bus, then should not sit at the back seats. No heating in rooms, but once you get under the blanket, you're fine. They have organic food in the guesthouse. I am a soup lover, so had a tomato and hot and sour soup ordered. Have fun :)

The Pokhara Cable Car Tour offers an unparalleled bird's-eye view of Fewa Lake and the majestic Himalayas. It's a breathtaking experience that truly captures the beauty of Nepal's natural wonders. Highly recommended for anyone seeking awe-inspiring vistas!
