Nepal is a paradise for mountain climbers, and just for lovers of the mountains and trekking. After all, there are the highest mountains of the earth Himalayas! Eight of the fourteen eight-thousanders of the world, including the highest mountain Mount Everest (8848 m).

The Nepalese government has begun granting permission for short treks in the Himalayas only since 1964. Currently, the organization of this type of tourism is engaged in many agencies, both in Nepal and its chapels. Travel agencies offer climbing and trekking in the mountains of varying lengths and levels of difficulty, which would virtually anyone can afford to get in touch with a unique world around these places.

The main options for trekking and mountain climbing are conducted in four districts of Nepal.

1. To the north of Kathmandu to Helambu Valley, Langtang and the sacred lake Gosaynkund.

2. In the east, the tracks are held in the Everest region, and include a visit to the base camp climbing, villages locals Sherpa of Namche Bazar, Lukla and monastery Thangboche.

3. In the western region of the tracks are held in Surket, Jumla and to Lake Rara.

4. In the central region of the tracks starts from Pokhara.

Trekking in the Himalayas from Pokhara

Pokhara is the starting point of trekking in the Annapurna region. Hence there are a large number of routes, from one day to several weeks. In Pokhara has an airport from which you can fly to Jomsom (2770), the capital of Mustang. Ticket cost about $ 80, the flight time of 30-40 minutes. Some tourists after arrival in Dzhomosom go down back to Pokhara and some higher into the mountains. As an alternative to reach Jomsom and walk back to the plane. Very popular route up the hill Poon Hill (Poon Hill) 3210 m., Since it does not require a very serious physical training for mountaineering and it offers a magnificent view of the Himalayas.

This route I decided to do.

Annapurna trekking prices

In order to go to trekking on Annapurna need to issue a permit. An independent tour today issued a green card the price of $ 20, for those who go through a travel agency, the agency draw up for their clients blue permit price is $ 10.
You can also hire a porter, that is, the assistant, who will be for you things, and also can serve as a guide. Price porter about 800-1000 Nepalese rupees per day, depends on both agreement.

There are at least two options for tracking up to Poon Hill.

The first - a four. First two days to go to the village of Ghorepani. On the third day early in the morning ascent to Poon Hill Hill (Poon Hill). Ascent takes about an hour, but only rose above 400 meters. Immediately after lifting two days way back to Pokhara.

The second option - a three-day. The first part of the trek to Poon Hill, the same as in the four-day itinerary. But the way back is along the same path that traveled to Poon Hill. And way back is no longer two, but one day.

I chose the three-day route. Firstly the main goal I had Poon Hill and great views from it. Second time to spend an extra day to explore the Nepalese villages I did not want, as such I've seen during the ascent. Had to go up and get to the Mustang, then certainly I would like to visit those places. But that's another story. And now, my trekking and photos of the Himalayas, which I managed to take a picture of a hill Poon Hill.
