We trek through rhododendron forests, woodlands and temperate forests, deep into mountainous habitat looking out for Langur monkeys. As we gain height, forests open out onto incredible panoramic views overlooking valleys dotted with farms and villages and the soaring mountains of the region stretch before us. We pass through Nepalese villages where we get a fascinating glimpse into the traditions of the mountain people including the Gurung, who have their own religion and culture. We stay in tea houses along the way and hike along paths, tracks and an impressive flight of 3,500 stone steps that make their way down to the valley floor. The highlight of our challenge is a trek to the summit of Poon Hill where, as a group, we watch the sun rise over the mighty snow-capped peaks and flood the valleys with light. As dawn breaks, we see the magnificent (8,091m) to the north and Dhaulagiri (8,167m) to the west a sight that will stay with us forever. We celebrate our fantastic trekking achievement with a dinner and party before returning to Kathmandu and the chance to explore this incredible city. at a glance Activity: Trekking Location: Region, Nepal Duration: 10 Days / 5 days trekking Difficulty: Moderate Distance: 70 km Group size: trip highlights Trek through the heart of the Himalayas Summit Poon Hill Stay in the tea houses along the route Watch the sun rise over the peaks Take in magic views of Macchapuchre Explore Kathmandu Relax in Pokhara Action Challenge have been leading inspirational team adventures across the world for individuals, private groups, charities and corporate clients since Our trips enable people to experience the world s most exhilarating locations, often in aid of charity.
